A Brief Life in China

After a year’s sentence teaching English to the little Chinese terrors, we seized the opportunity to explore the rising dragon. Teaching English to spoiled Chinese kids was an experience I won’t repeat, but after all the highs and lows, at least I can bring back the photos and tell some stories of my time there.

This was my first trip abroad as a “big kid,” right after finishing high school. My good pal Jake and I took to the road as a couple fairly clueless boys for some fun wherever we could find it. Later on his mom and brother joined us for some more carefree traveling.



Ecuador (Photos)

Ecuador is a stunningly diverse country. From the Galapagos Islands to the Pacific Coast, from the cordillera of the Andes to the mysterious and remote Amazon jungles, there’s a lot to see and do. This trip was my first experience with voluntourism.

A group of us from university associated through Engineers Without Borders to bring clean drinking water to an Andean village for the first time. This was no rag-tag operation though. We spent the year prior to the project planning and designing the system, and 2 weeks of hard labor to pull the project off. There were loads of challenges like working at high altitude, and trying to find building materials in a developing country, but it was well-worth the effort. Turning on that tap for the first time and seeing that we could finally make a difference in these good people’s lives was an amazing moment.

Indonesia (Photos)

One of the biggest and culturally/biologically diverse countries on the planet, Indonesia deserves so much more than the standard 60 day tourist visa. Befriending a local to sponsor a longer stay is a must!

What you’ve done becomes the judge of what you’re going to do – especially in other people’s minds. When you’re traveling, you are what you are right there and then. People don’t have your past to hold against you. No yesterdays on the road.
