Well hello there! Thank you for checking out my very first video here on Backpack With Brock. I had made a promise to myself a while back that I would record and post a video by December 1st and alas, here it is. You can watch it below:
In a month I am setting out on a trip around the world. I have 6 continents and 24 countries on the docket and I am sure that will change many times.
I am realizing there is so much planning going on, from figuring out flights to what to pack, to vaccinations – setting off on a year around the world is no small feat and everything seems to take more time than you plan it to.
As I continue to put this trip together and prepare for departure I will make more videos on the different aspects of making an around the world trip happen.
I am excited to be able to bring you along on this adventure and there are quite a few ways you can stay in touch, get updates and so on. First, you can join my newsletter by subscribing with your email. Next, as I post both videos and written posts, please feel free to share them on whichever social media channel you prefer, there are buttons on this page to make that easier.
If you have some thoughts after watching a video or reading a post, you have the option of leaving a comment below. You can also send me an email through the contact button above. I am happy to answer any questions you might have or simply hear from you that you are enjoying coming along for the adventure.
I also love suggestions, so, if you have any tips, ideas or what not that you would like to send me for a country or place I am visiting do not hesitate to do so. There are so many spots I will be visiting on this trip that I truly know nothing about and as much as I try to research and plan, it can be quite overwhelming.
Finally, I want to thank you for checking out Backpack With Brock and your interest in following the adventure. This is a project I am beyond thrilled to be starting and at the same time, a bit nervous because no one has done it before. Attempting to video blog my way around the world could be biting off more than I can choose but I am certainly up for the challenging. Armed with my laptop, camera and backpack, I hope to show you corners of the globe that perhaps you have heard of and dream to visit and others that you maybe didn’t even know exist.
I will leave it at that for now, but again, my sincerest thanks for joining me on this backpacking adventure. It’s going to be a blast!
It’s the first post. It’s nothing special. But yet, it’s a start. Enjoy!
