Travel is in my blood. I grew up hearing stories of my mother’s adventures through England and my grandfather’s travel as a soldier during WWII. Adventure was encouraged in our home and National Geographic was given to me like candy. Needless to say, I have always had a huge fascination with the world but it wasn’t until I was 18 that I took my first trip overseas. I traveled with a group of high school wrestlers to compete in Slovakia. I came home with lots of bruises but an even greater desire to see, experience and understand the world.
Twelve years later and with a full passport, I have traversed the global several times and have no desire to stop. I’ve spent two years in Nepal, spent a semester of college in China and visited close to twenty other countries. I’ve done the normal tourist activities, gotten jumped by a group of drunken men in the street, been bed ridden with typhoid, travelled for weeks on foot through the Himalayas, seen hippos in the Nile River, slept on the Great Wall of China and meet my beautiful wife; all while exploring the world.
I share this adventurous life with my wife Sarah and our giant great dane Sadie in Louisville, Kentucky. We have a small house in the ghetto and love the adventure that come with living in our neighborhood. We love our city, go to a great church and are followers of Christ. I travel three months of the year and take Sarah with me on most trips. Our latest travels have included Ethiopia, Netherlands and England.
My hope is that you will find inspiration and gain a sense of adventure as you connect with my stories, tips and reviews on my travels. I would love your feedback so shoot me a line, post a comment or wave as you walk through the airport- I’m most likely there.
