As you've probably discerned by this point, my name is Tyler and I spend all the free time I can exploring the world around me. I have a beautiful and wonderful wife, Jessica, who is my best friend and travel companion. I've always loved traveling and in October 2014 I decided that it’s what I want to do with my life. I started a travel channel on YouTube and branched out into other social media to find other like-minded people, tired of the 9-5 lifestyle and ready to make more of their lives by exploring this wonderful planet. This website and accompanying blog is an extension of that YouTube channel and will give me a chance to express in writing more about who I am.
Since I was creating this website, I decided I also wanted to spend time on a few other things that I love; food & photography, because...well...it's my website and I can talk about whatever I want! I'm by no means a chef (barely even a cook), nor am I a “foodie”, but I love cooking and I love eating! My wife and I love to cook together, especially when we have a glass of wine or two while doing it! In my food blog, I’ll not only share what we cook, but also drinks we try, restaurants we go to, and anything else food related whether it be while traveling or at home.
Finally on this website, I will feature some of my photography. That being said, I am not a photographer. It would be a stretch to describe myself as an “amateur photographer”, but I thoroughly enjoy taking pictures and occasionally I’m lucky enough to snap a good one! I’m learning everything I can as I go and hopefully as I pick up tips and tricks along the way I’ll be able to share them with you!
So “why”, you may ask, is someone who travels for a hobby, doesn’t cook and isn’t a photographer starting a blog on travel, cooking, & photography? I’m a firm believer that people should never stop learning. Just because someone is out of school doesn’t mean they are done discovering. There are so many things to learn about in this world and at this stage in my life, these are three things that are important to me that I hope to explore and share with other people. I’m also willing to bet that you, my wonderful reader, are not an expert in the aforementioned three areas of interest and I hope that you’ll learn along with me.
In a few years from now, this blog could completely change the pace and become all about furniture making, playing piano, learning Latin and marathon running and if that happens, I hope you’ll join me in making those discoveries as well. Let’s get out there and see what this world has to offer. If we never make it, at least we’ll have the journey.
Be kind to each other,
