Howdy and welcome to my blog! My name is Eric Men, and I live in Dallas in the great state of Texas. Here is where I share photos, stories, and trip reports from my travels and adventures across the state, America the Beautiful, and the world.

I have been interested in seeing the world ever since I was in my late teens. Well, let’s backtrack a bit. Took my first overseas trip at 18 months old to my family’s country of origin- Taiwan. Don’t remember the journey at all, but my mother says that the passengers all commended me for not crying during the 12 hour flight. I took it as a sign of my love for flight. Fast forward quite a few years, and I ended up getting my Private Pilot certificate and later my Commercial Pilot certificate. Currently, I am in the process of building flight time to be an airline pilot.

Flying above the clouds headed to San Antonio.

I would have to say besides traveling, flying is one of my biggest passions in life, and really one of the main factors that allowed me to see so many places. From the German themed small town Fredericksburg to the historic city of Memphis, the amount of utility and flexibility you get when flying your own plane is second to none. However with the availability of low airfare, travelling the world and crossing destinations off your bucket list is something that is within anyone’s reach. With a bit of homework, travel can be as economical as it is fun!
