Start Here

Landscape with quote: There's a whisper on the night-wind, there's a star agleam to guide us, And the Wild is calling, calling . . . let us go.

Do you see photos of stunning cities or wild mountain landscapes and say “Heck, I’d love to see that!”? Do you want to go to so many places that you don’t know where to start? Or can’t imagine how to fit it all in with your limited vacation? Or shiver at the thought of planning out a trip in the first place?

I get it!

Travelling while working full-time can get tricky, especially if you’re hoping to see the world. But it doesn’t have to be!

With the right itinerary, some savvy planning and an open mind, you can travel to amazing places around the globe, while working full-time.

I work in the media industry. Despite the long hours, I enjoy it very much, but like most, I long to see the world. With a mandated two-week yearly vacation and about 100 days of weekends, I decided that a full-time job won’t reign in my dreams.

So I started to see my weekends as two-day vacations.

I would like you to see that too.

My Wandering Voyage’s mission is to help full-time working millennials explore and capture the world through trip planning, destination inspiration and photography tips.

Trip Planning

Silfra - The Golden Circle is a well-known destination in Iceland, and it’s easy to see why. The Golden Circle is part of a road loop that can be seen in a day from Reykjavik and hits some of Iceland’s most famous landmarks | My Wandering Voyage travel blog

Flights? Transportation? Accommodation? Where to go? What to see? WHAT TO PACK?! Holy guacamole there’s a lot of planning that goes into travelling.

Trip planning can be intimidating and discouraging when you’ve got so many things to take into account, especially when you’re dealing with a new country you’ve never been to before.

Even I get nervous when I land in a new place!

Here are some resources to get you started on planning the trip of your dreams:

Travel Photography

Iceland - Thank you 2017 for being stellar, here’s to 2018 and many more travel experiences ahead! | My Wandering Voyage travel blog

You’ve visited Rome or taken a trek to see Iceland’s waterfalls. But when you go to show your family and friends a few snaps from your trip, you’re disappointed with how the photographs have turned out.

I have been there!

I started fiddling with my camera almost a decade ago. Since I was in the media field, I learned quickly ways to take great photos – I’ve even won some awards! (*happy dance*)

My philosophy is great photography does not come from expensive equipment but from a trained eye. Some of my favourite snaps have been from my cell phone.

But the skills I’ve acquired come through research and practice. I can’t wait to share my passion for capturing great travel photographs with you!
