Me, keeping it brief

774883_915098815210595_623898611095466491_oHi, I’m James. I’m 16 years old, and I’ve grown up traveling. United States to Mexico, Spain to Malaysia, over the past 10 years I’ve been to 21 countries in 3 continents.

Now that you’ve found my Internet-Journal, let me tell you why I keep it. I’ve gone from living on a boat in the Caribbean, to staying in tiny apartments in Madrid, from living over mosques blasting prayers 5 times a day in Malaysia, to living in cabins isolated in the middle of the Indonesian Jungle. From the busiest intersection in the world, to an island with some of the best beaches in the world, all of this information can make my head spin. I’m keeping this blog not only to share, but to give myself just a bit more clarity over the years of traveling that I’ve done, while also making sure I don’t forget any of it. I post something new every Monday and/or Friday.
