Welcome to WOW.

Webster’s defines “wow” as a word “used to express strong feeling (as pleasure or surprise)”. says the word is used for “Expressing astonishment or admiration”, and Collins says it is “an exclamation of admiration, amazement, etc”.

Who am I to argue?

I didn’t know it at the time, but I took this trip to find the “wow”, and as you can imagine, traveling the world is a good way to discover some of this so called wow. I wouldn’t say that I’m the worlds harshest critic, but I’ve been around, and I’ve seen some great things. Prior to this trip I’ve experienced the wonder of Niagara Falls, the beauty of a fresh snow fall on Christmas Day, the wonder of beautiful islands in the Caribbean and beyond, the majesty of London, England, the feeling of standing on the very tip of a cruise ship as it cuts through the water and the awe of a clear nights sky, among other things.

To put it simply, I’m not easily impressed anymore. And that’s kind of sad.

It’s so cool to take someone to see Niagara Falls for the first time, or to the top of the CN Tower. You see the wonder in their eyes, the excitement around every corner… and I missed that. To see it, but not really be able to feel sucks.

So without realizing it, that’s what I wanted to find on this trip. And I found it. A lot. On this trip I’ve taken well over 8000 pictures, but I wanted to highlight some of the “wow” moments, places and times for me – so that is what this page will do.

Keep an eye out for it.

Let me know what you think.
