About Nicholas Andriani

At a glimpse:Β Archaeologist, Arabist, sometimes rug dealer

Thank you for visiting my page. I’m a novel writer and activist. A travel blogger and part-time archaeologist. I’ve lived and worked in the Middle East, Mexico, and the United States. Am currently based in Kansas City, Missouri and in the editing stages of my debut novel. .

It all began in 2011 with the Middle East on the brink of revolution, that’s when I thought it would be a good idea to book a one-way flight to Morocco and hitchhike to Egypt.

My Travel blog began here and has since introduced me to the wonders and generosity of people and the amazing cultures across our beautiful, yet sometimes tragic planert.

I’m always seeking new opportunities and feel it in my heart that I am here to help you.

I was born in the Texas Hill Country and raised by a family of German Romani’s chasing opportunity across the American South. We settled in Austin, the town which introduced me to the worlds of punk rock and literature. A town known for its nonconformity; its very existence an act of rebellion!

After high school I hit the road. A spontaneous bus ride to Mexico City led me into the hazy mountains, the deep emerald forests of Chiapas where I discovered the beautiful and heartbreaking world of the Maya (yes, they still exist) and found something deeply rooted, down in my heart of hearts: A need to be part of something greater, to commit myself to people less fortunate.

After some time in Chiapas I found my way back to the States, to Kansas City where I fell in with a strange batch of artists, painters and writers. Deepening my interest in literature and writing.

With the Middle East on the brink of revolution, mid-2011, I thought it would be a good idea to book a one-way flight to Morocco…
