Ladies and gentlemen, the end has come for Fly Brother as you’ve known it.
Since 2008, I have traveled the world and talked about it through various incarnations as an expat educator in Colombia, a globetrotter traipsing through ten countries on a shoestring and several couches, a journalist and bon vivant in Brazil, a college professor in Miami, a lover and doctoral student in Germany, and a storyteller setting down roots in South Africa and Sweden (why not?). To be sure, the journey—with its many disparate chapters and episodes—continues.
Despite a few attempts at resuscitating this website, however, I’ve come to the realization that sometimes, you have to set things down that no longer serve you in order to have a free hand for the brand new goodness coming your way. So, while “Fly Brother” is indeed in the process of being trademarked and just might resurface in another form sooner or later, this website, with its tales, tips, and inspiration for flying far and flying often, will soon be going dark.
In the meantime, please continue to witness all the high-flying shenanigans via Fly Brother’s alter ego—Ernest White II, storyteller and explorer. There will be travel narrative and fiction and cultural essays and a memoir. There will be presentations and workshops and film and television. There will be organized excursions and small-group adventures and travel.
There will always be travel—in unabridged, unapologetic, full and complete color.
Thank you for flying with me this far. Now let’s fly to the moon!
-Ernest White II
