Who I am

Backpacking in Greece Corfu Island

Day 1 of 55 in Greece (Corfu Island)

My name is Anthony Perez. I am a 28 years young nomadic Latino from New Jersey. Calling North Jersey and South Carolina my physical home, I live wherever I rest my head. Growing up, I have had the privilege of traveling with my family back and forth to Puerto Rico, Virginia and Florida. My grandmother being a travel agent and a travel lover herself, inspired me to have the love for travel myself. In my final years of college, travel has become more and more of a priority to me as my life seemed to be more liberated without the pressures of class exams and homework.

Since the day I walked across that stage with my bachelors degree in Web Design, I had traveled to new destinations every year. And in the process, I realized that having a routine job was not going to help cater to my wanderlust. Reaching world travel goals has not been easy though. I’ve lived through divorced parents, frequent unemployment, and long term depression. After years of saving, being closer with my family than ever, and fighting those dark days of depression, I had finally reached happiness with the world and myself. After much hard working two jobs, paying off debt, and saving strategically, I finally set off for my first extended trip in Feb. 2016 to Europe for 6 whole months. After that voyage, I learned, that this lifestyle was truly for me. If there is a will, there is a way. You want it, fight for it, and you will certainly have it.

This planet was made to be discovered over and over again by everyone. This page demonstrates how I evolved from a vacationer to a dedicated traveler and hopefully inspire you to get up, work your ass off, and reward yourself to discover new lifestyles and cultures. Travel not only makes you appreciate life but allows you to have a first hand perspective on how real life is around the globe. In the process, discover yourself to the core. Life is short and the world is large. Get out there and live life, don’t let life live you!

Once the traveling begins, the voyage never ends
