Hey, I’m Nick!

I’m a ‘retired backpacker’ and full-time writer. I’ve always been drawn to the religious centers and spiritual sights of the world. I showed up in Taiwan 10 years ago and decided to call it home. When I’m not writing or compulsively planning every detail of our next family trip, I’m most likely playing princess or transformer games with my two kids.
