Round the World travel (RTW travel)
Left Denver, CO USA in March 2012 with a one-way ticket unsure where life would take me…and I'm still out traveling the world close to 4-years later
Travel gear / packing
I've gone from a backpacker to an ultra light backpacker which takes time and skill. Now I travel with a normal size bookbag (carry-on size) and can live out of this for 1-6 months
Travel blogging / writing
I've been writing and blogging since 2011, I know it takes a while to get an audience so I'm trying to do more now that I'm in areas of the world with consistent WiFi, plus regaining a new (used) laptop after mine was stolen in Nicaragua hindered my online presence a bit.
I've traveled the world and spent less than what some people will spend in a few months. Discipline and being innovative is key!
You will be AMAZED at how easy it can be to find seasonal work, volunteering, help exchanges, etc to save and/or earn money…just ask me how!
Traveled 12+ countries throughout Western Europe all by railway
Visited and lived in every country in Central America, I know it like the back of my hand
Only had a chance to spend time in Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru but meeting other backpackers I feel very confident in understanding how different it is to travel SA
I've lived in East Asia for more than a year working and traveling
Spent more than 10 months in SEA visiting almost every country in the region
