About this Blog

According to, there are an estimated 600 million blogs on the internet today. So why should you read this travel and history blog? Well, I’ll fully admit: I am going to try to sell you something. I’ll try to sell you on my perspective. On the notion that being a globally rooted person teaches you things that can’t be learned elsewhere. I’ll try to sell you on the belief that life is often not black and white, and how it can sometimes be poisonous to think it so. So if you care to hear my pitch, go ahead and sign up for my email list and keep an eye on what goes on here. 

The blog has three main themes described in more detail in the links below.
They say we are a product of those who came before us and are around us. My roots run deep in the Midwest of the USA and I am now growing new ones as an expat in Amstelveen, Netherlands.  All the experiences and people that I have known that brought me here have made me who I am. I am a proud father of two boys and one dog, and husband to a woman who is the most patient and loving mom and wife I could ever have hoped for. She is my travel partner, my life coach and my tag-team sidekick in the ever interesting match of child raising.

Enjoy. And if you have thoughts on what you are seeing, feel free to comment, contact me ( and/or follow me by signing up for my email list below.
