Things I Travel With

Never before has the importance of what I take with me on a trip been so high. What does one take with them for a year? Things that last, clothes that won’t fall apart, shoes that will make it over pavement and mountain passes, accessories that go with everything, a camera to record it all and bags that will hold everything on my back with ease. Some of my necessities are listed below. I’m just setting out, so this list may change as time goes by.

The Journey Begins

What places would you visit if given the chance to travel the world? I’ve had a list accumulating for sometime, swirling in the background of my mind if ever the opportunity arose. I want to see the cherry blossoms bloom in Kyoto, climb over the tree entangled ruins of Angkor Wat, stand atop the white cliffs that make up the Seven Sisters in England, and hike the Quiraing in the green fairyland called the Isle of Skye in Scotland. I once thought I’d get to see these things over the span of a lifetime and even then they were just dreams. Things I added to a list of somedays and maybes that were put off until the right moment called… until now.

Camera Strap by Tap & Dye

I was very excited to receive my new camera strap from Tap & Dye in the mail the other day. I did a lot of searching to find something that would compliment my new Fujifilm XT-1. I wanted something made well, comfortable, and that had a vintage vibe. My legacy leather strap is all of that and more.
