About Me

Hi. This is Some foreign guy, AKA Mike, some guy from New Zealand.

I originally started this blog a couple of years ago while living in Italy to write the odd story about my weekends away in Europe, after which I spent a couple of years in Australia in the corporate rat race-trying to convince myself that the nine-to-five office life was more fun than travelling. I failed in this regard.

In September 2012 I swore to myself I’d find a to become self employed online so that I could travel endlessly on my own terms. As of July 2013, this had been my reality.

This re-launched blog is about my travels, adventures, ideas and how I make this life possible. I’m also a bit of a drinker and aficionado of poor decisions. Preferably I like to avoid the beaten track. Altogether I think it makes said life more interesting.
