Green Sun

The story of a journey...

Welcome to the Journey…

The skies are filled with yellow stars, blue stars, red giants, brown dwarfs, black holes … but nowhere in the universe can you find a green star. Green suns don’t exist in the sky. There is only one green sun. Right here. Green Sun is the story of my journey across all fifty states, all seven continents, and as many countries as the law allows on a U.S. passport. Check back here for reviews and advice on solo travel, budget travel, “vagabonding,” and lessons learned.

 

If you like what you read, Green Sun is also a small business.  I can tell your story. Green Sun offers public relations and writing services from a Phi Beta Kappa English Literature major who is also a US Army Public Affairs major with almost two decades of experience in crisis communications and media relations.
