I’m Kyle Cunningham. An (almost) life long resident of sunny Las Vegas, NV. I grew up here and it’s a unique place to live. I am glad I grew up here and I hope to always have it as a home base for me while I see the world.
I suppose you could say I’ve been afflicted with ole fashioned wanderlust. When I travel correctly the feeling of exploration and discovery can pump the blood through my veins on its own. It is my beating heart. I honestly (TRULY) can not understand someone who finds no desire to leave the comfort of their city or state (or country). I have many loved ones who feel this way so it’s not a knock. I just don’t get it.
The world consists of 7+ continents, 200+ countries and 6+ billion people. There is so much to know that I quickly realized I don’t know crap. Every time I travel (every single time) I learn something new or find something out that I never thought to even wonder if it existed. Not just when I’ve gone to Tokyo or Paris or Mexico City but to even small towns in Canada or the US. Every place has a culture, an energy to it, a history all its own. I don’t think there is enough time in my lifetime to learn all there is to know about just the nation of China!
When I travel, I am up early and I am just going. I don’t like to overplan my first visits. I just want to walk and talk to people and eat their delicious food and sometimes I just pick a direction and go. That feeling of being able to choose the direction and not knowing whats down that path is the most exhilarating feeling to me. It’s like a drug. I usually travel solo and I’ve come to enjoy that. It can be scary and it’s not always perfect but sometimes it’s the best way to go without waiting on friends or family to be available and it gives you true flexibility.
Thank you for reading this and I hope you get just a little inspiration for your own travels from my blog. I am by no means an expert on the world (I doubt anyone really is) but I want to share my journey with you and hopefully make it a bit easier for you to start your own travels, solo or not.
