the movement, migration, or scattering of a people away from an established or ancestral homeland
When I began traveling in 2015, I had no expectation of the unfolding of people, places and discovery that took me from traveling as an escape to traveling with deliberate intention.
The greatest lessons have not come from the places I’ve visited but other travelers along the way. Most of those people, like me, have been wanderers, each in their own diaspora. Their uniqueness of character and insight was born from the conflict inherent to the diaspora, a compulsion to wander mixed with a bitter-sweet longing for being settled.
One of my goals for this site is a home to share what I’ve learnt from traveling, from affordable places to stay to eating and drinking like a local. If you’re an aspiring minimalist you might be interested in how my quest to lighten my load is evolving.
Most of all, this site is about the unstoppable impulse to share appreciation for the journey I’m on. I don’t quite know where it’s going, but I intend to have fun finding out.
If you’d like to be featured or have a story to share please drop me a line.
