Yesterday, as I celebrated my 22nd year, I was filled with glee as my family and friends gave me well-wishes, most of them were bids of more adventures and wanderings - something I would always wish not just for myself but to all of those who are dear to me. .
Indeed, 2012, albeit a challenging one, was a wonderful year filled with wanderlust. My passion to make the world a smaller place continues to burn and I am delighted to know that my friends have seen me not just another guy who wants to travel. My being 'The Wander Dude' has brought my dreams to life, but I would like to believe that I am not just any random dude you would meet. Rather, I am the guy you personally know who wishes to share his first-hand adventures in the high hopes of inspiring you to travel as well.
So let this be my new advocacy, I am not just your then-superhero-adventurer bringing you to your next destination. I am a first-hand-story-teller believing that regardless of distance, time and budget, everyone deserves to sail with the waves and fly with the winds.
Dearest friends and adventurers, my family and I would like to wish you all a travel-full 2013!
Let your itchy feet bring you closer to your greatest dreams. All together, let us be friends with the world! :)
With much love,
The then-Wander Dude and now The Wander Dan
