I’m a black man from Clayton County, Georgia that cannot sit still. I never bought into the ‘American Dream’ of working hard until you get old, just to start enjoying life after retirement. As a Black American, my chances of growing old with a pile of cash to run the world with are statistically pretty slim. So I took the road less travelled and started enjoying my life now.
My first plane trip nine years ago from Atlanta to New York opened up the world to me, now I’m 11 countries in with no plans on stopping. So this is the world through my eyes. I quit my job, sold most of my possessions, and moved with my wife to Chiang Mai, Thailand where we reside now. Most called me brave for taking that leap, but the fear of living a typical life was a lot stronger than my fear of the unknown so here we are. I love the US (gotta throw that in just in case Uncle Sam is watching) but the world is too big to be confined to those invisible American borders. So I’m going to travel until I can’t or don’t want to anymore.
So why should you care? Well for one part of my journey is to inspire other men of color to break away from the life we are expected to live and make the life you dreamed of living. But don’t expect me to blow smoke and sell you dreams. I’m providing practical information and useful resources to get you started if you so desire. Join me on my journey.
