An Eclectic Collection
This is a collection of editorial and commercial travel photographs from places I’ve had the amazing fortune to have spent some time visiting, working, or, even living. I am unapologetically addicted to traveling. Travel takes me out of my comfort zone. It challenges me and forces all my senses to adapt to new surroundings and solve whatever hurdles that inherently arise when I’ve left my comfort zone.
More importantly, traveling allows me to engage with local people, appreciate their cultural expressions and listen to the stories they tell.
I was born in Los Angeles but have had my base camp in Sweden since I was a young teenager. To this day, I still think Sweden is the ultimate place to begin and end a journey. Especially after visiting densely populated cities in Africa, Asia and, America
I’ve no way to even try to calculate all the miles I’ve traveled since that first trip. According to the Google Travel Map I’ve created and published below, I’ve so far visited at least 300 cities in 60 different countries. Hope to add a few more…
If I had to pick a favorite European destination it would be easy: Portgual. Portugal has much of what I enjoy when I travel. Great food, friendly, laid-back locals, a stunning, surf-friendly coast, and, a super interesting cultural heritage expressed in just every imaginable, visual, audible, editable way.
A favorite African destination is South Africa. What an amazingly diverse country it is! When you combine all that country’s cultures with all the wild animals and its relaxed and friendly hospitality, SA is simply irresistible. It was in a small fishing village called Gaansbai (east of Cape Town) that I went cage diving with Great White sharks, which in turn sparked my decades-long career as a travel journalist
My first solo trip to Asia was in 1988 and went to Thailand. Like others, I wanted to explore the beaches in the south and the mountains up north. And like so many, many travelers, I fell in love with the “land of smiles”. Thais are hands down the friendliest people in the world and I’ve visited their country almost every year since that very first time in the late eighties. Asia is so big but I’ve been lucky to have visited most of the countries on the continent. Number two and three on my favorite list is Japan followed by Vietnam.
In North America, I’m going to be a patriot and say the US of A. Not so much for its whacky societal expressions. More for the country’s incredible geography of which I’ve seen only a fraction but hope to experience more.
South America and Australia are unvisited but on my list. Not to mention Antarctica.
