Thanks, for popping in to my little fragment of the internet. My name is Greg, and like you, I'm just trying to figure stuff out.
I travel, I write, I tend bar, and I don't have Anthony Bourdains backing behind me.
My abiding principle is that I cannot change the world, but I can at least help one tiny part of it. And so can you.
I can tell you that I started this blog so that I could share my first trip to Africa with a few friends. I think that this occurred to me because I became terrified of venturing into the unknown alone and I wanted to remain connected with home. I also wanted to record my experiences in real time for my own benefit.
One night while researching my trip to Ghana on my desktop computer, I looked over at my laptop and had an epiphany. I could fill my laptop with educational materials and donate it to a school! The idea was to give a little back while on the road, a small expression of gratitude.
So I posted this at a Ghana based forum. I was astonished at the result of my little post and what it led to.
I'm proud of the projects that I'm involved with, but at the end of the day, I'm just like you.
And we both know that we're just trying to figure stuff out.
And good luck with all that,
