Taking a rest in Tiger Leaping Gorge (Yunnan Province, China)

Dotted Route started out as an idea to share my travel stories and tips I have accumulated over the past five years.  This blog will attempt to be a treasure trove of the great adventure stories I find, the great food places where you can stuff your face, and the stuff any traveler wished he knew before embarking out on that journey.

My travel journey began after graduating from college in 2005.  I took on a post-baccalaureate internship with Robert Bosch in Stuttgart, Germany.  It was  a half-year internship that allowed me to travel all over Europe.  With the ease of the European rail system, I took a weekend trip almost every week save for 2-3 weeks in the summer.  The travel bug bit and it bit hard.  From there, I have taken my passion for travel to places all around Europe, Asia, and hopefully more places sooner than later.
