Welcome to my life as a traveler!

Click on the map to learn about my travels to each country

Here you’ll find stories and chronicles of my experiences and adventures as I’ve set out to see the world. You can read about where I am planning to go, where I’m currently traveling, where I’ve been, and where I dream of going someday.

I don’t dispense a great deal of advice. We all travel differently, and I don’t profess to be an expert. (If you do need travel advice, Google it, or see my list of recommended travel websites and blogs.

You’ll find plenty of photos to accompany my blog posts, but if you like, you can skip the storytelling and check out my photo albums page, with links to all my online galleries.

And please leave comments! I love to hear from people who read my blog.

Follow me so you can be notified when I post new content. 

Thanks, and bon voyage!
