Welcome to the Blue Eyed Explorer! I have created this website with a purpose – to help educate, motivate and inspire people on travel and related topics in their daily lives.
Optimistic Perspective of Travel
My belief is that travel is so much more than touring to the most popular landmarks. It is an opportunity to delve fully into an entirely new culture – a culture with different customs, traditions, and celebrations. Travel gives us the opportunity to see the remaining pieces of ancient civilizations from generations long before. This gives us the ability to put ourselves in another’s shoes and walk through an entirely different lifestyle.
The Backpacker Lifestyle
I find the best way to travel and experience the world around me is by backpacking. Backpacking helped me appreciate a minimalistic lifestyle. I have realized that life is more about the experiences you have, the people you meet, and the memories you make. Backpacking has also has helped me appreciate the life I have as a traveler and made me into a storyteller with much to say.
Traveling has helped me realize that we are not all that different from one another and to appreciate where I come from but also to help me understand that the world is a vast place with so much to offer. The travelers’ lifestyle has made me grateful to have the health and drive to be able to climb the highest peaks and dive to the lowest points on our planet. I wish to always tell the stories that need to be told through my words and through my photos. To be able to capture something special from behind a lens and to be able to tell a story through a single shot is a unique skill that I wish to further develop.
Travel: A Ticket to Freedom & Happiness
With the hustle and bustle of life, I wish to use this platform as a message to the people. A message to get out from behind that desk and explore the world. To use this one, beautiful life as a ticket to freedom, to do and see as much as they possibly can. A message to open their eyes to the world around them. To be intrigued by the unique cultures, delicious foods, and most breathtaking landscapes. To run outside, to dance in the rain, and to fill their lungs with the fresh air of the great outdoors.
I use my photos to create that wanderlust to get people out of their comfort zones to experience life. I want to tell a story and send a message to the people. A good photo has the ability to portray something that could not otherwise be depicted through words only. Photos can help inspire people to create the life they want and to live for the extraordinary. To not take life for granted and instead see life as an opportunity that many others may not have. We should always try to cherish the people in our lives and not judge the stories we do not understand. To see life for all it is and to use it as a ticket to let creativeness and curiosity shine.
It is too often that people are too frightened to chase after their dreams and end up settling into the ordinary, filled with wonder of what could have been. I wish to use my words and photos to help the people… live.
