...I get alot of questions regarding my travels, how I got started and how I’ve sustained. So come along for a short ride as I rant a little about it for the ones that don’t know, or who were interested.
...How many of you see the pics from my journeys and say to yourself “man, I wish I could be there” or “I wish I could just get up and go” or “he’s living the dream”...? It wasn’t easy for me to make the commitment, but you have to want to do it and know how to do it “cost effectively”. I’ve been fortunate enough to do what I have after 12 years of hard work, saving up and planning. As for food, I rarely eat out and use my EBT card to buy my groceries. What little money I DO make comes from my ambassador programs or buying & reselling.
But besides having money to travel, you have to be able to adapt and constantly be aware of your surroundings...and trust me, I’ve learned the hard way! Although (when I’m on the road) I live out of my 2003 renovated Tahoe, it’s totally compatible for me and my needs. I don’t have a partner and I don’t have a pet....which usually leads to possible questions like “why do I travel alone?” and “don’t I ever get lonely?”. The truth is yes...BUT I’ve found that being by myself I’ve learned to share my thoughts, feelings and emotions with my inner self. I’d like to eventually find someone, but time will tell . As for my overall travels, it’s something I don’t take for granted and see more as a privilege, than a lifestyle. There’s a ton of ppl that live vicariously through my images, that wish they could do the same.
As I like to say, a comfort zone is a beautiful place, but nothing ever grows there! Get out there and see what awaits...
