Well, it’s been a little over 6 months since I last posted, and a little over 4 weeks since I returned to the states after a remarkable year abroad.

I used to think long-term travel was just something I needed to ‘get out of my system,’ or I would somehow feel content with carrying on with normality after finally doing so.

The biggest thing I’ve learned? None of that is the case.

All I’ve been able to think about since returning (with the exception of the solid 2 weeks I spent sleeping off jetlag and fatigue) is when can I do it again


I feel no obligation to offer any sort of explanation as to why I’ve neglected posting for so long, other than this: life happens, and sometimes you just need to live. And nothing else.

There are so many stories I want to tell. I’m in the process of pondering the best possible method to share these stories with the world, and when I do, it’ll be my greatest accomplishment thus far.

Following my dreams is significantly harder than I could have ever imagined, but when I think of the alternative, I’m glad I took a chance to break free a year ago. Things are far from perfect, but at least I feel confident I’m on the right path.

Although I’m not currently traipsing about internationally, much to my chagrin, I’m going to finally start posting about the destinations I visited since Thailand, which include places in every continent except Antarctica and South America.

I can’t wait to share my adventures with you. Get excited.
