In the sky, there is no distinction of east and west; people create distinctions out of their own minds and then believe them to be true.
– Buddha

Currently situated in Lynnwood, Washington, my travels to this point have taken me in every direction, from the west coast to the far east. I’ve traveled to 30 countries across four continents and explored 40 states in the U.S. as a solo traveler as well as with family and friends.

Although I sometimes peruse my copy of 1000 Places to See Before You Die, starring the destinations I’ve been able to visit so far, I don’t have a formal travel bucket list. As I learn about new people and places, I catalog them in my mind (or in one of my sophisticated excel spreadsheets!) and resurrect them when the opportunity presents itself.

I’m going to see where the road takes me and enjoy the journey along the way.
