I’m a solo explorer, who’s been lucky enough to see a fair bit of our planet. The freedom to roam isn’t something I take for granted; it’s the biggest privilege a human can have. You won’t find many useful travel guides here, but I hope you find travel tales that inspire you to visit new places, live like a nomad, embrace new cultures and travel solo. I’m happiest in nature, on or in the ocean, and exploring different ways of life. Being curious sometimes means I’ve pushed life to its limits, taken the biggest risks, and fallen from the greatest heights. It also means I’ve met some of the world’s best humans (fact!) and my life is full of stories and experiences, and that is the humble offerings of this travel blog…
I’m sat in a cloud, an actual big fluffy cloud. Not wandering as lonely as one, just sat in one looking over the sprawling mass of patchwork greens in front of me. The vultures are hopping from one foot to another, totally ignoring me, busy drying their huge wings after the regular afternoon downpour. Costa Rica is known for its lush green landscapes and mountainous terrain. I watch as the vultures dine on a not very tasty looking armadillo.
Awkward… I’m asking for money! Not for me, although that may come, hahaha *hysterical laughter* as it dawns on me I really have left my life, my job and all my home comforts to earn no money.
So what’s happened since my big decision… insomnia has happened. Trying to sell all my worldly belongings and cancel a life that I thought would be at least mid-term if not long-term. Not easy when you don’t speak the lingo! I explored Madrid and realised Barcelona has my heart. I landed in the right city with just a suitcase and a screenshot of a google map back in early October. I couldn’t have known how hard and wonderful this experience would be in equal measures.
