Welcome to SKJ Travel ... my narrative travel blog where you can join me vicariously as I adventure around the world. I tell my stories through both words and photographs. People say to me all the time, "You should write a book about your travels." Well, my friends, this is essentially it. And in this age, an online blog is easier, displays a bajillion more photos, needs no publisher, and reaches a broader audience than in print. The down side: unlike a formal book or essay, I'm just writing casually off the top of my head, but I hope, dear readers, you will feel as if I'm having a conversation with you.  In the archives you'll find personal posts from some of my travels. To read my formal articles visit one of the blue buttons above or see the Travel Essays section (right side below archive -- mostly documentaries). If you're joining me on a mobile phone, click HERE to quickly access the archive and essays. Friday Photos are updated weekly, and Tuesday Tales are updated sporadically.
