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 book, Destination Earth – A New Philosophy of Travel by a World-Traveler (now in its 2nd edition!), which won three book awards and was recently included in the top “18 Travel Books to Inspire Your Next Vacation or Feed Your Wanderlust” published by Business Insider.

This website however, 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.
