Travel

Like a lot of people, I have a great passion for travel, which goes well with my passion for photography. But perhaps unlike a lot of people, I’ve been fortunate to travel to many dozens of countries, especially as a child, youth, and young adult. I was born in England, and grew up there and in Ghana, Australia, and then Canada, and became a Canadian citizen as a teenager. Since then I’ve lived in the United States and Canada, and again in England. My wife is Japanese and we travel there too. Countries I’ve visited include the following: 

  • Australia
  • Austria
  • Belgium
  • Bosnia and Herzegovina
  • Burkina Faso
  • Canada
  • Croatia
  • Denmark
  • Egypt
  • England
  • France
  • Germany
  • Ghana
  • Greece
  • Hong Kong
  • India
  • Iran
  • Israel
  • Italy
  • Japan
  • Lichtenstein
  • Luxembourg
  • Macedonia
  • Mali (yes, I’ve actually been to Timbuktu)
  • Mexico
  • Netherlands
  • Niger
  • Nigeria
  • Norway
  • Philippines
  • Serbia
  • Singapore
  • Slovenia
  • Sweden
  • Switzerland
  • United States
  • Yugoslavia

To me, though, more important than all the places one has visited is the attitude of being a tourist in your own back yard (in every good respect). In that sense, I always try to make the most of every nearby travel opportunity as passionately as opportunities that are much farther afield. That being said, I do have a few distant locations that I'd still badly like to visit:

  • Alaska
  • Easter Island
  • Galapogos
  • Iceland
  • Ireland
  • Israel (again)
  • Morocco (and Gibraltar)
  • New Zealand
  • Peru
  • Turkey
