Hi, I’m Rocky Trifari.

Welcome to The Rocky Safari!

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

I have been blogging and documenting my journey through life for 8 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 left my job in 2017 to travel the world and to learn how to make money online. I backpacked throughout Europe for one year in 2018. Then I moved to Madrid, Spain where I lived the entire following year.

I have a goal of visiting every country on Earth. While some travelers bounce around quickly from country to country, I tend to prioritize slower, long-term travel. It is not unusual for me to spend 30 days or longer in a new country. Although I still have a long way to go before I reach my goal, I’m enjoying the journey.

One thing I have realized over the years is that no matter where you are in the world, there will always be new and exciting adventures awaiting us in the places where we least expect them. Curiosity resides within all of us and it eagerly awaits the day we wake up and decide to embrace it. Now, it’s time to keep exploring. Come and fly with me!
