About Grant Lingel
Grant was born February 16, 1983 in Rochester, New York. He was raised there, in the epitome of suburbia, before moving to Buffalo, New York for college. After four and a half years in university and nearly 23 years in Western New York, Grant decided it was time to head out on the open road. Though his travel experiences had been few and far between growing up, he was raised to be open-minded, curious and questioning of life and the people around him. What he wants to do now that his eyes have been opened to the world is continue the journey. One day he hopes to open hostels and pay forward the warmth and hospitality he always received while abroad. Grant currently lives in New York City.
