Start Here



Mike Smith here.

 I assume you’re searching for something; some sort of red pill, blue pill dichotomy that will remove you from a mundane existence.  You wish to use your allotted number of breaths to experience our world outside of your current understanding of it. You hope to turn bucket list items into memories.

I do not offer any magic pill or silver bullet to achieve your dreams. All I can offer is perspective and applicable advice on how to make your dreams of travel and adventure a reality.  I can guide you onto a course of life that will give you modest financial stability, opportunity to travel year round and the opportunity to meet amazing people around the world. Hang out for a spell and read through the links below, I think you’ll like it here.

Welcome to Blue Collar Travel

All the Best,

Mike Smith
