Dean Nicholson is a 31-year-0ld traveler from Scotland. He was fed up with his job as a welder, so he decided to completely change his lifestyle by traveling the world by bicycle. In an interview with The Washington Post, Nicholson stated that he couldn’t carry on with his 9-5 job. He states that he wants to see the world in its current state.
Therefore, he started to go around the world as a solo cyclist. The beginning of his journey was his hometown which is Dunbar, Scotland and he has already cycled through eight nations. Nicholson shares his experiences and adventures online. However, from the day he met a lonely and hungry kitten, Nicholson’s plans have changed a bit. He came across this little kitten when he was crossing the Bosnian border into Montenegro.
When he first saw the kitten, he was just going to pet her little and move on. However, the tiny kitten was already being affectionate with him. When Nicholson turned around, he saw the kitten chasing after him. According to Nicholson, the kitten was quite skinny and scruffy looking. He knew that the poor creature was abandoned by her previous owner. Since the kitten looked like she wanted to join him, Nicholson took her to the vet and took her on his journey.
The name of the kitty is Nala. Nicholson stated that he named her after a character in ‘The Lion King’, which is one of his favorite movies.
Nicholson arranged his front basket as room for Nala. The adorable kitten soon started to show her endearing personality and adventurous soul. Wherever they go, she manages to attract everyone’s attraction. Dean and Nala’s bond grows stronger as they explore new places day by day.
