Everyone’s got a Poo Story

It’s crazy to think that it’s been nearly 10 years since I made my first ever solo backpacking trip.  It’s a little bit embarrassing thinking back to the green traveller I was back then, the travel mistakes I made, the way I acted so naively, and of course, the times I got sick.  Since then, I’ve found myself ill more times than I can count.  From extreme issues like malaria in Central Africa to more typical...

Epiphanie Camera Bags Review

One of the things I started to notice on my latest trip around the world was that I am getting lazier with age.  Before, I’d have no issue packing all my camera gear wherever I went, and using my big backpack to transport it.  However, I noticed myself getting fairly lazy this time around.  I found myself wishing I had a smaller bag to toss over my shoulder rather than my brick of a camera backpack.  On top of that, I recently...

How to Take Photos from Trains: A Photo Guide from the Via Rail

For the second time in my life, I had the brilliant opportunity to take the VIA Rail across Canada from Toronto to Edmonton.  And well I would have loved to make the journey all the way across to Vancouver, I really can’t complain.  This trip always has a way of grounding me and allowing my stressed to wash away, or at least be put on the back burner for a while.  I thought, that since I did a general article on the train...
