What do you do and why do you do it?

Shall explore is my motto, it exists to discover one's own true nature. I write on my website www.shallexplore.com expressing and sharing thoughts as a journey journal to discover new and more life. I make videos doing things that stretch me out of my comfort zone and share them on YouTube regularly. I also share photos on Instagram to present my interests and connect with other mind and nature explorers. I write, I video and I capture as a means of taking notes of my journey on earth and sharing my journal along the way. I love to travel and I love technology.
