Member Supported, Never Corporate Sponsored

I'm Richard Nikoley. Free The Animal began in 2003 and as of 2022, I've written and published 5,000 posts. I write what I wish...from health, diet, and food; to travel and lifestyle; to politics, social antagonism, expat-living...location and time independent—while you sleep—income. I celebrate the audacity and hubris to live by your own exclusive authority and take your own chances.

Free the Animal really means to free yourself to reach your ideal potential in all areas of your life, learn from mistakes and successes, and move on.

Fasten your seat belts. There's no chance you won't encounter turbulence.

I’m Helping A Rural Single-Mom Family In Thailand

I will make this short. I've begun a GoFundMe campaign and yes, I know what they did to the Canadian truckers. It's no fault of these two girls, their mom, aunt, cousin, or grandmother who all live under the same...

My Interview With Ex-American Sean Ring

Most people understand what the term expat means. It's someone who lives outside of their country of citizenship, typically by choice; i.e., not particularly applicable to military or corporate employees stationed in another country. As military, I lived in Japan...

My Swollen Labia Minora Face

Yesterday was one of about 4 Big Buddha days per year in Thailand. I dunno. It's not quite like Christmas in the west; perhaps it's more like lower-keyed Easter. Thais will make a trip to a temple, always gifts in...
