2022 Solo Summer

Not designed for mobile viewing. It's prettiest on a computer!


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!
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.
