Voyage Of Light | Exploring The Unknown

Update posted by Kiran Kreer On Oct 02, 2018

Just two days ago I was in a capital city, Kuala Lumpur, with concrete buildings, construction work and rush hours. From a city where I grew up, nine thousand kilometres away and four flights later, I find myself in the urban sailing town. Nested in the southwest coast of Finland, 160km from Helsinki, my new home Turku.

It's been two days now, and I finally feel like I'm here. My soul has arrived in Europe, with a beautiful family of friends, welcoming me with an apple tree in our backyard, Irina making morning coffee and feeling the cold autumn winds. Yes it's cold here, winds from the coastal city but I will get use to it. Also I realised, I may have forgotten to bring a jacket along, but Seila and I will be heading to a thrift store to get a used one. She says it will cost about 10 euros.

Day one in Finland, I woke up in this strange town, went out to feel the warm sun, dark blue skies, with this new inner feeling of life, a magical nature around me, so green and so blissful. An apple tree as my shade, it was a strange experience just eating apples of this tree. But it made me feel like I'm finally made it into a home I always dreamt about.

My journey across Europe has begun. Soon I’ll be sharing more stories and tales of those I meet.

Helen Krens - Normal people? I’m glad, I am not normal then. :) This is my job too. As a full time traveller, a nomad, a photographer, speaker and writer, this is my work, my life. I do this for a living, documenting real lives, social projects and photography is my life’s work. I work 8 -10 hours a day updating my websites, writing, editing images and social media. I share my photographic stories, writings and content for free. I do not charge others for my work as a documentary photographer, writer or social worker. I share my writings, views and ideas to those who wish to learn, share and be part of this journey. If a painter/musician charges a fee for his creations, then why can’t I raise some funds for my work and creations? If you can pay a little for travel magazines, adventure movies and reality shows, why not send me some funds/sponsorships for my nomadic adventures, writings, photography and real content? I am rarely sponsored by big brands or companies, as I tend to decline most offers as they come with regulations, commercial branding and red tapes. I wish to keep my work original, free and real. I wish to share my content with you directly with no filters, gatekeepers or commercialisation. Is that not enough for me to earn a little just to pay for my life as a nomad, for my travel expenses, bus/train tickets, my basic food and needs? I think it is. So fund me a little if you wish, if you like my content or try living as a nomad. It may help you open up to a new way of living.

Why should people pay for your dreams to explore the world? Normal people work first, save money and then take a trip. By the way... an urban nomad is totally selfsupporting
