I’m traveling the world to first hand experience different walks of life and to intimately learn the beliefs of other cultures, while unbiasedly taking in the world, from different perspectives.
To spread sincere love to every soul I encounter.
To intimately experience the beliefs of other cultures first hand.
To reap any knowledge I can obtain and sow any wisdom I possess.
To plant, and leave behind, gardens everywhere I visit.
To learn foreign instruments, languages, and healing practices from around the world.
To be a window into international culture, specifically: Art, Music, Spirituality, and Wellness.
If you’d like to come along, you are more than welcome to join me!
Reflecting on my journey in this blog and visually documenting my travels on instagram.
Giving real-time updates on snapchat.
My handle is Leaveit2joshua on all social media =)
See you soon,
Reflections, Epiphanies, Serendipities and Milestones
Upon embarking on this trip, even though I brought Amos(my guitar) with me, I didn’t really plan on focusing on music much. There were other goals and passions that I was working on. At the Union Station, in Chicago, while waiting for my train to take me down to New Orleans, I heard a youngContinue reading “THE MUSIC! Pt 1”

I kept putting off reading it, but committed to finishingContinue reading “The Alchemist”
While riding past the snow blanketed corn fields of the north, a thought approached me , yesterday, but I was too busy taking pictures to acknowledge it. It wasn’t until passing the little homes, sprouting from the blankets of snow, in Colorado, that it really hit me: There are so many different ways of life,Continue reading “Home”
It’s interesting how perspective works. I’ve spent hours, days, even years reflecting in front of the Elizabeth River, back home in Virginia. That same river, that I cross over to and from home every day, is the very same river that my train crossed over to embark on this adventure. It’s amazing how the sameContinue reading “Perspective and Privilege”
I’m about to embark on a journey to see the world. However, before I go, I believe it’s vital that I first see my “backyard”. I’ve dreamed of a cross train trip for years, and my train departs tomorrow! From Norfolk, VA it will take me up to D.C. From DC, I board the CapitolContinue reading “From Sea to Shining Sea”
