When you reach the top sometimes this is what you get to see….

Sure it can be hard walking uphill with all your gear on your back. Yup, sometimes it rains. No, there won’t be a shower and the running water is a stream. But it’s so breathtaking. Here are a few photos from my trip last weekend along the Appalachian Trail.

I'm a professional vagabond. I quit my cubical job in January 2014. Since then, I've hiked the Appalachian Trail, The Camino, and taught English in Vietnam, Turkey, Russia, Spain, Mexico and Peru. I'm exploring the world and you can come too!
