Hi, I’m Rocky Trifari

Welcome To The Rocky Safari

My Travel Map  Read The Blog

“Safari” means “journey” in the Swahili language.

I have been blogging and documenting my journey through life for 7 years and counting. The Rocky Safari is where I share stories about my travels around the world while also keeping track of all the strange things that happen to me along the way!

I may be an introvert at heart but I love stepping outside of my comfort zone. I am an INFJ personality type for those of you who are familiar with the Myers-Briggs Personality Type Indicator.

From being stranded outside of the White House all alone at age 15 to getting lost inside of China’s Forbidden City in 2015, I have found myself in more unusual situations over the years than I’d care to admit. I quit my job in 2017 to travel the world. I backpacked throughout Europe for one year. Then I moved to Madrid in Spain where I lived the entire following year.

One thing I’ve realized over the years is that no matter where you are in the world, there’s always a new and exciting adventure eagerly awaiting for you to embark on. Adventure surrounds all of us. In fact, adventure really is a mindset. Now, it is time to keep exploring! Come and fly alongside me.
