First off, let me thank everyone for coming to my blog!
Let me first start by introducing myself. My name is Brent. I was born in the beautiful state of cheese, Wisconsin. Shoot, if I remember right, I was born with cheese in my mouth. Growing up in Wisconsin, I had always loved being outdoors and exploring! At a very young age, we moved to Florida! I spent most of my teenage years running the beaches and looking like a beach bum.
When I was in High School, I decided I needed a change. I always loved Florida, but it was never the state for me. I usually found myself in more trouble than good. I found myself joining the military to continue with my story, where I spent almost six full years.
During my time in the military, I was stationed in 4 different places ranging from Georgia, Tennessee, Colorado, and even over the pound to Afghanistan. Being in the military sparked my interest in traveling. I have always had an inch to move and find somewhere new to check out and wander. I was never really good at taking pictures of it, though!
Once I got out of the military, I didn't know where I wanted to go. I stayed in Colorado for a few weeks but ended up moving because I was ready for a change. I headed back for Wisconsin, where I found my kick for the beautiful views of the City side of things, and I met a friend who was leaving for Europe to go backpacking, and she re-sparked that itch to start backpacking again. After that day, I started planning Italy. I still haven't made it to Italy. Instead, I moved right back to Florida about six months after living in Wisconsin.
Once back in Florida, I found myself partying and living it up maybe a little more than I should have been, but the memories will forever be everlasting. Over the past three or so years of living in Florida, I found myself arrested more times than I'd like to admit, I got in more car accidents than I'd like to admit, and just in the last year, I almost killed myself twice. You would think maybe it's time to make a change.
Here is the start of my change and why I have a goal to see all seven wonders in the world. During my time of rebellion and not giving a fuck about the people I hurt or the people around me. I found myself in Mexico. Once by myself, and I loved it. The second time I went was with an excellent friend of mine. We went and saw more than just Cancun. I saw my first seven wonders, and this trip solidified my want to travel more of this world.
As of December 1st, I sold all my belongings, my best friend picked my dog up, and my best friend that came with me to Mexico picked my cat up. One of the hardest things to do about this whole trip was saying goodbye to my Bubbas. But my journey then started on December 4th, 2020.
Over the next year, you can expect from this blog my travels around the world. My goal is all seven wonders in a year. I want to do this all on a budget I am not working on. I plan to post three times a week. One blog and two videos a week on YouTube. So make sure you check my YouTube page out for more videos!
Thank you all for taking the time out of your day to read my blog. Feel free to message me on Instagram. If you ever have a problem in your day and need to talk to someone, my line is always open. I know how dark some days can be, and just because you are struggling does not mean you have to struggle alone. Remember to love everyone, you lay your eyes on and treat everyone with the same respect you would like to receive. Just because someone was rude to you does not mean you should be rude in return, bless them with kindness.
