About Ken

Thanks for visiting kensaysgotravel.com. My name is Kenneth, but I use Kenny, and everyone just calls me Ken! I’m a tech worker living and working in Canada. Specifically, in the city of Markham, just outside of Toronto.

I’ve always had a bit of the travel bug in me. Admittedly, unlike some from the blogosphere universe, I’m not a full time traveler. Instead I’m an occasional traveler, doing my best to get the most out of my trips abroad with my girlfriend, Cindy. Like most people, we work hard all year and look forward to the 3-4 odd weeks of vacation days (give or take a week – that should probably cover most of us).

We both enjoy the style of independent style of travelling and with our limited travel time, researching and planning is essential. Luckily, we both love to plan our trips – in detail. For me, half the fun is in the research and planning phase! Cindy and I can be both extremely detail oriented, so that helps.

This blog will be our structured repository for our travel tips, research and thoughts.

With no journalism background of any kind, but instead armed with process-oriented minds, this is our attempt to inspire and to arm you with knowledge for some independent traveling. I sincerely hope you find something of value.

To be that prepared independent traveler, you need to plan, plan and plan, and you need to research, research, and research.

kensaysgotravel.com attempts to be a resource by having articles that are very tightly focused, combined with some generic articles.

It will shed light on a variety of subjects that may not have occurred to the reader, to relay the nitty-gritty as I experienced it. Though the same topics may have been covered elsewhere, there are times when I never find it to be enough and always have more questions about it. Ultimately, I believe my viewpoints and experiences can supplement what I read elsewhere (online or offline). I actually believe I can add another angle to it, to provide a different take on it with my own set of insights and details. You tell me if kensaysgotravel.com has managed to achieve this objective.

So I say, “Just Go, Go Travel”. You’ve planned it, you’ve researched it, you’ll love it!
