Hello.  My name is Nick.

I was born and raised in California, USA.

At the age of 27, I’ve decided to step away for a year, and travel around the world.

Five years into a successful career, a supportive employer, a wonderful friend group, a loving girlfriend. What gives? Why leave? Why now?

I don’t know. The world, it beckoned. It always beckoned, really. Now just felt right.

And so, in pursuit of knowledge, adventure, experience and understanding, I’m off.

I created a blog because there are many people in this world I care about and love. With this website I can try to continue to stay in touch with those people.  I can explore the branches but remember my roots.  I can share a glimpse into my silly wanderlust mind.
