Hi, I'm Rye. I quit my old life and left Manila to explore the world, learn languages, and lead a life that honors my soul. My travels are a response to this nostalgia for intentionality and purposefulness. Through the challenges posed by travel, I learned that not money but fear of the unknown is our biggest obstacle to starting a journey and setting sail. Yes, travel requires some money, but courage and imagination reign more strongly. Being away from home sucks sometimes, but it has allowed me to experience a personal renaissance, a maneuvering of my life’s wheels. Travel may not be man’s greatest panacea, but it does show us new perspectives of beauty, of diversity, of kindness, of life, and of love. In this journey, I wish to maximize my potentials and, as I write, I hope to invade your busyness with glimpses of inspiration.
