First of all, thank you for reading this. All of this is meant to be a guide to traveling even while working full-time. Be it by taking advantage of being in school, long weekends, short trips that don’t require much time off, etc. I hope to catalog the time you should spend in various cities/countries, fun things to do, and my own personal experiences along the way.
I began this blog when I started my first job while working in the Congo, and I simply wrote about what life was like in one of the least traveled and most misunderstood parts of the world. What it has morphed into is a quest to see every country in the world. To answer your pending question of, “why on earth would you do that, what if you find a place you just love?” I will say that before going to the Congo, people told me how dangerous, undeveloped, and how terrible it was would be to live there, and yet it turned into the best decision I have ever made.
As a result, I decided that I should attempt to see every country, because even the most “dangerous” of places have something to impart upon those who go there. However, unlike many travelers, I cannot drop everything on a whim and go (which I do find very admirable and recommend it for those who are itching to do so). Therefore, many of my trips since Congo have been short, fast, and to the point. Also, I was fortunate to have traveled a lot with my family throughout Europe (20 countries in total), and so I skipped those countries in this blog, as those were stories for my family and I to tell together. At a later date I hope to add my late mother’s own blog posts into my archive for people to see as well.
Again, thanks for reading, and I hope you enjoy some of my experiences. At the very least, I hope you like some of the pictures.
