I left the United States in January of 2016 to travel the world for the sake of adventure and self-reliance. I don't have any plans; going where the wind blows me. I spent the first week in Barcelona, Spain.
Episode Eleven: Taking my Skinny Pants to BelgiumOn my last day in Spain I went shopping with friends before a long journey to Belgium in the evening/early morning.
Episode Ten: More Walking and the Quest for DinnerA new hostel leads me to discover a fresh part of the city, and by nine o'clock in the evening I'm starving and making my way to one of the other hostels for dinner.
Episode Nine: We Took a PictureWe walked from our hostel to a few famous sites in Barcelona. Along the way we picked up a couple travelers.
Episode Eight: Sunrise on the BeachI got no sleep again and decided to get out of bed early in the morning and go see the sunrise on the beach.
Episode Seven: Recovering from Friday NightAfter a night of drinking and getting little sleep, I took a six hour stroll through the city of Barcelona and took it all in.
Episode Six: 4AMOn my second day in Barcelona I fell in with a hostel that loved to party. At 4AM I was more tired than I ever remember being.
Episode Five: Sightseeing Leads to a New Hostel and a Night of PartyMy third second day in Barcelona. I kept my eyes out for a place to stay (nap) in the afternoon while sight-seeing on the West side of the city. Hostel One gave me rest and eased my social anxiety.

Episode Four: Overcoming Fear of Conversation
Episode Three: Arrival in BarcelonaMy first day in Barcelona was a bit terrifying for me. I felt a little overwhelmed and did not know how to get around. I eventually found a hostel to stay at for the night but was so tired and fatigued while waiting to check in that I was worried I would pass out.
Episode Two: Arriving to and Departing the Airport
Episode One: Getting PackedI did not plan out my packing needs very well. I started throwing stuff together the day before I left. Couldn't have done it without the help from my nephews.
