Why does travel inspire us?

There’s something intangible about being away from home that creates a sense of awe, wonder, inspiration, creativity, and joy inside us all.

Do you love being surrounded by Mother Nature’s beauty?

Trekking the globe for spectacular sunsets, sandy beaches, monumental mountains, and lush landscapes?

Are you an urban adventurer? 

Gazing out at soaring skylines, exploring cobblestoned cities, and channeling your inner Indiana Jones at ancient architectural sites?

For many of us, travel is about human connection.

Sharing space with loving locals and cherished travel companions, enjoying a scrumptious smorgasbord with someone special, and seeing the world through someone else’s eyes.

Then, there’s the journey itself …

Taxis, tarmacs, trains, and transit. Getting from here to there can be quite an adventure. As Emerson said, “It’s the not the destination … it’s the journey.”

My Best Transportation Stories

Hi, I’m Greg Goodman

For a decade, my wife and I backpacked, volunteered, and lived around the world.

It was a transformational time of personal growth and unforgettable adventures, as I constantly catapulted myself out of my comfort zone.

Along the way, I shared our adventures on this website. My mantra was “follow your heart and success will follow you. Turns out the Universe was listening, as my Photographic Storytelling appeared in galleries, publications, and TV shows around the world.

Fast forward to today, Carrie and I have two kids and a home in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Extended backpacking expeditions have been replaced by local jaunts and family outings. Yet, our travel spirit lives on.
