¨The Johnny Nomad Experiment¨ The adventures/misadventure in the quest for understanding!?!

¨The Johnny Nomad Experiment¨ The adventures/misadventure in the quest for understanding!?!

I do not know where to begin? I grew up in a small town about 1 hr South of New Orleans. After I graduated from University(LSU Dec 03)I had no plans of what to do with my life? So I bought the cheapest international one way ticket I could find, packed a bag and set out to discover the world, and maybe myself in the process! I have not looked back ever since! Well 7 Continents and 70 countries later, here I am today back in New Orleans! I am totally addicted to life on the road! I CANNOT STOP! I have been to over 1 out of 3 countries in the world. Wait a second, Scratch that, reverse it…I have not seen 2 out of 3 countries in world! When not on the road I work in Film/Pro Dj/Theater Tech.

Johnny had a bad time in Kyrgyzstan … as he says:
What did I learn from all of this?
If anything the situation taught me how vulnerable I am out here in this foreign world. When you are a stranger in a foreign land and do not speak the language you truly are at the mercy of the people around you. After a the time I have spent traveling over the last few years I have meet some amazing people. I would say that 98% of the people I meet have had nothing but my best intentions at hand, but every single time when you come to the reality that their are bad people in the world it is a gut wrenching experience!”
