A lot of people say that I’m like a loose cannon. There must be something about it because I quite often find myself in what-the-hell situations. Like for example this whole idea.
I’ve been dreaming about traveling the world since I can remember that I started dreaming. The best and biggest move in my life was deciding not to go to uni. Because of that I couldn’t find a job in my home country of the Czech republic which meant that as a fresh 20 year old I was already on my way to the UK. At 23, my life was planned for years ahead. I married a girl I loved more than anything, I had a great job, a place to stay, a car, money. Actually, I think I had everything what a little insignificant part of this whole system needs to have to be happy. But of course, things hardly ever work out the way you want them to so within a few weeks time, I lost it all. I went through hell, it was the hardest thing ever to pull myself back together but now, I can honestly say that it was the best thing that’s ever happened to me.
I was still missing something though, I knew I wanted more. All became clear after I visited Egypt in 2014 in places tourists are normally not allowed to. I wanted to travel. Of course I always found million excuses why I couldn’t do it, I didn’t have the balls to just leave everything behind and go.
However, one morning in late December 2014 I woke up very hungover and I couldn’t stop thinking about the dream I’d had. I was buying a one-way flight ticket to Bangkok in it and planning how I’m gonna enjoy the sun and Thai girls. Then I suddenly realised the idea of it was somehow too real. I plucked up my courage to check my emails and then I only found myself sitting there in my room with my mouth wide open saying: „What the fuck!“
A few months later, it looks like it’s going to be the most epic journey of my life. I left the UK after five amazing years, sold almost everything I owned, quit my job, put on my backpack and moved on with my life. I normally don’t know where I’m gonna wake up the next day, who I’m going to meet or what’s going to go wrong but I’ve reached ultimate freedom. I don’t wanna be a part of this messed up system, I don’t wanna be tied up to just one place, I have no set plan, I have almost no money but I know that one day, when I’m on my deathbed, I’m going to say: „Fucking hell, that was an awesome ride!“ 🙂
