It begins

by Dan Fey on July 7, 2011

So this is the start of my journey and the start of my travel blog.  Though I’ve been thinking (and dreaming) about it for a while, I’ve recently decided with about 95% certainty that I will embark on a year long round the world adventure starting in January.  At this point, I really don’t know how to plan for it, but I’m glad I have a buddy, Drew who has the same goal.  I have a solid five months to plan my trip to make sure I get the most out of it.

So far, I’ve decided that I want to start by ski bumming somewhere in the US could be Utah, Colorado, or Alaska.  If I can work as a ski instructor, live off of the minimal income, and get free skiing for 2 to 3 months, I will consider it a great success.

The other thought I had was to pick only 3 or 4 ‘hubs’ around the world to visit as a home base.  This will make it easier to find accommodations and work as I travel.  At the same time, I’ll have the opportunity to branch out and visit other places.

Just thinking about traveling is already energizing.
