ABOUT . ME . NOTE
- a personal travel notes almost forgotten
- a recollection of past trips, on or off the saddle but definitely more fun with the wheels!
- random thoughts rediscovered in neglected photos folders & notes, accumulated over time since departure at the end of journey, waiting to be extracted out of my memories till now… or who knows when?
- ardent reader and collector of adventure travel books and motorcycle documentary, enough for some to collect dust and waiting to be unseal.
- note to self : at some point… stop reading (and watching) , pack up and
writeride your own…
Past to Present Tagline
“don’t just read , ride your own”
2016 – 2017
don’t just read . ride your own – was the tagline to myself until 4th June 2017.
embarking on the next phase of my riding & traveling journey. I will need a new slogan to inspire my stories ahead …
“every story . has a journey”
2017 – 2021
Every journey we embark on has a story waiting to be told. From the moment we pack our panniers and set off to our destination, we are creating a unique narrative filled with ups and downs, unexpected twists and turns, and meaningful moments that shape our experience. Whether we’re traveling to a new country, exploring a new city, each journey presents its own challenges and opportunities. It’s through these challenges and opportunities that we discover new things about ourselves and the world around us. From missed exits and dead ends to chance encounters with locals and breathtaking landscapes, every journey has its own tale to tell. And even when we return home, the memories of our travels stay with us, serving as a reminder of the stories we’ve lived and the adventures we’ve had.
It has been a tough years for travelers. The pandemic confined us with our own border and make us losing direction in our very own comfort zone. Perhaps this is a good time to reflect and comtemplate the road we’ve pass and the journey ahead…
I will be retiring this tagline on 14th September 2021 and advocate an old quote of mine. It just fits the right moment we are confronting right now.
“getting lost is just another discovery”
2021 – 2023
Getting lost can be a frustrating experience for many rider, but it can also be an opportunity for discovery. When we get lost, we are forced to pay closer attention to our surroundings and rely on our instincts to find our way back. This can lead to unexpected discoveries, such as stumbling upon a hidden gem of a unbeaten route or stumbling upon a scenic viewpoint that one would have otherwise missed. Getting lost can also provide a chance to learn about the local culture and meet new people, as we ask for directions or recommendations. So, while it can be unnerving to feel like we’re off track, getting lost can actually open us up to new experiences and adventures.
We are at the endemic, however lost and how we discover ourself during the past 2 years. It is now the time to explore…
“EXPLORE NEW HORIZONS, FIND YOURSELF”
2023 – Present
Travel can be a transformative experience that allows us to discover new perspectives, cultures, and ways of life, while also helping us to gain the opportunity to find ourselves,. By exploring new horizons, we are able to break out of our comfort zones and experience things that are different from our day-to-day lives. This can lead to personal growth, as immerse ourselves in new experiences, we are able to reflect on our values, beliefs, and goals, and gain a deeper sense of self-awareness. This can lead to a greater sense of purpose and direction.
This is a call to embrace change, take risks, and seek out new experiences in all aspects of our lives. By doing so, we can unlock our full potential, gain a greater sense of purpose and direction, and live a more fulfilling lives.
