Thanks for stopping by!!

First, welcome to 40 chasing freedom. A blog that documents one man’s journey into financial freedom and hopes to inspire others to do the same.

My name is Oscar, I am on my early 40’s and I am the person behind “40 chasing freedom”.

I  was born in Colombia but lived in London for almost 18 years. I am an Industrial Engineer by trade but a Hospitality Manager for a restaurant in London by choice.

I have traveled to more than 61 countries during the past 18 years. Traveling keeps me going and motivated. I always look forward to going to new places as this helps me break free from the hectic environment that my daily job entails. However, having a 9-5 job restricts the amount of travelling I can undertake, and that passion only gets stronger as I grow older.

This is how 40 Chasing Freedom comes to life.

  1. To document my personal journey from my current job into a desired state of financial independence.
  2. To write about my travel stories and inspire others to do the same.
  3. To create and connect a community of like-minded people and show them that it is possible to achieve a life of continuous discovery, fulfilment and travelling regardless of how old we are.

Join me on this new adventure of becoming financially independent by running my own blog and let’s see where this road will take me.

In the meantime, remember the old saying: “traveling makes you speechless and then turns you into a storyteller”. We travel bloggers are nothing but storytellers and our source of inspiration are the journeys we embrace. Journeys to different countries to see other cultures but also our own personal journeys where we grow from someone we are into a much better version of our own selves.

Let’s take that leap of faith and embrace the challenge so we can stop chasing somebody else’s dream and start chasing our own.

Thanks for reading.
