“The quality of your life is determined by the quality of your questions.”

– Tony Robbins

Why me? Why now? Why try? Why care? Why hope? Why dare to dream big? Why go for it? Why travel? Why dance when everyone else sits? Why create?


Why not me? Why not now? Why not try? Why not care? Why not hope? Why not dare to dream big? Why not go for it? Why not travel? Why not dance when everyone else sits? Why not create?


Don’t the why not’s sound just a wee bit better…


Change is the constant undercurrent of life.


And we have consistently been moved to change by the people who were bold enough to question the world as it is. By those who stopped, looked around and say “Hey, why not…”


This is what PorQueNo? is all about. Alternative ideas on how to approach this wild ride we all call life.


My name is Nathan and when I started this site in 2017, “Why Not?” was most certainly my mindset.


Why not move to Colombia without knowing anyone and without any job prospects? Why not learn Spanish? Why not go salsa dancing? Why not move to Argentina? Why not start a blog? Why not quit everything and backpack through Patagonia for six weeks?


You get the point.


I took a massive leap and traveled the world. And along the way, I started writing.


No, this is not a travel blog.


Yes, I do give travel advice. But only general advice. Your travels should not be tainted by my opinions.


This site is really about ideas.


I believe that life’s lessons are learned in contrasts and comparisons. The more we experience, the more contrasts we see, the more comparisons we make and the more ideas sprout up.


As I travel, I inevitably meet new people, have new experiences and stumble into new ideas.


This site is where I come to share those ideas.
