Happy Birthday: Tripologist Turns 2

Happy Birthday! Turns 2

Two years ago today, on October 21, 2011, was born. The first post was a repost of an article I wrote for 10 Magazine in Korea about a festival that had already happened. Certainly not the best post I’ve ever written, but everyone has to start somewhere.

From that single post, Tripologist has grown and now has over 300 posts about everywhere from Korea to Turkey to America, and a lot of places in between.

In the past year, the site has grown considerably and has transitioned from a part-time hobby to part of my full-time job.

All that being said, I wanted to thank each of you for reading my site. I know I might not be the best writer or photographer out there, but I’ve poured my heart and a lot of time into this website over the past two years, and I appreciate each of you who have read it, commented on the articles, and connected with me on social media.

Thanks for everything! Without you, there would be no reason for to exist.

To help commemorate the site’s second year, here are a few of my favorite posts written in the last year:
