Welcome to Earth to Keir

Every blog has to have a start and here is the start of this one.

At the end of December 2014 I am quitting my job. I’m selling everything I own and starting a journey around the world. Long term travel has always been one of my dreams. I am now in a position where I can make this dream a reality. For years I have had reasons for not traveling. I finally realized my reasons were just excuses.

This is the start of the story of my life. That thought has paralyzed me from the start of this blog. There is so much leading up to this point that I feel I am leaving out a lot of the story. If I don’t start now, then there is no story.

Beginnings are also the end of something. The start of this trip marks the end of my time in Chicago. I am having real difficulty with leaving. I have made great friends and accomplished crazy things. Beyond any of my dreams. Now its time to dream again.
