An englishman abroad

There is something really great  and magical with people who follow their dreams!

Ian is one of them. He is An Englishman Abroad, who has decided to accomplish his dreams. One of them is to travel to 100 countries and to live in at least 20 of them.

This was one of my secret dreams that I left on my way into life, and I know I will never accomplish it. In two words, I gave up. So you can imagine the feeling of Joy, Envy, pleasure I have living my dreams through his eyes. Because one of the beauties of our modern world resides on sharing through internet, Ian shares his experiences with us in this great blog: An Englishman abroad. His photos are absolutely amazing!

I am sure the visionary Jules Verne had him in mind when writing his famous novel :). He is the  Phileas Fogg of the 21st century.

I know Ian has another dream that he wants to accomplish, but I will let you discover it by yourself in his blog. Enjoy your travel without moving from your sit!!

Below are some of the pictures you can enjoy in his blog.

I had to stop because I was about to copy the integrality of his blog here, which is not the goal :)))

Thank you Ian for sharing your beautiful dream with us!

Thank you for your kind words. It's interesting to see which of my photos you have selected. That one of Machu Picchu is one of my favourites, as it reminds me of one of the most magical places in the world.

Really is amazing and stimulating see human beings that go behind their dreams, always is difficult but when you see the happiness of take the challenge of go for it, examples like this man make you find in your heart some emotions that say to you why not? I can try too. I want make real my dreams. We must understand - i need to say this many times to me-that we need to be strong in life because is the only way to get the happiness and the achieve of the goals. Great story. A hug.
