In the past few years, I've acquired an interest in both travel and photography. In the fall of 2014, I traveled abroad for the first time and it completely opened my eyes to new places, culture, food, and just life in general. I never knew I'd love it as much as I did, and since then I've tried to make at least one major trip a year to a new place in the world. The love of traveling grew more and more and one place a year just wasn't enough. Between working for an independent advertising agency and living in one of the most expensive cities in the world, I feel fortunate enough to be able to make travel a part of my life. And after purchasing my first Canon DSLR a year ago and experimenting with photography more, I felt the need to bring the two together in one place.
