Welcome to the Vicarious Voyager! I have been fortunate enough to be able to travel extensively around the world and will continue to do so for as long as I can. Having the opportunity to see other cultures firsthand and meet so many wonderful new people has really helped me grow into the person I am and to continue to strive to be a better person. If you haven’t traveled much before, going out into the world can be a bit daunting and scary, but if you take the leap, you will push all the boundaries of who you thought you were.
I enjoy telling stories and traveling allows me to have a continuous log of experiences to pull from to weave these tales. From a young age I have always had an underlying sense of urgency in that there are so many things to do and so little time to do them all. For better or worse, this has pushed me to pack in as much as I can, not only in life but also in the way that I travel. I keep telling myself that one of these days I am going to slow down on my trips, but so far I haven’t reached that point yet!
Even if your travel style differs from mine, I hope that you are able to learn from my experiences and use that information to craft your own exciting journeys. In less than a month I am gearing up to embark on a month long adventure around Europe in which I plan on being in nineteen different countries. In the meantime, I will be posting about throwback adventures and making reviews of some of my favorite things related to travel.
