Hi, I’m Adrian and I am a Traveler!
I’ve traveled around of the world a lot. I’ve been blessed with two legs and a good passport. Even if I had a ‘bad’ passport, I would never let that stop me from traveling.
Travel broadens the mind. It increases your perspective so much. Not many of my friends traveled much as I do. I had my first overseas trip at the age of 24.
I stayed with some distant relatives places and in hotels. It was good. Not as good as I thought it would be though. Later I found this network called Couchsurfing.org then it all changed.
I started having backpackers stay at my house. I would meet them every Wednesday night at a regular meeting place. This backpacking and Couchsurfing is so much fun. You get to meet so many cool, friendly, amazing, trustworthy, open people. It’s really inspiring.
Soon after I had enough money saved. I actually invested my money after the 2008 Global Crisis started, so when the Market was recovering, I had enough money to travel long term. I have now entered a total of over 70 countries, 4-5 years travel outside Australia and learned the basics of few languages. I’ve met thousands of amazing people around the world. It’s astonishing to me, the way that by simply being open, warm and welcoming to people, that they return the same qualities and can become memorable friends. 🙂
