Who Am I?

Max Wanger
Max Wanger

I’m Max Wanger. Long time software engineer and hobby photographer turned full time travel junkie. For years I sat at a desk staring at a screen for 10+ hours a day. After saving for several years, I decided to quit my job and pursue life on the road.

Sipping a fresh brew

For the last several years I’ve been living in Bali and just recently decided to chronicle my travels. I enjoy the simple life. Picking and harvesting my own coffee and conversing with the locals on a daily basis.

I also love adventure. Here I am scuba diving with an enormous sea turtle off the cost of Malaysia. I’ve been living in Asia for the past 3 years, and can confidently say that it’s my favorite country on earth. It’s cheap, the people are friendly, and the culture is vibrant. It has everything you need!

Visiting a waterfall in Iceland

I love experiencing people and culture, but I enjoy nature above all. There’s nothing more invigorating than plunging into a frosty waterfall in Iceland!

Wherever life takes me I try to fully immerse myself in each experience. Hot or cold. Good or bad. Every second is an opportunity to learn something new in this brief life. To be fully present. To be connected. This is to experience life.
