My name is Julian Deane Benabides.

I'm an author from California, but I've spent most of my adult life outside of the United States. My two biggest passions, aside from writing, are photography and travel. You can see a few pictures of me and my travels.

You can read about how I was able to afford this lifestyle here:

How to Travel for a Year

I have worked as a manager of a school, a teacher, copywriter, ​and various odd jobs. One of the most important things I did was volunteering for a few weeks in a refugee camp in northern Greece. I encourage you to check out the blog and offer support to the people who are on the ground, busting their asses to help others. Here is a blog I wrote for the organization I was working with:
