One passionate photographer. One enthusiastic communicator. We’re on a year-long adventure wayfaring across Asia.

The Wayfarer’s Path is a photo-journal and record of our travels by road and rail across Europe and Asia. Join us as we share our experiences in the joys and pitfalls of world travel.

Seb will show you our travels with his skills in reportage, time lapse photography and photo-montage, while Tess will attempt to regale you with our triumphs, challenges and overall experiences in Asia for a newbie backpacker. 

Tessa is a Northern-California native and language lover who immigrated to Paris in 2004 for what was supposed to be just a year abroad. Ten years, seven tiny apartments and many kilos of foie gras later, she was still in the City of Light and found herself working as a communications manager in a steady corporate job.  A handful of trips around Europe and regular business travels allowed Tess to see what life was like in other places and cultures. Life was good…

…and then she met this world traveler and talented photographer who showed her the beauty of traveling afar with a backpack and camera.

Sebastien is a Parisian born with an insatiable case of wanderlust and happy curiosity wherever he goes. After receiving his first camera as a Christmas present 10 years ago, he jumped head-first into photography and turned his passion into a professional photo business.  Throughout the years, Seb has been on numerous backpacking trips around Europe, Asia and Africa, including visits to Portugal, Spain, Austria, Switzerland, Russia, Japan, Nepal, Thailand, Lebanon, Comoros and Morocco.

After road-tripping together in France and Europe, our dream of an extended world backpacking tour started to take shape. Together, we saved some money, said adieu to our jobs, and embarked on a year of wayfaring travel and adventures with one purpose: to discover the beauty and mystery of our world.
