Build a career around something you love and you’ll never do a day’s work. Or so the saying goes. Adventure and a life outside for many of us is the key to a happier, healthier existence, and so forging a career built on those foundations is something for many of us to aspire to. Sure, scrambling around the canopy, rigging, getting dehydrated getting stung by wasps covered in mud and leeches isn’t the dream for everyone, but for those with a penchant for physical work in exotic locations, professional tree climber Waldo Etherington has some words of wisdom.
“More than anything else that I do, it’s in climbing trees that I do get more of those moments when you stop and take a deep breath in and look around and you just kinda can’t believe where you are in this most beautiful hidden world above the forest floor,” he says.
