Writer and World-Traveler

Nicos HadjicostisExploring ideas and places


I am a writer and world-traveler. Here you will find essays with a philosophical bent that explore existential questions, inspire you to think differently, and occasionally strive to awaken the latent world-traveler within you.

Τhe photo and video galleries offer a glimpse of the places and people I had encountered on my 6.5-year continuous around the world journey that covered 70 countries on 6 continents. My aim was to treat the world as if it were one huge country, a single destination. Inspired by this life transforming journey, I wrote the award-winning book Destination Earth – A New Philosophy of Travel by a World-Traveler, published last year. Yet, this is not a travel blog. Rather, it is the site of a still restless me, sharing my thoughts on travel, the world, and most importantly, life in general.
