I started traveling in solo 2012 when a friend couldn’t go last minute on our trip to Panama. Since then I haven’t looked back visiting over 70 countries on every continent. I am on a mission to break out of the main tourist areas, use public transport, and explore deeper to find real authentic travel experiences.
Originally from Denver, Colorado, I have lived all around the world in places like Auckland, New Zealand, Buenos Aires, Argentina, Bishek, Kyrgyzstan, Lampang, Thailand, Southern Californa, New York City, and Washington D.C..
My two travel goals would be to visit every country in the world and every province in Thailand. Even though I’ve seen much of the world, Thailand keeps calling me back. I spent a year there teaching English, and I am head over heels in love with this amazing country.
I am also an avid language learner speaking Spanish and Thai fluently, basic Russian, and a little Italian.
I recently spent two years living in Washington D.C. working as a political consultant, but I decided that pure partisan politics wasn’t for me. Instead I will be attending Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies to study international relations this fall. I hope to combine my passion for travel, technology, and international affairs into a career.
The goal of this blog is to provide travel advice and “how tos” on some of the more difficult to reach places in the world. I often found that this information was lacking from guidebooks and websites leaving me to chart my own course. I hope to share that information with others so they too can get off the beaten path. Join me as I try to visit every country in the world and share my wisdom online.
