The Power of Adaptation
How I adapted to living with NO RUNNING WATER | ► Episode 2 of the Podcast Travel Stories series features the return of a familiar guest!
As I promised you last week, we will have Eisa as a guest once again. In the previous episode, White Waters Took My GoPro, Eisa promised us a motivating tale, and so here he is to enlighten us…
On this episode, I share a story about how I was able to adapt in a very uncomfortable environment where I spent 2 weeks living on a pier of a small island in Cambodia with 5 hours of power, no running water, mosquito-infested, and extreme humidity while scuba diving every day working on a marine conservation project. The adaptation story is from a trip to Cambodia, on an island called Koh Rong, here is the video (vlog) I recorded on my first day arriving on the island: https://www.instagram.com/p/_mUhKknnL-/Eisa Alhabib
