My names Nick Paton,
I’m now officially retired at age 23.
Well, I’m not retired but I’ve decided to do things a little differently. I’ve decided to pursue my dreams while I’m in my prime and on this journey I hope it will shed light on opportunities that not only support my lifestyle but bring me contentedness everyday.
It seems I’ve long had an infatuation with exploring and all things new. I struggle to stay settled in one environment for too long but I never really had an appropriate outlet for it until I discovered travel.
After spending some time in New Zealand, Austria and Switzerland throughout 2009 I was given my first glimpse into travel and set about following these trips up with a more serious adventure the following year which took me from the ski fields in Canada, down the West Coast of the USA, across Central America, to the rain forests of Colombia.
I enjoy the chaos of changing environments and cultures and I’m fully prepared to immerse myself in them. For me, travel has become another tool on the path of personal growth and development.
You can check out My Bucket List but most of what I’m pursuing isn’t tangible in the sense that I can write it down. The riches I’m chasing down come in the form of experiences, friendships and memories.
Let yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really love. It will not lead you astray. – Rumi
