Countries I've Traveled To
Languages Spoken
English, Japanese (though i cant read or write it.)! I've dabbled in many other languages but i'm never in one place long enough to properly learn them :( Used to be really good with Russian, but through lack of use, have lost a lot of it.
Books you might find in my backpack
Music you might find me listening to while waiting for my plane
Most Memorable Travel Experience
What a question, it's the little things that matter to me, whether its having a picnic at the top of a mountain in Southern NZ with friends from a hostel, trying a fried scorpion for the first time in Southeast Asia, or sitting on the back porch of a wwoofing hosts home in Tasmania sharing travel stories, and more recently core strength and meditation training in the river at my Wwoof'ing hosts farm in Aomori, Japan, those are the moments i remember the most. There was that one time with the cobra blood and whiskey in Cambodia... that was interesting.
Im a 25 year old american backpacker dedicated to a life on the road, literally I have everything I own in one backpack and that's it, I never stay in one place too long. As opposed to travelers who travel in trips, vacations, etc.. I am constantly on the road, nonstop. Whether I can get a work visa or have to find cash in hand jobs, my goal is to not have to stop, to stay on the road until... well until I find whatever I'm looking for lol. Traveling companions are always welcome! Follow the compass my friends :)
