One of the most precious gifts traveling abroad provides is all of the opportunity for interactions with people you meet along the way. Whether its just the chance encounter or meetings by design, its these connections that bear the true fruit of travel. This page is dedicated to those people and businesses who inspired me. You should know I receive nothing in return. I understand the fundamental paradox of choice that occurs when it comes to spending your money or more importantly, your time. Listed below are both my friends and business recommendations, tell ’em Brad sent you!
