I travel the world on a quest to live a life not ordinary.
To go around the world is my biggest dream and I was able to realized that in 2011. This epic trip took me to 25 countries across 5 continents in 425 days! Needless to say, the wanderlust did not wane one bit for I continue to go on trips, albeit shorter ones.
Today, I’ve been to 60 countries & territories on 6 continents. I target to visit countries I’ve never been to; dive new dream destinations; and try out new adventures meant to thrill the senses.
In the world that I wander in, one lives a fulfilling life when one follows a set path. That is to excel as a student, secure a high-salaried job, find a nice boy, marry, have a million of babies, and live happily ever after.
For we were programmed (brainwashed?) with this since childhood, it was naturally the “ever-after” I was shooting for, albeit blindly. But as is life, it has its own agenda. Luckily, somewhere along the way I woke up. While my limbs were never tied, my mind was bound with perpetual guilt and ocean of inhibitions. I understand it was my parents’ way of being protective. But the moment the spell was broken, I began to see with a pair of new goggles, and I gasped for breath.
I discovered that the world is vast, and life has infinite possibilities! I became different from the people around me. I’ve awaken latent passions and developed new verve for living. I wish I were exposed to this earlier. But I am who I am because of who I was. I’ve always been a fast learner so I will catch up! This is my quest to live an extraordinary life.
It is not death that a man should fear. But he should fear never beginning to live.
