Where I’ve Been

By all accounts I’m a pretty young guy who has lead what a good number of people would consider a privileged life. I am not about to deny it. I consider the ability to travel and see the world as a luxury that not everyone has the time or money to do. I’m not in a position to travel indefinitely but if I could I would! I’m happiest when I’m on the move and I feel so relaxed when just literally slotting into the world and watching every bit of it zoom past me; taking it all in at my own pace – preferably with a cold beer and good company.

Street Art

I’m a massive fan of street art. I love finding what people have created and I’m always bowled over at the talent and the life and character that it gives a place. Below are some of my favourite pieces – whether they are murals, paintings, sculptures or even just a snapshot of life that I’ve found on my travels.

Panoramas

I love taking photos and one of my favourite types is the panorama. Trying to capture a whole scene and getting that cool fish eye effect to me is really awesome. Below are some of my favourite panoramas from my travels. All were taken on an iPhone 5. They don’t quite capture how great some of these places are but they look cool nonetheless. I hope you enjoy them and for the hell of it let’s see who can tell me where these are from!

Washington D.C.

Washington D.C. is the political playground of the United States, home to more memorials, epitaphs, tombs and monuments than I’ve seen anywhere else. D.C is small and can be covered in a few days tops, that is unless you’re a huge museum geek, in which case you may need a few extra days. I feel the beauty of DC lies in it’s layout. It’s simple and to the point. You can easily walk from sight to sight with ease.

Boston & Providence

When I think back to my reasons for coming to the USA for the first time, it was primarily for the universities. I had this grand dream that I could graduate in the UK and then go on to do a PhD Stateside, but now travel is what dominates my dreams practically on a daily basis and let’s face it travel is a far more practical (and certainly cheaper!) option. But when I was dreaming of USA study, I thought it would be good to go and see some of the best universities not only in the USA but also the World. So I choose to fly into Boston to see Harvard, MIT and then I could pop over to Brown in Providence and Yale in New Haven before going down to New York for NYU and Columbia so that’s just what I did.
