Traveler Name: Cameron Ilcisin
Hometown: Sylvan Lake, AB, Canada
Countries I’ve travelled to otherwise: USA
Why I travel: I travel cause it’s fun, a chance to gain new experiences and get that sense of adventure. I mean travel means adventure right?? I also find it makes a person more humble in all aspects, it really opens the eyes to show that there is more than one way to live. It’s also a nice break from work and life lol.
My most embarrassing/hilarious travel story: I’d call this one more hilarious than embarrassing. We were in Yogyakarta, Indonesia in the middle of doing the famous scavenger hunt. When we came across a large group of young teenage school girls on a field trip. There were probably 50+ of these young girls and the moment they saw me, you’d swear they had just seen a famous celebrity. So needless to say I probably spent 30 minutes taking selfies with these young girls. It got so excessive that my group actually went ahead with the scavenger hunt without me until I could catch up. They must not see a whole lot of tourists where they were from, but definitely makes a guy feel a bit better about himself hahaha.
Top 3 items I can’t travel without:
1. Gotta have a good pair of shades, tinted just enough that others can’t see where your eyes are looking (wink, wink, nudge, nudge).
2. Obviously a nice hat to go along with the shades. Also helps hide the greasy hair when you haven’t showered in a few days.
3. Most importantly a good pair of headphones, makes those long flights and travel days much more enjoyable.
What I love about traveling with FnEZ: I love how easy it is to travel with FnEZ, you don’t have to worry about too much, just kick back and enjoy. Though the memories you make with the group is definitely the best part!!! So many good times that I’ll remember forever.
Next bucket list item I NEED to check off: Well I had the chance to get PADI certified in the Gili Islands but decided not to and I’ve regretted it ever sense. So that’s probably near the top of my list. I’ve also been looking into hiking Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. So we’ll see what happens first.
My future travel plans: Nothing planned yet, kinda focusing on work for now but really want to check off Philippines so maybe next year?? Don’t be surprised if you see me in Nicaragua for New Year’s though!!
