In that time Tyler worked construction for a year as a house painter to save money in order to travel. The next year Tyler left for Australia with two weeks working at organic farms planned out and a book full of farms he could call. After the first couple weeks at the farms he met a German and Austrailain from Sydney who he camped up the beaches of Tasmania with for three weeks. After that Tyler was lucky enough to have met enough people who had friends around the country. He spent the next six months couch surfing around Austrialia before deciding along the way that he would like to go to Asia. Tyler convinced two of his friends from Colorado to meet him the Phillipines and from there they went to Thailand and Vietnam spending a month in each country.
