In the summer of 2009, after leaving my 9-to-5 office job, I set off on a 4-month cross-country journey around the U.S. in my conversion van. Most of the trip was solo, but friends joined me in various places. I did a lot of couchsurfing and sleeping in the van. I passed through 46 states and saw everything from the big urban cities to rural farmland to scenic national parks to quaint small towns.
I’m now settled in Chicago, but the blog continues. I’ll be revisiting some of my more memorable experiences and posting all-new photos. Plus, I’m continuing to take weekend trips here and there. Some places I haven’t seen yet that are on my wishlist: St. Louis, Columbus, Indianapolis, and the Dakotas.
So there will be plenty more travel stories to come. Stay tuned!
