dispatches from the road


In March of 2002, I quit my job, sold all my stuff, terminated my lease, moved out of my apartment, and flew to Portugal on a one-way ticket. With a backpack and some good walking shoes, I've set off to spend the next few years of my life exploring the globe. This website contains dispatches from my travels abroad.


Latest dispatch:
Brian was last spotted in Newbury Park (California), USA on August 25th, 2003.

(Previous update ended on August 19th, 2003.)

Plans for the immediate future:
All good things must come to an end, and so has my journey of a lifetime. My final entry serves as an epilogue of sorts. Thanks for following along!
