This blog will attempt to chronicle some of my thoughts and experiences as I make my way through South America, north to south.

I am 24-years-old. I moved to Israel right after college with no idea of what I was going to do with my hard-won genetics degree (I have yet to use it). I have lived here for two and a half years, half of which I spent teaching English at an elementary school and the other half working at a high-tech start-up. I have recently quit my job to go travel for an indefinite amount of time (meaning until I run out of money).
