I love to take beautiful pictures when I travel. The world is so spectacular – it’s kind of impossible not to and there are days where I can’t wait to take out my camera and snap millions hundreds of photos. Okay, maybe not millions, but definitely a couple hundred. But, funny enough, not all of my favorite travel photos came from my DSLR.
What I love about taking photos while traveling is that it creates a concrete memory. Whenever you look back at that photo, you remember what you were doing, who you were with, and how amazing it was. It’s kind of like a little preview to your own personal movie. The better the experience, the more precious the photo is – even if it’s somewhat out of focus or slightly off centered. You don’t need a fancy camera to document your travels abroad. In the end, you travel for you, so you can choose whether or not to share. (Hopefully you’ll want to share – we’ve got to spread some of that wanderlust around!!)
So, of course, traveling’s all about the views. Certain places just make your jaw drop in awe. Things you find along the way make you smile and laugh. Others are just too perfect not to photograph.
But, of course, food plays a pretty big part in everyone’s traveling experience.
But I’d be lying if I denied that most of my travel photos came from Snapchat. I’m not carrying my DSLR 24/7 so, in a way, my Snaps are about as real as travel gets. Gotta love Snapchat.
However, as much as I love my landscapes and selfies, it’s always the people you meet up with along the way who make traveling so much fun.
Until next time,
