about me

I am in love with traveling. It’s probably an addiction, to be honest.

I am 34 years old – born and raised Vancouver, British Columbia on the Pacific West Coast of Canada. I am currently living in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. I have spent most of my adult life traveling the globe. Between 2005 & 2008 i traveled extensively, visiting over 30 countries and five continents. I got my first point and shoot (a small film camera – before the days of digital) at 18 years old, and took it on my first trip to Europe. My first digital camera – a very simple point and shoot with limited zoom – accompanied me to South America in 2005.

It was around this time I began collecting my photos and stories online; first writing for a friends blog, Flickr, a website on blogspot and now, i have collected my best of here, on the website that shares my name; Rob Sweatman dot com. I now usually travel with a SLR, a GoPro and of course the small camera everyone keeps in their pocket.  The smartphone has become an easy way to take a snapshot while travel.

Travel and photography has become a passion. I am always dreaming of my next trip..
