In 2012 I spent 3 months in Ghana and was bitten hard by the travel bug. It changed my life and I haven't looked back.

I had to go back to school for two years to finish my degree but traveled as much as I could in that time and, having finally graduated, I recently departed on the grandest of adventures. Now I am traveling the world solo experiencing as many wonderful places and meeting as many wonderful people as I can.

For every word there will be a thousand pictures and, while I talk mostly about my adventures and often forget to give location and transit details, you can feel free to message me for details about the places I have been or the adventures I have had. I am always happy to extend a hand to a fellow traveler.

 

They have the most fantastic little turf roof houses and barns in Iceland. I got out of my car to explore this one and, after getting into it from around back, popped out of what remains of the front door to surprise a dutch couple who had wandered up while I was exploring inside. 

They told me that while most farmers have to watch their cows during the birthing the farmers who owned this never did as the elves that lived in the rock overhanging the barn would protect and help the cows and, because of their elven helpers, the farmers never lost a calf. They left the first milk after the calving, which is a special, thick milk, out for the elves to thank them for their help. This custom went on until the 20th century.
