2019 Thailand

It felt impossible to try writing a book about traveling the world without visiting Asia. I decided to visit what’s known as the “Golden Circle” to backpackers solo-traveling through Southeast Asia. 


Flying across the Pacific!

Travel makes you stronger, smarter, and a better human!
