5th Annual Nomadic Journey: Life Rediscovery in Vietnam

The perseverance of the Vietnamese people is unwavering, their spirituality is deep, they are hyper active in terms of fitness, and the plant-based foods they consume are pure and divine. This is why I chose a week-long mountain biking tour with Cambodia Cycling to rediscover life while riding from Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City) to Vung Tau beach city. Continue to travel wide my friends and never rest on your laurels.

After a 22-hour flight from Washington, DC the plan was detailed but exciting. Once breakfast was complete we transferred out of the bustling city Ho Chi Minh to Tan Phu Trung village then rode through the rubber tree plantation to the Cu Chi Tunnels which were dug by Vietnamese during the American War. Next we pedaled from Tan Thanh to Ngai Giao then to Xuyen Moc and Binh Chau Hot Springs to have mud baths. Afterwards the team cycled along the coast to Long Hai in route to Vung Tau Beach City. The last leg had us continuing along the coast while finishing with a climb up to Nho Mountain to enjoy the sea view from inside the arm of the famous Jesus Statue.

Fit Fathers Nomadic Journey 2014

Kimatni-Rawlins“Like a nomad, I travel the globe with one bag, choose running shoes and mountain bikes over taxi cabs.” Kimatni D. Rawlins aka K-Raw

As stated I’m headed out for my annual pilgrimage to rediscover life where nature dwells most prominently. This year’s journey will consist of touring Kathmandu, Nepal to trek the land by mountain bike while inheriting the spiritual inspiration of Siddhartha the Buddha since this region is his birthplace. I’m not sure what to expect or explore further, but I’m sure it’s patiently awaiting my arrival. After days of meditation, yoga and mystic writing in Nepal, I’m stopping in New Delhi to imagine the Taj Mahal in person. Toting just one backpack, I have packed only the essentials for basic human needs. Nuts, granola, reggae music, books, gear and the desire for a peaceful and kinder world devoid of prejudices, war, manipulation and cruelty to our fellow brothers and sisters as well as the sentient beings we share Planet Earth with. My goal is the continuation of ultimate enlightenment. Who would of thought a boy from the broken streets of Camden, NJ could have accomplished so much in such a short amount of time with the odds stacked against him. Reach high fellow Fit Fathers One Love!
