Hello, welcome to my website.  

Here you will find some stuff and some things.  

I am incredibly grateful that you decided to stop by. 

Here I will write about myself… I will add and subtract from this as time does its thing.  

Brownish black hair. BLUE eyes. above average penis, a beautiful penis. INTJ. Alternate between great world spanning adventures and the hermit life. Usually Being A Misanthrope. Incredibly muscular arms and legs with a skinnyfat stomach. Ex-girlfriends bought most of the clothes I wear. I drink 4 litres of 7UP Free every day. I don’t like much about the modern world. i quit nicotine and caffeine cold turkey and it worked. i don’t drink alcohol anymore. I write things. I create videos. I have a podcast, it’s the best podcast. I mostly like doing things alone, learning by myself, executing by myself. I only enjoy relations with certain fully vetted fellow travellers of time and space. My favourite countries are South Korea, Japan and Taiwan. I was born in England. I love the sweltering horror heat of the tropics and the biting cool of the 49th parallel north and above. I have recently (as of writing this) become addicted to chess. My favourite colour is black, my least favourite colour is probably some brownish burgundy kinda thang. My favourite Wikipedia article is this one. I’m currently sweating at my desk in my underwear and running shoes in a severe heatwave. It’s late, I’m tired.

Good night.

‘MEGA‘ is Brad Nicholls’ impassioned, entertaining, soul-stirring account of his epic journey of mad youth and an inspiration for all aspiring long-term world travellers.

The travelogue captures both the thrill and exhaustion of long-term travel, told through the eyes of the traveller.

In 2013 Brad Nicholls flew to the United States after traveling Europe by bus, train and boat for much of the previous year. After a three month adventure across America he kept going and going and going…

Somewhere along the way the trip became a journey; a coming of age adventure around and around and around the world.

Nicholls has brought it all to life on the page, writing an often hilarious, always brutally honest MEGA memoir of rail adventures across America and Australia. Drugs and drag in LA and Mexico City. A summer of friendship, seduction, betrayal and redemption in Seoul. Months of street dwelling and net cafe living in Japan. Love in Taiwan. A seven month overstay. A deportation and year-long ban. Humid chaos in Singapore. Retrospection and reclusion in Indonesia. Existential bliss on a Hawaiian beach. A harrowing near-death experience in the backcountry of Canada. Triumphant returns, days lived in airports, life affirming layovers and so much more.

The Route

England>United States>Mexico>South Korea>Japan>Taiwan>Singapore>Indonesia>Australia>United States>Canada>United States>Canada>Japan>Taiwan>Hong Kong>Macau>Hong Kong>England

Enjoy the journey.

THE DECEMBER 18, 2021 EDITION

The night before I was still fighting away that enemy of a voice inside that questioned if I could really do it.

I was in no shape to spend five hours in the sun walking twelve miles along a rugged and hilly coastline. I thought about changing the mission…

‘Maybe I could do a hike instead.'

‘Maybe I can just make a vlog in Nice or Monaco.’

I went to bed only 90% sure I would be putting my body through hell the next day.

In the morning I slept another hour after my alarm went off, I woke up and reset it knowing that once it went off again, I would be doing it, I would be walking to Monaco.
