Welcome to Travel is Life! Bienvenido! Moshi Moshi!

Paul Drecksler

That's me, Paul Drecksler. Hello!

Thank you for being here, wherever you are in the world. My name is Paul Drecksler and I founded Travel is Life because, like you, I love to travel, talk about traveling, and think about traveling – especially about where I'm going next. I also love building businesses and discovering new technology. I hope to bring you the best of these worlds on TravelisLife.org by introducing you to exciting new technology that benefits your life as an active traveler. Whether you've backpacked through Central America, road tripped across the USA, business traveled to Asia, lived and worked as a digital nomad around the world, or vacationed in Europe – I know you'll find something at Travel is Life to enjoy.

You may travel solo sometimes, but you're never alone. Travelers are a worldwide community within communities. And for that reason, I choose to give back to ours. A portion of all net profits from the website are donated to the Travel is Life Study Abroad Scholarship which helps afford high school and college students the opportunity to study abroad. Traveling can change a young person's life and I hope to provide that experience for as many students as possible in my lifetime.
