How I Got Started

I did not take my first trip overseas until I was 22.

In 2014 I got a job in Qatar with a standard two-weeks-a-year vacation.

Going abroad for work was challenging but it changed my life. It exposed me to all the possibilities the world had to offer. I experienced another culture, wildlife I had only read about in books, new cuisines, and met people from around the world. Since then I am on a mission to visit each country in the world.

Countries visited: Nepal, Qatar, UAE, Turkey, Netherlands, Spain, Thailand, Germany, Poland, Czech Republic, Austria, Hungary, Slovakia, Italy, Vatican City, Belgium & Srilanka.

Working full time in a corporate job I have managed to travel several countries & territories, traveled hundreds of thousands of miles, made lifelong friends, learned multiple languages, and, most importantly, made it my mission now to help travelers like YOURSELF realize YOUR travel dreams

Despite having a very humble start and background considerably fewer resources- I have followed my passion for traveling along with managing a full-time job for more than a decade now.I want to have a corporate job and a renegade, and I want to prove it is possible.

The more I travel more I realize that even though divided by boundaries, fashion, cuisine, and culture how similar we are to each other. and I must say Travel is not only places but people too.
