The Level Up Experience 2017-08-29T01:42:28+00:00

At the start of November I will be starting a 6-8 month backpack adventure across Central and South America with the objective to:

  • Put myself out of my comfort zone
  • Grow as a person
  • Explore different parts of world and learn about their culture
  • Meet new people
  • Break away from 9 to 5 office job and live a little.

With massive changes in my life that have happened recently it feels as though I’m starting off again at level one. (I know I’m a huge nerd right)
Thats when I thought all of the things I wanted to do pretty much equate to me wanting to level up as a person. That was when the Level Up Experience was born.

How will it work?

Over the course of my travels I will be completing various self and reader suggested quests . As I complete said quests I will be awarding myself experience points based on how difficult the quest was to complete. For example bungee jumping is obviously going to be worth a lot more experience than simply eating a taco.  I will be doing regular “XP Round Up” posts where I tally all of the experience and completed quests I have done.

Upon receiving enough experience points to level up I will earn luxury points which I can use to reward myself for my hard work. These luxury points will be used for things like staying in a private room for a night, getting a fancy meal or having a massage. Little creature comforts.

All of these quests, including my current level experience points and luxury points will all be tracked on my Quest Log page found under  the level progression menu option at the top.

If you have any interesting quest idea’s for me or know of any places,activities or things I must do in a particular country head over to my Submit a Quest page and make a suggestion 🙂
