      Welcome to DelsJourney.com, one of the world's first travel/photo blogs.  My name is Del Leu and I created this travel website in 2001 to describe my year-long trip around the U.S., the South Pacific, New Zealand and Australia. 

      After returning home and for 15 years afterwards, I continued posting stories here to describe my travels around North America, Belize, the Middle East and Southeast Asia.  As a result, this eclectic website, which is chock full of captivating nonsense, fascinating drivel, and humorous blather, now has 542 pages.  And best of all:  No ads!

      I hope you enjoy DelsJourney, one of the "granddaddies" of all travel websites! 

  

My website's three most visited pages last year were:

1.

The Battle of the Coral Sea

2.

Schuyler, Virginia:  The Real Walton's Mountain

3.

The Best and Worst Places in America

    

      I'm at my home in Portland, Oregon and since 2017, I've been doing computer mapping work for a local government agency.  I have more travels and adventures planned though, so stay tuned!

      After posting over 500 pages on DelsJourney, I wrote my final entry in 2016.  For the previous three years I had lived in Qatar, a small country in the Middle East, where I did computer mapping work.  I moved back to the U.S. in March 2016 and took an eight-month road trip around America.

      I love mapping, so the theme of my 2016 road trip around America was  "Extreme Geography."  During my 32,235-mile trip, I became the first person to visit all 16 extreme geographic compass points of the contiguous United States. 

     I created a new travel website, ExtremeGeographer.com, to describe my travels.  So if you'd like to read about my recent adventures, please check it out.

Two roads diverged in the wood, and I I took the one less traveled by.  And that has made all the difference.
