I am just a freedom loving girl, trying to live a life full of dreams, passion and inspiration from the outside world and peace, tranquility and love in my inside world. One part gypsy and one part hippie, I love to experience life in the most unconventional ways and enjoy living a life of uncertainty. My days are ruled by the sun and moon and I dance to the beat of my own drum. With flowers in my hair and shells in my pocket, I walk on the road towards conscious living where I sing along with the birds and dance with the wind.
Love and kindness to all.

“Hitchhiking is defined as travel by getting free lifts in passing vehicles. most people… would describe it as one way of getting yourself killed. I define it as the eye opening experience of seeing kindness in strangers.”
In 32 Months from PechaKucha Bandar Seri Begawan’s 6th Volume speaker Finah Yusof, founder of Gypsy Borneo, shares an amazing journey. A two month holiday to drink coffee and meet new friends ended up instead as an explosion of adventures and incredible encounters of human kindness in the span of thirty-two. Full of curiosity and the need to seek, her decision to continue traveling (or, really, hitchhiking) brought her experiences she never thought she would ever see and feel. She learned many things from how people are to how to survive to how to be what we all are… human.
Finah urged people to have trust and to drop their fears. To say "Yes" instead of hesitating. To be alive.

The Root of Music

Rhythmic music became a trigger for Alexandre Wielemans who traveled all the way to Africa finding soul in their music by traveling to Bamako, Mali with his traveling companion, Finah Yusof. It was there that he realized he had to go through a quest of creating and finding the perfect instrument that would reconnect him to his deepest roots. Meanwhile, for Finah, the music she learned in Bamako was a revelation to an almost transcendent connection she had been missing.
