Travel Photo Essays

[dropcap]T[/dropcap]he world is one damn beautiful place isn’t it? As much as I am a fan of stringing together words to form imagery of the people I meet, places I go, or things I see — sometimes that just doesn’t cut it.

Sometimes Mother Nature feels the need to flaunt herself like some ravishing narcissistic pin-up, or a city shocks and awes with jaw-dropping architecture or a fascinating historical beauty lost to time. So a full-page spread is in order.

Here you will find retina rupturing and cortex tantalizing photo essays of destinations I’ve traveled to for your gawking pleasure.

A self-proclaimed corporate escape artist with a severe disdain for the mundane, a hammock addict, an adrenaline junky, and a dreamer. This blog is a collection of my travels and mis-adventures; an odyssey of oddities you if you will, not to find myself but to create myself. To seek out true knowledge first hand by discovering cultures around the world with an open mind and naked eyes.
