Traveling has always been a part of my life. As a little kid my parents would take my two brothers and I on road trips across the country far away from the Disney lights. We would load up the brown mini-van with our favorite musings, pack a cooler full of peanut butter and jelly crust-less sandwiches, map our course on a AAA paper map, and hit the open road.

The same “hit the open road” spirit is with me today. For me, traveling is not just about discovering the world, but also yourself. Getting lost and not being able to speak the local language forces you to rely on yourself and adapt. Trying unusual foods or experiencing different customs can expand your horizon and feed your curious nature.

I have been very fortunate to have traveled to some pretty amazing locations over the years. To name a few…Paris, London, NYC, Costa Rica, Miami, Japan, San Francisco, Napa, L.A., Lake Tahoe, Telluride, and many more.

Below are my recaps, guides, and general travel highlights. Take a look around, get curious, and start planning. You never know where the road will take you.
