Hobo is an abbreviation for Homeward Bound.
This Earth is our home and I have every intention of delving into it wholeheartedly, from the deepest cave to the tallest waterfall. Only through adventure and exploration can one truly get to know our planet, see its intimate moments, and find what it means to call this place Home.
So...I am forever
Homeward Bound by means of adventure.

I also do freelance work online and have used work exchange programs as a great means to travel.
