Another Person
Revels In Love For Others
Only Loves Self..

– Plutaricart, 176 B.C.

This website originally began as a joke. I never intended it would get this popular and would gain the following it has. As the months have passed I have had a bad feeling in the pit of my stomach. It is time to let everyone know the truth:

I’ve been living a lie. I haven’t been traveling around the world. In fact over the last 9 months, I haven’t even left my house.

Me, the real Roy Dewitt

Me, the real Roy Dewitt

My real name is Roy Dewitt. I’m 47 years old and live off disability in Macon, Georgia. I’ve never even left the United States.

I originally started this site as a way to pretend what it would be like to travel. Traveling around the world was always my life’s dream. I was involved in a construction accident 16 years ago and since then I ballooned to 400 pounds. With the injury and weight gain, I am unable to leave the house now.

Travel is something I’ve always wanted to do. I took some photos from different people on Flickr and started to write as If I was traveling.

Eventually more people started reading the website so I found the website of a some guy from Eastern Europe who was traveling and I just followed where he was going and wrote about the adventures I thought he would be having. Gary is just a fictitious character who embodies all which men want to be, and all women want to be with.

One thing lead to another and the next thing you know, I have thousands of people reading this site every month.

I eventually told my pastor about what I was doing and he said I should come clean before someone gets hurt. I was getting too many emails from women who were attracted to the adventurous, macho, modern day Indiana Jones character which I had created in Gary. I was wrong of me to put such a strong, intelligent and attractive persona on the internet.

Now that I’ve come clean, I hope that everyone can forgive me.

Good Bye, Roy
