3. Lessons of the Wild West (Part 2)
Imagine a place where kids still grow up to become cowboys, where people live among wolves, and where losing a relative to a bear is something you should rightly worry about. Estelle and her sister Magaly tell us the story of their adventure in the Wild Canadian West. Far from being a regular outdoors experience, they discovered a world where the unexpected is the norm. It is a story in two parts about grit, solidarity, and self-awareness where the laws of nature apply to all animals. Humans included. In this second and last part, things go south. British Columbia declares the state of emergency because of major wildfires raging in the region. The airport from which Estelle and Magaly were supposed to fly back home gets destroyed, so the decision becomes obvious: stay, and take part in the fight.  You'll discover the behind the scenes of a community's battle against nature's most dangerous forces and you'll experience the (very) surprising turns this story took.  Enjoy the show!

It is a story in two parts about grit, solidarity, and self-awareness where the laws of nature apply to all animals. Humans included. In this first part, we hope you’ll enjoy getting a new perspective on what living on the edge of your comfort zone means where your only option is to figure out a solution and grow. Every. Single.

1. Jump first. Figure it out later.
Amin Kasimov tells us the story of when he left everything on the side and flew to Senegal, a country he knew nothing about, to bring DIY solar lamp kits to kids living in the Senegalese outback. It's a story about his willingness to say yes to opportunities, even when they're far outside of his comfort zone.  In this episode, we hope you'll get inspired by the lessons he learned while undertaking that project. It's a journey about seeking discomfort, the effect chaos has on our ability to grow, and a human adventure about generosity, commitment, and people's ability to welcome strangers into their world, connect, and do good together. Amin is an entrepreneur currently working on www.brandfetch.io, a search engine for brand assets. More stories at www.estelleandramy.com
