My name is Troy Hendershott and I am a Korean-American I was actually born in South Korea but adopted to an American family and grew up in Denver, Colorado.
A little about me: I graduated from the University of Colorado at Boulder in 2006 and have lived quite a unique life. I was fortunate enough to fall into a career in broadcast television at the age of 18 where I worked many positions (including working full time and completing my University education- so study hard!) and then at the age of 30 I retired to live out my dream of traveling around the world as a backpacker and budget traveler! I left Denver, Colorado and the United States on March 5, 2012 and throughout my life I have been to 35 different countries and have lived in 19! I’ve traveled throughout Europe, Australia, every country in Central America, South America, South East Asia and East Asia!

I received Flat Stanely via my friend I met while traveling in Thailand and my future plans will be leaving Korea on April 29, 2015 where I’m going to Alaska to try my hand at being a commercial salmon fisherman, which will be living on a boat for 100-plus days. Thereafter I will return to Colorado and Texas to visit family but only for a few weeks before continuing this global adventure, which may take me to India, Nepal, and if I am able to get the visa, Tibet. I also plan to possibly travel and spend a year in Africa so IF all goes well and I don’t lose Flat Stanley, he’ll have an opportunity to see a lot more of the world!
All of these photos so far have been taken in Seoul, a city that is the second most densely populated city in the world with a population twice that of NYC, roughly 26.5 million people, but it’s very fun, safe, and exciting! Hopefully more adventures and photos will come soon!
