What is adventure? An adventure is similar to an exploration or a feat of endurance, but an adventure has the connotation of being poorly planned.

These are stories of Scott’s adventures through life, like riding a bicycle around the world, being the Cultural Ambassador to Argentina and… hopefully, many more, big and small. I invite you along for the ride as I explore the inner and outer world and learn to become a better person.
