Travel The Whole World

I’m someone with a huge passion for adventure and world travel. My website currently has 6,649 pictures (yes I keep exact track) taken in over 50 countries from all 7 continents, including five of the Seven Summits I climbed.

I have a dream of visiting every country in the world and will try my best to share my travels through photos and personal experiences.

I’m also trying to raise money for future expeditions and have put up a few photos of my for sale, you can view them here. I hope to one day do a long trip lasting six months or more. While this will require planning everything from backpacking travel insurance, to saving up for the next few years and returning back to a normal life, it’s something I hope to make a reality before I settle down.

Next Three Possible Trips

Central Asia

After my recent trip to West Africa, only Central Africa and Central Asia remain the two major regions of the world I haven’t visited yet. Since I just was in Africa mixing it up and going to Asia is more appealing. Basically I’d be interested in doing some of the Stans such as Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan or Tajikistan. I’d rather go to Iran first, so a trip to Central Asia would be likely in the fall time. Unlike my past trip to Africa which had regions of high crime and banditry I can relax a bit on this trip. Things like Designer Travel Bags for Men or other travel luxuries minus my camera will still have to leave behind!

Africa

At my home I have a scratch off world map that makes it easy to see where I’ve been and where I haven’t. I feel like I’ve done quite a bit of traveling in Africa but when I look at my map it tells me otherwise. As far as my most dangerous countries go, I could do a trip to the Congo where I’d love to see active volcanoes and mountain gorillas. Even more exotic than that would be a trip to Madagascar! So many places to choose from…

The States

I’ve been putting a lot of my resources into knocking out the 50 states. While traveling through the states I’m able to stay with friends, go camping, or book hotels through www.booked.net. This makes traveling very easy, so I’m proud to say that as of 2014 I have added 49 to my website! Of all places, Ohio remains the only state that I have never visited for leisure. I generally don’t like to visit places in their winter, so even though I could easily drive here on a weekend this one might have to wait until spring. Once I conquer Ohio I will continue for the rest of my life to travel to the 50 states. There is still an infinite number of things to see and do before I truly see my own country. As an example I’ve been to Florida more times than I can remember, but never to the Everglades or Miami! Likewise in every state there is probably something very important I haven’t experienced yet so I’ll always keep traveling domestically.

    Your website is so much fun to read! I stumbled upon it when I was trying to find information on South Africa. It gives me a mini mental vacation to read about your travels while sitting at my desk :) I appreciate that your blog doesn’t come off as pretentious and you simply talk about the things everyday people wonder about. Thank you and happy travels from Oregon!

    PS. Go to Central Asia!

      Thanks Doni! Central Asia… Yes it has been calling me for a while. I’ll see if I can conquer Kyrgyzstan and one of its neighbors this spring!

    Great adventures – excellent website. I was somewhat surprised that you are an American. As a Yank myself, I have been ‘vacation’ traveling worldwide for many years (after the military, also), yet sadly the majority of Americans don’t even own a passport, yet have incredible world opinions on everything. Don’t know what they are missing….
    My adventures started with a dream of experiencing the 7 Natural Wonders of the World, a goal completed long ago. I am getting on in years but this hasn’t slowed me down, just required adjustments. I have great admiration for you in following your dreams and discovering firsthand what our planet and it’s people are all about. There are three things in life that have sustained me: something to do, someone to love, and something to hope for. Good luck in your adventures!
