• Welcome

    Hi, my name is Scott Ferguson. I write, travel, and help others find freedom in life.

    On this site, I share my experiences of long term travel, spending a bunch of time in China, and creating a great life.

    We all are learning, experiencing, growing, & living life every day. Perhaps we can learn something together.

    Thanks for visiting. Peace.
