The meaning behind your blog name.
My blog name is a little ironic, but all with good intention.
Buddhist literature describes as as having 108 defilements, or feelings that lead to affliction. I “crave” to diminish all defilements, and I believe that each time I travel and experience something new it helps me begin to dissolve one or more. It’s all about perspective.
A list of the 108 feels of which cause suffering.
|eagerness for power||lying||insidiousness||self-denial|
|greed for money||seducement||vindictiveness||insatiability|
|oppression||prodigality||lack of comprehension||obstinacy|
|calculation||unyielding||desire for fame||deception|
I was in the U.S. Army, Hooah! And in military terms, a “klick” means a distance of 1000 meters (one kilometer, or .62 miles). Since it represents distance, and I have an affinity for the Army, I used this word in my travel blog because it is a part of me, and I felt it, aprepro.

Around the World
I want to travel the world! Experience, do, meet new people. I have goals to fly, bike, walk, drive, bus…hundreds of thousands klicks around the world, and to diminish 108 feels which cause suffering.
