Comments about Steve's Adventure:
Steve, thank you for sharing your adventure with us. I feel as if I am at least a bit more worldly minded/aware. What an opportunity and irreplaceable experience. Blessings to you on your future endeavors!
It was quite awesome to see and be reminded of how good we have it here. Although I was and am still quite fascinated and envy the Tongans simple way of life. Many Americans would/could/should find their lives so much better off, by returning to simpler ways of living and enjoying life.
Thanks for sharing your Tonga PC adventure. What a great adventure you took just to leave the security of your job and go work for nothing. Sounds crazy but for sure you gain at another level. We lose when we share material things but sharing our mind/ideas, we gain.
