Meet Tom Turcich

After the death of his friend Ann Marie, Tom's dream of walking around the world was born. Her passing woke him to his own mortality and forced him to reconsider what he wanted out of the brief time we have here. To get the most out of life, he decided to walk. By traveling slowly, he knew he would be immersed in unknown places, forced into adventure, and come to better understand the world. On April 2nd, 2015, after getting a degree and paying off his loans, he stepped out his front door. Seven years, six continents, and twenty-eight thousand miles later, he has become the tenth person to walk around the world, and his dog, Savannah, became the first dog to do so.
