First off, welcome to my blog. Welcome to “Stay Adventurous.” And since I introduce myself in every personal journal I write in, let me also introduce myself here.
After an eventful first full year as a freelance writer (2009) and now over four years since my first piece published on the web (2005) I decided to create a personal blog. I know, finally indeed.
So of course, this outlet shall serve as an additional platform for my professional stories, but it will be more. I’ll write about the places and angles that I can’t get published in mainstream sites and publications. I’ll elaborate on the culture, cuisine, and cervezas I find on the road. Share my views, observations and discoveries from my global galavants. I’ll write what I truly believe.
So why Stay Adventurous?
First off, I don’t expect everyone to bungee jump or sky dive. And although I already bungee jumped and free falling from 10,000 feet remains on my bucket list, I know it is not for everyone. The adventurous person is someone who takes one or two steps outside their comfort zone, someone who moves beyond complacency, someone who changes their attitude to “yes, let’s have fun today”
How do you Stay Adventurous?
For me, I achieve that through my travels. I am truly alive on the road. After traveling through over 40 US States and over 30 countries I find my self in complete agreement with St. Augustine,
“The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.”
And yes I want to read the whole novel. But am I writing the book? No, but I am writing stories to inspire others to take and make adventure in their lives.
So who am I?
I can tell you I am the guy who appeared on Fox and Friends or Sirius Radio to discuss travel sabbaticals, travel writing, and the importance of following your dreams. Or that I am the Mexico, South American expert on CheapFlights News and Views travel blog. Or other credentials, accolades, etc… But what I’d rather you know is that I am just a man who enjoys the open road and wants to inspire others to become adventurous. I want to encourage others to take the trip, make the journey that can and will change your life. I did. Now I can’t imagine my life any different.
So what’s next?
What isn’t next? Destinations. Experiences. Fun. I plan to continue traveling, continue inspiring others through my writing, and continue enjoying my time here on earth.
