Hey guys!
I’m new to the whole blogging scene and have had many the reservation to starting one in the first place. First off (disclaimer!), I’m not much of a writer. I know what you may be thinking, why bother in the first place, right? What makes my voice any more important than the next travel blog out there?

The current mission: Central and South America.

As I continue my travels, I hope you will check in and share your own stories and experiences. There’s a whole world just waiting for us!

Have you ever taken a backpacking trip?
How do you mentally prepare for an expedition?
Any packing mishaps?
