Experiences Over Possessions – life is for trying not buying

I was inspired to make this video after watching several excellent videos from the Youtuber Fearless and Far (https://www.youtube.com/c/MikeCorey). The expression he uses, “Experiences over possessions”, and his attitude towards life, travel and other cultures is in great contrast to the modern disposable commercial Weltanschauung pushed onto society. He also reminds me a lot of myself in my youth. Before Me became 5 Me’s….

We only have a short time to live in this form on Earth and we shouldn’t be wasting it trying to constantly acquire junk and lead a sedentary existence – we should be trying to experience as much as life, and the world, has to offer. We should always be pushing the boundaries, testing our mettle, opening our eyes and minds to new things which in turn could improve how we live and how we think. The absolute opposite of a closed-minded and prejudiced individual who doesn’t want to travel or meet new people for all the wrong reasons, mostly through ignorance of how things really are outside of what the media, religion and politics tell us. Truly, if you want to have a better life then adjust your mindset to being free and don’t project per-conceived ideas onto other places or people without experiencing them first hand yourself

My name is Edward O'Toole and I live in one of the wildest, most beautiful parts of Europe, in the Carpathian Mountains of Eastern Slovakia. Life is an adventure - both physically and metaphysically... I've been living out here for the last 22 years, along with my wife, 3 kids and Jack Russell. My main interests involve bushcraft, prepping, survival and wilderness living (self-sufficiency and self-reliance), ecological, green, smart and natural solutions, motorcycles and motorbike club life, writing and art (I have 7 published books), and exploring the paranormal.
