About

Wide Open Travel is about doing what fascinates me. It’s about being a multidimensional individual, and finding out what caliber of person I am. When I look at the map and see the dots that make up my starting point and my destination, all I can think about is the stimulating experiences I will encounter in between. Getting lost and finding new ways, breaking down and repairing, getting screwed and finding warm hospitality. Saying yes to leaping outside my comfort zone. Cause that’s where things get interesting. You overcome imaginary boundaries created by yourself. So I will eat sketchy food, get drunk, turn strangers into friends, hike mountains, and drive through vast deserts. All because I can. And because wanderlust is incurable.

Current Trip

What started as a dream over 7 years ago is now starting to become a reality. To travel the entire length of the Pan-American Highway. The longest road in the world. I will be doing this portion of it on a motorcycle. I essentially have no experience riding a motorcycle but I figured I got plenty of time to learn down there. So starting in Peru I will head north to Cartagena, Columbia then turn back down and head down to Tierra del Fuego, Argentina. So let’s begin my longest and undeniably toughest adventure I have ever undertaken.

    I am so excited!! I can’t wait to live vicariously through you both. “Essentially we will be hurling ourselves at one-third of the earths surface in an incredibly unsuitable vehicle just to see what happens.” I love it.
