I’m trying my hand at blogging mainly to showcase my photography, not so much my writing skills. I recently began sorting through my photo archives and have found a lot of pictures I feel are worth sharing. Words about my travels, work, activities, and musical interests may be thrown in the mix; however, being engineer by trade, written is not my forte. But I do what I want.
My travels have taken me to a lot of amazing places and I always have plans for mo’. Top countries in my book include SWITZERLAND (80% right now), Croatia, Guatemala, and Luxembourg. The majority of my ventures are to Europe and around mine continent but I have also dipped into Central America and the Caribbean. I go where I want (is this ok, Lyss?).
I currently work what I want at an engineering firm specializing in arctic construction. Basically, over 50% of my time is spent in the Canadian north, Alaska, and hopefully beyond. Funny enough, even though I’m north of 60 so much, I have very few photos to show for these incredible places. Perhaps I’m less appreciative of my surroundings because its my work environment. Or perhaps its the 9 months of the year that are TaunTaun freezin’ cold (Hoth averages below -45) while the other 3 are spent battling Volkswagen-sized horseflies among other airborne behemoths. Regardless, the tundra is a truly amazing environment that most people will never understand without experiencing it. As a personal mandate, I aim to take more northern photos and post them regularly.
Rock climbing is a staple activity of mine but I also enjoy a good snowboard, football (not the ‘merican kind), squash, and doing what I want. A strenuous game of chess is always fantastic. My musical interests tend to vary violently and the only genre I listen to on a semi-regular basis is da blues. However, as I write, Neil Young just finished wailing and the chaos that is The Mars Volta fills my ears. These are all things I find pleasant.
Enjoy what you want.
