My passion for travel started in my early 20’s, when I took my first solo trip to Europe. In my early 30’s I decided to start saving for a 3 to 4 year trip around the world. I thought this would be the only way to visit all the places I wanted to see. I finally realized that dream in 2014 when I quit my job and bought a one-way ticket to Peru.
In total, I traveled to 33 countries from 2014 to 2018, including 9 months of living in Sydney, Australia. These were the best years of my life.
In addition to long-term travel, I also enjoy multi-day hikes that includes camping and carrying all my food and gear. Over the past few years I have hiked the John Muir Trail, the West Coast Trail in Canada, and the Waitukubuli National Trail in Dominica, Mount Roraima in Venezuela, the “W” at Torres del Paine in Chile, 8 Great Walks in New Zealand, and Mount Fuji in Japan.
I started to take photography more seriously a couple of years before my long trip, when I purchased my first DSLR. I now travel with a Nikon D5300, and always carry at least 3 lenses with me: a Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8, a Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8, and a Nikon 55-200mm f/4-5.6.
This blog is more of a personal journal than something I build for an audience. I don’t write articles to generate clicks or sell ads (you won’t find any ads here). I’m humbled by the few visitors I get everyday. Hopefully you will find some useful piece of information or some inspiration for your future travels.
