Why I'm Social Network Surfing Around The World

For as long as I can remember, my dream has been to travel the world. And also for as long as I can remember, society has told me that uprooting my life to do so would stray me from the path of success. And so I settled for the responsible path to adulthood: attend a good college, get a decently paying full-time job, and build a stable, comfortable life.

Fast forward three years post-college, and I’ve had it with this path. I quit. I left my corporate job in New York City, put my belongings in storage, and leapt into the world with nothing but a carry-on and my integrity. I am doing exactly what I want to do: circumnavigating the globe by couch surfing through my social network to see how far human connection can take me.

Below, you will find a map of my journey and stories of where I've been so far and what I've learned. Read more about my project here.
