About Me


travel, eat, drink, party, wash, rinse, repeat


A lot of adjectives.. some including - adventurous, spontaneous, sarcastic, witty, laid back, but also eccentric, and somewhat dependable and honest.

I'm really uncertain what life is all about, but to me, at this moment it's about eating and drinking my way around the world and meeting people and learning about cultures. I wish to live every day like Anthony Bourdain

I don't believe in karma, destiny or what-if's
but I do believe in morals and paying it forward


I'm not an expert on the places I go, I'm not an authority. I'm a visitor, a traveler, an enthusiast. Travel isn't alway pretty, it isn't always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, and it can even break your heart... but that's okay. The journey changes you... it should change you. It leaves marks on your memory, on your heart, on your consciousness, and on your body. You take something with you, and hopefully you leave something good behind.
