Jordan is a wanderer/adventurer who surrounds himself with creative energy, much of which he supplies himself. He is one of those rare unicorns who is both a thinker and a doer. He is rad, and so is his photography.


rules for travel BY JORDAN SWARTZ 

Brush your teeth morning & night. Think with your gut. If there’s water, go swimming. Keep a clean shaved neckline. Always stay for one more drink. Always wear a condom. Leave the campsite better than you found it. What’s a writer that doesn’t write? Mind your manners. Make sure your host knows they’re appreciated. Never lie. Don’t be a snob about food, free food no matter where it came from is still food. Be comfortable sleeping in a sleeping bag. Talk to strangers. Go everywhere once before you go anywhere twice. Give every relationship your all but know when to leave. Be the first to admit that you’ve fucked up. Never blame the hangover; you got yourself there. Never travel without your passport. If you love someone, make sure they know. Fail greatly & repeatedly. Know your limits, but be willing to push them.
