About Us

Dear Readers;


Welcome to the About Us page, you are probably here looking for a little background on what this site is all about, and what we can offer you in the terms of travel and our travel experience.  We originally launched in Sept 2004, “Snipergaming.com” as the original creator of a very busy First Person Shooter site, where we hosted servers for Soldier of Fortune, Call of Duty, and Counter-Strike.  I was online gaming almost every free moment. We hosted Team Speak servers right in the house I lived in and we easily had more than 300 gaming members wearing our {Sn][per} tag.

My real-time life was a member of the Canadian Armed Forces where I served in the Navy for 20 years, and then about 8 years ago I retired.  I started traveling at that point, though I traveled the world in a Destroyer, I was now travelling with just a backpack, cameras and dive gear.  I lived in Cambodia, Thailand, Malaysia for about 5 years, and I spent one year driving a motor home down the west coast of Canada, the United States, and Mexico where I lived in the Baja California area for a year.

I have seen some of the most breathtakingly beautiful scenery,  sunsets, women, and marine life one can imagine.  I have fallen in love with Southeast Asia, with the simple way of life.  I have met amazing people from all over the world, Germany, England, France, and then the people from the various countries I have lived in.

Each and everyday, I have one foot on an aeroplane and the other in my everyday life.  I long to visit India, and then of course back to my beautiful Southeast Asia.  This blog is for those of us who love travel, love the beauty, and know that material things bring no pleasure other than the simple momentary gratification and then the need to have more.  I have lived in some very interesting places with literally a couple of pennies to rub together.

My next place of wonder I wish to explore will be the Philippines, I want to get to know the culture, the land, and people.  So far I have been very impressed with the depth of the people I have met from this land.  I visited Manila once for a few days, while I was in the Navy.  I was in a bad way, the trip was terrible, filled with stress and concern. I only walked around some of the areas the boat was tied up at, and I did not give it a chance to steal my heart away…now I long to go back and fall in love once again with the amazing area of the world.
