Welcome to Where The Road Forks

Hey guys, my name is Zac. Over the years, travel and outdoor recreation have allowed me to have experiences and adventures that I would never dream of if I had stayed at home. This has brought me an enormous amount of joy, contentment, and confidence.

I created this website to share my experience and help others have their own adventures. It is my mission to help travelers and adventurers like you save money, stay safe, travel more, and have an adventure.

This website is a reflection of my passion, knowledge, and experience. Every article you read here is written by me based on my own personal experience and extensive research.

Where The Road Forks focuses on travel and outdoor recreation. On this website, I write about my passions including adventure travel, digital nomad life, hiking, camping, and cycling. The content I share is designed to be informative, accurate, and realistic. You can read more here or follow me on social.

Mexico Guides

I have spent several years living in Mexico off and on. For over 2 years, I lived in Tijuana and walked across the border to work in San Diego. I’ve also traveled the country extensively. It’s one of my favorite countries. I’ve spent more time there than in any other country outside of my home country.

In these guides, I outline my experiences traveling and living in Mexico. I’ll teach you how to visit Mexico safely and save some money.

Africa Guides

Africa is my favorite place to travel. I recently spent 5 months living in Uganda. So far, I’ve visited about 12 countries on the continent with more trips planned in the future. In these guides, I’ll teach you how to get around Africa. I’ll also talk about visas, safety, budgeting, and more.


Over the years, I’ve made plenty of mistakes while traveling. I’ve found myself in some bizarre situations and sometimes dangerous situations. I’ve also wasted plenty of money. In these guides, I share some travel tips to help you avoid making those same mistakes.
