Hello and welcome to my first serious attempt at a travel blog!

For those of you that I have not yet met, itโ€™s very nice to meet you. A little about me:

As a self proclaimed adventurer, writer, gamer, and passionate believer in the power of all forms of creative expression, I love to explore the world around me whenever possible. I love talking to people (everyone, and I repeat EVERYONE, has something interesting to say) and I love to make people smile ๐Ÿ˜„.

For those of you that already know me, you may also be surprised that it has taken me this long to make this leap of faith. Some of you may have even been convinced that I wasnโ€™t going to come back from my trip to Japan for my 30th.

Needless to say, Iโ€™m very glad that I did. 2015 has thus far been host to a number of particularly excellent choices and experiences, and Iโ€™d like to invite you to come with me as I pack up my belongings and spend the next 12 months figuring out how to cross off a few bucket list items and make it to each continent at least once.

I hope you enjoy sharing in successes, failures, non sequiturs and my journey to fall in love with life again. Welcome aboard!
