I’m James

Welcome to my travel blog!

Traveling and exploration is a big part of my life. I believe that one of the best ways to gain different perspectives and enhance overall personal growth is through visiting and immersing yourself in other cultures.

I have a strong belief in continuous personal transformation, influenced by the teaching power of the world and the benefits of traveling. With each new adventure, I have obtained an incredible amount of knowledge and life lessons, and met some amazing people along the way. Growing up in a family of entrepreneurs and teachers has no doubt helped shape the way I am today, with a thirst for pursuing dreams and the desire to share the lessons from those experiences.

I have visited almost 20 different countries in my life so far. The most notable the trip I have taken was back in 2014, when I traveled solo to Peru to fulfill a lifelong dream of hiking the Inca Trail. Gasping for breath at Dead Woman’s Pass, I knew this was just the start of a new aspect of my life.

Since that life changing trip to Peru, I have had a burning desire to share my traveling knowledge and lessons with the rest of the world. With the influence from my upbringing and my traveling experiences, I created this blog in hopes that I can empower and teach others the lessons I have gained through my explorations, and meet others on similar journeys. Being able to share my knowledge and inspire others to obtain growth through travel is something I am truly passionate about.   

Though you will find my stories on this blog, in order to truly experience the power of travel and exploration, you have to take the leap and try it for yourself. I hope that I can encourage and motivate you to open up to the idea of gaining new perspectives through traveling.  There is truly no other feeling in the world like it.
