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 with Daniel Branson 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.
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 with a semester of malaria scares in Ghana, and have since traveled extensively in Asia, South America, and the US. When I’m not traveling, you can find me planning backyard theme parties or on the San Francisco muni collecting stories.

Where the Hell Have I Been?
I’ve been to just over 30 countries throughout Asia, South America, the Middle East, Africa, and Europe. Take a look at all of the featured destinations here!
I created Travel Outlandish in the quirky as hell city of San Francisco. Full of craft cocktail bars, strange street fairs, ethnic neighborhoods, street art, unusual foods, and incredible music festivals, San Francisco is the place I fell in love with all things alternative. If you have any questions about what to experience in San Francisco, check out my list of 101 fun + weird things to do in San Francisco, or reach out. I’d love to tell you all about it!
I’m currently living in Berlin, and am not too sure where my next home will be. For now, I’m just enjoying the break from San Francisco parking tickets.
