Evolution of a Traveler


Traveling has a profound ability to change a person in many ways. It can give you a new outlook on the world and its cultures, make you learn new skills and, if you do it right, push yourself to the limits. But long-term travel can also change you physically. You’ve seen what it can do to a passport. Whether it’s a beard, hair, sun damage, or weight gain/loss, something is bound to evolve.

To test this, I took a picture of myself every week for my 6 month backpacking trip through India. Be on the lookout for only five shirts (but mostly my Lululemon Metal Vent Tech shirt), two beards, and no haircuts.

On my return, people said that I aged 5 years. See for yourself.
