🌏 #places

I must be a wanderer? Been hopping from one place to another the last 15 years or more. I've lost track as to how many times I've changed address, as in transfer from house to house, with little more than my laptop and a few other meager belongings. 😅

Wanderlust. I love to travel. It is an irony though that I don't like going on airplanes.🤭 My goal is to go to as many destinations all over the world as much as I can afford, as often as possible.

🎮 #play

Fond of reading and writing (+rw), but seldom has the time for both anymore. Prefer paperback. 

A former World of Warcraft (WOW) addict. Had the Dota 2 phase too. Presently deliberating on the next Nintendo Switch Steam Deck game to buy.

Currently satisfied on binge-ing Netflix and YouTube content, lazily sat down on a couch munching peanuts or chips.
