2 Years of Travel in 200 Seconds + (Keep the 29th October, 10pm SGT open)

Today, it will be almost 2 months since I’ve surprised my family at the airport when I landed at Changi International Airport after 2 years of being on the road. (Yes we are the kind of family that goes to the airport for dinners..)

It’s been difficult, to say the least, to concisely put into words what the last 2 years of travel have done for me.

So I’ve put together 40+ countries and 200+ cities worth of highlights in one Epic Travel Video just for you (okay, and a little for the future grand kids as well) narrating the last 24 months of my travels in ~200 seconds.

It took a lot of coffee, EDM music and many power naps.

BUT ITS FINALLY HERE

While I’m riding the wave of taking on notoriously difficult tasks (traveling full time, starting an online business, becoming a travel writer, travel video making to name a few) and challenging myself for the benefit of you guys.

Let’s add another level of difficulty to the pile while we’re at it, shall we?

What?!?/? 

Yup, that’s happening. Spread the word.

Are these information sessions for me? Well, if you are any of these people, you should definitely come hang out!

↠ You’re thinking of quitting your job to travel

↠ You want to travel more but you don’t know where to start

↠ You want to travel solo but you’re scared

↠ You are preparing to embark on your first solo trip and don’t know what to expect

↠ You want to know what you should pack to travel better

↠ You are curious how I use KTW to help me stay on the road

Or maybe,

↠ You want to start an online business/travel blog and make some money while travelling (or not) but you need some help

OR!

↠ You just want to see me talk on live video and hang out with me

SWEET.

If you know of someone who will benefit from this training session, feel free to share this with them and I’ll see YOU on the 29th!

5 Favourite Things In My Backpack

favourite travel items

If you’ve met me in real life and seen the 65l backpack on my 1.6m frame, complete with a smaller day pack carried on the front – I will look a little ridiculous.

Depending on where you’ve met me, my bigger backpack can range anywhere between 11kg and 20kg. There are probably a good number of useless things that I carry around (like the broken Gopro! :/) or ‘WILL NEED ONE DAY’.

21 Things I’ve Lost To Long Term Travel

long term travel

If you’ve come here to laugh at my travel misfortune or need a timely reminder to be less careless – you’ve come to the right place. Prancing from one city to the next every 3-4 days also means having to pack up every earthly article I have decided to bring with me on this adventure.

Turning 28 & 28 Things I Learnt While Travelling Africa

Traveling Africa was never on my travel bucket list setting off on my year long trip around the world. But I guess now that the year has long past and I am still on the road, it’s time to update that bucket list.

In a twist of fate, impulsive habits and a heart full of curiosity, I cut my trip to New York City to 4 whirlwind days and booked myself a flight to Africa.
