Hello! My name is Jordan D Marcia.
I’ve been to 14 countries since 2009, and I work as a full-time video maker, travel blogger and content creator and marketer with 10k+ social media followers and 100k+ video views.
**If you’re a more visual person, skip to the end of this post to watch my life story explained in 3 minutes**
I grew up in rainy Vancouver, British Columbia and graduated from Douglas College with a certificate in personal training, and I used to be obsessed with working out!!
The travel bug first hit me when I was young and visited Mexico for the first time. It bit me once more in 2015 when I landed in Thailand and realized I wanted to make this my career.
From the moment I stepped off the plane in Thailand, I was instantly hooked. It was my first time in Asia, and I was already in love with the foreign sights, smells and feels. During my 6 months traveling across Asia, I decided to film and photograph the journey, so I could start a vlog when I got home. Which was a place for me to document my crazy travel experiences I was determined to help inspire people to get out of their comfort zone and live life to the fullest!
During the last three years. I was not traveling full time. Partially because I had to come home every six months for more heart medication and doctors appointments, and partially because I was still trying to figure out how to leverage the internet to keep me traveling. However, I still managed to travel through some amazing countries, and generate a few crazy stories while being in foreign countries.
And there is no end in sight. I am going to keep living my goal, and it feels like I’m just getting started. My plan is to become the worlds first heart and organ recipient to visit every country on earth.
My ultimate goal for doing what I do is to HELP YOU get started with traveling. I want to be the #1 resource for you when you think about traveling, and I strive to be a role model for the high school/college kids who aspire to become travelers.
Therefore, I encourage you to reach out to me and ask any questions you wish! I make it a goal to respond to every email, Instagram comment and Facebook message that I get. I spent 2-3 hours every day doing so.
