Travel Plans
Buenos Aires, Argentina
dream destination
I want to get down here and visit my friends Martin and Laura, and take some serious Spanish lessons so I can have an actual conversation instead of just asking where the bathroom is.
Countries I've Traveled To
Languages Spoken
English, and enough Spanish to get around and get some beers.
Books you might find in my backpack
Music you might find me listening to while waiting for my plane
Most Memorable Travel Experience
Looking a Great White Shark in the face as it tried to bite through the shark cage

Screaming along with 50,000 other fans at a World Cup game

Watching an enormous, pissed off African elephant mock charge our game drive vehicle.

Reaching the summit of Mt. Fuji at sunrise with my friend who has never climbed a mountain in his life

Being covered with ice on top of Kilimanjaro

Watching a football match in a favela in Rio at the home of our tour guide and eating dinner with his family

Playing charades with a monk at a random temple in north east Thailand
On the road in Bulgaria and then Bucharest.
