Practical philosophy comes to life in author Daniel B. Martins travels. This non-fictional story is constructed from stream of consciousness diary entries written as he moved from California to Hawaii and later traveled from Hawaii back to California, only to leave again for Paris, Amsterdam, Lyon, Annecy, Geneva and back around. The mission was simple: forget cultural biases and see the world through a fresher set of eyes. The study of conscious experience of phenomena known philosophically as phenomenology (a scary sounding word to some) is the method used to blur the borders between philosophy and nonfictional literature in Life is Weird.
Traveling is a great way to gain more perspective on life. Traveling takes you out of your comfortable world of normality and challenges your conceptions by way of other persons normalities. This may at first be quite unsettling, but it can also be wonderful. Open your eyes, and become excited for whatever comes around the next bend. Let that excitement motivate you into finding your happiness. You can start from wherever you are. Explore your fears, and find your liberation.
