Picture 127

Ryan Johnson

Mark Twain once wrote that "Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts." Like Twain, I believe that traveling does something to us: it helps to shed the ego, exposes us to the earth's expansive diversity (both natural and human), and drives us towards interconnectivity. This fascination with the various peoples and places across the world has sent me along a number of journeys. I delight in the philosophical, historical, rambunctious, etc. when I travel, bringing me on bicycle treks across desolate Icelandic roads, lucha libre brawls between masked and colorful luchadores in Mexico City, and across thousands of miles of road along Canada's singular interprovincial highway. Join me, won't you?

Good things are meant to be shared!
