Happy Birthday – a Year of Blogging


A year ago, I began writing this blog. I did so out of a desire to do something creative, to reconnect to long-lost dreams I had of being “a writer”, and to try to make sense out of the turmoil in my life at the time. Plus, it gave me something to do with my free time while I travelled, on endless flights and in countless airport lounges.

I am quite proud of having more or less stuck to plan this past year – to publish a story each week, loosely based around my travels.

Along the way, I have been amazed at the result: my blog has been read from more than 100 countries; I have regular readers on every continent; I have reconnected with old friends and class mates who somehow found me through the blogosphere; and I have now been asked to contribute pieces based on my blog to several publications. Am amazing testament to the globalising power of the internet.

I am very thankful to everyone who supported and encouraged me early on in this endeavour, and to everyone who has read my blog over the past year. Writing my stories has become one of the highlights of my week; that people should actually read them is a bonus. I have no plans to stop, so I hope you enjoy the next year of this blog as much as I will continue to enjoy writing it.

  1. First thing I do every monday is read your blog. Unless of course you are traveling (again) and are a bit late. You should stop that, it mucks up my Mondays.

    • Hi Eytan,
      I love your writing and have learned so much about all the different countries you have been to. I look forward to each new post every week, so carry on writing!

  2. Eytan, stumbled across your bog whilst digitally reminiscing my life in Singapore/Apos and must say I am envious of both your travels and your writing ability. Whilst I had never imagined you as such a talented writer, I am not surprised that this is something you have a natural affinity for.

    So stoked for you to be brave enough to follow your dreams. Cant wait to read more of your adventures…
