I was very lucky that I got to live in some amazing places and travel quite a bit as a kid. This really instilled a love of travel and of other cultures. I enjoy learning about different cultures as well as learning the history and feel of different places.
I’ve managed to visit 5 of the 7 continents so far, and my goal is to visit all 7. Part of the reason I decided to pursue software development was the flexibility and freedom that you can find in your location and working hours. Eventually I’d like to live as a digital nomad for a while and explore some places in real depth.
I hope to post about some of the locations I have previously visited as well as about places I haven’t yet. I tend to do a lot of research when I decide I am interested in a new place and I think that sharing my process and what I find can be helpful for others. I also plan to talk about items I pack and how useful they are along the way.
I just want to say welcome to my blog! I hope that this becomes a place that people can learn about the things that I’m passionate about, and follow along with my journey through life.
My name is Ryan and I’m based in Boise, ID. I traveled and lived a lot of different places while growing up and that heavily influenced the things that make me happy. I am happiest when exploring a new place, usually with my camera in hand. I have so far been to 5 out of 7 continents with the goal of reaching all 7. I attended Boise State University to study Wildlife Biology but decided to shift my sights to another career. I hope to continue to use my photography to highlight conservation and other issues facing the world’s wildlife and our environment. I have focused my career goals in the technology field developing websites and software. This career should give me the freedom to work while I travel and pursue my photographic goals and see the world.
I plan to write about photography and conservation, travel and digital nomad lifestyles, and my journey to become a self-taught developer. If there are any questions or requests about topics, please let me know!
