The Web-Slinging Tourist: Episode 1


As it turns out, I do a lot of internet browsing during the week, mostly before I get out of bed in the morning. During these adventures, I find myself stopping to look at the most interesting things, much like a tourist. So, I’ve decided to share with my broader internet family some happy snaps from my browsing this week. Let me introduce: The Web-Slinging Tourist.
