Born and raised in New York City, I’ve always found pleasure in exploring new things. Whether it was my own backyard in Jamaica, Queens or the cultural hubs throughout the streets of Brooklyn, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed immersing myself into new places and figuring things out. As a child, I was unhindered by fear and constantly propelled by a strong sense of curiosity. As I grew older, I realized that I live in a world full of beauty and adventure, one that extends pass the scenery of the Big Apple. Despite my frequent trips to my parents’ hometown in Kingston, Jamaica, I was still eager to see more of the world. After my first trip abroad in 2009 as an adult, it wasn’t long before I began chasing adventures all over the globe.
SO, WHAT'S A VAGABOND?
Vag-uh-bond (n): a person that wanders from place to place seeking new adventures; a person that eagerly takes time off from their daily routine to discover and experience the world on their own terms.
THE VAGABOND EXPERIENCE
The Vagabond Experience core focus is to promote unconventional and experiential travel around the globe. This means discovering and experiencing the world on your own terms, embracing the unknown, and allowing your travels to obtain a new meaning, one that extends beyond just seeing the sites. It is home to everyone interested in seeing new places and meeting new people. It's for those infatuated with the world we live in and all the beautiful strangers that inhabit it. I’ve trained myself to notice the smells, move with the sounds, and taste the cultural difference within every destination – traits I aspire to pass on to my readers. So let us redefine what it means to travel and be miles away from our daily routine. Cheers to the Vagabonding life!
