Hey what‘s up? I’m Dave…

…but I’m more commonly known as my nickname / travel alias JONES. I’m originally from Southern-California, but have made long-term travel into a lifestyle. I’ve lived in 6 different countries, love learning new languages, and have a strange obsession with hummus. You’ll most likely find me on a tropical beach, at a music festival, or anywhere I can get a cold beer. I’m also an aspiring travel photographer, so you’ll rarely find me without my camera. I’m on a mission to explore the world, live abroad, and make every day count.

Follow along on my global adventures!
