My Bucket List (& About the Blog)

G’day! My name is Tim and I live to learn. 

I have always had a passion for trying to understand the world and how it functions. I believe that without pursuing what exists beyond our comfort zone, we cannot learn about ourselves. The moment you hit the road, it becomes apparent to me that there is no school, documentary or book that can teach you what you can teach yourself. And that’s why I started this blog.

The idea of this blog is to share what I am learning while travelling. Lessons about travelling, my own personal development and cultural exchange. There are a lot of travel journals and ‘top tips’ sites out there. I want to contribute something new and meaningful to the vast array of click-ready travel knowledge out there.

Learn with me as I travel. Travel with me as I learn.
