The 10 Most Inspirational Quotes over Photos from my Travels.

Everybody needs a little kick in the mojo sometimes. A jolt of energy to get life shocked back into. A dose of pure inspiration from the voices and the pens of travelers, philosophers, dreamers, and doers. Hell, sometimes you just need someone to slap you and shout, “Get off your ass and chase your dreams fool!”

But, as always, it is up to you to be the one to get the gears turning and the…

Peeking through the window of an old Blacksmith shop in historic Harpers Ferry, WV. As my eyes adjusted through the pane of glass, it immediately focuse on the rusted saw blade, then to the large gears that used to power the machine behind it. It have me slight chills, like the scene out of a horror film, or the dwellings of a ghost. Checked it out with @realpatmcguire.

Weekly Travel Photo: Il Trasimeno Lake in Umbria, Italy.

Long golden grass dancing on a gentle wind, bright yellow and purple wild-flowers peeking out of the hills, dark green-brushed mountains in the distance climbing out of the horizon and surrounding the turquoise lake shimmering under the summer sun. 

This is Il Trasimeno Lake in the region of Umbria in Italy. Here, our blogger group on tour around Italy began a hike with UmbriActionthat would take…

From Umbria to Ponza: 10 days of culture and adventure on a blogger tour of Italy

Oh how the adventures of backpacking can swing dramatically from lows and highs. Trust me, I would know after all, because for a chunk of my time in Italy and across parts of Eastern Europe I was living on bread and ketchup as my budget bottomed out and I was left pondering what to do next. Well, maybe slightly freaking out.

And then, the next thing I knew I was on a blog tour around parts of…

Hello from atop the ruins of St. John’s Episcopal Church. Had a wicked time around Harpers Ferry and the civil war battlefield of Antietam. I love wandering any place of history and never realized how extensive the details of these historic areas are presented and preserved. Will be posting more gnarly pics on Instagram all day!

I am...

Life is short. Time is precious. I know this all too well.
 
My childhood was wrought with pain and destruction. My father was a drunk, my mother did drugs.
 
My teenage years were consumed in a mist.
 
My Mother committed suicide, I found my father dead from a heart attack and held him in my arms with a fools hope he would come back to life.
 
Why do I tell you this?
 
Because I've been to the darkness. And I know nothing good lies there, or lies in standing idle.
 
There is no time to be bored.
 
I tell you this so you know I too have been through shit, and you can claw your way out to a better life.

I live for travel. I live for cultures, I live for adventure. I live for smiles. I live for friendship. I live for cultures unknown. I live for adrenaline.

I live.

Live Gnarly or Merely Exist? That is the Question.
