Traveling Ted is a blog that takes readers along on my adventures hiking, canoeing, skiing, and international backpacking. Many blogs focus on one aspect of backpacking, but I tackle both the outdoor adventure side and international exploration as well.

Trinidad & Tobago at the Chicago Travel & Adventure Show

Traveling Ted hanging with Trinidad & Tobago booth at the Chicago Travel & Adventure Show

When you are at a travel & adventure show, like the Chicago Travel & Adventure Show that took place this last weekend, it is fun to approach a booth and say “I am coming to your country in three weeks.” It is nice to know I have made two friends from Trinidad & Tobago without even stepping foot on either island. Look forward to working with Nigel and Deon in the near future.

Three weeks from taking this picture, my next adventure begins in the Caribbean Islands of Trinidad & Tobago.  I will be there for J’Ouverte, Carnival, and if I recover, I will explore the adventure travel opportunities on the island.


The goal of Traveling Ted is to inspire people to outdoor adventure travel and then provide tips on where and how to go.
