Welcome! I appreciate you stopping by. My name is Mario. I am an Indonesian based in Singapore with a passion for travel. I suppose I am just someone trying to discover the world and trying to discover myself in the process as well.
It is my aspiration to explore the world, one destination at a time and form memories that will make my life worth living. I remember my first trip back in 2015 when I traveled to Greece and Istanbul. It was my first solo travel and I had the greatest time of my life! I caught the travel bug from then on and I have been traveling on-and-off ever since.
Personally, I travel to escape the chaos of my life: The expectations, routines, and demands placed upon me that make me feel like I am constantly jammed into that box. I travel because I want to live and to create the kind of self that I will be happy to live with all my life. I travel to tell myself that I do not have to fit in a box. I believe in freedom, adventure, connection, and discovery – it makes our lives richer and more meaningful don’t you think?
Here’s the truth – Life is short and there never will be a perfect time for you to live your dreams. You do not want to be in your dying bed and look back saying “I should’ve done that..”
My motto is simple:
“We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us”.
