"In the pre-Covid-19 era, being a digital globetrotter and getting to every country on earth seemed to be all the go, so Ian is certainly on to a trend" - Tony Wheeler, co-founder of Lonely Planet
The Christopher Columbus of the 2000s. - A true and breathtaking story of dedication, perseverance, and innovation in entrepreneurship and alternative living. A testimony of how to push the limits of human curiosity to new boundaries.
What could you possibly learn from over twenty years spent circling around the globe, seventeen of them non-stop as a self-made digital entrepreneur? How much could your life change from exploring every single country of the world, a total of 230 countries including every single one of the 195 recognized by the United Nations? This is the account of an incredible journey with twists, turns, and perpetual adventures! Seventeen years living and working from a carry-on backpack, having only the bare essentials to live comfortably, along with a home office to fund travels through the wonder of passive income. The story of how a man destined to a promising engineering career became troubled by the prospect of living the rat race through a nine to five routine, triggering his nomadic instincts to choose a life where he dedicated every single day of his existence to living, breathing and experiencing freedom, adventure and wonder.
An inspiring testimony of alternative ways to live life outside the beaten track that we've always known. A reflection on the level of freedom one can enjoy when granting himself the right to do so. A thirst for knowledge guided by a desire to encounter fellow citizens of the world, from tribesmen to royalty, from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe, by means of land, sea and air. A journey motivated by only one desire; discover the unknown and to live every single day as if it was the last.
Giving up the security and comfort of western civilization is not the most intuitive thing to do. This is the story of a lifetime wanderlust dreamer who decides to throw away his freshly earned engineering diploma to risk an extraordinary path through life. The concept of online entrepreneurship was still unknown at the time, when this dreamer decided to pioneer a new lifestyle and go "all in" with a digital nomad set-up to fund his love of traveling. A journey that would slowly but surely guide him to and through every country of the world.
A long voyage that invariably brought a catalog of juicy unexpected anecdotes. His habit to always test the territory and socialize in the most diverse situations brought him to infiltrate tribes in Africa, the Middle East and the Pacific Islands, join the ranks of surf communities on the most remote seas, and even share meals with Mongolian Nomads as well as Afghan ministers. His unorthodox style of traveling brought him to navigate the seven seas from cargo ships to yachts, crossing international borders through Jungles on motorbikes, and even boarding intercontinental trains through tens of thousands of kilometers, many times bringing him face to face with the reality of the world such as the horrors of war in Syria, Yemen, and Iraq, while escaping the hands of terrorism on several occasions.
This is the story of a restless adventurer with a zest for life.
