A Photographer’s Eye and A Traveler’s Heart

One Couple’s Epic 21 Month World Journey

By Don Mammoser
In late 2010, professional photographer Don Mammoser began an open-ended, world-wide journey of discovery. He took with him just a backpack, a camera and one lens. A female acquaintance, Anya, from Russia accompanied him on a trial basis at first, then permanently after their traveling romance flourished.
Together, the couple moved non-stop across the earth for twenty-one months. They traveled as local people and with local people the entire time. This means that they rode on camels and elephants, in countless tuk-tuks, motorbikes, and on untold overcrowded buses. They went via dugout canoes, old bikes, kayaks, river tubes, and endless boats, ferries and other assorted floating devices. They survived numerous typhoons, food poisoning, a crashed motorbike, wildlife encounters, injuries, and decrepit Indonesian ferries. They were caught in angry oceans, often dealt with inhospitable immigration authorities and got eaten alive by more mosquitoes and leeches than they care to remember. They visited 28 countries on 4 continents.
During their travels, Don and Anya got engaged in Montenegro and married on the beach in the Dominican Republic. What began as a simple friendship between an American man and a Russian girl ended in an amazing partnership where these two vagabonds travel through life together, attempting to simply have an uncommon existence.
This book is one chapter in their story, told through gorgeous, full-color photography along with plenty of personal prose. When not travelling, Don and Anya live in Parker, Colorado.
