About Me

Hello, and welcome!

My name is Kenton de Jong, and I am a 31 year old Canadian with a love of travel.

Being from Regina, Saskatchewan, I'm used to big fields of wheat, corn, and mustard, as well as northern lakes, cold winters, colourful skies, and the Saskatchewan Roughriders. Although those things excite me, there's nothing like the feeling of going into a new city, exploring a new area, or learning something exotic about a far corner of the planet.

Last counted, I have been to over a dozen countries, and two dozen cities. Some are in Canada of course, but some are distant places London, Hiroshima, New York and Hong Kong. My goal is to see over a hundred countries, if my wallet allows me. Being a Buddhist, I believe the majority of troubles in this world are caused by people not understanding each other, either their religion or their political beliefs. Can you imagine a foreigner traveling to Canada in November and seeing people wearing strange red flowers on their jackets? Just because a culture is different doesn't mean it's wrong.

Since you're reading this anyway, than why not come and explore the world with me?

Feel free to add us on Facebook, Twitter and Instragram as well!

Thank you for checking out my blog!
