Don’t we all make questionable decisions while being intoxicated? Whether it’s drunk dialing someone, losing your wallet or dancing like mad like there’s no tomorrow.
Shit Happens right! So many of our drunken impulsive decisions are followed by immediate and immense regret. But, one guy proved that not all decisions made while being wasted are bad decisions.
Meet Jamie, he’s 24 years of age, works at Scottish bank and he loves to Drink.
His love for the booze got him in the headlines. Here’s how he did it..
Step 1) Went clubbing on a saturday night, got some shots, jagerbombs, beer and got wasted!
Step 2) At 5am, accidentally booked a flight ticket to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil which costed 520 pounds (52,000 Rs).
Step 3) Woke up, checked his phone and saw an email from the airline confirming his flight to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. And he had no recollection of the purchase, he didn’t even remember mentioning Brazil to anybody the previous night.
Step 4) Called the airline but they refused to cancel the flight tickets as the 24 hr cancellation period had expired. He was left with 2 options either Loose 520 pounds or Take time off work and Go to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Step 5) He decided to pack his bags and headed solo to South America. He visited Brazil, Argentina, Peru, and had a trip of a lifetime.
He started his journey in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Headed to Iguazu falls on the border with Argentina.
Hiked up to the incredible Machu Picchu in Peru..
Finally before leaving, he spent time at the Sloth Sanctuary, an odd little place run by an old Brazilian woman in the middle of nowhere. He spent a few days helping out with the sloths that had been rescued from poachers. Visiting the sloth sanctuary was one of the highlights, he completely fell in love with the animals.
“It has really made me realize that you just need to take risks sometimes and get over your fear if you want to get the most from life.”, he said.
