Where would you go if you had eight months to travel solo? Which two continents and six countries would you visit? How would you get there? Where would you stay? What experiences would you seek out? How would you be transformed?
In early 2015 I wrote an essay for a chance to win the Bonderman Fellowship, granting the fellow $20,000 to travel solo for eight months continuously. Within a year I left on transformative trip, changing my worldview through experience, becoming someone I never thought I could be. From 2016 - 2017 I experienced the countries of India, Nepal, Myanmar, Thailand, Vietnam, Hong Kong, China, Tibet, Japan, Mongolia, Russia, Czech Republic, France, Belgium, and Ireland.
