All Odds stacked against me
Believe it or not, but I am not a born explorer nor world traveler. In fact, I was even more afraid of this big world than Chicken Little was.
My life story is anything but a Disney fairytale. Before I could even dream about traveling the world, I had to overcome so many struggles. The fear, the doubts and the hesitation had me immobilized. Not to mention the lack of financial funds…
Life almost knocked me down at some point. I was behind on my plans and dreams after suffering a mental breakdown. It was then that I knew I had only two choices. Either let the fear paralyze me further or embrace the struggle and use it to grow as a person.
As you can read, I chose the latter. Life on the road is amazing. Hell, most times it’s like living a dream. But it’s not as easy as you might think. It’s not like you buy two pairs of socks and start walking on pink clouds without suffering any setbacks.
Moving towards my dream of traveling the world was the smartest decision I ever made. It made me hungry, literally and figuratively. But let’s keep it real. If exploring the world was easy, everyone would do it. Sadly, there is a perfect ingenious system to keep you far away from your dreams, something that is called the rat race.
I’m not selling you any pots of gold. I’m only giving you the tools to achieve your own dreams and goals, while being honest about life on the road. And that’s why you should follow me on my journey through this blog!
So, what are you waiting for? It’s not like you’re getting any younger…
There are no more excuses from now on!

I am not a self-proclaimed travel expert, and definitely not a guru nor influencer. But I am you, the one with a desire to see the world. You, who wants to experience freedom and live the life that we dream of.
So, now you know who I am…
But what is this site about? And why? For god’s sake Jonas why the hell did you create another travel blog while there are already a few thousands out there on the internet.. To be honest, I ask those questions myself every single day.
It’s not for fame, not for money, not for followers or any of that crap.
The real honest truth is to push myself. To become a better version of myself every single day. I know this might sound cliché, but that’s the simple reason.
I was like the most average person on earth. Being mediocre as one can be. I was the kind of guy that was afraid of life. All I did was eating crappy fast food and farting around in my bed while binging TV series. All there was inside of me was emptiness & numbness. No feelings, no pain, no nothing.
My view on life was the worst. I did exactly the opposite of what one should do. That’s why I am doing what I do now.
Furthermore I want to make an impact on people’s lives.
Everyone has a gift in life. But it is your job to figure out what that gift is.
I firmly believe you can’t be what you can’t see.
So many of us are fucked up and lost because we don’t love what we do. I’m not here to say go fuck your job and leave everything behind to travel the world like I do.
I’m here to get you exposed to the things u never heard of.
