Five years ago I decided to stop living my life vicariously through others, ditch the "all American dream" to a routine life and travel the world. Since then I have traveled to over 65 countries & 6 continents, seen 6 of 7 wonders, climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro & Mt. Kinabalu, volunteered in India & Africa, dived with great white sharks, jumped off the highest bungee in the world, and re-discovered myself. I've created Savvy Vagabond to show the beautiful world as I see it, share my tips & tricks for backpacking on a shoestring, and most importantly, to inspire others to Refuse to Live Vicariously

“The very basic core of a man's living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun”

A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul, like these sweet mornings of spring which I enjoy with my whole heart. I am alone, and feel the charm of existence in this spot, which was created for the bliss of souls like mine. I am so happy, my dear friend, so absorbed in the exquisite sense of mere tranquil existence, that I neglect my talents. I should be incapable of drawing a single stroke at the present moment; and yet I feel that I never was a greater artist than now.
