What is your hobby?
Well, part of my life has been more about interacting with humans and getting to learn more from nature, so in this process, I created a deep connection with traveling to see new destinations. I find exploration interesting and when am not traveling I’m writing about my excursions so other travelers can feel like they had the experience with me.
How did you get started with this hobby? What inspired you?
What basically triggered me to get into traveling is the desire to see the world beyond where I live. I believe there are many treasures that I am yet to come across and staying at the same place doesn’t give me the chance to explore the world well. It is an interesting pursuit that has helped me to understand different cultures and communities. Plus, when I get to see the pools that other places offer, it gives me fresh insight to keep my skills sharp for my swimming pool design consultancy business.
Tell us what you love about it
One thing I honestly love about traveling is the fact you are ushered into a new reality and this gives you an opportunity to appreciate the beauty that makes up our world. From the people to the landscapes, it comes as a great opportunity to uncoil and see the world in a different lens than you are used.
Are there any groups you’re a part of or events that you attend related to your hobby?
Indeed, I have come across various travel clubs that share similar ideas as me, and the theme dominant is ensuring we get to embrace nature with a positive mind. For example, one of such groups has been championing travel and exploration while spreading awareness on the need to preserve the environment. Plus, I’m also thinking of starting a travel group exclusively for swimming pool design consultants, so we can compare notes, and shed some more light on this not often covered industry.
Have you had to invest in equipment and if so, please share some of the things you’ve bought
Yes, I have equipment that I use whenever I visit a new place, and these include my cameras and tabs that I use to document the facts I come across while traveling. This data is what is relayed to the audience through my articles while reviewing travel destinations.
Where do you buy most of your supplies?
With the online space expanding and offering many places to shop, I search the internet to see what items I need. Once I find the ones that I need, I just place my order and the same is delivered to me. One of my favorite places to shop is Amazon, they just have a great assortment of items available.
Are there any good books for beginners?
For beginners who want to pursue travel journalism, I would recommend reading Jack Kerouac’s On The Road, which highlights all the things you need to understand when you enter into travel journalism.
How has this changed your life?
This has changed my life a lot. I must acknowledge that it came as a great way through which I can channel my feelings and ideas. While traveling, you are given a chance to learn that what you know is not the absolute truth and that there are many others who practice cultures that are different from what you know.
What advice do you have for others starting out with this hobby?
Don’t be discouraged by the challenges you come across while at it. This is a hobby that involves a lot of exploration and you are not likely to get all you expect, so it’s advisable to join with a prepared mind to face any challenges.
Are there any other hobbies you have?
As pointed earlier, I love swimming, particularly on the beach. And I also find reading interesting and quenching to my mind.
