“Once the travel bug bites there is no known antidote, and I know that I shall be happily infected until the end of my life” – Michael Palin
I was bitten by the travelbug when I got heartbroken in 2013 which led me to take my first solo flight. I went to a desert island, Sambawan, to clear up my minds and escape from the pain of rejection. It was a one whole week of adventure; exploring unspoiled beaches and chasing Waterfalls. Yes, it helped me for awhile but it didnt completely let the pain go away. When i came back, I am still the same broken-hearted person. Though one thing is for sure, that pain brought me to places I’d never thought I would ever be at. It’s true, when people get hurt, it changes them.
So the the person who broke my heart, thank you. Really. If it weren’t for you, i would not be able to see and experience God’s beautiful creation, and meet incredible peole.
Through travel, I’ve learnt plenty of life skills whilst on the road. I’ve learnt that I’m a lot more capable than I thought. I’ve navigated countries where I don’t speak the local language, dealt with creepy people responsibly, and learnt a lot more than any classroom could ever teach me. I am a passionate traveler and with God’s grace in just a span of 2 years, I have already travelled 14 countries covering 16 major cities and still counting.
Why do I blog?
I am relatively new to this platform, I am a man who enjoys the open road and wants to encourage others to take the leap of faith; explore and travel the world with an open heart. It offers you the chance to make a ‘journey of a lifetime’. My writing is often a collection of my rando thoughts, adventures and misadventures around the world.
My favorite thing is to go somewhere I’ve never been – Diane Arbus
My goal is to travel as much as much as I can while I am still vibrant and healthy. I still have a lot of roadways to walk on, mountains to conquer, and lessons to learn. Life is an adventure; I want to experience it to the fullest.
Honor God, Travel the World.
