About Me

My name is Joe Chavez. I have just graduated from Roosevelt High School, and I'm still discovering new interests and hobbies. Hopefully, my gap year to Southeast Asia will narrow it down a bit for me.

Chaz stopped by with a huge hug to give.

Today is my last day in Seattle before embarking on a six country cultural exchange journey. I've said my goodbyes to friends and family, and the reality of this trip has definitely set in. Dang, if I had a nickel for every time I heard, "good luck," or "be safe"...

All of my clothes, camera equipment and other sundries are covering my bed in an orderly fashion. I've spent weeks preparing for this four month trip and yet I don't feel any more prepared than when I first signed up. My 75 liter backpack is starting to look smaller and smaller as I throw in other necessary items (might have to sacrifice the books).


I take off from Seattle tomorrow morning headed to LAX. My mom, my sister and I are spending the day exploring LA and enjoying our last hours together before I leave.


I'm meeting at the airport at 7:00pm to connect with my group members! There's a total of 14 of us (dope group leaders included), and we are all supposed to awkwardly mingle before we board a 12 hour plane ride to Thailand.

However, until then, I'll be packing all of my gear into my backpack, along with loads of Advil.
