What is your favorite travel destination? Why?

Switzerland is my favorite place in the world! It is a hiker’s paradise and I love climbing mountains, plus everywhere looks like a greenscreen backdrop, and the water INSANE!

How many times have you missed a flight?

Only once surprisingly! Although I have had to run to make my flight on almost every trip.

When do you start packing for a trip?

Every time I have an upcoming trip I tell myself I am going to be proactive and pack ahead of time, but honestly that’s too much pressure. I find myself ALWAYS waiting until the day or night before the flight and just grabbing whatever I can. It makes you really prioritize what you need and what you don’t.

Where are you going to next?

South America is in the works right now, and I’m planning on leaving as soon as COVID restrictions allow.

What is your biggest fear?

Snakes! I will NEVER mess with snakes, and when I see them I am out of there ASAP Rocky.

What is your favorite animal?

My favorite animal is an Orca, and I have YET to see one in the wild, but it’s HIGH on the list.

What’s up! My name is Joe and this is my travel blog where I share all the experiences that have made me a better traveler, and ideas to inspire your next adventure.

I am 25 years old and I’ve been to 21 countries, 5 continents, and counting! I am from the USA, born and raised in Colorado’s Rocky Mountains. Hawai’i has been my home base since 2014 where I work as a marine biologist, freelance writer, and the countless random gigs. I have a true passion for traveling, and I never want to stop exploring the world.

My favorite aspect of travelling is meeting people from around the world, sharing experiences, and building new ones together. Shoutout to all the amazing friends and strangers I have met along my way, and welcome to my blog. I created the impulsive traveler blog because I began to realize I often travel in a very different way than most people. I am the epitome of an IMPULSIVE TRAVELER.

Instead of intensive planning years in advance I’d rather buy a last minute ticket across the ocean and see what happens. People have called my methods crazy, insane, ridiculous, but it always gets me where I want to be. I am proof that travelling on the whim does not have to mean you are unprepared, and being flexible is completely necessary travelling abroad.

Impulsive decisions often make the best memories.

The world of travel blogging is a brand new endeavor for me, and I am excited to see where I can take it. I have years of stories I intend to share with as many people possible. I am not a professional blogger, but I make up for it with authentically unique travel stories and guides. I also think that many influencer blogs fail to show the unattractive sides of travel, whereas I intend to reveal the hard decisions that have to be made behind the scenes in this lifestyle.

Since I started travelling I have ziplined in Costa Rica, trekked with Mountain Gorillas in Rwanda, and solo travelled to China. I am extremely interested in sustainable travel, conservation, photography, and chasing the world’s greatest views. Anyone who has met me can also tell you I love to party, and it seems to find me anywhere in the world. As my platform matures I hope it will inspire others who want to travel, but aren’t sure how to take the first leap. I want my photos, stories, and guides to be the blueprint for the impulsive way of travel. Get out, and see the world! It will amaze you.

I detail the life of a backpacker, exploring on a budget, and advice for where-to-next. I can’t wait for you to follow along for the journey of a lifetime and my travel bucket list.
