About Me

Wanderlust, adventure seeker, and general vagabonder. I was a civil engineer for 5 years before quitting my job in March 2015 to travel the world. I spent about 6 months in South America before taking a job as an English teacher for the next year in Seoul, South Korea. When I am done here I will continue traveling the world...

I left South Korea in August and made my way to Japan, Hong Kong, China, Mongolia, back to China and over to Vietnam. I spent 3 months working in Hai Phong, Vietnam and now I am heading to India and Nepal...after that I am not sure...

I traveled through India for about 2.5 months before getting sick and having to skip Nepal. I made my way to Thailand for a while to recover and then back to Vietnam to sell some motorbikes. Due to my continued stomach issues, I took a job in South Korea for 6 months. I did some quick visits to Japan again and the Philippines before returning to the States to work as an Engineer again and get healthy. I am now healed and planning to travel to Mexico, Guatemala, Belize, Cuba and beyond...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Its a great way to meet new people on the same path or those exploring short term. I am considering hosting and will be using couch surfing when I leave Korea.

Hmm, a bit relative depending on who is reading, but for me it was quitting my job and selling everything I owned to travel the world wherever the wind blows me...
