The Continuous Traveler:
Hello & what’s up, my name is darryl johnson. Since you were wondering who is the Continuous Traveler, I figured I might as well give you a little bit of information about myself.
I call home to the beautiful Willamette Valley of Oregon, and take pride in my Pacific Northwest (PNW) roots. I’m bycoastal in nature, having spent my high school years in a suburb of Buffalo, NY, called Grand Island. I moved back to Oregon upon graduation, and have been “planted” ever since. I went to Oregon State University in Corvallis (the home of the Beavers), obtaining a BS degree in construction engineering management.
I finished Uni. in early 2007, and since haven’t stopped traveling. I’ve lived in a fair number of cities, working a ton of different odd jobs and even lived out my Subaru Outback (gypsy wagon, R.I.P) for about 8 months.
Most of my travels have been domestic and nature based. I’ve got a fond liking for National Parks, and have visited about 25 throughout the U.S.A.
As far as international voyages, I have been to Central America in ’03,’06 & ’09. The 2009 adventure was for 4 months, starting in the Maya rich Yucatan (Mexico) and backpacking as far South as the ever beautiful Costa Rica. The lions share of my time spent in Central America has been in the wonderful country of Guatemala. The mixture of the ancient Mayan culture, sickening 3rd world poverty and extreme natural beauty has been very moving and inspirational for me.
I’m currently tramping(backpacking) through the land of many ferns, New Zealand. The landscapes are so diverse and enchanting, the weather is wildly unpredictable, and the people are so genuinely sincere (unlike the States…). I absolutely love it, it’s the perfect equation to bring out the best in me. I’m here for a total of 10 weeks, and off to Eastern Australia for two weeks before flying 7000km back to my beloved PNW.
I hope you enjoy my site. I am very new to the whole website creation thing, so I apologize, because it is a work in progress. Be patient and come back to visit from time to time, and I guarantee it will only get better.
