My selfie from Phuket, Thailand

My selfie from Phuket, Thailand

Hello, my name is Jay, and I would like to welcome everyone to my website! Please click HERE to reach my blog page where you can find all my stories of my travels to Southeast Asia. Also, please feel free to “Like” my Facebook page, Jaydtravelphotog, where I always share my new posts, along with photos I sometimes add, and comments I put out about travel that don’t always get posted here.

I hope some of you will subscribe to my blog at the bottom of this page, and also on my “Blog Page,” for my email alerts too, letting you know when I have posted new stories. In addition, I would LOVE to get comments and feedback if my posts motivate or help you in any way!

I am very passionate about travel, and traveling in Asia has brought me some of the most amazing, richest experiences I have ever had in my life. I hope some of you will take that first step and travel to new countries, and new continents, like I did. I don’t think you will ever regret it, I know I haven’t.

Meeting new people, learning new cultures, eating new food, figuring out how to get around, understanding the currency, and all the other everyday necessary needs and desires are some of the most exciting parts of traveling. Some of these things can be a bit overwhelming…like how do I get OUT of the airport and to my destination without getting scammed by a taxi driver, or maybe even getting on the wrong bus! Where should I exchange my money? Is the food okay to eat? Will I get sick?

I am excited to write about these things, and by telling you my experiences, they might even help some of you, by me telling you what I did right OR wrong. I’m also hoping while I write about these adventures, maybe I can make my stories fun for you, and give everyone a sense of what it is like to travel to exotic places around the world!

At some point in time I will also be adding a cart to sell my photos, like the photo above from Nai Harn Beach on the island of Phuket, in Thailand. Anything anyone would like in My Image Gallery will also be for sale, upon request. I have many, many photos from more recent trips to South East Asia that I have not added yet, and they will also be made available in my cart and my gallery, so please continue to check my website for updated photos.

I am also going to include some of my photos from the Pacific Northwest and northern California. I hope everyone enjoys the photos I have taken. I really enjoy showing what the inner cities are like, along with some of the more beautiful landscapes of the countries I have visited.

I would also like to provide everyone a link on my “Welcome Page” to a website of a great friend of mine. Ha Nguyen is from Vietnam, and is an aspiring tour guide. She is an awesome person and I would trust her with my life. She took me to a lot of great places around Vietnam, along with her partner Hoa Quan. The two of them are also amazing at navigating the crazy, busy, motorbike filled streets of Ho Chi Minh City, and can give you the experience of a lifetime. My hope is if any of my followers travel to Vietnam, you will check out their service. So, without further ado, here is a link to Ha’s site: wearefamilytours.com.

To wrap things up here, I would again like to welcome everyone to my website, welcome to my blog, and as I mentioned above, I hope I can convince some of you to take the plunge…there’s really nothing quite like a new adventure to a far away, exotic country across the world from where we live!
