I’ve spent the last year or so of my life traveling near and far (but mainly far) – all the time while employed by a massive Fortune 100 company. In the last year I made it to 27 countries – most for work, some for pleasure – armed only with the camera on my cracked iPhone 4S to record these incredible places, and a meager attempt at an Instagram account (follow me! @kurlington).
I’ve explored small wondrous villages in rural China, made it to the North Korean border, and driven through the mountains of Oman – white sand beaches in Abu Dhabi, rainforest hiking in Colombia, night clubs in Roppongi Hills of Tokyo, and even dove in the Red Sea in forgotten Saudi Arabia. In the same waking breath, I’ve stayed in a luxurious 5 star resort, and shared a dorm in a hostel with sand flies. Flown across the world 1st class, and two days later found myself on a 6 hour bumpy bus ride in the Guatemalan mountains with a Mayan woman on my lap. Presented in boardrooms, and been invited for tea under a dock. I live a life of dichotomy – of dual purpose – and would not have it any other way.
