This Traveler's Life

See the world... and photograph it!

A Good Traveler does not Arrive

There is an ancient Chinese proverb written by Laozi, that a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. While the lesson may have been to help teach that all endeavors – great and small alike – have a beginning, I enjoy it at its most pragmatic level. Nearly three decades ago I took my first solo trip, and I have been traveling ever since.
