Brian Fassett grew up on a ranch in Southwest Colorado, and first ventured overseas in 1995. He started reading and writing about travel during a four month trip through Western Europe, and has been hooked ever since. His adventures include Semester at Sea, and serving in the Peace Corps with his wife Kate. He has traveled to more than 35 countries on five continents, and lived for extended periods in Ecuador, Bulgaria and recently returned from 14 months in Uganda with his family. He has called Oregon home, in between trips abroad, for most of the last two decades. You can contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
