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 quit my job in 2016 after working in the I.T. field for 8 years and saving up. Since then I’ve never looked back, I’ve seen so much, met some amazing people, and have learned a lot.

The site is still rather new (2 years now), so it is still growing and I plan on it to continue for a long time. If I decide to stop traveling for a while the site will continue and I will welcome more guest posts as well.

My goal for this site is to share my adventures and some interesting stories I’ve experienced along the way. I hope you enjoy the site and can find some entertainment and useful tools here. Thanks for visiting!
