The world is too beautiful, and life is too short.
I am a Light Chaser, and my goal is to change through travel.
Travel holds meaning because it is open-ended and allows us to find the freedom to live life on our own terms.
I have spent the last ten years chasing after ambitions that only mired me in a cycle of neglect. Busy to the point where I took no breaks, I neglected to live. I lost the sense of awe and wonder, lost the creative pursuits that fed my soul, and when my health took a plunge, I began to question why.
That seed of discontent led me to an enquiry. The enquiry is guided by the question: How might humans reclaim our own wellbeing?
I ask questions to reimagine the ways people use time, how we find the freedom to re-vision our humanity through experiences.
Through travel, I have a hunch that a person can rediscover ways of finding delight in the world.
And, I am looking for ways to find myself.
Rainer Maria Rilke wrote, “Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves like locked rooms and like books that are written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.”
Live the questions now.
The open-endedness of travel allows us to live the questions.
This site was created so that you can find delight in the world. What drives us is the simple mission
Go and Find Yourself.
How that happens, is up to you. You are the author of your life.
