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!

I’m freaking out just writing this description.

I’m taking a trip around the world! This has been a lifelong dream of mine and I finally worked up the courage (and the savings) to do it. I bought a one-way ticket to Ireland and will be continuing my adventures from there. I leave almost exactly 1 month from posting this video. Excited doesn’t begin to describe it.

Now that my self-imposed video embargo has been lifted, I’ll be posting more pre-trip content in the near future. I’ll definitely want to talk about things like Packing for Long-Term Travel, My Camera Gear, and more.

Stay tuned!

Packing Minimally for Long-Term Travel

When it comes to traveling long-term, packing minimally is incredibly important. Besides the fact that it’ll make your life much simpler on the road, keeping a light backpack has multiple benefits. A light pack will keep your back relatively pain-free, as lugging around that extra camera gear will really wear you out. It will also save you a bit of money in checked baggage fees. The added benefit of that is security, your bag will never be out of your sight. Read on to find out more!

Why Vagabonding is the Best Travel Book

I just finished Rolf Potts’ book,Vagabonding, An Uncommon Guide to the Art of Long-term World Travel, and I’ve never been more excited to travel in my life. Potts speaks realistically, yet optimistically, about traveling slow and truly experiencing all the world has to offer.

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).
