In 1999, with Y2K approaching, I decided quit my job at American Airlines, grab a backpack, and head out to see and enjoy the world...
I traveled for 16 months through 21 countries in Europe and South America in 1999 and 2000. Along the way I actually got a life...and a future wife! This is my story, told via daily journals and many photos...ENJOY!
July 5, 2002 Update
I am now a married man working on settling with the "Wifey Thing" in Georgetown, Texas...I will continue to travel at times...but for now I've got a home base.
