Hi there! Name’s Troy. I’m 22, live in Western Canada, and am driven to learn, explore, and understand more about the world.

I'm an atheist Secular Buddhist - sceptical, freethinking, and reflective. I have an INFJ personality, and match the description for that type rather well.

Things that I enjoy or take interest in include cartography, dogs, Gaelic, history, literature, meditation, everything about the natural world (botany, geology, palaeontology, and just getting out in the wild there to hike and travel), writing, and my wonderful boyfriend most of all! I hope you enjoy the pieces of myself I share here.

  • Welcome to Derinkuyu, an underground city that once housed up to 20,000 people. In the Cappadocia region of Turkey, famous for its cave dwellings and underground villages, Derinkuyu stands out for sheer size and complexity. Locals began digging in the 500s BCE. The city consists of over 600 doors, each of which can be closed from the inside. Each floor could be closed off as well. And just to make attacking completely impossible, the entire city was deliberately built without any logic. Its maze-like layout makes navigating the city nightmarish for unfamiliar invaders.
