I’m Neil, and I am from Boulder, Colorado.
Before starting to travel, I worked for an adult literacy program. It was a wonderful job and a fulfilling life, but I had some money saved up and have been wanting to travel more.
I decided to start this blog for a few different reasons. First, I wanted an online journal that I could look back on later in life and remember the people and I places I encountered. Second, many people have asked me to keep them updated on what I am doing and where I am. I figured it would be much easier to do a blog rather than email each person individually. Third, I love traveling and writing, and this is a great way to practice both.
This blog will focus on stories from my travels, the positives and negatives of travel, the people I meet, and just things I find interesting in general.
I have made a map of the places I have been so far in the world.
