The adventure begins

“We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us.”

From the late 17th century through the mid-19th century, it was common for young men from the English gentry to embark on their “Grand Tour.” They journeyed through Central and Southern Europe as part of an educational and cultural rite of passage.

I’m not “young,” male, English nor a member of the landed gentry, but I’m taking this concept and expanding the aperture.

Thus, My Grand Adventure is born. For the next two years, I’ll be experiencing, exploring, engaging and escaping the world as part of a global grand adventure.

Though my itinerary is continuously influx some of my expected adventure include:

  • Exploring Mayan ruins in Central America
  • Ringing in the New Year in Dubai
  • Cruising the Egyptian Nile
  • Tracking gorillas in Rwanda
  • Retracing family roots in Central Europe
  • Relaxing in the Maldives
  • Hiking in New Zealand

Please join me on the adventure of a lifetime!
