daily in a while images from around the world. My original intent was to learn Photoshop by forced daily image posts.
The Travel Guy abandoned a life as a database engineer & web app programmer at CNET Networks after realizing life is too short to sit behind a computer screen all day.
What began as a simple backpacking trip around the world, I've repurposed my travels to revolve around photography. With these photos, I hope to relate the beauty and uniqueness of foreign cultures that most won't experience first hand.
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 and circled the globe over 5 times.
I've been lucky to fund myself through a combination of ads from this site and photography passive income.
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.
Feel free to contact me with any suggestions or photo licensing requests.
Thanks for visiting!
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.
Photo Updates: Daily @10pm Eastern (GMT -4)

I humbly request you occasionally glance at the ads and click only if the advertisement genuinely interests you.
Clicking haphazardly on ads helps nobody in the long run.
