About 'Outside the Shire'

'Outside the Shire' is a reference to The Lord of the Rings, a story about small creatures that leave their cozy homeland towards adventures and challenges. It is also a metaphor of leaving the comfort zone and this is what we do while we travel. So this is why 'Outside the Shire'.

I started traveling in 2009 and have spent about 49 months (to 2017) traveling in Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Malaysia, Cambodia, Indonesia, Nepal, India, China, Turkey, Georgia, Ukraine, Russia, Serbia, Montenegro, Macedonia.
