Bio: As a young person I never had any aspirations of ever leaving Northern California. The thought of traveling far away seemed a dream out of my reach. However, one trip to Ireland in 1999 changed all of that. I caught the bug. The travel bug. I love to travel any chance I get anywhere any time. I have been fortunate enough to have traveled quite extensively and look forward to much more in the future. I love photography. And those two wonderful hobbies of travel and photography fit perfectly together. This blog is a great outlet for me to share my travel adventures along with photographs friends have always enjoyed. It is also a spiffy outlet for me to write about what makes me happy or what I am thinking about at the moment. I humbly ask you to read and enjoy and comment on anything that captures your interest. Many happy travels… *As much as I would love for this to go unsaid all photos featured on my blog are mine and cannot be used for any other purpose without first obtaining permission. Thank you for being a kind human and respecting that request.
