FOMO – Fear Of Missing Out.
FOMOist – A completely made up term (by yours truly) for a person with FOMO.
Hi, and welcome to my blog.
I am Manmeet, and no it’s not my p0rn name, but the name my parents gave me. I am a 30 something guy, born in India, brought up in New Zealand, a home-owner in Australia and living in London with my beautiful wife.
As you may have guessed by now, I am not very good at keeping still. Some may see it as an issue, but I think it’s a blessing. My FOMOism has allowed me to explore new places, meet some amazing people and make some life-long friends around the world.
I moved to Australia to be with the girl of my dreams. Thankfully the risk paid off! We bought a house together and got married in early 2014 after being together to over 5 years. Later that year, my wife and I decided that we wanted to move to the Northern Hemisphere to explore the intriguing world of Europe.
So we put our house on rent, packed our life into boxes, packed some extremely warm clothes and left for our life in London in October 2014. We moved without jobs, and without knowing a soul on this side of the planet. Stupid? May be, did it pay off? We are living the dream!
This blog will definitely have a strong travel theme to it, with a whole lot of randomness thrown in there for good measure and entertainment. So if you have any questions or comments, I’d love to hear from you!
Oh, my wife is a whizz with Instagram so I’ll be using a lot of her photos on this blog. You can follow her Instagram below.
