Hello, I’m Jordan, and I’m a twenty-something explorer, traveler, photographer, videographer, Youtuber, reader, writer, list maker, stock trader and much more!

Growing up, I read endless books about faraway places, and always dreamed of visiting them myself.

By now, I’ve had a lot of experiences, many of them inspired by the books that I read. I left university a few years ago to go on a 700 mile walking road trip, worked at more than a few coffee shops, moved to Florida, and amassed a collection of over 7,000 books.

In 2014, I had an awakening of sorts, and decided that I wanted to work toward achieving my dreams. I had slaved away at a difficult job for years, and even though I had received promotions within the company, my life felt hollow. Although there have been a few delays along the way (all of them great and part of my adventure), I am now looking forward to seeing more of the world, discovering new things, immersing myself in other cultures, and speaking words in other languages.

I hope that you enjoy reading about my adventures!

  1. Hello Jordan, just saw a few of your YouTube vlogs and this website. Thanks for posting your experiences. It gives all of us wannabe travelers hope. I particularly like your nuts and bolts detail on the cost of different places because that’s what gives alot of us pause. You are also showing that it can be done, kudos to you. Few people have the nerve and courage to follow their dreams at such a young age. Keep it coming. Best wishes.


  2. Jordan, just want to leave a message here and say you are a true inspiration. Someday I wish to leave my possession behind and travel fulltime too. Let me know next time if you are in Singapore! Let’s grab some coffee together. 🙂
