My passions feature travel, with an emphasis on world history, as well as learning and understanding other cultures. Travel opens your eyes, it makes an incredibly more well-rounded human being. Often things that news media tell us are not really the same as what you see with your own eyes – seeing the world for yourself will significantly improve your vision and your grip on reality. World travel teaches you economy, politics, history, geography, and sociology in an intense, hands-on way no class will. As of October 2016, I’ve visited 5 continents, 67 countries, and ~ 530 cities.
