About me

I'm Wesley, the wandering soul behind - but you can call me "Wide-eyed Wes." It's tongue-in-cheek for always having my eyes closed in pictures. Travel has been ingrained in my very being since birth when I took my inaugural flight at just one day old. That insatiable curiosity to explore the world has never left me.

Over the last 15 years, I've visited 18 countries across 3 continents, accumulating over 1 million travel miles. During 6 incredible years, I barely spent more than 4 consecutive nights in any single place, even on vacations! This extreme schedule allowed me to master the arts of efficient packing and meticulous travel planning.

My expertise has earned me features as a trusted travel wardrobe advisor for BestLife Online and I have also been quoted in The Motley Fool. After years in the transportation industry, I transformed my lifestyle in 2019, quitting my office job to fully embrace remote work and a nomadic existence.

Now semi-based in Mexico, my "office" is truly wherever I roam, from vibrant city streets to serene natural environments. Living with hidden disabilities like a herniated disc and heart condition, resilience and thoughtful planning are key to never missing out on an adventure.

I share my globetrotting tales and unparalleled travel insights through my blog and lively social media channels. With a heart that belongs to the world, I aim to inspire others to explore every breathtaking destination our planet offers.
