A chance to spend a month backpacking solo across nine countries was the start of when I started to carry a small notebook in my right back pocket. Among other lessons that trip taught, I learned to trust strangers who waiting to become friends and situations ready to become stories and memories.

Rightbackpocket is a celebration of that trip filled a small notebook with simple thoughts and reflections, suggestions from more prepared travelers, and two hand drawn maps from strangers. The notebook gave thoughts (and sometimes people) a chance to grow into something more significant, just in case they turned into something good.

Thanks for being here,
