THE TRAVELER: THE ULTIMATE BLACK SHEEP.


Bah bah black sheep. Whatever. I hail from New England. You work hard in high school to get into a good college. You work hard there to get the good job. Then your high school sweetheart wants a ring and a white picket fence. Done. Babies, mortgages, fixing your gutters, etc. etc. etc.

F that. So I disappeared to California for a 5 years. Why? I dunno. Why not? I left, I took the more difficult route. Now I'm back. Back to wander the world as the Walnuts. I travel. I experience. I encourage and divulge. That is the direction right now, if you can call that a direction. Almost 30. Yeesh. No babies. #winning.

Since I've partaken in the the world of travel, I have felt alive. I have felt accepted. By you.
You the travel world. You wander just like me. You understand me a bit better. Your courage and support makes me want to go a bit further, travel a bit longer. I enjoy you, the cultures, the stories, the camaraderie. So I tell you all this. Keep going. Don't stop. At some point, we will have to settle in. Now is not the time. While our knees still work and your bankroll still lets you.

Don't stop wandering.
