Travel

This is not a travel blog. However this blog was started while I was an MBA student and I went on exchange to China. This was actually the third country in which I has lived abroad, following Germany and Japan where I was a software developer and an English teacher respectively.

Having lived in Europe and Asia I’ve travelled those continents the most after North America. During my career in Canada I’ve worked and lived in: Victoria, Vancouver, Prince George, Yellow Knife, Calgary and Ottawa. You can of course read my resume, but if you really are interested in traveling this is the blog category for you.

After talking about it for many years I finally visited Scotland. Writing a series of blog posts on that trip is what inspired me to redo my taxonomy and focus my blogging exploits on the topics people are interested in. So if you have questions or thoughts on where I’ve lived and traveled you can read this blog category or contact me using email or social media.
