I’m Bobby, 35 years old, from Portland, Oregon, by way of Olympia, Washington by way of southern California. I must say I definitely don’t feel my age, probably because I have spent so many wonderful days in the classroom with awesome children. From 2005-2011, I was a math teacher at an independent middle school for “highly capable” children. That school, and that profession are dear to my heart. Now I am (finally) at a high school. Good times!
In 2011, I decided to teach conversational English in Hungary. I sold most of my possessions and went to Europe for two years. It unexpectedly ended up being only one year, and now I am back in the US, slowly transitioning back to the American life.
This blog’s inception coincided with my journey overseas, and was meant as a way to document life and travels in a foreign place. My life still feels like it is in a foreign place – just for different reasons. I like it — it gives me the opportunity to explore new places and discover my new surroundings.
This blog will continue with lots of photography and lots of thoughts. I love taking photos and I love processing them. You will still see me posting my photos of Europe on this blog, but I will now have the opportunity to present lots of photos from wherever life takes me. I invite you to keep following my journey!
