Here’s the story
Remember being a kid? Out of bed, we would peek at R-rated movies and look forward to sneaking bad words and lighting fireworks. Our parents told us to be patient. They promised that the entire world would open up to us someday.
Suddenly, we’re a whole lot older. Our ambitions of trekking through Chilean desert and watching the sunrise over Angkor Wat run wild, but we quell them with the expectation that there will be a time for adventure someday. In the meantime, we spend our workdays eating $15 superfood salads, our weekends hustling for fun, and the time in between dreaming up what we’ll do when we get the courage. A life lived courageously sounds alright, doesn’t it?
I say waiting for someday is too risky. Travel Outlandish is about going now.
I created Travel Outlandish to showcase the offbeat, immersive, faraway travel experiences. From alternative treks, to urban street art, to weird world festivals, to unique hotels, to cultural experiences, we catalog the details so all you have to do is get there. Whether you’re ready to take off on an adventure around the world or are saving up for a week away, we believe there is a life of adventure just beyond the grind.
If you like to travel a bit differently, have an appreciation for video and photography, and can handle the bad puns, I think you’ll like this blog quite a lot.
Oh yeah, I’m Taylor
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about Travel Outlandish! I’m Taylor, an adventure traveler with an eye for the offbeat and a ridiculous sense of humor. I’m also a photographer, writer, and breakfast ice cream aficionado. I got into travel after a few malaria scares in Ghana, and have since worked, lived, and traveled throughout Asia, South America, Europe, and the US. When I’m not traveling, you can find me planning backyard theme parties, eating street tacos in San Francisco, or exploring abandoned buildings.
What’s brings you here, anyway? I’d love to know! Send me a message.
Where the hell am I?
It changes all the time. I’m from the USA, but am currently living in Germany. I grew up in Colorado, but Travel Outlandish started in California. I’ve been to just over 30 countries throughout Asia, South America, the Middle East, Africa, and Europe. I’ve lived in Ghana, Thailand, India, Ecuador, Peru, Chile, Germany, and Spain. I believe life is a little too short to spend it all in one place, so I’m always seeking out new places worth staying. Does that answer your question?
