  • 3 Lessons learned from travel and reverse culture shock.

  2. To have an open perspective on life.
  3. Believe in what you do and follow that relentlessly.
  • Advise to himself for returning home - Its ok to ask for help.
I dont really believe in a plan B. I believe in relentlessly pursuing what youโ€™re passionate about and there will always be detours but allow yourself to experience those detours.

If I know so little about the world, how can I make these crazy life decisions, so I set out to learn more and travel quickly became my life.
