About the Post

Author Information

My name is Scott and I like to travel. There I said it, wow that does feel better. There is probably a program for my affliction somewhere. I am what I would consider a Normal Guy. I am a native Arizonan, sometimes we are called “Zonies”. I am in my mid 40′s and enjoy a great life. I am self employed and have a wonderful daughter and Partner. Although I would say my life is a fairly normal one, I am also quite lucky in that I have the ability to travel and enjoy the world, I enjoy learning about other cultures and experiencing the world around us. I want to be right upfront about the type of travel I enjoy and the type I don’t. You will probably not ever read a story of about me backpacking my way through the serengeti during the height of summer, nor will you probably read any stories of me sleeping in the presidential suite of the Ritz Carlton in Paris. I am not a budget traveler, nor am I an uber luxury traveler, I fall somewhere in the middle, where most people fall I believe. I started this blog for the sole purpose of sharing my stories, my views and my excitement for traveling around this world with my friends, family. However it doesn’t stop there for me, I also wanted to make friends with others around the world, those who travel and those who dream of travel. Blogs and Websites evolve over time, mine will no doubt expand over time as well please come back and see what has taken place. However if you have come to my blog to schedule a flight or a hotel, this is not the place.

What a Wonderful World

Sometimes I forget how wonderful a world it really is.  I often go back and thumb through photographs that I have taken over the years, in all the wonderful places i’ve visited.   I am by nature attracted to color and nature.  Sometimes I wish I could just travel around the world taking photographs of all the beautiful things, but I have to make a living and I am not a very good photographer.  From time to time I get lucky and snap a picture that I think is outstanding, I wanted to share a few of these with you today.  When I take the time to review my photo library it makes me smile.  Every one of these pictures immediately takes me back to that time and place and puts a smile on my face.

The video below is predominately nature shots that have been taken from my travels around the world.  There are two pictures in this mix that I did not take, a very good friend of mine did and I thank him dearly for them.  I have nearly 8000 photographs in my library.  Every now and then when I am feeling restless, feeling that I need to board a plane to some far off place but simply can’t do it, I travel back in time through these pictures.  This is one of the beauties of travel, a photograph can move me, can transform my mood and restlessness, it can take me back to that great moment in time.

I hope you enjoy these pictures as much as I enjoyed taking them (I suppose that’s too much to ask).  Turn up the volume and listen to this beautiful and fitting song.

Happy Travels
