This is a story of life change, big adventures, and finding happiness.

Our world is a place of wonder, and I didn’t want to wait until retirement to explore it. So, I changed my priorities. Instead of focusing on becoming wealthy, I made myself rich with the blessings of life experience and freedom as a solo traveler.

Balancing work with travel is possible! I’m here to help if you want to start a new life of 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.
