Hello, I'm Manuel, some people call me Manny. I'm 34, live in and from North Carolina. I am currently in the Army, been in for 13 years, but I will be out before the end of this year 2012. I have been to Iraq for 4 deployments. I have recently joined Globetrooper to finally see my dreams come true. To travel and "find myself". I've always wanted to see the world and now I'm going to. My plans are to start in Feb 2013 through Feb 2014. Thats right a whole year to visit the world. This adventure for me I want it to meaningful, exciting, and spirtual. I don't mean religious. I mean to look into myself more to see what I'm capable of and find purpose, meaning, and direction. I want to volunteer along the trip, help others, but at the same time have a wonderful time learning the many cultures out there and enjoying the festivities. I'm not sure how much this trip will cost yet but will be preparing and researching. I don't mind joining a group or starting a group. Would love to pick up some new friends in my life. I can't wait. Reply to me if your seriuosly interested in this trip or already have a group I can join.
