SPN /// HOW TO BE INVISIBLE

In the eyes of a traveler you shall see, the world as it actually is and could be.
Fear is a cognitive weapon of defense. Learn how to wield it and you’ll be better than fearless, you’ll be its master.
A life nomadic is a life romantic.
The world is full of the beautiful, enchanting, exotic, intriguing and provocative. I am of course talking about the opposite sex.
Survival in any form is an act of prevention or recovery.
Urban camouflage isn’t about blending into the physical city around you but to appear as if you’re from and belong there like a local.
Regret is a form of motivation and inspiration, take advantage of it.
Think about that saying; “If someone wrote a book about your life, would they find it interesting?”. Now forget that and consider; “If you read that book about your life, would you be satisfied?”.
Beauty is everywhere, that’s why I travel everywhere.
To experience the full potential of explorative travel, one must understand a culture, therefore the people.
If serenity is not a permanent destination but a fleeting moment of direction, then traveling the world is a way to experience it… repeatedly.
You’re going to die anyways, so just do it.
True love or mere lust can be captured anywhere but there’s nothing quite like it while in eternal motion of wanderlust.
One does not need a home full of things to live. Just like ancient times, all we need is what we can carry on our backs.
We travel the world to see the beautiful and taste the exotic but it’s the people we meet along the way that makes it remarkable.
I’m a homeless man with homes all around the world.
Culture shock is an adrenaline rush that should be treated like an action sport.
Food is more than sustenance. It’s a form of art, a part of culture, a way to pleasure and it brings people together – amplified by vagabonding.
Restaurants shouldn’t be pretentious or ambitious, they should only be conscientious for the delicious.
We get street smarts from nature, book smarts from nurture and only by traveling the world can we gain universal smarts.
A lifestyle of world travel may seem extravagant and luxurious, but it has taught me to appreciate and favor the contrary.
Go on journeys, not vacations.
Take any wild animal out of their natural habitat and put them in a slightly different one and it will cause confusion, defensiveness, tension and often fear. It’s no different with us humans when displaced in a different culture, country or merely when separated by an arbitrarily far distance from “home”. Escalated dramatically by a SHTF scenario.
It’s arguable that being street smart is better than book smart on a general level, but as a foreigner abroad, the former is.
I’m a patriot and I love my country like family, but I like hanging out with my friends more, therefore I travel the world.
I deny I’m a spy as the truth can lie.

    Very beautiful quotes John, very inspirational. Especially “Regret is a form of motivation and inspiration, take advantage of it.” That one I’m going to steal :)
