Hi, I’m Hash.
I’m a socially awkward traveller – gave up my programming job 4 years ago in favour of travelling and self-improvement – well at that time to talk to girls. Since then I have lived in some countries and have travelled to some. I took seminars, went to hippy parties, workshops, lived in a cult, explored my sexuality and even got fake married for a month to research relationships – I will tell you about it if you ask me.
Eventually I exhausted my savings and returned to London in 2017. Worked for a little bit more. And soon found out that the 9-5 and having a boss was killing me. I decided to take my coaching skills with me and started coaching people and got into writing. This time I want to stay on the road for a little longer, inspire people wherever I go.
Here, I write about travel, my views on human psyche, relationships, making money online and my own thoughts and feelings.

It’s laziness. When we look up to a guru, a book, a coach, a savior, it is the relinquishment of responsibility and making someone else responsible. Someone else is the teacher, the coach, etc. If you are the very first person on earth, who would you look up to? You have to [...]
Some relationship advice now. I am not a relationship expert by any means. I have some experience in coaching people on relationships before. I have taken numerous courses around this subject, even got married for two months (fake) to try out what marriage feels like. Now, it is not the real deal but [...]
I don’t think there is such a thing as fear of the unknown. Here’s why. You don’t know what is going to happen so why are you afraid of something that you don’t know about? You don’t know if it is harmful to you. Is it because we don’t know whether what is [...]
If you have an explanation of why you can’t do certain something, you are using it as an excuse not to do it. More importantly, you don’t value what you say you value. It is possible that you are being polite and seemingly agreeing with whoever you are talking to (even in a [...]
I read routine helps anxiety. Having a sense of control. As long as you feel you are in control you are less prone to anxiety. But is that living? Always in control because you are afraid of being anxious. Do you want a routine? It is conformity. I wouldn’t like it. More than [...]
Courage is an idea, so is fearlessness. In the now, it is just now. I can guess what you are thinking. Hash is saying another obscure thing. Let me go into a little bit. Courage is an idea created by comparison. Measurement through thoughts. How courageous are you compared to another? Same with [...]
I have stopped journaling. Well, that is not entirely true, I have restricted my journalling habits. I also have a journal section on this very blog. The way I use it has changed. I use it more or less share my internal world to others, it is no more a private affair that [...]
It is the nature of our brain. Our brains are programmed to solve problems. So, if you are not solving a problem, the brain is smart enough to create a problem, which it can then solve. It constantly looks for problems out there to fix. That is what worrying is. And most times, [...]
It is a moronic behavior to self-improve. The self who is trying to improve is the self that needs changing. It is fairly obvious that it is doomed to fail. It is a fallacy to self-improve. On the other hand, is it different from change? I am not talking about transformation. Transformation is [...]
I have been traveling on and off since 2012 now and here are some quick tips on traveling for you to try out. I have never traveled for the love of traveling, well, in the beginning, I had this image of feeling fresh, joyful and adventure in my head - an idea of [...]

These are some apps and websites that I frequently use to find cheap accommodation when travelling. As a general rule of thumb, know what you want (hotel, private room, dorm etc) and where you want to stay (centre or outside the city) to get the most out of these tools. If you want [...]
When you travel, this question must have crossed your mind. You travel to meet new people, for new experiences and so on. You left because you were not having enough sex or you want some anonymity in doing so – so you travel. You travel because you want to "find yourself". You travel [...]
There are many benefits for long term travel. Here are some. It can be cheaper to travel long term. Many places are cheaper than staying in a place like London or Europe, especially if you are travelling to eastern Europe, Asia or South America. I stayed in Lviv, Ukraine for 3 months, eating [...]
Here are some tips on how to book cheap flights. I know how much you want to get the best deals out there when it comes to planning your holiday. I understand. And you can bag some good deals if you have some basic knowledge on how to find them. Use popular [...]
Bus travel can be comfortable too… Are you as intimidated by bus travel as I am? I used to be scared at the thought of bus travel. I have not done any long bus journeys in the beginning of my travels. Living in London meant that there is no need to do [...]
Booking accommodation can be stressful for any holidays, there are so many things to consider. But here are some basics on booking hostels, that will take the stress out of it and make it a bit easier. Hostels are good for having a good social atmosphere that you won’t get in a [...]
I was searching for ways that I can use when I was going to travel to Chile. Because I did not have a plan I could use with the EE network that I am on contract with in London. Then I came across this app. This app is very cool, because it shows [...]

No one likes a doormat, right? I mean a person who allows others to walk all over him or her. I’m talking more specifically about men in relating to women. Have a spine already, right? Have your own opinions. Don’t blindly agree to everything she says. Or to anyone. Other men too. Be [...]
I need to reject all authority in order to grow. The authority of knowledge and experience. The authority of the so-called experts. Find out things for myself. I have been dependent on books and workshops for a long time. It was merely an escape from the responsibility of finding things out for myself. [...]
I have heard this a few times. The first time it was a friend of mine to another. He said, I can’t tell anything to you truthfully, you are too sensitive. So, I have to lie. He thinks he is protecting her. Poor guy. He is protecting himself by not wanting her upset. [...]
We all are. None of us have access the actuality of the things. Only thought described version of things. And then we make more conclusions based on any previous neurotic memory and conclusions. Our thoughts create the reality around us. Reality is not actuality. Everything is so real and vivid to you because [...]
I pursue superior things for personal growth – to be better than the next person. There will always be a person who is better than me, there will be always someone who I can look down unto. I go after more inspiration, more self-discipline, to be a better programmer, to be a better [...]
We consume information. Whether it is garbage like the social media, gossip or it is the intellectual information, philosophy, knowledge for a skill etc. We keep on reading and reading and reading, watching one videos after another and it does not simply seem to have an effect on the quality of our living. [...]
Address those reasons, if they were really the reasons, and you still want to have that something you would have if the reasons were not there, you would be addressing the reasons that is standing in your way. If you are not addressing those reasons, that is apparently "in your way", then it [...]
May be religion has something to do with it. Do the right thing and then you will go to heaven. I am not a religious person though. So why. To be a good person. To be loved. Do the right thing so I will be loved. And if they don’t it is their [...]
I had a rather interesting argument today. I had booked a double bed in Best western hotel in Nottingham. I had 6 nights booked. I realised that when I started settling into the room, that the double bed is, in fact, two beds joined together. Normally, I would just accept it. I am [...]
Estonia was part of a trip with a friend of mine. We met a few years learning how to pick-up women back in 2015. Since then we stayed connected though haven’t necessarily “picked up” women. This was a trip to re bond and have a good time, and good time we had, indeed. [...]
