Meet Hendric Tay. Hendric, might come across as a 28 year old average Singaporean, who loves to travel and talk about his journey on social media. But when you take a closer look, you will realise, he does something special every time he visits a new destination. By uniquely merging travel and dance.
Hendric Tay is an avid traveller, an occasional dancer and an aspiring entrepreneur. Like most of us he had a regular nine-to-five job. In September 2013, he left his boring sedentary lifestyle and embarked on a journey of exploration and self-discovery. As ‘Travel is an awesome teacher’, till date he has visited 40+ countries and exposed himself to multiple cultures.
Of course, giving up his socially-accepted lifestyle was not a simple deal. He had to save money for a long time and convince his family. After years of saving, he could accumulate a reasonable amount in his bank account just before setting on the journey. Being brought up in a typical Chinese family, convincing his loved ones initially was another obstacle. In his blog he claims: After a year and lots of communication, I think the important people in my life finally understands.
Before starting his around-the-world travel, he planned to explore different countries for only a year and settle down again. But, things turned fortunate for him soon. Now he’s not only travelling but working on his own travel startup.To his readers, he suggests that it is better to do something you love than regret later about it. He is passionate about travelling and exploring the world around him. He recognized it and just followed his inner voice. He guides us by saying that if, after carefully analyzing the situation, we feel that things might turn favourable for us, we should take the chance to do it. Taking chances is part of the game.
