About

HeadShot

Hi!  I’m Dave Ply, a retired software designer/developer from Portland, Oregon.  Now that I’ve retired I have more time to try new things, like writing stories about some of the adventures I’ve had over the years, as well as adventures to come.  In addition to the travel adventures that will likely dominate this blog, I also enjoy scuba diving and photography – both will be making appearances.

The blog itself also qualifies as a new adventure, delving into the realms of creative non-fiction.  After a lifetime of more technically oriented writing, learning this style poses a new challenge.  We’ll see if the stories improve over time, and you’re welcome to follow along and comment from the sideline.  You don’t even have to be nice about it!  (Well, polite maybe.) There’s nothing like making a fool of myself in public to force me to learn quickly.

For you WordPress visitors, hearing from you gives me an excuse to check out your blogs as well, a discovery process that I suspect will lead to new worlds of entertainment, not to mention examples I can learn from. I look forward to seeing the how the discovery process plays out.

Dave

  3. I love it when I find a travel blog that is new to me, has all the ingredients that make me want to read more, with great photos too. I shall look forward to following your adventures, Dave.

    1. I agree. Blogs with good photography are nice. Blogs with good commentary are nice too. But blogs with both, especially when they focus on travel or adventure are the best. I will be following yours as well.

    1. Thanks Debbie. When you said “vivid” you made my day, that’s a little reminder I give myself when trying to write a post, especially since my default mode is more “tell” than “show”. As for following your blog, that was an easy choice, western Canada has a lot to offer and you present it nicely.
