    You are a really nice young man Nathaniel, you are inspiring many others and sharing your journey. We are all unique and in my life it is obvious that peace of mind is my greatest accomplishment. There is art to being lazy, there is art to being alone, there is art in simplicity. This pandemic has taught me not to let fear in to my head. I love your channel. Your hair is great in this video as well.

    I related with what you said in the beginning so so much! I think life ends when one stops asking questions and stops learning, growing, that is what truly makes us old, not the number of our age. My grandpa is over 70 but still working, still learning, still DREAMING of what he will do. I believe it's harder for life to take him away because he has so much to live for and a WILL to keep going and growing.

    "Curiosity is what makes life worth living. If you're curious enough about something, you'll find a way." This doesn't limit to knowledge. Where you live is full of mystery itself. Go out, go for a run or just take a walk. And then discover streets, roads, and places you've never seen/been before. Don't be afraid to be lost and just wander. You may find something interesting in your neighborhood or discover a spot you may want to revisit someday. Life, after all, offers you endless adventure waiting to be ventured.

    One of my favorite things to do actually is sitting on a bench, or on a table in a café, beside the window and watch people live. Watch them interact, watch them get sad, angry, happy, emotional, and I get overwhelmed by how many stories there is out there. Like we're so tangled with our own life and problems (which is natural) that we often forget to sit and think about it all. I couldn't understand it then, but I think it's one of the reasons that made me get into languages and literature. I wanted to be part of other people stories, hear them, understand them, their lives, their cultures, interact with them...thank you Nathaniel for your work, it really helps me understand myself better to make myself a better huma, being for myself and for others :)

    I discovered your channel a few days ago and it's really a revolution for me. The concept of slow travel and digital nomad have changed my perception of life. And i'm not exagerating. You gave me a goal. The funny thing is that I wrote a comic about 6 teenagers going on a roadtrip. And without spoiling it too much one of them is planning to be a digital nomad. I created it a few months ago and it's still in the making but I didn't have this name, I didn't know the concept. I invented it for him and now that I found your channel I see that it's possible to do that in the real life. I'm giving myself 2 years to establish myself online as a content creator, a youtuber, an artist, whatever name it'll take and I let this weird worldwide pandemic pass us by. In 2023 I'll do what you are doing right now. Living and see how others live in different cultures, different languages. You inspired me so much and showed me a new world. Thank you so much for your videos. Seeing that you're the same age as I am really blew my mind at first, even though I know I shouldn't compare myself to others. Yet after a little mental breakdown (not kidding) it inspired me. You can do that at 22 ? I can certainly do that at 24. Thank you again Nathaniel, for showing us the world is accessible and for inspiring me to go see it.

    This is a very ENFP way of viewing the world; are you an ENFP? The reality is there is no single 'key' to a more interesting life. People who are more predisposed to an ENFP mindset (e.g. explorative, human focused, curiosity focused, values focused) are going to pitch the same to others. The person who is predisposed with an ISTJ mindset (e.g. traditions, rules and conventions focused) will pitch that as the 'key' to life. Perhaps the real key to life is seeing this biases and hidden patterns in things? Oh wait... that's the INTJ mindset (i.e. that's how I think ;) )

    I have this habit of crying on my own when the emotions I've been feeling is too much for me to bear. After I cried, I feel being strong again. But the people dear to me, the people who are close to me sometimes view this as weakness, that I am so weak. What is your point of view of this? I tried to control my crying or shedding tears but I become sadder and depress.

    For those in a hurry: 1) Curiosity is the antidote to the bullshit 2) Curiosity needs space. If you try to fit in others space, less curious you will be. 3) The key to a interesting life is to have a messy one. 4) Start looking at life as it is a experiment. What do you like now? What is it to be you in where you live? 5) The curiosity is infinite, you can be curious about a lot of things.
