What’s Up World!?
I’ve started this blog to share my experiences with family, friends and you.
My wife and I have done a lot of traveling over the last 10 years and continue to do so.
It’s now high time that we start putting it all together for ourselves, our family and friends to enjoy and share.
I want something that I can always go back to look and reflect on, something for my family to use to keep up with as well.
It’s been a lot of fun and I want to share with everybody out there in hopes to inspire you to follow your dreams of travel, adventure and life, or whatever you passions may be.
A lot of people take time and life for granted. DO NOT DO THAT! Appreciate every moment and day that you have, life is fragile.
Remember that and live by it.
Life is short. It goes by in the blink of an eye. Leave the Bad Behind You and Take the Good.
We Have a Dog!
And, he can fly!
He is really the best dog in the world. I miss him so much when we are traveling.
I also don’t like leaving him at the kennel and being away from him for long stretches.
He is a fast, fun, rowdy, rambunctious, restless dude and he is really my best friend.
Some of his favorite sports are Flicker Ball, Frisbee and Body Boarding.
He’s super intelligent and knows a lot of tricks. Some of which he taught himself! We always spoil him rotten during Christmas time and like buying him souvenirs on our travels.
What’s the Story Morning Glory?
I’ve started writing about our most recent travels in 2011.
Once caught up and complete I will begin to work backwards in time to the beginning of it all.
In between the going back in time I will be writing about our current travel and adventures.
It’s a big project and one I don’t think will ever be complete as long we continue to travel and live our dreams.
You Can Learn Too!
I’m also fond of sharing information and what knowledge I have.
I want and am eager to inspire, teach and train other future travel bloggers (or any blogger for that matter) out there who are passionate about their travels.
There will be tutorials on everything from how to start your own blog, editing photos and video, writing eBooks and everything else that comes along with owning and operating your own travel blog.
Live the Life that YOU Want
Not what other people want.
You are going to encounter a lot of nasty people in your lifetime. People who will laugh at you, your ideas, and your dreams. People who will hate you for doing things that you love. People who are jealous of you and people who will lie about you.
Stay away from those people, they are not your friends and are Cancer to Your Soul.
Don’t live by other peoples Dogma. Which is living by other peoples thoughts or beliefs.
Jobs said it Best
Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma—which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice.”
This is something that I have always believed in, even before I knew who Steve Jobs was.

9 to 5 Life is Not for Me
It never has been and it never will be. I find it boring, unchallenging and a good way to grind your life away into a bowl full of misery. But, if it’s your cup a tea that cool too. I totally respect that.
Everybody is different.
I don’t fit in with the regular 9 to 5 mold. I never have and I never will. I have been working hard on forging my own path through life doing what I want to do and doing what my wife wants to do.
Which is living out our Passions.
The goal is to make enough money to support myself, my wife and my family. With this we can continue to live the life that we want, traveling, flying, jumping and being with family and friends.
It’s not all about money, it’s about living the life we want and being free and being with family.
It’s your time, it’s your life, it’s your playground.
