Why leave?

Andrew Uncharted started two years ago on the idea of maximizing your travel while still working a 9-5 job. I still hold that idea close to my heart. You truly don’t need to quit your job to adventure often. That being said, being free from the corporate grind and traveling indefinitely has been a long-term, bucket list dream of mine (seriously, ask my mom).

It’ll be a long journey starting with planning, actually leaving, and continuing to stay on the road. I’m not entirely sure where I’m going, for how long, and where I’ll end up. That being said, click below to read more about my thoughts on this trip, what drove me to do it, and more. Cheers! 🍺 

This page is where you’ll find information on how my planning is going, as well as where you’ll be able to keep track of my travels once I’ve taken off. I’ll be writing content pretty consistently, so keep checking back for more updates! Cheers!

Pre-trip Checklist

For all of you keeping track at home, these are some of the tasks I need or want to get done before my trip. I’ll often be writing about these tasks more in-depth as I complete them, so click the button below to see my thoughts on my Round-the-World To-Do list.




My primary doctor suggested that I check out Passport Health for my travel vaccinations. They give you suggestions for immunizations based on your itinerary! So, based on the countries I listed above, I did some research. I’ve made a simple, handy Google Sheet for you here so you can see for yourself!

 take salsa dancing lessons

I’ve taken one lesson so far and I’m hooked! I’m normally a liability on the dance floor, so I figure it’s a good idea to get ahead of that before leaving.


The money is saved, now I need to come up with a relatively concrete budget (that I can also share with you).

I’m in the process of planning an adventure around the world starting in the middle of July!

You might be thinking, why quit everything, leave home / family / friends and indefinitely travel the world? Here are my personal, rambling reasons for taking off.

Goðafoss roughly translates to, “Waterfall of the Gods.” The story behind this is that over 1,000 years ago, a lawman named Þorgeir Ljósvetningagoði named Christianity as the official Icelandic religion. According to the myth, he rejected the Norse gods and threw all of their statues over the falls, hence the name Goðafoss. I can’t imagine Odin and Thor and the rest of the Norse pantheon was too pleased having their likenesses shoved from the top of this waterfall. Check out a quick drone video I made of Goðafoss! Sitting off the edge of this waterfall and just marveling at the roar of it was one of the best things I’ve ever experienced.
