Hi! My name is Tom. I was born and raised in Columbus, Ohio (USA). I’ve had this crazy idea of spending a year traveling around the world. In the summer of 2011, I began to seriously plan and commit myself to this dream. In June of 2012, I quit my job, sold my house and got rid of almost all my stuff. I packed a backpack, and began a life of travel. I’m currently unemployed and homeless, traveling around this amazing rock we call Earth. This is my blog about that journey.
