About Me

My name is Andy Stout and my philosophy on life is to get out there and live every moment to its fullest! When I was 13 my mom was convinced that I needed to go to Europe for the first time. From then on I realized that the planet was a much larger place than just my hometown.

I believe that a body in motion stays in motion, so to that extent I never want to stay stagnant. If I am at home in San Diego, California, or abroad I am always asking myself what is next, and never want to stop exploring.

Living and traveling abroad has become an addiction of mine, which I do not think I will ever be able to shake. It sounds cliche to say, but the experiences I have had and people I have met have molded me into who I am today.

StoutABOUT is a site dedicated to documenting my travels, experiences, education, and friends I have met along the way.
