About Me: I travel far too often and far too irresponsibly to be considered intelligent or even sane. I spend about half the year away from home, which is in Grapevine, Texas about 3 minutes from the terminal at DFW airport. I'm a travel writer, a chef, and a Thai massage therapist. I am gay, but the focus of my travel tends to be adventure and the outdoors, rather than urban gay-mecca destinations. If you ever need a travel partner insane enough to do something that most experienced travellers would report you to the authorities for, hit me up! I have special travel perks and can get just about anywere on the planet within 2 days for almost free...
