This is my Story...What is yours?

Josh Cahill BBC Journalist in Kabul

Your Life Becomes Better By Making Others Lives Better....!

Hey there, my name is Josh and I'm from Germany. I'm a regular guy and one day I started to do irregular things. I'm an award winning blogger and journalist with a big passion for exploring the places nobody else does. When I was 22 I decided to hitchhike to Iran to explore the Middle East. I used to live in the UK, Australia, Dubai, Kabul and now I call China my home.


I'm one of the few people who travelled Afghanistan by themselves and not getting kidnapped by Taliban. I documented the Arab uprising in Egypt in 2013 and I have travelled to 70+ countries around the world. I'm a travel expert and I also have a big passion for airplanes. I was on of the first bloggers to experience the new Airbus A350 and my airline reviews are among the most googled on earth.


I strongly believe that everybody can create a job they love and so do I. Writing in English is challenging for me, even though I grew up billingual but I rather focus on sharing my experience instead of being to focused on my choice of wording. I like to keep things simple so everybody can get to enjoy my stories. Happy Reading!
