I am not just travelling, I am a Traveller.
What I am here for is not just to be involved in the act of travelling, it is to unleash my nomadic spirit and free up my gipsy soul and be led by it.
To me, travelling is not a profession or something I do in my spare time when I need to escape, to be somewhere else. It is not a hobby or a list of places and things to do abroad.
Travelling is my mindset, Liu Xin is the purpose of my life, the Meaning of it. I continue moving, every place it’s not like home, all the senses are activated, no auto-pilot mode, getting lost is an essential part of the journey, openness and curiosity are the guidelines.
I am not just telling stories, I am a Storyteller.
I have chosen to tell stories as my mission. There are many stories that need to be told and I feel it is my responsibility to do so.
These are stories of innovation, stories of hope and solidarity; stories of social connections.
Many of these stories are about communities, the traditional communities that populate our planet, which are the guardians of our planets and our cultures.
Because I feel I must tell these stories, I consider myself a Community Storyteller.
I am not a traveller that happens to tell stories, and neither a storyteller that happens to be travelling I am a Traveller & I am a Storyteller.
and these are my stories…
