About Me

My photo
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 100 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.

Dedication to BRAD PASSMAN

I have thought about Brad alot on this journey. Personal reflection was my primary reason for undertaking this quest. The Clam Shell represents a hand with fingers exemplyfing the pilgrims helping their fellow man. I can think of no one, other than my father, who did more and asked for less than Brad. The last time I saw him he drove me from Natchez to New Orleans airport in the rain on Christmas morning so I could catch my flight. When we shared an apartment we talked often of him traveling with me. Sadly, when he died his filled out passport application was still on his kitchen table. He loved the outdoors and I am sure he would have loved to walk the Camino De Santiago. He will be with me every step of the way on this journey.
