About This Trip

Primarily I’ll use this blog to assure my family I’m still alive. Apparently that’s high priority for them; me staying alive. Probably less so to some of you. But for anyone who has asked me why I’m doing what I’m doing, I’ve tried to answer:

I want to. So I’m going.

As cliche as it may sound, I think there’s a calling within all of us. We’re yearning for a journey. That adventure is different for everyone, but it’s there in our hearts. Everyday life tends to weigh us down with commitments and responsibilities. It distracts us from these ideas and fills us with fear. For me, backpacking the world is a real dream. So, what better time to start than the present?
