Alison Costa

"When the first leg of my flight from Buffalo to Nicaragua was cancelled due to a snowstorm, I quickly rented a car and drove 20 hours straight to Fort Lauderdale to catch my connecting flight. I made it to the gate with 15 min to spare!"

Bianca Shaw

"I drove a scooter through heavy downpour to have dinner in a small Cuban town with a German Shepherd…who later saved me from a mad goat."

Chloe Conacher

"I went sky diving in Australia, where they have no safety training/regulations for first-timers. "

Chris Hopewell

"I bought my first house at 21, but I was 27 before I saw a palm tree in real life!"

Christy Moorhead

"I fought an iguana in Costa Rica that attacked my daughter – for her pizza."

Dmitri Pasricha

"I took my colleagues from Tanzania, Ethiopia, and Ukraine to their first ever hockey game during their visit to Canada. Ended up leaving early because it was too cold for them."

Hamid Hashimi

"When I was 8 years old and coming to Canada, It was my first time being in the elevator and didn’t know how it worked. Every time the door would open, suddenly, everything would change. "

Hannah Heinson

"While on an overnight ferry from Greece to Italy I went to a party, I was excited to go until I saw that the only people there were my friends and elderly truck drivers."

Hongyi Liu

"During my first trip on an airplane (age 5), I accidentally locked myself in the washroom. After the crew spent 10 mins tearing it apart, I somehow managed to unlock the door."

Jamshid Hashimi

"When I was 15, I organized the neighbourhood kids into a soccer team in my home village in rural Afghanistan. I took the task so seriously that I collected money from each of the kids to order Real Madrid t-shirts for each of us and I contracted a kid to serve us milk every morning after the morning exercises. Despite my intrepid management efforts, in the end this budding team scattered all over the world and not one of us turned out to make it as a professional footballer."

Jason Hanley

“I proposed to my fiancee earlier than planned after a whale jumped out of the water right in front of us.”

Keivan Norouzi

“I made a good friend in Tokyo and spent hours talking and visiting new places with him, even though we didn’t speak the same language!”

Kyle Lubieniecki

"Despite suffering from mild heatstroke in Barcelona, I hitched a ride to Pamplona to run with the bulls, twice."

Manav Chugh

"My first-night backpacking in Germany, I slept in a train station, the next day I jumped off a 30-foot cliff in Königssee"

Matt Capobianco

"I was once chased by a wild boar in the Philippines while on a satellite phone in the middle of the night. It turns out they have really great night vision."

Mira Ghaddar

"I had my first shark encounter during a trip to the Maldives. I ended up swimming towards it to take a closer picture until I realized it could turn at any point and come back right at me!"

Mair Greenfield

"I accepted an internship in South Korea as a translator but it turned out that I was a kindergarten teacher when I arrived for my first day."

Ness Kenalty

"I once shared a campfire with a Wildebeest. He came less than 3 feet from me and I didn’t move a muscle."

Rajanthi Manivannan

“My biggest surprise while living in Kenya was their love of country music. I never thought I’d move to East Africa and find people jamming to Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers.”

Ruff Fancy

"I found and broke into a bag of kibble - and ate so much I couldn’t move for days."

Tariq Fancy

"After riding an ostrich in South Africa, I crossed into Swaziland and crashed a high school reunion."

Tiffany Janzen

"I spent time living in China but it wasn't until I was back in Canada that I decided to pick up Mandarin!"

Brittnay Gauthier

"I trekked four miles through swarms of mosquitoes, with scorching sun on my back, then climbed a 20ft tall Inukshuk, to get to the geographical center of Canada, Baker Lake, Nunavut."
