I have been strangely fascinated by the rest of the world since a very early age. Nearly visiting every US state before graduating from high school, it wasn’t until joining the Army that I really ventured off of the North American continent for the first time. That was all it took to inspire the insatiable wanderlust that now drives me to new destinations across the globe.
Currently, I spend as much time out of the country as financially possible. Working overseas as a contractor has paved the ways for me to live my dream. I’m constantly researching new places to explore for Scuba Diving, Kiteboarding, Sky Diving, and Snowboarding.
I stress that I am nobody special. There are many people who, like myself, share a love of travel, and spend a large portion of their life on the road, with their own respective set of stories to tell. Honestly, I still consider myself a novice traveler. My hope for this site is not to lavish about my own adventures, but rather, to inspire the reader to go and create their own. I thank you for visiting my site, and I hope you enjoy the stories inside. ~ Chad
