Back Road

– Sean Jansen – The term “back road” is something that resonates with me on a deep level, something I strive for everyday with my photo and writing career.

Emerald Travels: Caribbean

  Caribbean Sean Jansen, Travel Columnist  When you are in the Caribbean, it’s hot, and sometimes it’s quite hard to get out of bed and convince yourself to do something in the heat of the day. The best move is to wait until the sun goes down and for that simmering daily temperature to drop. […]
