Glad to have you along my adventures – traveling Europe and keeping my first blog! Resting on my bookshelf are tattered handwritten journals from my previous trips. Writing and analysis are important aspects of traveling, and in the past I’ve always kept my thoughts tucked away in these leather-bound notebooks.

Since January 2013 I’ve chronicled my seven months in Europe online at The Art of Adventure. I wanted to start a travel blog to share my passion for travel and new experiences with anyone who wants to read. So really this is for you, Mom…Dad…Bueller. Bueller?

That “Bueller” reference is from the 1986 film Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. One of my favorite parts is when Ferris leans to his friend Cameron and says,

“The question isn’t WHAT are we going to do…the question is what AREN’T we going to do?”

That is exactly what adventure is all about.
