Thanks for looking! I'm David, and this is my travel blog. I'm an American who has been traveling the world full time for 8 years now.
I first fell in love with travel on a solo road trip across Iceland in 2016. My budget was small, so I slept in the back of a rental car for 1 month while I drove 7,000 kilometers around the country, filming all of the scenic places in Iceland. One of my first videos racked up a few million views and was featured on international TV by BBC Travel.
Since then I've solo traveled to many developing countries, including almost every country in Asia, Central America, and the Middle East.
It hasn't always been easy, but over the years I've been blessed with some amazing experiences like sleeping in jungle treehouses in Bali, trekking to Mount Everest Base Camp in the Himalayas, going on Komodo dragon safaris in Indonesia, dining on tarantulas and scorpions in Cambodia, riding a camel to the Great Pyramids of Giza in Egypt, skydiving in Oahu Hawaii, touring medieval Samurai castles in Japan, and visiting some timeless world monuments like the Taj Mahal, Tikal, Machu Picchu, Hagia Sophia, Angkor Wat, and Petra.
In 2018, I traveled to 24 countries in one year, which is a personal record so far! I did this on a pretty modest budget and rarely spent more than $30/day on my travels, including accommodation and food.
I haven't been everywhere, but it's on my list! I'm always looking for new adventures.
I hope my travel blog can help and inspire you in your own journeys as well!
