More and more men are escaping the west to follow their bliss! This is the first of three teasers for an upcoming Jamaican in China exclusive: an interview with rat race escapee, former Bronx NYC resident, Ken Marks, aka The Exotic Foreigner!
Travel Rhymes for the Nomad’s Soul!
EVERYONE IS ME
Around the world are many me
each waiting to exist
And each new land–I’m born anew–
gets added to my list
A thousand lives, a thousand “I”s
a chance to be and be
A single life’s not life enough
for everyone is me!
What ultimately got me off Saipan and traveling again since a year before the pandemic is that I offered to help a friend shop for and furnish his empty condo in Manila. As part of the arrangement, I stayed in the apartment, so I got to travel around and shop for my own minimalist, nomad essentials and live like a local for about a week. I’ll share what I bought in another video!
A friend in need,
and tuktuk rides galore!
I live the free
while sleeping on the floor!
NOMAD IN MY GENES
I’m on a quest for many “me”s
with nomad in my genes
First Saipan, Guam, I’m on the move
next stop: (it rhymes with “genes!”)
Watch the video to hear me tell you the answer!
My full “Many Me,” minimalist, vegan, nomad, cheapskate adventure from Saipan to Guam to Macau to Cambodia is now being released as “A Journey of a Thousand Shorts” (60sec each with unseen video, photos & commentary) on the Jamaican in China Youtube channel. Each episode features a unique Walt’s Travel Life Rhyme, starting with #1: “Follow Bliss!” (Watch until the end to hear me perform it!)
#1 – Follow Bliss
I’m off to see the world
with just a suitcase and a smile
And crossing many borders
may not see you for a while
But if and when you think of me
my friend, remember this:
Don’t follow crowds, don’t follow fads
Look inward. Follow bliss!
Window seat. Always. For elevated perspective, high-minded contemplation and blue-sky brainstorming above the clouds.
A new adventure is in flight and on the way! However, to experience it, you’ll need to subscribe to the new and improved Jamaican in China & Beyond Youtube Channel!
