"The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a common place thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue center light pop and everybody goes "Awww!"" -Jack Kerouac

Welcome to russellgrange.com!

I believe that life is an adventure, and this is where I plan to share the best parts of the trip.
A travel blog. A life blog. My soundtrack. My story.

Everyone has their own story, made up of all the crazy adventures that one inevitably experiences on our road through life. The memorable characters we meet. The friends we make. The lessons we learn. The things that make us laugh until we are buckled over clutching our chests and wiping away tears. The good days. The best days. Someone once said “If you want to be remembered long after you are dead, either write things worth reading, or do things worth writing about.” Here’s to trying to do both.

So...What's New?
