About Us

There are about 7 billion people on Earth. That means there are 7 billion different dreams but only one dream that everyone shares- Traveling.

Traveling includes going to other countries to experience new cultures, meeting new people, hiking a mountain to see the beauty of nature, and going to a beach to relax and have fun. These are just some examples of that Dream. We all want to travel but are we able to do it?

I had a dream about traveling but didn’t because my circumstances never allowed me. After I was discharged from the military, I had to face devastating reality. My family was broke, my parents got divorced and my girlfriend left me. I didn’t even have a place to stay for a single night. Yes, I became homeless. Every day, I had to fight for food and find a place to sleep. Days after days, all I could think of was suicide because I felt useless, hopeless, and homeless.

One day, I was sitting at a library doing nothing and I saw a photo book about traveling. The book was full of beautiful cities and places that I didn’t know. I was looking at the photos for hours and I realized I had a dream about traveling. Then I knew I had to travel. Since I knew I had a dream, I started looking for a job and working 16 hours or more a day. No matter how tough the job was, I did it because I knew I was getting close to my dream. Years later, I finally had enough money to travel. I traveled lakes and ocean sides, hiked mountains and most memorably I traveled 2 different countries. Now I travel whenever I have time and still feel the same thing when I did that first day.

I am eager to share the feeling that I had. That is why I started My Gaia Travel Buddy. We are an online store that focuses on items surrounding travel and how to make it easier for you to do so. I hope our products would help your travel become smoother and more memorable. Furthermore, I do not forget where I came from and what I had to endure before my travel store. Therefore, 3% of all our Revenue goes to homeless shelters and Feeding America to help those who are most vulnerable in our society.
