About This Blog

Taking a break from cross-country skiing in Park City, Utah

I’m Justin. Thanks for visiting.
I started this blog because someone told me to – he wanted to steal some of my travel ideas, and thought others might want to do the same. Thanks to his idea, I’ve learned a ton and met a lot of very cool people (while drawing the occasional insult and diatribe – that’s the Internet for ya!).

Here are a few facts about the way I travel. If they make you nod and smile, you’re in the right place. If you shudder, squirm and think “what is the matter with this fool?” … well, that’s OK, too. Have fun however you roll.

  • I will eat just about anything. That includes rotten shark meat. What have I turned down? Whale.
  • When I travel, I walk/hike/run an average of 8 miles each day.
  • If it starts with the letter Z (like zip line or Zorb), you should do it.
  • My travel tradition – run a 10k in every country I visit.
  • I love to camp or to stay in hotels made out of old airplanes. Or wine barrels.
  • I’m crazy about intercontinental flights, even though I’m 6’2, 205 pounds. So maybe I’m just crazy.
  • People always think I’m Canadian. I’m from Arizona – so what if I like curling and ice hockey?!
  • If I visit your city, please direct me to your best local brewery for stout and/or IPA.

Can’t get enough from my blog? You can find me on Twitter or working on The Born Adventurer blog.

  1. real estate

    how about Australian kangaroo balls key chains? i would class that as “interesting” or odd! Cheers from au 🙂

  2. There’s a chance of it, Melissa. In the summer, obviously! A suggestion for your blog: Michigan is getting a reputation with craft beer people. Travelers like me would love to see some posts about good places to get craft beers, whether it’s a brewery or a taproom with a good selection of regional beers.
