About Me

WHO KNOWS ???, United States
After getting my first passport in 2006 and traveling to climb Kilimanjaro in Tanzania my life changed. I began the process of getting rid of all my possessions and traveling the world. Traveling to over 110 countries and all 7 continents, hostels have been my home. This "new life" has taught me what is important and it was NOT accumulating money or possessions. Traveling is the best education. I hope my blog will encourage others to travel. My World Tattoo was a way for me to express my PASSION FOR TRAVEL.

CHINA, The Great Wall of China

Visiting the Great Wall of China in 2008 was one of the highlights of my travel adventures. The Great Wall stretches 6300 kilometers (3,915 miles) in length. It is not one continuous wall but made of many different sections. If you measured the length of all the different sections , . distance would be more like 22,000 kilometers (13,670 miles) The widest section is about 9 meters (30 feet) and the first parts of the wall were built over 2000 years ago. Definitely hope to return and see it with new eyes.
