Oh darling, we’ll be adventurers. I’m a slave to your smile. your the hitchhiker and I’m the driver willing to go all the way to the destination with you. we’ll take the back roads. when you look at that sunset I’ll be looking at you like your magic. we’ll travel mad like Kerouac. drink like Hemingway. curse the world like Bukowski. we’ll be champions of the road, moving any little bit of light towards us. I’ll love you. I love you. I love you.

-to my future wife

And our adventure will begin here.

When I say I want to travel I don’t mean I want to stay at resorts and go on tours with tour guides or buy key chains from souvenir shops. I don’t want to be a tourist. When I say I want to travel I mean I want to explore another country and become part of it. I want to discover small coffee shops in Germany and Italy and France. I want to walk on beaches in Australia and browse the book stores of England. I want to hike the Great Wall of China and go cliff diving in Hawaii I want to meet people who are not like me, but people who I can like all the same. I want to take pictures of things and places and people I meet. I want my mind to be in constant awe of life on earth. I want to see things with new eyes. I want to look at a map and be able to remember how I was transformed by the places I’ve been to the things I’ve seen and the people I’ve met. I want to come home and realize that I have not come home whole but have left a piece of my heart in each place I have been. This, I think, is what is at the heart of Adventure and this is why I plan on making my life one.
