Welcome!

I'm Nick, a writer-photographer and self-professed travel addict (full bio here). I hope the tips and stories on this site will inspire and help YOU to travel MORE!


My obsession has taken me to 45 countries, and I've been living in Taiwan for the last 10 years.


I'm especially interested in "spiritual" sights, from temples and pilgrimages to centers of the great faiths and places of immense natural beauty.


I also practice a traveler's meditation and I'm a tea lover.


I've got a book about Taiwan and photography for sale, and I donate a % of my earnings to charity.


Read on and join me on this great journey of interconnection and self-discovery!
