Hi! I'm Tim.
I'm not rich. I'm not one of those people who 'lives a life of travel'. I'll never visit all 197 countries, and I'm not even sure I'd want to if I could. I've never been given a free flight or a free stay for my opinions (not that I'm opposed to that), and I'm way too self-conscious to record a video of myself walking and talking down a crowded street in Cairo (or anywhere else for that matter).
Chances are, I'm a lot like you. I have a regular job. I have to build up money and vacation time to go anywhere, and I usually try to save money on travel whenever I can.
But ever since I took an impromptu solo road trip across the southern tier of the U.S. at the end of 2012, I've discovered that travel is something that invigorates me, that challenges me, that removes me from my comfort zone and busts through every preconceived notion I have of this world and its people.
Although they are each short stints of exploration, I call each of my excursions 'Walkabouts', because as a whole they have been a source of immense discovery of both the world and myself. From the familiarity of a car trip across America, to the comforts of Europe, to destinations in South America, Africa and Asia... each trip has been its own story. Click on the links to hear more about those stories, and if one of these destinations interests you, feel free to ask me anything.
