The quote below I heard when I was 19 and planning my first extended solo trip. I was very apprehensive about travelling alone, but then I read this quote I knew what I had to do.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.  – Mark Twain


Over the last 15 years, I’ve had an unbelievable time travelling. Not only to unusual places all over the world, but also spectacular places in my own backyard, British Columbia. Exploring the worlds nooks and crannies is such an enjoyable experience. To be able to share my travels on-line makes it even more memorable.


I hope you enjoy my good times and good stories.
