My name is Shameer Shah, some people know me as Sam and others Sammy, but that’s not important. What’s important is my journey and the inspiration behind this website and the utter urge to take you on amazing adventures.
I was born on 12th February not far from the Indian Ocean, near Masai Mara, in an equator country… it was Kenya, East Africa. When growing up there wasn’t much to do (or, so much to do) apart from playing outdoors and engaging with nature.
Riding my BMX for miles through dirt roads in order to go hang out with friends. Climbing trees just to see how far up I could get to the horizon. Hung out down by the creek for some salamander-spotting and crayfish catching. Everything you can imagine a curious young boy would do!
I became fascinated with maps, cultures and excelled in geography at school simply because I loved the subject. It brought me closer to what I felt was a way of life, a place I wanted to be, one with nature, but I didn’t know or realise my calling at that moment.
I took my first solo overseas trip when I was 14 years old and the next when I was 16. Those trips changed my life and my mindset. From that moment on, I was hooked.
Throughout my high school, university years and later years, I made numerous trips to wonderful places where I felt right at home, whether it was a trekking expedition in the wilderness or a couple of hours sitting on a beach. I took everything in like a sponge absorbs water and gradually, my thirst for the great outdoors grew and grew.
Whilst you’re reading this, I can guarantee you that I’m on an adventure or planning my next adventure. Psst… between you and me, I get grumpy if I’m not outdoors!
As a result, my adventures have spanned continent to continent, origin of rivers to oceans, mountain tops to lava caves and one thing I’ve learnt along the way, Mother Nature is the most important creator of all things real, magnificent and heavenly.
The outdoor lifestyle has become a positive addiction for myself and my family.
One addiction, we want to share with you.
You want paradise? Open your eyes, it’s right before you. See it?
Don’t see it? No problem, keep looking at the same time we will show you the way.
Everything you do in life is directly and indirectly being affected by your surroundings and how you choose to unlock your life’s journey. What is natural is yet very unnatural to some who find it difficult to get outdoors due to time, commitments or otherwise.
Don’t let anyone tell you there’s no secret to life because there is. It is a secret to a happy life. A life that will be rewarded with plenty of great mental and physical awards through being happy and open to the outdoors.
