CHASING THE WANDERLUST

Travel & Photography

Hi. I am Howard, a travel and landscape photographer, writer, techie, educator and wanderer since forever. I'm not a twenty-something that quit my job to become a travel blogger - though that does sound romantic and inspirational. Since a very early age, I always had the urge to explore and learn new things. And discovering photography in my teens, I would document and capture the wonder of this ever changing world around me.

Discover my wanderlust through this collection of stories, photographs and other tidbits. Hopefully, they will inspire you to explore your own, whether it be around the world or just around the next corner.

At the top of my list of things to do while vacationing in Dorset was visit Durdle Door along the Jurassic Coast of south-central England. This huge limestone arch with a hole in it was created towards the end of the last ice age. And some of the exposed rock along this coast dates from the Upper Jurassic era of 150 million years ago... Durdle Door is the most noteworthy landscape feature along the coastal stretch known as Jurassic Coast.

Exploring London In A Day

Exploring London In A Day

We crossed over the London Bridge and walked back to the hotel along the north side of the River Thames. We stopped along the way to get a better look at the infamous Tower of London. The Tower is one of the world’s oldest and most famous prisons. Originally built in the late 11th century as a fortress to protect London and a royal residence, it soon become the preferred incarceration site for anyone deemed a threat...

Strolling The Seine

Strolling The Seine

Strolling along the River Seine is one of the most romantic things to do while visiting Paris. Take your time. Visit some, or all of the sites along the way. And be sure to wear comfortable shoes. This may be a leisurely walk, but it is not a short walk. To truly enjoy the many attractions, food, and atmosphere can, and probably will, take hours.

Dublin: The Black Pool

Dublin: The Black Pool

Dublin, for many visitors to Ireland, is a prime vacation destination. And it should be. Filled with a vast history, a charming character, and countless attractions including world-class museums, galleries and theatres, Dublin is Europe’s fourth most popular city destination. And don’t forget the fabulous shops, restaurants and pubs… I enjoyed our visit much more than I expected. And we didn’t even get to tour the Guinness Storehouse or the Irish Whiskey Museum.

Tour Of Port Stanley – All In A Day

Tour Of Port Stanley – All In A Day

Port Stanley is a quaint community in Elgin County, Ontario. Located south of London, Ontario on the north shore of Lake Erie. Though once an important route to other inland waterways during the 17th and 18th centuries, a commercial freshwater fishery and abundant tourism support the local economy of this village today. During the summer months, the large, sandy beach known as Main Beach attracts droves of vacationers, students and young families to the area.

Arc De Triomphe

Arc De Triomphe

Our second day in Paris started early with a visit to the Arc de Triomphe. After grabbing a baguette and espresso coffee at Boulangerie Pátisserie Rosa, we headed to the Metro. In many respects, this is the most efficient way to get around in Paris. Getting to the Arc was easy for us. Just one Metro line from Ménilmontant to Charles de Gaulle Étoile.

Stonehenge – Celebrating Solstice

Stonehenge – Celebrating Solstice

Stonehenge, the rock-forged monument in Wiltshire is an absolute must-see when visiting southern England. It should be on everybody's list. We booked our timed-tickets online two days before our visit. Timed-tickets are used to control the number of visitors to Stonehenge at any one time. One could just show up to purchase tickets (and many do), but pre-booking is the only way to guarantee entry on a particular day and time during tourist season.

Thomas Hardy’s Cob And Thatch Cottage

Thomas Hardy’s Cob And Thatch Cottage

Thomas Hardy’s cottage is a quaint, cob and thatch house that sits next to the Thorncombe Woods. Mostly, the cottage feels like it is in the middle of a gorgeous, fairy-tale forest. This is where Hardy was born in 1840 and lived until he was thirty-four. During this time, he wrote the classic novels Under the Greenwood Tree and Far from the Madding Crowd.
