My Mission

 

First of All, This is Me

 

Travel Birdie - This is Me

 

Long story short, I quit my 9 to 5 and embarked on a journey to explore the world and do more of what makes me happy – travelling.

Believe it or not, wandering for 8 fabulous months around the amazing South-East Asia really did the trick. Exploring new places and cultures broadened my mind, I discovered my love for the ocean and scuba diving, I met a lot of fantastic people, I got more in touch with nature, and most importantly, with myself. The best education I’ve ever received!

I couldn’t possibly keep all that for myself, hence this little blog was born. Sharing is caring after all 🙂

 

My Mission

The more I was doing of what I love and makes me happy, the more I started seeing the bigger picture. We get so consumed with our everyday lives, doing things that don’t fulfil us, that we forget how beautiful life is and how incredible and precious our planet is.

Scuba diving opened a door to a new world to me – showed me the fascinating beauty of the deep blue, but also shocked me with the ugliness of our throw-away culture and the insanity of the plastic pollution.

It became my mission not only to show the beauty of the places I visit (both above and below sea level), but also to remind people how to get back to Mother Nature. From sharing my knowledge about all natural home remedies, to raising awareness on how we can protect our planet and do better as human kind.

Something that started as a little personal travel blog is now dedicated to responsible travel, scuba diving adventures, all natural home remedies, and the lifestyle changes we can make, in order to clean our lives and oceans from plastic.

In my effort to make a difference, I also started Ocean Nation Online Store, offering environmentally friendly and waste-free alternatives to plastic, ocean inspired jewellery, the products and gadgets I personally use, and more…

10% of all profits from Ocean Nation is dedicated to funding nature preservation projects (clean-up dives, beach cleanups, marine life preservation projects (Project Aware), etc.).

 

My Outlook On Life In A Picture And a Quote:

The wallpaper that changed my life

“When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.”John Lennon.

 

I hope you enjoy my stories and I don’t be shy to follow me on Social Media as well 🙂

Happy travels and many happy bubbles,

Gerry
