Epic Journey 2008

In 2008, Stephen took a year-long round-the-world trip from his home in Southern California to New Zealand, Australia, Asia, Africa, Europe, the Pacific and Central America. These are a collection of his writings and photos from that trip.

Steve's Epic Journey - The Northern Quest

The Northern Quest

Greetings from the Czech Republic, Germany, Austria, and the Netherlands! I have spent the last several weeks exploring the famed Hapsburg Empire from Vienna to Prague, chugging delicious liters of beer at Oktoberfest, understanding contemporary history in Berlin, and leisurely strolling the streets of Amsterdam.

Steve's Epic Journey - Ancient Cities

Ancient Cities

Greetings from Thailand, Egypt, and Italy. It has been a busy couple of weeks with travel on three continents over several cities. These three countries are as diverse as they come. Each had marvelous sights, history, at- tractions, people, mu- sic, foods, and cultures.

Far East Escapades

Far East Escapades

Greetings from Russia, Mongolia, China, Hawaii and the bridge of the USS Benfold! The epic world adventure continues with travel through the East, Pacific and beyond. It was so EPIC that it required a special double edition of the newsletter just to fit in all the tales of glory.

Steve's Epic Journey - Wellington

Wellington, New Zealand

Over the course of several weeks, I saw the entirety of New Zealand, from the most northern tip (Cape Reinga) where the Paci c and the Tasman Sea meet, to Steward Island the last stop before Antarctica. I have bungy jumped, river boarded, mountain climbed, trekked, swam, and splunked every square meter of these islands… and loved every minute of it.

Steve's Epic Journey - The North Island

North Island, New Zealand

Greetings from Russia, Mongolia, China, Hawaii and the bridge of the USS Benfold! The epic world adventure continues with travel through the East, Pacific and beyond. It was so EPIC that it required a special double edition of the newsletter just to fit in all the tales of glory.

Steve's Epic Journey - Australia

Australia, Oceania

G’Day from Australia! On August 18th, I departed the chilly climates and familiarity of Wellington, New Zealand for the balmy and unknown of Cairns, Australia. I said goodbye to my life as a Kiwi and started on my journey around the world.

Steve's Epic Journey - The South Island

South Island, New Zealand

It is hard to believe that I have been gone for almost two months. I find myself in my own bubble that is devoid of time and news. As someone that prided himself on being up to date on national happenings, I couldn’t even tell you won the primaries or next season’s starting lineup for the Angels.

Steve's Epic Journey - Fiji & New Zealand

Fiji & South Island, New Zealand

Hope this letter finds you well. Peter, Curtis & I find ourselves in the middle of our third week abroad. We spent the first week abroad in Fiji, last week in Auckland and this week in Queenstown. Thus far the trip can be summarized by warm weather, sandy beaches, and unfamiliar accents.
