About Me


Adventure finally has a new face!


I likes exploring all cultures and counties as well as countries deemed dangerous by the media. I love the mysteriousness of places where the local tourist does not go. I enjoy ancient history, cultures, old Maps, autonomous regions of the world, renewable energy and people.


"Traveling has allowed me to respect the intelligence and integrity of all people within their culture."

"Adventure is a state of mind. Following your dreams is not always about being safe."

"Your biggest enemy is your Backpack."

"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness." - Mark Twain
