All is Well That Ends Well (Part 2) (My Experience in Somalia, Ethiopia, and Djibouti)

December 22, 2013

Courtesy of Eric Hill Everything with Diboutian border guard went just like he had promised other than a subtle request for some money. Once I got into Somaliland though, things got complicated again. My main purpose for taking photos is to capture the beautiful people and beautiful things, but obviously in this region, many of […]

All is Well That Ends Well (Part 1) (My experience in Somalia, Ethiopia and Djibouti)

December 21, 2013

Wow! After the ease of the European transit system the last two weeks, getting around Northern Africa seemed rough! Luckily the experiences between travel woes made everything worth it. My first country was Ethiopia. After a two-day delay due to some oversold flights (story of my life) I finally made it to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. […]

Motorcycles and Caribbean Villages (Mexico, Barbados, Guyana, Suriname)

Motorcycles and Caribbean Villages (Mexico, Barbados, Guyana, Suriname)

November 25, 2013

Though most of this leg was culturally rich, Mexico was just for fun. I figured since I’ve been to Mexico so many times before, I was ok with just having a good time with some friends. Six guys and I started in LA and rode the entire length of Baja California, Mexico on motorcycles. This […]

Colombia

Colombia

October 19, 2013

Colombia offered my favorite experience with an NGO so far. I got to highlight and help out La Ciudad de Dios in Villa de Leyva, Columbia; part of the Santa Teresa de Ávila Foundation, and play with some pretty cute little kids there. It had to be my favorite so far because sadness didn’t seem […]

Courtesy of Eric HIll After finally getting to make the first circle around the world, I went nearly halfway around again a few days later when I went to Bulgaria. After spending a few incredible days driving through the unbelievable landscapes, meeting some cool people and getting rejected at the orphanage because of the camera; […]

From East to East, My First Trip Around the Globe

September 2, 2013

Courtesy of Eric Hill In all the traveling I’ve done, I have never been able to check off the goal to circle the globe, until now. Visiting the war zone in Syria a couple months ago was the furthest East I had ever been. Stopping in the capital city in Malaysia last year was the […]

Starting from Scratch in Mongolia

Starting from Scratch in Mongolia

August 23, 2013

Courtesy of Eric Hill Originally, my youngest brother Brett was supposed to come with me as well. But due to the mixed up schedule and lost bags on the Trans Siberian Railroad, we got delayed enough that I had to fly him home directly from Russia and travel to Mongolia alone. He was my cameraman, […]

False Start

False Start

August 19, 2013

Courtesy of Eric Hill August 19th, 2013 marks six months since the start of The Global Odyssey. But it wasn’t the original plan to have the official start date February 19th. Originally the project was supposed to start September 10th, 2012, and it did… sort of. It was the theft of the most valuable thing […]

Riding Russia’s Iron Horse

August 12, 2013

Courtesy of Eric Hill The early light of the Siberian sky lit the inside of the modified shipping container where we slept through the little cutout windows. When I opened my eyes, it took me a second to remember where I was. “Are you awake?” I croaked to my brother, Brett, on the bunk above […]
