About this Episode

Tom Davies, GeoWizard

Tom Davies, better known online as GeoWizard, is an English YouTuber who uploads videos based around the online map game GeoGuessr.

In early 2019, Tom had felt a craving for an adventure — one that would push him mentally and physically and, with any luck, leave a sense of accomplishment at the end. He attempted to walk across the country of Wales in a completely straight line. He didn't upload the footage until summer of the same year.

He attempted to cross from the English border near the town of Oswestry, all the way to Dolgellau on the west coast. He made it just over half way before temporarily giving up, taking a 5 day break, and returning to walk the rest of the distance. Tom split the adventure into five parts, with each episode lasting just over 30 minutes. Each episode is entertaining and humorous as you would expect.

Tom has managed to accrue a massive following who is simply amazed at his ability to guess all kinds of random locations on the game GeoGuessr, a game that requires some intermediate travel and geographical knowledge. So gamers will be trying to guess the locations of remote towns or villages, roads, and other areas that might not be obvious at first glance..

There are dozens of other videos with Tom making impressive guesses on YouTube.

Top Tips

Do what you love

Time is our most valuable asset and it is something, that while on this earth, we should spend most wisely. No amount of money can buy time and you shouldn’t feel like you’re mindlessly wasting your life away

Many people choose careers that don’t make them happy. For what? For money, for social status. Only to find out that they would all do it differently if they had the chance. You only have one life, so don’t waste it working somewhere you hate just because of the money.

Work for something you care of love and see yourself living better. It is more important that you are happy and get to do what you are passionate about every day/

Be conscious

To be conscious is being aware of one's own existence, sensations, thoughts, surroundings, etc. Take a look at your life as if you were somebody else looking inside your brain. Observe what thoughts you entertain and what patterns you do everyday. Notice that some will be positive and some will be negative.

These negative thoughts and actions are the ones holding you back and they need to be stopped. The positive thoughts and actions you entertain and do every day need to be magnified and multiplied. Develop and grow your consciousness and be able to improve yourself mentally, physically and spiritually.
