I was less than a year old when I boarded my first plane. It wasn't a holiday trip, I was going home. Or to the place we were supposed to call home from then on. Across an ocean for a stop in Europe then across another one to stay in North America. Not everything turned out as planned; I crossed the Atlantic more times than I can count since then. For a brief period of time I thought I've had enough of traveling. That's when I looked at the world map, mentally shading in my visited locations; over 80% of it was empty. I got my first DSLR around that same time.

Born in Singapore, raised in Ukraine, and based in Toronto, I can normally be found anywhere from the shores of Lake Ontario to the highest accessible peak of the Alps.

One at a time, discovering the hidden and not-so-hidden gems of the world.

Welcome, and enjoy the adventure!
