How Traveling Cured Me of Cancer e-Book Introduction

Much more important than being an expert world traveler, I am a cancer-free miracle child. I truly believe the impossible became possible through visiting spiritual centers across the globe: the monasteries at Meteora and Mount Athos in Greece, Jesus’ grave in Jerusalem, the Vatican, the apparition sites in Mexico City, Mexico, Fatima in Portugal, Lourdes in France and much more.

My love for traveling started when my Greek father took me to his homeland at the age of 14. My desire to explore the world only grew after being assaulted by a gang and immediately hospitalized on March 27, 1998. The gang members each received three years in state prison. The following year, when I turned 18 years old, I began traveling like crazy.

My journeys came to a halt at 29. My then Cedars Sinai neurologist William Chow sent me to a shrink, adamantly insisting that I was suffering from absolutely nothing more than severe anxiety. After nearly dying, a specialist got involved and properly diagnosed me with epilepsy. This is when Dr. Chow had his secretary Verna Daigle falsify medical records, specifically to protect his job. You can watch a video about this on Because of his misdiagnosis and negligence, the tumor was untreated and thus grew. The odds were well stacked against me, but I beat them with God’s blessing. I had a successful brain surgery at University of Southern California on August 7, 2012.

God not only decided to save my life but also overrode my entire body, as if virtually nothing ever happened to me. I have had an appendix removed, a hematoma, a separate pseudo-aneurysm, an eye stroke, temporary paralysis, intractable epilepsy (including a 23-minute seizure!), five vein-related surgeries, a shoulder surgery (because of the assault), five non-cosmetic nose surgeries (again because of the assault) and as aforementioned, a tumor removed from my brain. Because of God’s blessing, at 35 years old, I am in the best shape of my life.

To go from a dazed and confused state virtually all day long to the composer of this e-Book, the least I can say is I am humbled, honored, and happy. As long as I have His blessing, I will continue to prioritize traveling specifically for the purposes of never-ending self-growth, appreciating His creation of this planet and not the least, showing people how visiting spiritual centers can cure their ailments as well.

The Tricks Only Travel Experts Know Introduction

I offer valuable information so you can prevent a great trip from becoming a bad one. For starters, running out of money half way through the trip is no fun. Having traveled to almost 600 destinations definitely was not cheap for me…but it was feasible. Yes, the rumors are true. I figured out ways to stay at 5-star hotels for free (think overlooking the Louvre museum from your balcony). However, most people cannot pull that off and until becoming a travel expert, neither could I.

My tips go beyond how to budget and get stuff for free. Much more important to saving money is how to travel safely. In my teens, I was violently robbed in Barcelona, Spain. Although it never compromised my enthusiasm for traveling nor for my love for Barcelona (I returned and am glad I did), it taught me a thing or two about safety. This is an exercise I get better and better at each year as I continue my journey.

Nothing makes me go berserk like when locals try to scam me. The majority of such experiences I have had are in what I still believe is the most beautiful country on earth…Italy. Although there is no perfect way to avoid scammers, I have learned how to take effective precaution without making it a chore and killing the beauty of getting lost in culture.

Ultimately, it’s all about the experience: the food, outdoor adventures, architecture and not least, the people. There is nothing better in the journey than to familiarize with and immerse in culture. This is a never-ending mission and I would not want it any other way. I am here to help you choose the right places for your needs and desires and to prepare you for the journey. The Tricks Only Travel Experts Know is an interesting and entertaining e-Book that shows just how to make your fantasy trip a reality.
