This is a story of life change, big adventures, and finding happiness.
I learned the hard way that the American Dream isn’t my dream at all. Waiting until we retire to do the things we love seems like a bad idea. I believe days should be used to build happiness, relationships, and life experience, not someone else’s fortune. So, I quit focusing so much on money and instead made myself rich with the blessings of experience and freedom.
If you feel like there should be more to life, you aren’t alone. I’m here to help you start a new life of travel and adventure. But in the end, you’re the one who will have to hoist the black flag and go get a few scars. Until then, enjoy some tales of a vagabonding life lived fully and deliberately.
I will see you on the road.

Vagabonding (solo, independent travel) isn’t always glamorous, but it can change you forever! The people you meet and experience you gain are well worth some discomfort.
Escape your cubicle or the Rat Race, hoist the black flag, and get out there. Write your own stories someday.
Life is good when you make it so.

I’ve been told over and over since my escape from Corporate America to begin vagabonding travel in 2006: “I could never do what you do.”
Actually, you can! This style of travel costs less than staying at home. I’ve helped lots of people escape their cubicles to begin traveling the world. If you do what others won’t, you can live how others can’t.
