Hi! Thanks for stopping by. I’m Mike and this is my blog. I started blogging soon after I accepted a job to teach overseas with the goal of following my adventures. I spent my first 5 years after college in New Jersey as an elementary teacher, special ed teacher and fencing coach. I’ve been fortunate enough to take many trips and love to detail my journeys with photographs.
I arrived in Seoul, South Korea on August 2013 and started teaching the next day! After only a few weeks it turned out my school was actually embezzling the tuition money so our paychecks stopped coming and things got a little crazy. I was on the other side of the world in a foreign country, quit and somehow found an amazing new job.
Shortly after I discovered Seoul Hiking Group and explored every nook and cranny of South Korea! The next 3 years took me on dozens of adventures to popular destinations in Thailand, The Philippines and Vietnam. I swung through Taiwan twice and spent 3 weeks in Indonesia but in a few short months I’ll be leaving Korea.
I don’t know exactly where I’m going next but it’ll definitely be an adventure! In March 2017 I’ll be heading to India and driving 3000km across the country in a glorified lawnmower. Follow me this spring as I traverse the rest of Asia and bounce around the rest of this beautiful world.
If you’re interested in working with me please fill out a contact form and I’ll get back to you as soon as I have internet!
