About Me

Doug Hansen, Nationally Syndicated Travel Writer

Doug's first camera web

Hi. I’m Doug Hansen and I want to thank you for visiting my travel site. By way of introduction, I am married, live in Carlsbad, CA, and have lived, worked or traveled in 80¬†countries. I’ve been doing photography since 1968, with an emphasis on my passion for nature and travel. I have an international MBA from Thunderbird, a degree in Accounting, and have been a financial advisor for over 10 years. Three times in my life I have set off with a backpack and traveled for over a year with an open agenda. Those special travel experiences gave me a tremendous sense of joy, peace and aliveness, so I decided to create this travel site to help others find that same level of exhilaration about life. I hope you find my trip photos and descriptions useful in planning your next adventure.
