Travelogues

When I was growing up my parents took my brother and I on various family road trips. Most of our destinations were across both eastern and western Canada, but we also made our way through many regions of the United States. All of these experiences gave me the travel bug, so as a university student I made my mandatory backpacking trip to Europe and then started to visit various parts of Latin America. As a historian, I have had to travel to several destinations across the United States, Spain, Italy, Mexico, and a few other countries in Latin America to work in archives and rare book libraries, a privilege that I do not take lightly. Throughout my peregrinations in the Atlantic world I have kept a few diaries, but in most cases all I have left are my photographs and a few fading memories. These travelogues – Chilangolandia and Farmannals – are an opportunity for me to reflect upon my travels over the years through both photos and texts, both geographically and chronologically.
