About me

20161101_123144_FotorMy name is Leon ‘Sparky’ Vonk, a young and aspiring photographer from Utrecht,┬áthe Netherlands. I have a passion for photographing historic places, beautiful landscapes and wild animals. Over time I have seen many countries and have been able to capture their beauties on camera. What started out as a hobby turned into a passion quickly and now, for the first time, I have started my very own website! My mission is to help people figure out what countries have to offer by telling my stories and showing my photo’s.


Besides travel blogs and photography I’m also a musician. Currently I am the lead singer of Progressive Rock/Metal band Epic Mind and have just released our debut album ‘Through the Labyrinth‘. I also write and perform as a singer/songwriter, and will at some point include that in my website.
