As of August 2016, I'm leaving everything I know to travel around the world for a year with 75 people I've never met. You, like many others, might be questioning my sanity. Let it be known that I've gotten my mind checked multiple times by licensed therapists, and they have all reluctantly admitted that Brooke Siem is clinically sane, though they still seem perplexed by my decision.

Too late to turn back now! My itinerary takes me across five continents, 10 countries, and 12 cities. I start in Malaysia and end up in Argentina. In between I hit Thailand, Cambodia, Czech Republic, Croatia, Portugal, Mexico, Colombia, and Peru.

Good thing I took high school Spanish for two years.

During my time abroad, I will be writing for the strength and fitness publication BarBend.com. I'll be searching for interesting stories in fitness in unlikely places, so if you know someone who's getting crazy fit on a rice patty in Indonesia, or burpee-ing their way through Portugal, let me know!

I'll also be blogging about my general travel experience (and lots about food and the people who make it) right here on my website.  You can follow me on Instagram and Twitter.

I can’t promise much, but I know one thing for sure: it won’t be boring.
