What is the College Football Travel Tour?
When I was 9 years old, I had a chance to experience my first college football game. Since that day, my life hasn’t been the same. Sure, I enjoyed the game but it was as much about the passion of the fans, a fascination with college campuses, and a culture that was as consumed by events outside the game as the game itself.
When I got to college, I had the chance to travel to another part of the world for the first time. Thanks to a trip to Estonia I experience a different type of passion and culture that I never knew existed. I spent time learning foreign phrases I would never use again. I was consumed with the history of the country and the people. My view of the world was changed forever. And so was I.
A unique sports AND travel series
Today, the culture of college football and travel collide as my two passions have come together to feature a series that will appeal to anyone who loves sports or travel.
If you love college football, I want to share the tailgating experiences, the games, the drama, and unique stories that can turn a small towns into a 100,000 fanatical metropolis on a Saturday afternoon. If you love travel, find out what makes these college towns so unique with a look at interesting stories, tours of college campuses, places to eat and stay, and fun things to do.
