Once Upon A Time There Was A Lucky Guy Who Traveled The World.
Haha, if only…
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 paralyse 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!
This Is Me
I’m Jonas Van Wezemael. Just as simple as that. And as you already figured out, being as smart as you are, I’m the adventurous spirit behind Digitraveler.
If I can achieve my dreams with such an average name, than so can you! It’s not like that my name opens many doors or gives me any privileges. So that’s already one excuse you cannot use any longer 😉
But, that all changed after suffering a mental breakdown and finding myself on the wrong side of rock bottom. If you’re interested in my entire story, feel free to read all about it. You might recognize yourself in the same situation that I was.
My name is Jonas Van Wezemael. I’m the adventurous person behind Digitraveler.
About 25 years ago, I was born in the concrete jungle known as Belgium. You may think that I was a born explorer. The truth is, aside from 6 weeks in Spain I spent every second of the first 23 years of my life in my home country.
I’m Jonas Van Wezemael, and I’m currently 28 years young. If I can achieve my dreams with such a regular name, than so can you! It’s not that my name opens many doors or gives me a lot of privileges. My personality has been evolved obliviously throughout the years. Life-experience made me the person I’m today. And while I’m extremely bad in introduction myself, i’ll give it my best shot. Well, here I go..
- I am an easy-going guy. I almost adapt better to an environment than a chameleon.
- I like to take some risks once in a while.
- Very spontaneous, I go with the flow and see where the wind blows me.
- More stubborn than a donkey. When I have something on my mind it can be hard to change those thoughts.
- While I’m acting most of time maturely, I guess I’m carrying a part of the Peter Pan syndrome. As I don’t want to grow old, ever!
- I enjoy the little things in life.
