You’re not lost…Welcome!

Hi I’m Ryan, all small business owner from New England, who has a constant need to travel.

Who Am I?

I am a small business owner who has move over 30 times throughout his life. As the years have gone past, my family has grown, as well as my need to put down some roots. Without constantly being able to move I now focus my energy on trips around the world. I started this blog quite a few years ago and haven’t been great on keeping it up, but, as the trips continue to pour in, my memories of some of the details begin to fade.

I hope to keep better track of my future trips and try to recall and piece together, from photos, some of my trips from the past.

How'd I Get Here?

The last few generations of my family have both been huge travelers and thankfully I was able to go along on the ride a few times.

For awhile, I was grinding away in the corporate world, trying to climb up the ladder, one rung at a time. I did find success and there are certain aspects that I certainly miss today, but, eventually I decided that this was not what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.  So I decided to give up a promising career in marketing to start up my own business with the hope that it would allow me to give me the flexibility and freedom to start a family the way I wanted to and to have a little more flexibility with travel.

Who Do I Drag Along?

Luckily for me, my wife, Lua, has grown to enjoy my passion for travel.

She’s also a ton of fun to travel with as she is so much more social than I am. She has opened up so many new opportunities for me to have new, fun experiences that I would have normally tried to avoid

I’m fairly certain my wife thinks I am a little nuts, if I am not currently on a trips I seem to be planning another one…or three. She seems to be ok with my shenanigans though and has even warmed up to a few of them.

Now Traveling With Three More

Then came the three girls.

We really aren’t to sure where they came from as my wife is Mexican and It’s a bit comical as my girls have practically every combination of hair, eye, and skin color there is. My oldest with red hair, fair complexion and blue eyes. Middle with brown almost auburn hair, darker complexion and brown eyes. The youngest with blonde hair, between the two with complexion and blue eyes again.

They have turned into fantastic little travelers as we have had them on planes to Key West and Mexico since their earliest days. Now that they have gotten a little older, we are starting to bring them on bigger trips and they are definitely adding a whole new facet to international travel. There is certainly excitement in sharing new places and culture with them. Plus kids are just awesome and can even make some of the most mundane things wonderful.
