All About @WhatShouldBazDo
“Baz is that Aussie guy who lives where & how other people tell him to – in an effort to test the theory that “anything is possible.”
He will literally go anywhere, be anything, and do whatever his readers tell him to… So long as it also has a positive impact on the world…
He is a teacher by profession, but a nomadic wanderer in practice, always searching for the next challenge or adventure to learn from.
He changes location & career frequently but insists it is all worthwhile and with great purpose. The only long term constants are a will to explore the world, a healthy addiction to health, and a love of writing & (mis)adventure.
About This Site Why I Let Others Decide My Life
Like many other travel blogs “What Should Baz Do?” is a way to keep in touch with friends and family back home in Australia, but it is also many other things. The interactive concept of having other people make the suggestions, and then ultimately decide many of my life decisions offers some pretty unique capabilities.
Being overseas, away from friends and family, one of the fundamental reasons for starting a blog is nearly always going to be a way of keeping in touch with loved ones back home: to remind them all I still exist; to ensure they know where I am around the globe; to share your triumphs; to hear and feel their support through any troubled times; and, of course, to gloat a little bit about the adventures I find myself on.
How It Works
WWW.WHATSHOULDBAZDO.COM works like a real life ‘Choose Your Own Adventure’ novel.
I have set “normal life” aside to become the living protagonist of a global adventure story decided by other people.
There are two types of decisions you can be a part of:
(1) THE BIG DECISIONS: including which country to live in, what to become, and what cause to support.
(2) THE SMALL DECISIONS (or “Mini Conundrums”): such as what style of moustache to grow, whether to learn Spanish or German, or what mini-challenges to complete along the way for charities or good causes.
This project is about exploring & testing the possibilities of life outside of our comfort zones – and leaving a positive impact as we do that.
