Brendan van Son
I am a travel writer and travel photographer from Rocky Mountain House, Alberta, Canada. After completing degrees in both Political Science and Human Geography with specialization in Latin America and the developing world, I decided that it was time to discover the world beyond the pages of textbooks and university lectures. I have decided to let the streets be my classrooms, everyday people become my teachers and the world my jungle gym. Beyond my own personal website I have written for a number of travel magazines and ezines. My photographs have appeared everywhere from print magazines to a variety of advertising agencies. I have now been on the road for nearly three years straight, and my itchy feet continue to push me to continue to explore this wonderful world we live in.
“If travel really is what you want to be do doing then go out and do it. If you seek guidance you need not look further than your own desires. If you need support your friends and family will always be there for you. And if you need a hand, those who have set the trail ahead of you will always be there to lead you or, more importantly, remind you that it’s alright to burn your own path.” – Brendan van Son “How I made Travel a Career“
“I live without a a path to guide me.But I am not lost, I know exactly where I am…It’s only that I don’t yet know where I’m going.” – Brendan van Son
“the journey has shaped it. The waters and minerals of the sea have made it smooth and flat. Regardless of whether or not it had been striving to reach this beach, it was the journey that moulded it into what it is today.” – Brendan van Son from “The Boy and His Skipping Stone“
