About Larry Bosco

In 2010 I had one of those “Is this all there is” moments and so in January 2011 I retired from Real Estate Appraising, sold off all my worldly goods and headed out as a solo traveler in search of a new place to live. Since then I’ve traveled around the world, made new friends and had many great adventures and some not so great. After staying almost a year in Cuenca, Ecuador I have headed back to South East Asia where I began the journey in 2011. Currently I am living in Chiang Mai, Thailand

Turkey…Settling In or Not?

Posted ago by Larry Bosco

For six years I have been on the road circling the globe in search of what, I ask myself.  Have I really been searching for something, someplace or have I just been wandering for the sake of wandering.  This is more »
