My name is Ben – high school graduate turned novice nomad.
Born on the sunny Gold Coast in Australia, I moved with my parents and older brother to a tropical oasis called Lombok before I could even crawl. This island paradise in Indonesia quickly became my beloved home for the first 12 years of my life, before my family decided to pack up and move back to Australia. 5 years later I graduated high-school and packed my own bags to begin the trip of a lifetime. My biggest dream, my passion and the most exciting time of my life, I left my new home in Adelaide and began a crazy year of exploring this crazy world we’ve been blessed with.
MY TRAVEL PATH
With room for a little bit of modification, my travel path for 2016 goes something like this:
AUSTRALIA > INDONESIA > AMERICA > ICELAND > THE NETHERLANDS > GERMANY > NORWAY > SWEDEN > UNITED KINGDOM > SWITZERLAND > FRANCE > SPAIN > HUNGARY > GREECE > UNITED ARAB EMIRATES > LEBANON > JORDAN > QATAR
I may only be 17 years old, but there is a huge world out there and I am determined to explore every corner of it while I can. One of my biggest fears in life is to settle down and look back on my younger years, regretting not seeing things I could have seen, doing the things I could have done and becoming the person I could have become. So here I am! Travelling the world, taking every opportunity and regretting absoloutley nothing!
