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.

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 and enjoying adventure.
