About my blog

I am a twenty something blogger in the latter stages of book writing. I hope to build an audience that my book will appeal to, wherever you are. I greatly appreciate the likes, follows and feedback. Hello!

Travel blogger, amateur photographer, wondering wanderer.

I love to travel and I hope to visit every continent in my life. I am also constantly in my own head, trying to make sense of anything and everything. Some say that’s a bad idea.

29

I hope to give inspiration to someone somewhere. My blog is a little bit of a niche so I know I won’t appeal to the majority of the blogging world. I am not a religious person. I don’t like that we are promised reward after we die, I love to travel and live life with a little more urgency. Why not have fun today? A life without a belief system isn’t a castle built on sand and I want to prove it in my posts.

I am a curious blogger admitting ignorance and wanting to learn. I heard that the best way to become great at anything is to start believing you are wrong and learn how to put it right. Being a little skeptical opens doors that you have always been told to keep closed and this will hopefully be evident in my writing. Hopefully you will follow me on this blog, maybe even through the same doors.

Thanks for reading and make today awesome!

I too have similar views regarding religion and seeing the world and so on and so forth, which is why i am so totally stoked to have found a blogger who shares my view. will definitely be a frequent visitor.

  2. Thanks, Sam, for following me and my blog. Truly appreciated. I’d like to follow yours, as well, but cannot find a “follow” button of any kind here. Is it hidden somewhere, or am I just missing it? Thanks again Sam, and best to you!

    • No worries, and thank you so much for stopping by.

      That is strange, it should appear on the screen at the bottom right when scrolling through my page (this is the case on my laptop) and on my website it shows a follow button for me at the very bottom left. I hope this helps!

  5. Thanks for following my blog! You’re the first! It’s still in construction. i like the name of yours. after many years of reading and questioning, i sat on the fence as an agnostic. then i realized it was Fear keeping me there. i became a scared Atheist, but now i Own it! my blog is about current events, politics, inequality. stuff like that. i’m a big believer in Critical Thinking which is why i’m so mad and feel so compelled to get it out on my keyboard.

    • I love both! And doing both together keeps me inspired, it is easier to write if I have travel stories to share.

      Thank you for your kind words, sometimes it is better if we have different likes, it keeps conversation interesting!

  8. HI Sam, I was just reading your About page, the part where you say you’re not religious because you don’t want your reward after you die. Well I hope you will indulge me for a few lines since I’m a Christian, and I think you did say you’re opened to enlightenment. When you die, that’s just a temporary death in the grave….that’s if you know God. If you know and follow Him, you will live for an eternity. He is coming back again for His loved ones, and I do believe it will be soon….you could still be alive as no one know when He’s coming. I’ve only read a few of your posts so far but you seem like a nice young man, you may want to spend a little time seeking Him (God) out. Your life would be even more rewarding and fulfilling. So glad I came across your blog, and surprisingly enough I have enjoyed the posts I’ve read so far. Take care for now and stay safe on those scooters….Don’t forget to wear your helmet.

    • Thank you for stopping by my site and reading some posts, I really appreciate it. The problem for religion for me is evidence, I just find very little reason to follow the Christian God anymore than Islam, Greek mythology and the thousands of religions that have presented themselvesi the world over time.
      It isn’t that I don’t want reward after I die, that sounds fantastic if it were true! It is more that I don’t like the idea that we get it after we die, as it leads to a life of servitude without the guarantee of that pay. It sounds more like a con to me. But I have purposely changed my blog to me more welcoming for everyone of all walks of life, religious or not, and I appreciate that we can get along.

      I hope you have a great week!

      • Have a good week Sam. I’m not going to try to convince you, that is something for the Holy Spirit to do. I think where Christianity is different than all the others is that Jesus was the only one that died and rose again. You may even be able to find that out in the history books without even picking up a Bible. And in relation to the reward after death, we were never supposed to live like this, but mankind was given a choice and now it has to go through to the finish. Take care. I will be still dropping by to check out your post.

      • From viewing your photographs, it seems like their locations could be some of your destinations. Selina is all about the lifestyle of the nomads, travel to new mostly tropical destinations while working remotely/having your own online business, etc. Yes, do research them!
