For the past 4-years, I have been living as a “Digital Nomad”. Earning a living on the internet, and living in new and different countries every few months. Despite the temporary nature of this lifestyle, I focus on slow, meaningful travel.
I choose the country or city that I want to live in based on a personal project or bucket list item that I plan to accomplish. I feel that the experience of a new city, meeting new people, and experiencing new cultures continually force me to learn, grow and see the world differently.
My aim is to capture and share these experiences, as a way to inspire The Freedom Fighter community to take action and find the magic that exists in all of our lives.
On Tuesday afternoon around 5:30 I caught a three hour train from Delhi to Chardigrah. I met a guy named "Meet" (which is funny because I "met" him) and he took me to his farm to picked up my rental - 500cc Royal Enfield Classic. He's a great operator and they have...read more
One of the things about travelling long term is the constant change in routine. I remember when I was living back in South Africa and moving from one suburb to another. It felt traumatic. I had to shop at another grocery store and had to drive an new way to work. Big...read more
There is story about a man that had found his calling. Doing work he was truly passionate about. He was doing work he found inspiring and made a difference in the world. Late one night he couldn't sleep and sat in the lobby of his hotel working on his laptop. A couple...read more

It's been ten days since the 7.9 magnitude earthquake shook Nepal. Experiencing an event like this, makes you rethink things in your life, and put things into perspective. While I realise this is a selfish outlook, the opportunity I've been given to lend a hand in...read more
The past few days volunteering in Nepal have been amazing. I have met some amazing volunteers doing amazing work. I've also met the most beautiful people that are so positive even in such adversity, and through the small amount I've helped, I feel blessed that I've...read more
Every once in a while something happens that makes you think: "Fuck me that was close!" - I had one of my biggest "fuck me that was close"s on Saturday this week. Around midday myself and three friends were leaving a restaurant on our way to a music festival for the...read more

I'm sitting at the airport in Kathmandu waiting to board a flight to Lukla to start a trek. Bad weather over the past few days has delayed many flights, so I have some time to catch up on some writing. Below is a post about the trail run I did just over a week ago. It...read more
Happy Tuesday. I'm sitting in a very cool cafe in Kathmandu. Had a great breakfast and decent coffee. My legs are starting to recover from a trail this weekend, and I'm catching up on some writing. A post about the trail run will follow shortly. One of the things I've...read more
There's an analogy my Dad once gave me. He said that life was like a roll of toilet paper, in the beginning it seems like it's going to last forever, and as you start to use the paper it feels like the roll is never going to end. As you reach the middle you realise...read more
Yesterday morning I woke up at 6am. Read my book for half an hour and then headed out for a run. We ran along a railway line, next to a river, over a waterfall, through tea plantations and a forest and to the top of a mountain. We sat for 10 minutes and admired the...read more
