What does adventure mean to you?

To me, it's many things. Visiting a country where I don't know the language. Traveling off the beaten path. Meeting the locals. Staying with them. Trying their food. Experiencing life their way…

It's also an approach to life back home in the USA. Living life a bit unconventionally and enjoying local adventures, both offbeat and quirky.

As a passenger—reader, that is—you'll travel the world with me via storytelling, photo/video essays and authentic cultural experiences…and discover yourself along the way..
