Recording my travel adventures has been something I have been interested in since my first time abroad in 2013. In 2014, I came up with the name Outsidevibes and it became clear this would be the website and brand that I had dreamed about.
The first draft of Outsidevibes was definitely a learning experience for me and leaving to Central America in 2014, I focused more on traveling than contributing to the website. In 2015 when an injury abroad sent me back home, Outsidevibes was still in its design phase.
Spending most of 2015 and 2016 at home healing made me realize how important this dream of Outsidevibes was to me. Prior to traveling again in 2017, I spent 3 weeks redesigning Outsidevibes, with a new found passion. My girlfriend and I traveled around the South Pacific and I once again found it difficult to balance my dream with my passion, but I was determined to not give up. Unfortunately after 8 months of travel and contributing to Outsidevibes, a motorcycle accident sent my girlfriend and I back home from Thailand, putting Outsidevibes on hold. Now a year after the accident I am back on the road ready to travel while growing Outsidevibes!
