About

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. Hey hello Jordan. I am from 🇮🇳 and a die hard fan of yours. Love your videos on YouTube but dissatisfied with your visit to India. You didn’t visited to the peak locations of India like Mumbai,Chennai,Bangalore,Kolkata,Varanasi,ahmedabad,Amritsar and a lot more… AND in Delhi you didn’t visited the main attractions like rail museum,The Lutyens Delhi,akshardham temple and lotus temple.I AM REALLY DISAPPOINTED WITH THE HARASSMENT THAT HAPPENED WITH YOU BUT THE GANG THAT HARRASES FOREIGNERS IN DELHI IS CAUGHT BY THE SECRET SERVICES. While travelling in India please carry a strong pepper spray with you And please revisit India’s prime locations and enjoy a lot.

    I’m a great fan of Yours. Happy to see you in my country 🇵🇰. The very thing I love about you is the Passion and dedication of yours towards Traveling and Exploring Nature. That inspires me alot when you talk about to love the mother nature. Felt sorry what happened in India but Im sure that doesn’t demote your love to explore the world.

    Hoping to see more of you in the upcoming years.

  6. Hey this is Aditya from North Eastern India. I love seeing Ur travel videos especially of Pakistan. The way you presented Pakistan and its people was tremendous. I was very sad and embarrassed when I came to know your scary experience in India. Couldn’t feel more shame than ever too call myself Indian. Wish we could do something about those hooligans who caused discomfort to you during your trip. I request you not to hold negative thought about us as a whole as all of us are not the same. Even India is very beautiful just like Pakistan ,it’s just some bad people who are spoiling our image in this world. I can assure you that it’s going to be better in coming days because the present government is working really hard to improve the environment especially for foreign tourists. Hope you get this message and forgive us as a whole and give another chance. I will also try to spread Ur bad experience so that the government can take necessary action against bad people like them.

    1. Hi there. Aditya agarwalla here from Assam,India. Visiting Pakistan is my ultimate dream. I love to see Pakistan in media and other possible channels. My grandfather came from Lahore a month before Independence . Since then no one from our family has been there. I don’t know how possibly I can get there since I live in far Eastern part of India. Reply me if you can prepare an itinerary for me of a safe tour. I love mountains and yeah your cities as well.

  9. Pakistan is very good place for tourists. I would suggest you to visit Pakistan once and give your honest feedback. In one of your Egyptian videos you admitted that media portraits the image of some place very differently, hope you will come to Pak 😉

  13. 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.
