This last year I did two solo motorcycle tours across Oman. It was a life changing experience for me. People often ask me... aren't you scared traveling alone.... ? especially traveling in a Muslim country ?!?! ....
With all this negative hype on the media, people's fear driven mindsets towards them, and this new "Muslim Ban" in America. I am here to say- I have never been treated so well in my life! To the point that it brought me to tears by the sheer kindness of these people. Being a single female on a bike, people just wanted to take care of me. Everywhere I went, I was invited into homes, cooked copious amounts of food, and taken care of as if I was their own family. Not once was I judged for what I was wearing, looked down upon because I was a woman, questioned about my religion, or felt threatened in any way whatsoever. It was humans helping a human. This is HUMANITY. the WHOLE world can learn something from these people, and I am deeply hurt and affected by the misleading negative judgments that they have fallen under. People in the west are quick to judge, driven by fear and less open then the majority of people that I encounter on my travels. I really hope to inspire people and possibly change their outlook on some things.
This is a little montage I put together of my adventures in Oman. The crazy roads, some of my struggles, and the beautiful people I met along the way. I was traveling on a borrowed KLR 650 that was too big for me. Because of that, nearly every day I dropped the bike, and most of the time it was when I was standing still :S hahah Not knowing I could pick it up ( only found out after the trip) I would run for help. People would immediately stop what they were doing and help me. They would then proceed to give me whatever food and water they had with them ensuring that I was okay, fixing my bike if it needed attention, and then I would be invited back to their village to meet their families. People were shocked to learn I was on my own and only wanted to take care of me. One morning while camping I was greeted by an old man. (1:27 ) He was very shocked to learn that I was on my own and riding such a big bike... he said " same like donkey": He then wanted to help me pack all of my camping gear away. He was just so happy that he could help me.
At the end of the video I included a small little speech I had made after my one bike rescue. IT was actually a huge long drawn out speech which I had to cut down. I honestly had never met two nicer individuals. Their kindness literally brought me to tears. It suddenly made me think.... I have been given a true gift here. Through my travels, and my videos, to be able to document these beautiful acts of kindness, culture, and interactions with people. To share with the world this beauty. To inspire, and ignite change of thought. I felt at that time, as though I had lived my entire life up until this moment. All the struggles I've faced, all of the pain I've gone through. So that I would be able to have the courage to travel alone, that I would be so compassionate towards others, and that I had the creative background to be able to share it in such a way that would be easy to watch. This was the life I was meant to live, and I'm so happy I get to share it with everyone !
I did do a full daily video vlogg of each day of my travels which I will be getting to soon !!
Annnnnnnd... I must apologize for the crappy sound quality at the end... There was terrible wind that I tried to remove in the editing program. I'm just learning this program and its all new to me, so I tweaked it the best I could !! sorry for your ears :S
