About GlobalGaz

Join me in my quest to travel to every county in the world. The UN says there are 193 countries. See where I have traveled so far!

I will share with you off-the-beaten path locations, unique experiences and must-see places. And occasionally, I will share some insights and travel advice that I have learned on the road.

I was once a corporate drone, but got laid off one too many times which propelled me on my life of travel. After a final lay off in the fall of 2008 after Lehman Brothers imploded, I never looked back.

During this time, I have visited all seven continents. Travel, whether good or bad, contributes to an astounding mosaic of memories.
