Walk the Talk

Millions free seats to give away

Walk the talk

Who needs money when you can lead a simple life? Who needs a car or a bike when you can just walk? Who needs shelter when you can simply make your own or being offered/accepted by welcoming individuals to their homes?

There are many interesting questions or scenarios that many asked when I posted his picture on my instagram and it’s about a story about the David Attowe’s journey and he is a walking brand known as “Nomadic Lion” (you can also follow him on @nomadiclion instagram).

When he walks, he is able to tell a story or even hear stories from different walks of life and cultures. If he were to be given a lift by a car or other means of transport, that conversation won’t be as engaging as it will be only for a short time due to the convenience of a transport. Good point there!! He’s trying to send a message for all of us to slow down and appreciate every single thing in our lives and be grateful of what we have in front of us. I have to admit he is a true icon of abundance and he doesn’t need all the luxuries if you were to give him. That really shows how much of a visionary David is.

I recently met up with him after his interview on UBD FM last week and he is such a welcoming character and what caught my eyes was his trolley that he modified for his bag pack. Awesome!! So I brought him for so called “limteh” at Fleur de Lys and I didn’t know he’s a sucker for cheese cakes but of course, he still loves the cheese cakes back in his country (England).

I won’t waste much time now and I shall post the questions that were asked by my followers on instagram.

Yes, he showers everyday in fact. There was one situation where he would shower in the rain but at night if he happens to sleep outdoor. Shower butt naked *lol*

He will sleep every where possible but he tries to avoid sleeping by the roadside. In Brunei, he was fortunate that he was being offered to stay at a few places. His success rate of asking for shelter at people’s home in Borneo has been at 95%. Interesting.

The three fascinating things about Brunei are the people, the mangroves and the mini crocodiles. Yes, he is a big fan of mangroves and he believes Brunei has the best mangrove so far in Borneo.

He’s a big fan of noodles aka Maggi. He has eaten all flavours with egg but one that remains his favourite is Indo Mee.

The things that he brings in his bag are his notebook (Sony and he needs a new one since it’s almost broken), his camping gear, three sets of his Rasta colour top, medical kit and his SLR.

He wears the red, green and yellow top (like a Rasta man) because he used to live in Jamaica and stayed in the mountains for months. This top also catches the attention of the people whenever he walks.

He is an advocate humanitarian, a photographer, a videographer and an aquarium designer. Interesting, right? And he is still single.

Some of the challenges that he went through was such as lack of access to food and water, getting bitten by ants and mosquitoes but the biggest challenge is more on the mental quadrant. It’s important to stay happy and positive.

People of inspiration for him are Mahatma Ghandi, Vinoba Bhave & Bob Marley. He walks to create a change and inspire people. His inspiration song is from Bob Marley’s Soul Rebel.

Funnily enough he doesn’t have blisters and he wear the perfect sandals for his walk. He can just keep on walking and walking without feeling pain. I guess he has the right type of sole for his feet that makes a lot of difference. When I do my half marathon, I was already struggling at the 5k mark due to the minor pains in my joints and ankle.

Today he left bandar around 5:30am as he heads off to Miri which will take him at least 3 to 4 days. He has been in Brunei Darussalam for a good two weeks and he was also in good company. Sometimes in life, we always seek for more and more but not for David. He is more than happy on what he has and money hasn’t been an issue on his journey. Now how many of us can live the life that he is experiencing – abundance.

He is bound to be back next year to Brunei and I look forward for his presence. All the best, buddy.
