I fell in love with travel and writing at the same time, freshman year in college, 2005, the year I quit playing competitive basketball and read Jack Kerouac's "On the Road." That summer I took off across country for the first time, and I haven't stopped traveling since.

These are the Lost Guides; a series of travel-articles, stories, experiences, "sketches," and even occasional recommendations. They are in many different styles, but I believe there is a sutra, a thread holding them together.
