On October 1, 2011, I left behind my life in New York City to travel around the world for one year. That one year quickly became two years, then three, and so on. I’m still traveling full time and plan to do so for as long as I can. This page is a summary of the places I’ve visited, things I’ve done, and a few (useless) stats in the past 7+ years.

So Far I've Been:

2757 days on the road!​

Where I've been?

Below is a map of the countries I’ve visited so far.  All the countries in blue were visited during the Round the World (RTW); the countries in green I visited before the RTW, and the countries in red I’m expecting to visit in the near future.
