My Travel Story

Hey guys, it's Ricky here!

I'm currently in the spot of where a lot of kids who just graduated High School are- trying to figure out what we want to do in life. While I know I definitely want to go to College, I'm just not quite sure I want to go right away. With that said, I've always wanted to travel to a bunch of countries all over the World. Some of the countries that I'd love to go visit are Italy, Greece, Russia, Ukraine, France, Monaco, Belgium, Lithuania, UAE, and Switzerland....just to name a few. Russia and the Ukraine have always been of great interest to me, not only because of their rich history, but also because of their culture and how different it is to a lot of other countries.

So with that said, I'm currently trying to raise funds so I can hopefully go on an extended trip go both the Ukraine and Russia one day. I'm still in the planning phase as far as places I want to go visit, although I do have an idea of a few places I'd like to go see (Hermitage in Russia, Chernobyl in the Ukraine).

The above photos for my campaign are of three places/cities which I'd really like to go and visit while on my trip: Red Square (Moscow, Russia), The Hermitage Museum (Russia) and Pripyat (Ukraine).

I'd greatly appreciate it if you'd take the time to consider donating to my campaign. Any amount, big or small, really helps me out. Even if you decide not to donate, I'd like to say thank you anyway for at least considering. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions and/or concerns and I will answer them as quickly as possible and to the best of my abilities.

Thank you all in advance for your time and consideration and I hope you will considering helping me out.
