Welcome to Traveling-Trish

toesThis is it..It’s happening…

I’ve dreamed, visualized, and worked my tail off to get to this point…so here it is, MY FIRST OFFICIAL BLOG POST!  My greatest passions in life are now becoming real. No more dreaming or imagining, although I’m still pinching myself just to make sure.

First, let’s start with a little background about ME!  I bought my first DSLR in July of 2015.  I always knew I had a passion for photography, but I didn’t know the fire that would light inside of me from the moment I held it in my hands and started snapping photos like a mad woman.  At the time, I was spending my summer traveling through Southeast Asia; Philippines, Singapore, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, and Thailand.  I have to admit, I had no idea what I was doing.  I had never touched a DSLR in my life, and I wasn’t even sure where to begin.  But anyone that knows me, knows I am persistent, and NEVER give up. This was the perfect opportunity to be surrounded by beauty and attempt to take amazing photos.  Well…..let’s be honest, average photos at best, considering my lack of knowledge.

In the two years I’ve had my DSLR, I’ve grown tremendously.  I’ve put in the work, done my research, completed courses, learned my camera, and have shot thousands of photos along the way.  I made the decision to quit my full-time job of teaching internationally and fully pursue my greatest passions in life; photography, travel, and writing.

57 countries later, here I am! A fire in my soul, making all of my dreams come true.
