“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” – Lao Tzu.

Howdy. I’m Ryan, and this is my blog. I started it in January 2008 as a sort of chronicle of my travels and thoughts. After nearly 10 years working in the IT industry in various roles, I had what could be described as a “moment of clarity”, and so decided that it was time to leave the corporate world behind and spend a bit of time traveling in the Aussie countryside picking fruit and enjoying the Great Outdoors.

Since then, my blog has kind of metamorphosed into a sort of ‘op-ed column’ for news and current events, along with giving me a place to share other bits of cool information about subjects I find interesting. If you want the full story, then start in the post archives, otherwise you’ll probably be scratching your head at the stream-of-consciousness rambling going on on the main page. Also, check the photo gallery if you like a visual record of what’s been happening. You’ll also find a few images from my other travels in Europe and elsewhere once I get around to putting them up.
