Hello there, reader!  Glad to see you have found my blog.

This was created as a way to document my travels to Southeast Asia and New Zealand in the year of 2012.  That was until my dream school, Reed College, accepted me from their waitlist at the last minute!  Now I am here in Portland, OR, documenting my time in photographs and stories.  My adventures have taken me throughout Oregon, and to Washington, California, Nevada, and across half the country on the train.  Now it is time for a bigger adventure: a semester studying wildlife management in Tanzania and Kenya.

If you like to see photos and read stories of my (mis)adventures, please follow my blog below!  If you are not interested in those things, there is nothing here for you (except a few poems, perhaps).

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Thanks for liking my post on the dialogue photo challenge. I noticed your gravatar has you at Lake Louise…one of my favorite spots from way back. Cheers!

    I wanted to catch up and say “thank you… I really appreciate your ‘follow’ as I for one, know how many interesting and entertaining blogs are out there.”

    Blogging since June 2013, my aim is to deliver an eclectic offering of posts, from my ‘point n shoot’ attempts at basic photography, to the sharing of my travel adventures over the decades, as well as day to day happenings here on the farm. Oh, plus a few observations, opinions and lighter-hearted stuff thrown in for good measure.

    I normally keep to a couple of posts a day, maybe 3-4 at weekends if I have something special to share. But if you are at a loose end one day, maybe you’ll enjoy trawling through some of my older stuff too. I have added plenty of categories to help in said digging process.

    Thanks again and hope you have a great day…
