Welcome to Traveling Ken, a blog about my travels featuring my encounters with local food, random findings, adventurous tales, and photo essays of some amazing locations. I also plan to help supply you with resources and guides that aid you in planning the bare minimums for a trip. In my personal experience, I find it’s best to plan very little and let your intuition guide you instead once you’re there. Pick a location and then just go! Trust me, there’s much more to do whatever your location might be, than you probably think!
My name is Ken and I knew I wanted to travel since I was about 7. I started this blog without much direction and after taking several trips I realized that I had developed my own way of traveling. Bare minimum planning! The more I plan, the less enjoyable it was, my imagination would blow something out of proportion and upon arrival, the sight was more realistic and not as fantastic as my preconception had predicted. When I planned very little, there were a lot more surprises in store and more hidden gems! Step-by-step is no fun; you already know whats coming… When you pick the destination and maybe a must-see sight here and there with very little else, you never what you’ll find! But, we all feel a little safer with some security, so that’s why I developed my own “bare minimum” approach to traveling and love it!
So far I’ve explored a good chunk of the USA, some of Canada, Japan, Vietnam, Singapore, Malaysia, and Cambodia!
