Blog: The Adventures of a Seductive Life

This blog is my place for my musings on the world. Thought provoking, informative, whimsical, educational or at times controversial.

Photography: Spirit of a Seductive Life

A showcase of my photography. The artistic expression of the life that has seduced me, a hint of the spirit of the world as I see it.

Ye Olde Blog: My Original Travel Blog

For the first year of my trip I wrote a near daily travel blog of my adventures traveling the Americas on a motorcycle. Here you can find pictures, travel stories, advice and information about the origins of my travels. No longer active but not forgotten!

Adventures of a Seductive Life

I have been thoroughly seduced by my own life. It is the life of a world traveler, permanent nomad, roving treasure hunter, wandering tango & salsa dancer, scoundrel adventurer, overland motorcycle traveler, exploring photographer, errant software engineer, accidental mystic, vagabond romance artist, itinerant raconteur and rambling musician. It is a life as deeply flawed as it is beautiful and I love it for the former at least as much as the later.

What I post here is purely for my own amusement. Stories from my travels, photographs that illuminate how I see the world, travel tips that may help you start your own adventure traveling the world and philosophical essays. The topics I present may at times be shocking, unpopular, highly controversial and self contradictory, for which I offer no apologies.
