Today marks One-Year that I’ve been homeless. One-Year without possessions to tie me down. One-Year living on the road and water. When I set out on that day (Canada to Key West), I had no idea what to expect. I could not have dreamed of everything I’ve seen, the hospitality that has been extended to me and the wonderful people I have met along the way. The sights and experiences have been beyond expectations. Sure, there have been some tough days and challenges, but the experiences┬áthat follow have made the low points well worth the trouble.

The one thing that stand out most over this past year are the people I’ve met. Some I only knew through social media and some I’ve never knew before, but in every case, the people I meet have been amazing to me. Over and over these people prove the news to be wrong. The world is full of good, no – great people. People that open up their homes and hearts and welcome in a stranger, but it doesn’t end there. Not only am i welcomed in, but then I am treated to hospitality that you can’t even find at the most luxurious of resorts.

I am thankful for this opportunity and I can’t wait to see what one more year on the road brings. I am hoping that Europe is in my future as I am ready to expand my horizons to foreign lands. I just have to figure out how to get across the big blue pond on a shoestring budget. Anyone need a deckhand?
