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 125 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.

I caught the 11:45 pm night train from Milan to Paris. They were sold out but someone advised me to go to the conductor of the 1st car and ask if there was room. For cash there was, 45 euros got me a bed in the sleeper car. I arrived in Paris the next morning and got another train to Brussels to catch the Bruges connection. Bruges has one of the most beautiful old city centers that I have seen in Europe. Belgium is famous for beer, lace, chocolate and frites {french fries} , except they use mayo rather than ketchup. The fountain had soap bubbles in it.
