My name is Mika — i’m an adventurer and ambassador cycle touring, hitchhiking and climbing trees around the world collecting experiences, sharing impressions and connecting people. I inspire and help others make their dream adventure come true — within their budget!

Why Not Mad Yet?

I believe in a global community transcending national borders and “tribal” affiliations while, at the same time, respecting individual preferences and encouraging self-expression. Democratizing the access to global travel is an important step towards such global community.

How?

For the past two or three years, i’ve been traveling around the world in months long expeditions with my bicycle or by hitchhiking, experimenting with low-budget methods to travel long-term. While i try to remain self-sufficient in most regards, i've also been learning to rely on the hospitality and creativity of locals to guide my exploration of their territory and solve the problems i cannot handle completely on my own.

What?

What i’ve observed and learned in this process is being documented with images and words on the Not Mad Yet blog. The blog is updated weekly (every Tuesday) with emotional chronicles and practical how-to's intended to both inspire and equip people to go on the adventure of their lives --- on whatever their budget might be!


Why Patreon?

I want the content i create to remain available free of charge to anybody who may benefit from it, regardless of how much they would be able to pay for it. In order to achieve that, i will need those who can indeed contribute financially to do so :-) Patreon provides a straightforward mechanism for that.

How may you help!?

Just choose the reward on the sidebar, then follow Patreon's instructions ;-) 

What do you get?

You get to foster an organically growing community free of advertisement for anything i don't sincerely endorse, and to support the democratization of access to global travel!

All patrons will also be signed up for the Not Mad Yet mailing list, and get firsthand access to what's new in the Not Mad Yet Universe in manageable sporadic summaries.


Are there other ways to support this project?

Absolutely! You're invited to check out the support section of my website to learn more about that :-)

Goals
$101 of $200 per month
A place to work! I estimate that, with another $100/month or so, i can reliably find a place to do my work anywhere --- from the occasional café/roadside pension when i'm on the road to the co-working space when i'm not --- this should also cover other basic infrastructure costs with data plans, Skype credits, etc :-)
