What I’ve Learned From 365 Days of Travel and Change

What I’ve Learned From 365 Days of Travel and Change

Exactly one year ago, I boarded a plane with a one-way ticket to Europe and an overstuffed backpack. I thought my trip would just be a little adventure before settling back into my normal life, but that is certainly not what it turned out to be.

Month 4 Round-Up

Month 4 Round-Up

Month four of my round-the-world trip was my first full month in Asia.  It was immediately apparent in entering Thailand, that my previous three months spent in Europe were all preparation for this entirely different set of challenges. Whenever I’ve known a solo traveler who went to very exotic places (pretty much anywhere outside of […]

One of my main goals in traveling internationally was to take fantastic photographs in unfamiliar areas.  I have gone through the thousands of images I have from the past 3+ months and pulled out some of my favorites to share.  Enjoy! And a dorky one of me, for good measure.  I have a lot of […]

Month 3 Round-Up

Month 3 Round-Up

Wow, what a month!  Looking back, I can’t believe all of these destinations were seen, people were visited, photos were taken, and memories were made within such a compressed period of time.  In Month 3, my route stopped making logical sense and I ended up zigzagging all over Europe and then over to Asia.  These […]

One of my main goals of traveling was to take a lot of photographs.  I have taken thousands and thousands and only manage to include a handful in each post.  With this in mind, I’ve opened the vault to pick out some snapshots you’ve never seen from previous destinations.  Enjoy!             […]

Month 2 Round-Up

Month 2 Round-Up

My second month of travel was drastically different from the first.  Going into this month, I had my first experience with the magic that comes from leaving things open.  When I stopped planning, my trip became something more than I could have ever designed it to be.  I opened myself up to possibilities I wouldn’t […]

Month 1 Round-Up

Month 1 Round-Up

I’ve just completed my first month on the road on my round-the-world trip.  Through this time I’ve had ups, downs, surprises, and lots of learnings.  I have gotten a lot of questions about favorite moments or opinions, so I figured I’d round-up the month’s highlights and …well… lowlights to give you an understanding of how it’s […]

The Farewell Tour, Part 2

The Farewell Tour, Part 2

When I decided to quit my job this past June and leave for a round-the-world trip in late August, I expected to have a lot of time to prepare and relax.  My flight is in a matter of days now and I can’t say I feel I’ve accomplished either of these goals.  I have, however, […]

The Farewell Tour, Part 1

The Farewell Tour, Part 1

The fact that it is already mid-August is beyond my comprehension.  However quickly it flew by, one thing is true: this has been the absolute best summer ever. I have been able to see so many people, make so many memories, and have so much fun.  It was completely indulgent, exhausting, and over-the-top, but I wouldn’t […]
