“I love people who make me laugh. I honestly think it’s the thing I like most, to laugh. It cures a multitude of ills. It’s probably the most important thing in a person.”

Audrey Hepburn

I am an American 28 year old woman who recently quit her job to start backpacking all over the world.

I have always been very career minded, so when I decided to leave a senior position at a Fortune 500 company even I was surprised with myself. My love for traveling really blossomed a little over two years ago when I visited Thailand on a 10-day vacation. The entire experience was otherworldly and there hasn’t been a single day since that trip that I have not dreamed about doing what I am now doing.

I LOVE live comedy, goofy people, yoga and sports, so this blog will be somewhat centered around how I find these things everywhere I go. And I’ll make sure to share some funny stories along the way.

“If you’re going to try, go all the way. Otherwise, don’t even start. This could mean losing girlfriends, wives, relatives and maybe even your mind. It could mean not eating for three or four days. It could mean freezing on a park bench. It could mean jail. It could mean derision. It could mean mockery–isolation. Isolation is the gift. All the others are a test of your endurance, of how much you really want to do it.

And, you’ll do it, despite rejection and the worst odds. And it will be better than anything else you can imagine.

If you’re going to try, go all the way. There is no other feeling like that. You will be alone with the gods, and the nights will flame with fire. You will ride life straight to perfect laughter. It’s the only good fight there is.”

Charles Bukowski
