Beautiful, Bewildering Belfast

I would not call myself a business traveler, nor would I claim to live abroad; implying distance from some hypothetical home base.  Instead, my home, my work, and my life belong to a kind of transient village.  As an acrobat with one of Cirque du Soleil’s touring productions, I have performed for audiences in thirty cities across the globe.  It has meant adapting to different cultures and climates, foods, fashions, languages, and different rhythms of life.

I have a fairly haphazard approach to traveling: I like to drop myself in the middle of some locale with no plan as to what I'm going to do – and occasionally no viable way of getting out – just to see what happens. I tell myself that this is a good way to test my mettle. If I can make it out of some of these scrapes alive, the argument goes, then I must be a tough one indeed. The truth is, I’m probably just a bit lazy and can’t be bothered with stuff like arranging accommodations before I arrive in a place, or finding transport more than a day or two in advance.
