Five years ago, when I was reading the most celebrated book, the Alchemist by Paulo Coelho,
I came across the following extract :
“Well, I’d like to see their land, and see how they live”, said his son.
“The people who come here have a lot of money to spend, so they can afford to travel”, his father said. “Amongst us, the only ones who travel are shepherds.”
“Well, then I’ll be a shepherd!”
-The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
I always had the urge to travel before, but I often wondered whether I had enough money to do it. This book just provided me with a straight solution which would let me live my dream.
It was simply in front of my eyes. If I wanted to travel the world I had to be the shepherd too.
Fast forward to today, Am I a shepherd?
No, I am not technically a shepherd. But I love travelling in the cheapest way possible, which makes me the modern day Shepherd Traveller. If you think you are a Shepherd Traveller too join me by subscribing or just head over to the Contact Page and submit your travel story.
