in front of it. I drove from Frankfurt, Germany to Tangiers, Morocco in
a VW bug. I fell off a wall and dropped 8 feet face-first into a pile
of gravel in Spain, and then off a catamaran yacht into the harbor in
Gibraltar. I swam in the warm turquoise waters of the Mediterranean and
the Caribbean. I climbed over the ruins of an ancient theatre in Athens,

a special pass to see films at the Cannes Film Festival, but when I finally
got there I didnt want to see any films.

I rode an old school bus to Lake Titicaca in Machu Picchu, but it broke down before I got there and I had to turn back.

I was an extra on a TV show, but when I saw it they had dubbed some other actors voice and paid him the money for saying my line.

I spoke 18 words as an actor in Police Academy 2, the biggest grossing film of the summer for one week.
