There is one thing that everyone wants to do is roam the world. Travelling is a good way to de-stress and meet new people along the way. It is something every person who works in an office has a plan to go to many places not only in other parts of the world, but even in their own country. Exploring new places, meeting new people and eating local delicacies is an experience that will give you lots of memories and stories. But with that comes the concern of family members if you decide to embark on an adventure all by yourself. Here is one guy who decided to go on a similar adventure and also found a genius way to keep his mother informed about his well being.
1 The guy who travels the world
Jonathan Kubben Quiñonez is a 27 year old guy from Brussels who had enough of the usual routine of going to office and coming back. He then decided to do what most of us have thought of doing and still probably harbor the dream of doing so. He decided to quit his well paying job once and for all and decided to take a trip around the world. He worked as a model and consultant in Brussels and he left that plushy and well paying job, sold his car to get enough money to make his world tour dream a reality. But even after doing so much, there was a problem in him going for a word tour, his mother. His mother was concerned about him leaving his job and selling his car and going on a world tour.
It became more concerning for her mother, when Jonathan went to Cuba because the Communist party had restricted the usage of internet and high prices of phone calls made it impossible for him to contact his friends and family. He knew his mother and family will be concerned and he had to come up with a way to tell her mom that he was fine. What he did next will make you smile at his thinking and wit.
2 The genius way to answer her mother’s concern of safety
In order to continue his journey around the world and keep her mother informed of his well being, Jonathan had to come up with a way that worked seamlessly and he decided to create an Instagram account and started posting pictures of himself during various stops on his journey and held a card saying Mom, I am Fine. This saved him money from making close to 200 calls a day talking to his mother and saying this same line over and over again.
He made everything funny as time and his adventure went on. He posted pics from Cancun, Columbia, Panama and scuba diving holding the sign in Caribbean. His account has garnered more than 38,000 followers including her mother (I guess). He has taken pictures with stranger holding the sign for him as he danced with a girl in streets, getting kisses from a deer and even being interrupted by a monkey during one such photo. You can check out the photos yourself by following his account on Instagram named “momimfine” .
