Hello World!

Today I officially launched my blog! While I fully expect zero people to read this, I'm a big fan of putting one's thoughts down on paper. I've been on the road for 140 days, and currently am in Laos. So without further adieu, here's a little bit about me:

I'm Derek. I'm 31, no kids, no pets. Things I love include: anything outdoors, running, diving, surfing, fishing, and running. A few months ago I decided to quit my job, sell most of my stuff, pack the rest in storage, and set off for some adventure! I'm originally from Florida, USA.

I've had some simply amazing experiences so far and hopefully will be recounting them as well as having even more in the months to come.

So, nice to meet ya!
