Well, I will try to make this short but informative. I’m originally from MN but reside in San Antonio now.

Ideally, I would love to set sail on a lifetime voyage to sail the world and document every part of it for future generations to see. I want to explore the world and bring you along as a reader and viewer.

I’d instead dedicate my time to planning a world tour. That’s the main focus for the blog.
I’m also a diabetic and have been for only several years. So, this blog is also about documenting how I will not let this disease control my life. Among the listed disabilities in another post, diabetes seems to control much of my life. However, I will not succumb to diabetes
