How I Found My Passion

I was a freshman in college when I realized I wanted to travel the world. The summer before I started my first year of college I took a couple of trips. All within the United States.

My Adventurous Bucket List

I’ve never really liked the idea of a ‘Bucket List’, but as I get older I kind of understand them more. As I inch closer to ‘Middle-age’ I am beginning to feel like my time is running out. Especially since there is so much I haven’t had a chance to see or do yet. If you had asked me ten years ago if I had a bucket list I would have laughed. But here I am sitting in my office dreaming of all the things I want to do and see and actually making a list of them!
