Who is this Guy?
I’m Zack Klamn and I’ve been lucky enough to travel this amazing world at various stages in my life. Now I’m a proud papa raising three boys and a Lab with my awesome wife in California.
Born in Canada, I ventured overseas for the first time in 2003. Over the next three years I capitalized on a great run of developing countries – being younger, flexible, and wanting no regrets later in life about not seeing them.
A Couple Abroad
Shortly after those adventures, I met my wife-to-be and we soon began building our life across the globe, in Australia.
We eventually settled down to grow roots in America’s Golden State. I still hit the global road whenever I can, thanks mostly due to my super-duper spouse who understands that seeing the world shaped me to who I am. Countries visited so far: 55. Countries to go: as many as possible. Travel is still very much part of my fiber.
Why Tacks on a Map?
Each story is my own, “Tack on a Map.” In 2015, I began writing about my adventures abroad – reminiscing of yesteryears’ journeys and documenting new ones. It’s fun, therapeutic and I’m ready to release these memories into the wild. The only way to become a better writer is to write, just as one becomes a better traveler – and citizen of the world – by getting out there and experiencing it.
Not only am I striving for an interesting and diverse format, I hope this offers a brief window into the many magnificent cultures of world. Or better yet, inspires you to get out there and make your own stories. Here goes, enjoy!
