an extremely lucky husband to my high school sweetheart who is willing to help me accomplish my silly bucket list.
a father to one (with another one brewing) two cute babies who may or may not be as supportive with my silly bucket list.
a health care professional who works with premature neonates. I love my job but I also make good use of my 4 weeks of vacation per year. My work schedule also allows for short 3-4 day road trips throughout the year.
a part time traveler who loves to experience different parts of the world through my taste buds and camera.
a photo enthusiast who would gladly detour to get a better photograph, or wake up at 5AM to photograph the sunrise (I only get up willingly for a better photograph… but am often awake early because I have a toddler).
willing to share my experiences honestly (good or bad) because I am not sponsored by anybody.
an average citizen lucky enough to call Vancouver my home.
Why this website?
Honestly I just want to cross off another item on my bucket list (Winning a photography contest or selling a copy of my photograph to a stranger). By entering into photography contests AND having this website I’m increasing my chances to achieve my goals.
There are gazillions of travel blogs… most of them are selling a lifestyle that is not for the average traveler (ie: live free! Sell your house and quit your job to travel full time! Travel on $20/day!). I like traveling and photography… I’m simply sharing my experiences on here as an ordinary traveler.
A venue for me to display/share my photographs with the world. The chances of me becoming famous and displaying my work in galleries are slim (even then I don’t want to be a professional artist as their works are usually appreciated only after their death… see Van Gogh and others lol).
A valid reason to write-off some travel expenses and photography gears come tax time. I don’t make any money, nor do I expect to profit from this website (I would smile for days if this blog ever becomes self sustainable though 🙂 )
