It has been a hot summer here so far, and since I won’t be traveling anywhere anytime soon I thought it would be nice to reflect on the last few years of travels. I don’t think we always realize how lucky we are to have ever traveled since there are still plenty of people out there who still haven’t even gotten the chance to get on an airplane. The places we go and the experiences we have are ours to cherish and keep with us forever.
Just like with a song or a certain scent, a photograph that is beyond Instagram can take you back to a specific place or linked memory. Sometimes they can be bad memories, but for the most part we remember all the good times in our lives. Looking back at my travel photos show and remind me of my courageous adventures, independency to figure things out on my own even when I didn’t always understand the languages, curiosity that had driven me to take risks, and provoked the aesthete side of me in different ways.
We all have that trip or vacation that has changed or moved us for the better. Once we get on that plane into the unknown of a different country we are not the same person we once were. Our third eye awakens and everything we once thought we knew about goes completely out the window – of course in the best way possible.
Tokyo, Japan |2011 – My everyday scenery for almost a month.
Montréal, Canada |2011 – Poutine, pretty much a must in this metropolitan city…I wonder if it comes in vegan form now.
New York City, USA |2012 – One my favourite times because I got to meet dirty spider-man.
Dominican Republic, Samaná |2013 – It was one terrifying boat ride to get to this secret island but so worth it!
Naples, Italy |2013 – A horrible time to come here (end of August) since nothing was opened.
Sorrento, Italy |2013 – Was on a mission to find this abandoned mill – mission accomplished.
Positano, Italy |2013 – I pretty much already died and gone to heaven. THIS IS HEAVEN.
Rome, Italy |2013 – Flipping my hair in front of the Coliseum on this scourging hot day.
Madrid, Spain |2014 – A reminder of when I followed my heart.
Toledo, Spain |2014 – I didn’t get the chance to take many photos here because I was having a blast. By far the most romantic place I’ve ever been to.
Barcelona, Spain |2015 – I just adored the simpler things.
What has been one place you’ve been to that has changed you forever?
