Hi! I'm Dave. Welcome to my website. I will be embarking on what I expect to be a multi-year adventure with the goal of traveling to almost every country in the world. Through this website I plan to document my travels.
I have several objectives with this website. They include:
1. Inspire others to travel. I believe that travel creates better understanding and friendship with people of other cultures and thus nurtures world peace.
2. Help others who want to travel by sharing my experiences. I know I benefited greatly from the experiences of others who so kindly shared their experiences via the web.
3. Document my journey for my friends, family, and myself. I never was much of one to keep a diary but now with the ability to add pictures, video, and more along with words I'm thinking it is going to be a lot of fun.
4. Showcase my adventures through video and pictures. I bought a GoPro camera and a photo camera and plan to capture my adventures through photography. I'm new at both but hopefully will be a quick study.
More in-depth stories I'll communicate through blog posts on this site. For more of the daily happenings type comments please be sure to follow me on my Facebook page. I hope you will follow along and even help me out. If you have been to great places and done amazing things anywhere I find myself, please share your ideas. I'll check them out.
My journey begins On September 15, 2014 from Olympia, Washington. I expect the first year to cover Central and South America.
