Ever since I was a kid, I always wanted to travel the world and possibly live in another country when I grew up. At the age of 8 or 9, I got an atlas as a Xmas present and would look over it, sometimes for hours. Many years, 12 countries travelled and 2 resident countries later, my dreams of travel & expatriation are slowly coming true.
I’ve lived & worked in the United Kingdom since 06.28.2010, and I hope to stay here for a bit. I can’t predict the future, but hopefully I’ll fulfill a couple of goals while I’m here, however long that’ll be. Feel free to join me as I continue this journey of living/travelling in another country, as well as trying to hop over to visit other countries too. I don’t know where the hell I’m going, but hopefully this journey will lead me to something(s) and somewhere good.
EDIT: I returned to the United States on 10.22.2013. Uncertain future. Travel, however, will always be certain.
EDIT: As of May 2020, I’ve traveled to 20 countries and hope to visit many more.
