The idea for this trip was not very profound, I just felt driven to leave North Carolina and have some adventures for the summer! While not particularly profound, this trip is still a really big deal for me because it marks the first trip entirely planned by yours truly. Of course I had help along the way and I'm staying with friends and family here and there, but the only constants will be me and the things on my back. This trip marks a lot of firsts: First solo travel outside the US, first workaway, hopefully first glacier crossing, and more to be seen!
I leave North Carolina for Alabama on May 8th and return from Germany on August 17th, and I hope to make the most of every day I spend out there.
Thanks are in order to Daniel for spotting me after my trip fund was gutted by an expensive van repair. Thanks Daniel, if it weren't for you I wouldn't have been able to pull off this trip!
P.S. The updates will be a bit funky for this trip. I'll only have my own computer while I'm in Campo Grande, and I may have access to one while in Nesbyen. That means I'll only be able to write new posts in Campo Grande and Nesbyen, then after that I'll have to write them up after I return to the states! If you want to check up on how the trip is going, I'll still have my phone, so pop over to my contact page and shoot me a message :)
