I’m Ben, a guy from Australia with a passion for travel and adventures of all kinds. In 2018 I decided to trade my day-to-day existence for the journey of a lifetime.
I’ve always been a restless soul, with a vivid imagination and a near-unquenchable thirst for new experiences.
I remember thinking from an early age that there simply had to be more to life than the traditional 9-5 of generations prior.
I’ve always been a storyteller, and the gift of a hand-me-down Nikon D70 happened to coincide with the realisation that I had a passion for writing. A handful of overseas trips later and my obsession for a life of travel was clear.
I wanted to share my passion for adventure and travel with the world. So, in 2018 after a month in Bali on a travel writing internship, I decided to make my dream a reality.
12 months later, I was headed back to Bali, but this time with no return ticket. My backpack, camera gear, laptop, notebook, and the allure of new experiences was all I needed.
