โ€œIn December of 2019, I went on an adventure to Central America, because I wanted to and because I could.
I have no job to return to in the United States.
I have no family waiting for me or caring about me back home.
My experience of the United States is one of broken hearts and shattered dreams.

I spent three weeks visiting El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Costa Rica.
I met amazing people and tremendously sincere punk rockers and humans in every country I visited.

This video is me being in awe of my reality. I’m the living proof that it is entirely possible to survive the impossible.

While it might sound completely absurd to some people, that a guy like me, who lost just about everything he thought mattered in the world, decided to go Tegucigalpa, Honduras to help heal himself and hopefully have a helpful impact on the lives others; and whether it sounds absurd or not, that’s exactly what I did; and that is how this video blog came into existence.

If you’re not living your dreams, now is as good a time as any; to start.โ€ โ€“ Craig Lewis

Currently, Craig has just celebrated his one year anniversary of living in Mexico, where he arrived with nothing but a backpack and the clothes on his body, and without speaking the language. Craig has published two books (one of which is currently available in 10 languages) and in the next few months he will be publishing three new books including a coping skills workbook based on what he has learned during the past 5 years, titled, โ€œThe Craig Lewis Guide to Surviving the Impossibleโ€. Craig lives his life with Viktor Frankl and other brilliant spirits whispering in his ear, and this has resulted in his happiness.
