Twipper of the Week: Travel Photographer Stephen Casey.
Current city: Sydney, Australia. I’ll always call Australia home, no matter where I live.
Total countries visited: 26, and itching for more!
What makes you interesting: My willingness to go anywhere and try anything. I love getting out of my comfort zone and off the beaten track! I currently work in feature films as an animator. I’m lucky that I not only consider it my day job, but my dream job. I like to reward myself after every project with a new destination to venture too!
What’s your Travanality: Maverick. I’d rather come home from traveling exhausted knowing I didn’t hold back or miss anything. I am full of energy when traveling. I’m up before the sun gets up and in bed well after it sets. I don’t want to miss anything.
What’s one thing you have no problem breaking the bank for when traveling: Activities and Adventures! I think the experiences you have on travels outweigh the things you’ll see if you don’t make the most of it. I have a rule to always come home broke.
What is your favorite mode of transportation when you travel: Anything that will get me there. Sometimes the best stories come from the journey there, so why not think of a crazy way to get somewhere!
What motivates you to travel: A desire to see and experience new things. After a long project, what better way to forget the stress than to travel somewhere. The more I travel, the more I get excited to travel again!
Who is the most interesting person you have met while traveling: Too many to name, but people with completely different cultures that I’m not used to. I could listen to them for hours. I’ve kept in contact with a lot of people I’ve met, I met the same people in different corners of the globe, and I’m blessed to be able to call people from so many different countries and cultures my friends.
What do you enjoy doing the most during your travels: Not being able to wipe the smile from my face. Knowing this is some place/person I’ve never seen before and I’ll have the memories (and photos) to last a lifetime, the stories I’ll be able tell, the experiences I’ve been able to experience. I’m smiling right now thinking about them!
Next travel destination: Fiji and New Zealand, just for starters. I have a long list of places I want to visit, but I try not to jump the gun too much. I limit myself to two trips ahead (no less). It makes me excited to continually add to the list!
