Ready to take on the open road? Take a cue—or two—from biker Jaime Dempsey, star of History Asia’s Ride N’ Seek, as she shares the best advice to making the most out of any adventure!
Do your research.
“You need a general idea of where you’re going and be aware of your surroundings,” says Jaime. “Try to reach out to the people in the area. Social media is great for that! I just ask people where I should go or what I should eat. People are always proud of where they stay and they’ll give recommendations.”
Do stick to essentials.
It’s hard to move from one location to another if your bag is too heavy, so be sure to pack light. “I also try to stay in shape since it can be pretty taxing being on the bike for long stretches at a time,” says Jaime.
Do stay alert.
Whether you’re weaving through crazy traffic or are heading up a mountain trail, be mindful of your surroundings. As a biker, Jaime has had quite a few close calls, but she’s made sure to find her balance and keep moving along.
Don’t forget your safety gear.
Jaime shares, “I never ride without my helmet on.” Neither should you! The same goes for tools you’ll need for other activities, like climbing gear and non-slip hiking shoes.
Do live in the moment.
Sometimes, you just have to wing it and dive into an adventure, even if it’s unplanned. “I won’t buy a travel book and I don’t believe that’s the best way to go about it,” Jaime says.“I like to go in there with an open mind. I like to experience things as they come.”
Get the chance to meet Jaime and hear more of her thrilling adventures and travel tips as she joins the rest of HISTORY’s stars for a super weekend at History Con 2018 – the country’s biggest entertainment convention happening from August 10 – 12 at the World Trade Center, Pasay City.
