I suck at maintaining contact with people. I am sorry to all of the people that I should contact more but don’t. I could make the excuse that it is a time zone problem or that I don’t have enough hours in my day, but those are sub-par at best.

Cold in Beijing

These four images are from my time on Koh Rong Island in Cambodia. I had initially only planned to spend 5 days there, but it ended up being closer to 12. It was such a nice break to go somewhere that only had electricity for three or four hours a night, no roads or vehicles […]

These four images are from my time on Koh Rong Island in Cambodia. I had initially only planned to spend 5 days there, but it ended up being closer to 12. It was such a nice break to go somewhere that only had electricity for three or four hours a night, no roads or vehicles and good food. I spent my time with three people who I had become good travel friends with a couple countries back and we spent our time swimming, scuba diving and lounging. It was exactly what I wanted my vacation to be.

Vietnam – Danang and Saigon

I love to go to zoos. I love big animals that I don’t get to see in Canada. Growing up in Saskatoon, we didn’t have a zoo. We had the Forestry Farm. Occasionally they would have an exotic animal like a lion on loan, but usually it was a lot of Bison, Cows and other […]

I love to go to zoos. I love big animals that I don’t get to see in Canada. Growing up in Saskatoon, we didn’t have a zoo. We had the Forestry Farm. Occasionally they would have an exotic animal like a lion on loan, but usually it was a lot of Bison, Cows and other domestic animals.

The zoo in Beijing is sadly depressing. Many zoos are. Enclosures that are too small. Not enough stimulus for the animals. Shitty patrons who bang and yell and throw garbage. I need to go on a safari…

Island Paradise in Cambodia

I went to Cambodia with no real idea of what I wanted to do there. I had taken a flight from Vientiane Laos to Phnom Penh. All I knew is that I wanted to stay at a place called Eighty8 hostel and hang out at the Foreign Correspondents Club. I quickly heard of a place called Koh Rong. I was told that it was an island paradise like Thailand, but how the Thai islands were 5 to 10 years ago; quiet, clean and undeveloped. I was sold. I got the Phnom Penh sights out of the way and a few days later I was on a bus headed to what would turn out to be one of the best parts of my trip.

A little background of my time is South East Asia. I had met some fantastic people at the start in Thailand. We traveled much of the North and into Laos together. One quickly realizes that there are only so many places to go and see in the compact area that is S.E. Asia and you end up running into the same travelers quite often. I ended up keeping in touch with a handful of the people I had met. Graham, a Canadian, was one of those people. He was a fantastic traveling partner. Adventurous, fun and entertaining.

I had traveled to the island alone and spent six days taking in the sun, surf and food. I would wake up and swim, eat breakfast, and read. The nights consisted of chatting with other travelers, and drinking beer while eating BBQ by the fire. After six days, I was getting ready to leave when I got a message that Graham, Brittany and Nadja were on their way to the island. It was settled, I had to stay.

Graham, an avid scuba diver, waxed poetic about the places that he had dived and the ocean life that he had seen. It sounded magical. The four of us were suntanning on the beach when we spotted a sign and a couple of suntanned beachheads. Try Scuba for free. It was a done deal. The girls and I gave it a shot and as soon as my 15 minute dive was finished, I knew that I would not be leaving the island until I was certified…

Mexico Adventure

So what happens when you head to an all-inclusive resort in Mexico with 43 friends? Crazy madness. I have to give a shout out and thanks to Mark and Alanna for the killer time and all the help over the week. It was a blast to shoot your wedding. Now to tackle the editing of […]
