Hi, I’m Ryder.

I’m a world traveler, graphic designer, camp counselor, scientist, immunologist, student, teacher, pilot, and whatever else I decide to be this week.

I was born in Canada, but call quite a few places around the world home. I’ve been fortunate enough to take advantage of many opportunities placed in front of me, and have created some opportunities of my own by living and working abroad.

I’ve got an educational background in science, but am currently working out of the field – as it’s a bit difficult to be a travelling scientist. I’d like to eventually return to it, but only after I’ve had my fill of worldly adventures.

I’m currently travelling all around the world, and I want to show you how it can be easier than you might think. I started my blog, RYDAWAY, as a way to remember all my travels, tell my stories, and offer advice to anyone who happens across it. Feel free to leave a comment, ask questions, or share anything that I’ve posted here. Best of luck, and happy travels!

Where I’ve Been

While I haven’t been everywhere, I’m working on it! The more I travel, the more I realize there’s so much to see. I’ve got two continents left to do; South America, and Antarctica.
