We all have our own reasons and preferences in our travels. For me, that involves a lot of nature, food, booze, and meeting people around the world. There are 2 ways I have traveled. It can be a carefree, unstructured wondering into the world or a planned out set itineraries travel. Of course, most trips are an actual a medium between those two ends. When I first started to travel, I bought a ticket and booked my first night at my destination and the rest I figured out as as I went. However being a graduate student now and planning for my girlfriend and myself, time and money are much more limited. This is where the second form of travel comes in. A planned out itinerary can save a lot more money, even free with travel hacking tips out there. Furthermore as a graduate student hoping one day to graduate, time is also a limit. So planning how I use my time to travel is very important to be able to accomplish some of our travel goals (especially backpacking trips).
Whether you are a super planner like I can be or just want some info on travel, hiking, and backpacking around the world, I hope to provide information to get you to where you want to go. This includes my pre-trip resources and my trip reports.

Here we are, my name is John and my girlfriend is Meg, with her frown face at me trying to take a picture of her. All pictures on this site of her were taken begrudgingly.
We are graduate students here in southwest Virginia.
