WHO I AM
Who am I? What have I done?
Well, I was born in New York in 2911. My father was a military officer. At the age of 21 I moved on Magnus II with him, in one of the most peripheral area of the city of Newcastle, called “Tasky Shore”.
When I begun to consider the “Shore” my home, in 2946 things went wrong over there. I had to leave. And I needed to go silent for a while. I had to shut down my well established business, BANTAM CONSULTING, and get rid of all what I’ve done. To survive. This is not something I like to talk about.
Someone calls me “Cumberlain”. It’s an old joke from high school. I maintain this nickname in some circuits, just to recall old timers.
My nickname is “Twenty Square” because I’m very fond of the “Royal Game of Ur”, an ancient game represented by two gameboards found on Earth, in the Royal Tombs of Ur in Iraq by Sir Leonard Woolley in the 1920s.
My late saying is “Have ship. Will travel. I’m an adventure seeker“.
I DO THINGS DIFFERENTLY
What separates this travel blog from other travel blogs? Unlike other travel websites, I do not take sponsored content or paid trips. Every place, restaurant, or attractions has been personally visited by me (or one of my guest contributors) and I pay my own way.
I sleep in dorms, wait for an air taxi, try those alternative space lines. I do it all – just like you would. I go and do the same things regular travelers would do. When I (or one of the regular contributors) am invited on a trip by a tourism board, I don’t write about anything you wouldn’t be able to do for yourself.
I refuse to promote websites, companies, restaurants, or services I wouldn’t use or have experiences you couldn’t replicate. I can’t help you travel on a budget if I don’t know how to travel on a budget – and taking free trips and sponsored advertising content prohibits won’t help you.
This travel blog is about showing you what it’s really like living in the ‘Verse.
