I don't remember when exactly I first met Jes, but I remember just about everything since that day! We met in the Chicago rave scene (when there was one) and have been friends ever since. She inspired me with her photoblog (which began many years before there was even the word "photoblog") and encouraged me to share my own photography on the web to the open public. My first public photo post was in the rearview section of Gapers Block (www.gapersblock.com) while she was on staff. She introduced me to photoblogger Naz (absenter.org) who I comissioned to make Whateverland become a reality!

The reason why this series is called the traveler is because Jes has just recently moved out of her messy apt and resigned from work to travel all across the world for an entire year. As much as I will miss having her around here in Chicago, I'm quite proud of her for the giant leaps she takes to keep life exciting!

Awww, thanks Archie! I can't believe how much stuff I had...it felt good to pare down.

So far, I love living in Berlin. It's an amazing city, with tons to see and do at all hours. Of course I am uploading pictures, but they's such a small sliver.

Thank you!

I'm jealous of you, Jes...being able to do something so free. Be safe in your travels.
