HEY, GOOD LOOKIN!
I’m Michael! And yep, that’s me stuck in a hole in Thailand.
I’m a 25-year-old Londoner with a thirst for travel and exploration.
I genuinely believe travel is a cause for good in so many areas of your life and, from my experiences in the UK, I also think people don’t travel anywhere near enough.
Now, I don’t believe its people fault that they don’t trave enough. I believe it’s our societies warped sense of what a work-life balance is, and I believe people should feel free to travel as much as they wish and see it as an essential part of life like work is seen.
I have made it my goal to travel as much as possible, to one day make it a full-time profession and to help and inspire others to travel as well. This Blog is part of that journey.
WHAT I DO
Well, I don’t travel all the time, unfortunately :(. I live in Greenwich, South East London and I’ve recently bagged a job in a primary school. I’m a teaching assistant and I make sure the kiddies learn as much as possible and don’t eat glue. Of an evening and on the weekends I’m a swimming teacher and coach for my local club – I used to compete at a pretty decent level up until recently!
I love both these jobs because to me, they don’t really feel like work, I enjoy what I do and I look forward to going in, most of the time! The other great thing about these jobs is that they still allow me to enjoy my other main passion for travel. The school holidays are very generous and swimming teaching and coaching can be pretty flexible!
The name of this blog often leaves people asking; “what on earth does that mean?”, I’ve become so used to his response that I laugh about it and I’ve now got the story of the origin of “The Wandering Broski” down to a tee!
I was with my best friend Connor, pacing his front room trying to think of a name for this blog. I decided on “The Wandering Something” I just didn’t know what that something was! Now a bit of a backstory is needed here; Connor is half Polish and I am a quarter, and we joke around making English names sound polish; Connor is Connishko and I am Michaelishko. We also call each other “bro” a fair amount, so it kind of made sense to name it “TheWanderingBroski”, Broski being our stupid way of saying bro.
