This is the personal website for Brendan Sweeney. I'm a tech sales and marketing professional in Chicago, IL.
Thanks for visiting my personal website. I'll add more content here soon. In the meantime, feel free to drop me a note!
Hi, I'm Brendan Sweeney, and I love to travel! Thank you for visiting my personal website. I will be posting photos and details of my various trips on here. When I'm not out hiking or driving across the USA, I work as a tech sales and marketing consultant. I've also spent the past couple years reading a variety of books on the practical benefits of Mindfulness, Stoic Philosophy, Metta "LovingKindness" Meditation, and the monastic concept of "Theosis" in the Eastern Catholic and Orthodox Churches. My goal is to develop a mastery of sales and marketing automation systems while traveling to as many new, exciting destinations as I can.
The full list of books I read last year:
At this point in time, I have visited 46 out of the 50 states. The only states I have yet to visit are New Mexico, Nevada, Alaska, and Hawaii.
The last three states I knocked off the list were Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont on a road trip which involved mostly hiking through the Green Mountains, White Mountains, and the Maine coastline. I also visited Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, and New York City on that same trip.
I have visited 23 countries outside of the U.S., 20 of which are in Europe. I'd like to travel to each continent at least once and visit more European countries too!
I recently travelled to Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Italy, Switzerland, and France. I will post more about my recent trips soon, but for now I'd like to just say that I was following all of the recommended COVID precautions on these recent trips, and advise you to do the same if you plan on traveling extensively in the near future.
