About my blog

I am a 30 year old blogger that considered writing a book before turning to this platform. I hope to build an audience that a book will appeal to, wherever you are. I greatly appreciate the likes, follows and feedback. Hello!

Travel blogger, amateur photographer, wondering wanderer.

I love to travel and I hope to visit every continent in my life. I am also constantly in my own head, trying to make sense of anything and everything. Some say that’s a bad idea.


I hope to give inspiration to someone somewhere. My blog is a little bit of a niche so I know I won’t appeal to the majority of the blogging world. I am not a religious person. I don’t like that we are promised reward after we die, I love to travel and live life with a little more urgency. Why not have fun today? A life without a belief system isn’t a castle built on sand and I want to prove it in my posts.

I am a curious blogger admitting ignorance and wanting to learn. I heard that the best way to become great at anything is to start believing you are wrong and learn how to put it right. Being a little skeptical in life opens doors that you have always been told to keep closed and this will hopefully be evident in my writing. Hopefully you will follow me on this blog, maybe even through the same doors.

Thanks for reading and make today awesome!

  1. It’s true. You woke up and found yourself in Uncle Bardie Country. Now that you have followed Uncle Bardie, you may find yourself at that fork in the road that you have to take. With Uncle Bardie for a guide, you can be comforted that you may stub your toe on a pun, find you can’t resist laughing at those things you never thought funny, and wake up to wonder what Uncle Bardie is up to. It’s okay. That itch can be scratched. Simply tune in to the next Post, It could very well be a doozy or not. Either way it will be coming from the whacky mind of Uncle Bardie. So thanks for following Uncle Bardie’s Stories & Such. It beats bananas any day. Unless…but that’s a whole ‘nother thang. And one last thing. Have a great day (or night, depending on your perspective).

  2. Thanks for choosing to follow my site Haiku Hound Sam. It is based in Melbourne. I was interested to check some of your posts about our famous city especially the MCG one. As a Collingwood supporter, most are born to follow the magpies I must say I was cheered to see you barracked for them as they defeated Melbourne. I was at the MCG for the 1970 Grand Final when Collingwood was sadly beaten by Carlton. That day saw the biggest crowd ever at the G, around 110,000. If you missed sunsets over the Bay and have time check some of my blog sunset photos. Cheers Denis

    • Nice to meet you! Thank you for stopping by my blog, I really appreciate it. I will take a look at yours.

      I loved the game, however it must have been amazing to be there with 110,000 other people! What an atmosphere. Hopefully I will get another chance to see a game before I leave.


  3. Hey Sam! Thanks for subscribing to my blog the Background, I am a retired city planner who recently finished a career of over 40 years – first to New Jersey in the latter half in St. Louis. With this background and growing frustration with the political and social environment that I decided to offer my comments to the public in hopes of enabling informed voters. I am a Democrat, self disguised as a social moderate and fiscal conservative. By the way I’m an avid photographer who travels around the countryside were cut short by stroke in 2012. I am a retired city planner who finished a career of over 40 years – the first half in New Jersey and the latter half in St. Louis
