Welcome. My name's Jimmy (or James) Lyons. Pilgrim with a Passport started in 2012 as an attempt to document my experiences teaching English in South Korea. As it turned out, I ended up documenting my weekend travels and excursions far more than my teaching life, and when my wife Angela and I decided to go on a nine-month journey around the world, I documented that too. Now that we're living in the United States - but with our heads still drifting in and out of exotic recollections - I use Pilgrim to showcase my travel thoughts, essays and guides.
