Hi, I’m Rocky!

I’ve been blogging for five years and counting.

Welcome to theĀ Rocky Safari! Storytelling is one of my greatest passions. This blog was created as a space to share stories about my travels around the world while keeping track of all the strange things that happen along the way! From being stranded outside the White House all alone at age 15 to getting lost inside Chinaā€™s Forbidden City, I have found myself in more unusual situations than Iā€™d care to admit. I embrace each new day with child-like curiosity, making the most of all that life has to offer. Be sure to follow along and join the safari adventure!
