I was 16 when I decided that I wanted to become a travel blogger.  I then took it a step further, and wrote a list of things I want to do in my lifetime.  That is what this blog is about.

When I was 19 I earned the nickname “Inverted Turtle” from my Dad on a backpacking trip through the 100 mile wilderness of the Appalachian trail, where I was carrying over half my body weight in my pack.  My Dad thought it was funny that I had a hard time standing up with my pack on and remarked “you’re like a turtle on it’s back.”  Whether I liked it or not, the name stuck.

Everyone talks about how turtles always have their homes with them, so no matter where they are they’re home.  My goals is to be like a turtle, no matter where I am, I’m home.
