Nomad Spotlight: 11 questions With Anthony

 

We talked to Anthony and asked him some interesting questions in order to get to know him a little better. Here’s what he had to say about his background, some memories and personal insights.

 

Where’s home? 🏡

Anthony: Good question, but difficult to answer for me. Especially when you have English, Greek, Italian and Scandinavian roots. Let’s just say my home is with me.

 

How would you describe yourself in 3 words?

Anthony: Walker, spiritual and Toltec.

 

If you were a city in the world, which one would you be and why?

Anthony: I’d choose Reykjavik 🇮🇸. It’s colorful, resistant to harsh conditions, not easy to access but full of life.

 

Share a favorite quote with us.

Anthony: “Jump and the net will appear” by John Burrows.

 

Where’s the best place you ever woke up?

Anthony: If I had to pick, I’d say one of my favorite places was a comfortable hotel in Bali called Subak Tabola. You could go there with your eyes closed and not worry about a thing; their team is incredible.

Waking up is already a present though. Does it really matter where?

 

What’s a cause that you’re passionate about?

Anthony: Access to clean water 💧. Too many people are still struggling with that basic need in the 21st century.

 

What’s your first-ever travel memory?

Anthony: I was 15 years old and it was my first solo trip. 700 km away from my parents’ home. It was a trip to a small village in France, close to Soulac-sur-Mer. It was 90% similar to my hometown, so not very challenging in terms of getting around. But I was free.

 

What’s always in your bag, no matter what kind of trip you’re on?

Anthony: My camera 📷.

 

What’s the best meal (not from home) you’ve ever had from around the world?

Anthony: It’s a very humble meal from Chile called Choclo. It is basic with nothing extraordinary, just vegetables. But I enjoyed it like never before. Also, I was probably starving.

 

What’s the best travel book you read that you’d recommend? 📚

Anthony: Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe! It’s not a travel book, though. It’s about adventure and discovery. Discovering the external as well as the internal.

 

What does joining With Travel Community as a Nomad mean to you?

Anthony: A relay, a link, and something new for me (as I’ve been quite independent for a few years now). It just feels like a community of like-minded people who do their best to share everything they love about travel.

For me, community is about sharing views and getting a different perspective on things. It makes you evolve.
