The community here takes a lot of pride in what we do and we love to share our experiences with folks, just like yourself, who are looking for information about destinations all over the world.  

I first started this blog as a personal online journal to document my travels backpacking around the world; that was back in 2011.  

Since then, it has morphed into its own beast where I now write about inspirational stories, cities, off-the-beaten-path destinations, and outdoor adventures that usually veer towards a budget friendly wallet.
