Summary
ABOUT THE WEBSITE

Once daily images from around the world.

ABOUT ME

Self-portrait of a hapless wanderer Who:   Pius Lee (aka travel guy). In my previous life, I worked as a database guru & web app programmer at CNET Networks.

What:   It began as a quest to backpack around the world but with the purchase of my first DSLR camera, I've redefined my travels to revolve exclusively around photography. With these photos, I hope to relate the beauty and uniqueness of foreign cultures that most viewers won't experience first hand.

When:   In 2003, I left my position at CNET to pursue my dream of backpacking around the world. At the time of writing (January 2009), I've completed nearly 6 years of continuous travel in 58 countries.

Where:   My initial plane ticket was a one-way trip from New York City to Casablanca, Morocco. Since then, I've reached the Eastern end of the Indonesian archipelago, almost entirely overland.

Why:   Travel and photography are two of my greatest passions. A budget traveling lifestyle allows me a way to pursue what interests me most in life. Without photography, I wouldn't travel. Without travel, I wouldn't photograph.

MISCELLANEOUS

I intend to keep the site updated daily. However, problems tend to arise when a website's upkeep competes with the inconveniences of budget traveling. The RSS feed or email notifications should suffice to keep you updated on newly posted photos.

Update (January 2010): After one year of maintaining this site, I've settled on an updating theme. Weekday photos will consist of real-time images of the country I'm currently traveling. Weekends, I take a break from that country to upload archived photos from the past.

Update (January 2012): I decided to take a break from daily uploads. Hopefully, I'll do some occasional uploads when my schedule allows.

SCHEDULES
  • Photo Updates: Daily @10pm Eastern (GMT -4)
  • Email Notifications: Wednesdays @3pm Eastern Time

Feel free to contact me with any suggestions or comments. Thanks for visiting this site.
