Travel is the greatest healer, the greatest renewer and the greatest way to expand your mind
April 14, 2018
During my life time I have travelled the world, Europe, USA, Brazil, Africa, India and many more of this planet’s most wonderful places. I have seen many wonderful sights, smells and met some incredible characters. I have travelled with friends and I have travelled alone.
You may wonder why I have chosen to travel alone over the years, for me the answer is simple. I follow my own path and visit the places I want to see. I find my own ‘me time’, through spirituality and kingship in other travellers. I travel alone in order to be together with new people I meet along the way. I talk to strangers in a beach front bar and then meet them as friends in the evening for a meal. I meet a world traveller at a market and travel on with him as a new friend to my next destination. For me, meeting new people along the road is the most important part of my travels.
I have not only travelled as an explorer, I have also worked overseas in The Gambia, Africa as a teacher; an equally rewarding endeavour. I recommend to anyone the joy of volunteering abroad, especially with children; it changes your life forever.
I have ridden horses across Brazil, taken a boat along the Rhine to see chocolate box villages and I have gripped on for dear life to the hand rail of a tuk tuk through the chaotic streets of Goa; travel my friends, see the world, expand your horizons.
I know the world can seem a dark place but you will see for yourself, it can also be a beautiful place: travel my friends and wake up to life!
“A nomad carries only what is necessary, hoping to procure the rest along the way. A nomadic contemporary traveller replaces horses and camels with trains and buses, a cart with his own back; travelling light therefore becomes an obligation.”
