""The answer my friend....is blowin in the wind"" Sobe-A-Rush's Profile
Over the last few years a lot of things have happened in my life but i will leave all the below (non yellow txt) info so you can check out my story if you like :)
The Now and Next part below ended up happening just as planned, i ended up in Bali, Indonesia a few months. Arrived later than i planned but once i got settled i didn't leave for close to 8 months, was an amazing time and i had this rad house for 6 months of my stay there :) As you can see leaving wasn't easy but it was time to move on as the internet connection wasn't the best and an opportunity arose in Las Vegas.
I took my car down to Vegas for an unlimited amount of time which turned to almost 6 months of life in the fast lane before missing that home feeling. Met amazing people, did a bit of the luxury Vegas living and even got to spend a night in the Las Vegas Jail :) After half a year that life style got old so i decided to head to Vancouver where i knew some good people and the city really is that beautiful!
When searching for that home feeling, i got a bed, TV and a dog.......after more than two years of roaming the streets of Vancouver with my Jersey (my french bulldog) it was time to move on, i sold every little thing i picked up over the recent past.
Had my life back into two suitcases, two monitors + a dog cage this time :)
June 2012 i left Vancouver with a one way ticket to Europe, with the intention of living in Croatia we ended up in Wroclaw Poland (beautiful city!)
I spent an amazing year in Wroclaw and up to date it has been one of the most important years in my life as i transitioned from my old online business which burned me out to getting involved with a group of entrepreneurs and be able to create another source of income online.
Since middle of 2013 i took this new venture seriously, plugged into everything that has been put in front of me and am now making decent money with all of this. Reason i share this on here is because I've spent a ton of time on this site, met several amazing people and i think you will agree that most people in this community want two things; Time and Freedom to do whatever/whenever. This is exactly what i am starting to receive since plugging into all of this :)
I am so in line with the vision @ Project AWOL Love these guys for everything they have set up for us!
I only work with people who are serious about creating Another Way Of Life for them selves, please don't waste your and my time. If you are genuinely hungry for a change and are an action taker then send me a message.
I just finished 4 months on the coast of Croatia, since end of Sept 2013 i have been roaming 5 different countries. Currently hanging out with family in Poland as i write this and will be heading to beautiful New Zealand next week to spend the summer there :)
Send me a Friend Request on Facebook if you might be looking for something that i was months ago!
Poland was my first ever home and I did most of my growing up here. I was born in Otwock, a small city about 20 minutes drive from Warsaw, so I spent a lot of my early days in Warsaw aswell. Lived in Otwock untill i was 11 and then moved to Canada with my mom and sister in november of 1995. During the 11 years in Poland i spent 3 summers in Germany just being a kid as my mom worked there for the summers. I have been back to Poland 6 times since moving to Canada, my last trip back was in the summer of 2000. All of my trips to Poland were to visit my dad, most trips were about 2 months and one was 6 months long. The best part was when i got to go to see him, it was also his summer so we went on vacations, i saw a lot of Europe and Tunisia because of my trips back to Poland.
My second home...Kamloops B.C.
When first coming to Canada I hated it, left all my friends and family in Poland and i didn't know any english so it was hard to know what was going on at most times. But I went to school in the first 3 weeks and got used to it. I lived in Kamloops my whole time in Canada but visited many places in BC during that time. After graduating from high school in 2003, I bumed around for a while and didn't know what to do with my self, then the fires in BC got really bad during that summer so i was off to the best job i've ever had "Firefighting". After that summer I "worked":| in Kamloops for a year at a bunch of different places, waited until i was fired and off to my next job haha no no. Then summer 2004 came and fires got bad again, so i was off to do that for another summer. August came along, I took my TESOL course and was off to China...
3rd and so far final home........
When coming to China on the plane i had NO CLUE what to expect, what the city looked like that i was going to or anything. Just had our bags and a $100 Canadian. We found a job on the net and decided to move kind of last minute and couldn't find ANY information on the city we were moving to (Taizhou(Jiaojiang)), but we decided to take it anyways... The first city I lived in was Jiaojiang, I didn't mind it at first but then started looking around on the internet all the much better cities in China, and shortly after that I was off to Guangzhou. I spent 7 months in Guangzhou and i really enjoyed this city. Good people, good food and many good places to check out. Eventhough i said i hated Jiaojiang, it was still a wicked experience to see that kind of Chinese way of life, a lot different from many other places. In China i now have been to a few cities so you can take a look at the pages...
For the Now part; well i am currently in Canada and have been here for the last 2 and a half years. Lived in Northern Alberta just over a year for work and the rest of the time spent in BC. I haven't really taken any trips lately. Just to Vegas....meaning i have had this crazy itch to just go......Due to my new job, i can do it anywhere in the world. Soo for the up Next part:
I'm going to be in Vegas all of June and quite excited for that, Early July i leave for Eastern Europe to see my family and have a massive wedding to attend to :)
I will try and see as much of Eastern Europe as possible up till the end of August. From there i go straight to Asia and renting a place in Bali for awhile without any intentions of coming back to Canada. I don't plan to stay in Bali for good but who knows what will happen after that...

There are expensive spoons but i am not after those. I just want any spoon with a name on it. You can help with covering my wall so if you would like to send me a spoon then all you have to do is email me here on VT and i will send you my address.
Oh and i dont care one bit if the spoons are from the same location.....the spoons always look different.
