Fear is a cognitive weapon of defense. Learn how to wield it and you’ll be better than fearless, you’ll be its master.
[/quote]

[quote text_size=”small”]
A life nomadic is a life romantic.
[/quote]

[quote text_size=”small”]
The world is full of the beautiful, enchanting, exotic, intriguing and provocative. I am of course talking about the opposite sex.
[/quote]

[quote text_size=”small”]
Survival in any form is an act of prevention or recovery.
[/quote]

[quote text_size=”small”]
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.
[/quote]

[quote text_size=”small”]
Regret is a form of motivation and inspiration, take advantage of it.
[/quote]

[quote text_size=”small”]
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?”.
[/quote]

[quote text_size=”small”]
Beauty is everywhere, that’s why I travel everywhere.
[/quote]

[quote text_size=”small”]
To experience the full potential of explorative travel, one must understand a culture, therefore the people.

[quote text_size=”small”]
If serenity is not a permanent destination but a fleeting moment of direction, then traveling the world is a way to experience it… repeatedly.
[/quote]

[quote text_size=”small”]
You’re going to die anyways, so just do it.

[quote text_size=”small”]
True love or mere lust can be captured anywhere but there’s nothing quite like it while in eternal motion of wanderlust.
[/quote]

[quote text_size=”small”]
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.

[quote text_size=”small”]
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.

[quote text_size=”small”]
Culture shock is an adrenaline rush that should be treated like an action sport.

[quote text_size=”small”]
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.
[/quote]

[quote text_size=”small”]
Restaurants shouldn’t be pretentious or ambitious, they should only be conscientious for the delicious.

[quote text_size=”small”]
A lifestyle of world travel may seem extravagant and luxurious, but it has taught me to appreciate and favor the contrary.
[/quote]

[quote text_size=”small”]
Go on journeys, not vacations.
[/quote]

[quote text_size=”small”]
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.
[/quote]

[quote text_size=”small”]
It’s arguable that being street smart is better than book smart on a general level, but as a foreigner abroad, the former is.
[/quote]

[quote text_size=”small”]
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.

[quote text_size=”small”]
I deny I’m a spy as the truth can lie.
