No joke. That's why I decided to go on a round-the-world tour, exploring some areas, volunteering in others. In the course of maybe a year, a dozen of my friends, in my workplace, in my home, and elsewhere in my circles were either getting married, or having children. So, I was like, "I don't have a girlfriend, I don't own property, I'm not that deep into a career, and I'm still fairly fit physically...I need to get out of here." And then I started prepping.
By the way, that's me on the left. (I'm the human, not the waterfall.) My name is Andrew Schnorr, and I'm currently on a year-long sabbatical from my job as a marketing goon in video games. I love my job, as it combines my passion for video games and my passion for marketing. But I have other passions, too. Traveling is one. Animals is another. Helping others is yet another one. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to explore those passions to any great extent. This trip should remedy that.
The Wandering Loon should provide some insight into what happens to me, from when I take my first flight to when I get eaten by a lion. Or return. Whichever comes first.
