Fortune favors the bold. So I'm ditching my dental benefits to embark on a worldwide adventure. Come join me as I journey across the earth. I might start in Hawaii, or Central America, or Spain. Who knows where I'll end up?

I've assembled a slideshow of the best photos from the last 6 weeks, taken in Egypt and Israel. Enjoy!
I read a lot about the world. Study it. Consume news about it.
Now its time to live it firsthand.
Mission: Two years of criss-crossing the globe, an average of one month per country.
Ever heard of the British concept of a "gap year?" It's a year immersed in travel for the sake of personal growth. England's Prince Harry, for example, spent his gap year volunteering at a zoo in Australia and building health clinics in Lesotho, Africa. The concept hasn't caught on in the U.S., where most people think a "gap year" means goofing around. Many Americans inaccurately refer to it as "taking time off." It's the opposite. It's self-directed experiential education, with a global edge. I call it, "time on!"
