Hello world!

WordPress picked the title for this post and I had to chuckle to myself. After all, considering the purpose of this blog, it seems quite appropriate. For those who don’t know, developers will often use the phrase “Hello, world!” when they first start creating software or websites as a way to test and make sure everything is working properly before they continue. As a traveling developer who decided to quit his job and travel the world for an undetermined amount of time, this title is absolutely perfect to me. I can’t wait to get out and experience the world the only way I truly feel like I would enjoy it.

I've always had the traveling itch, I just never knew how to scratch it. Finally, in March of 2015, I decided to take the plunge. This blog will chronicle my adventures and misadventures as I journey around the world.
