Photo of the Week: The Seattle Waterfront

 

Each Wednesday I’ll be spotlighting a different photo from my travels around the world.

This weeks photo comes from a place near and dear to my heart,  Seattle.  Growing up I took my location for granted, always longing to go elsewhere, but now, after having traveled to more than 35 countries, I can honestly say Seattle is one of my favorite cities in the world.  I’m always so excited to get back to explore more of this place I called home for so long, and my favorite way to explore?  Well, just like Dr. McDreamy, I love my ferry rides, and this view of Seattle’s waterfront proves why.  You can get some pretty incredible views!

Photo Of The Week: The Lukla Airport

Each Wednesday I’ll be spotlighting a different photo from my travels around the world.

This weeks photo is from Lukla, Nepal, the starting point for most treks to Everest Base Camp and home to “The Worlds Most Extreme Airport” as deemed by the History Channel due to the ever changing weather conditions as well as the incline of the runway, which on one end is capped by a solid rock wall and on the other by a sheer drop.  I can say, from first hand experience that the pilots who fly into this airport are truly skilled, a fact I am so grateful for.

 

Photo Of The Week: Mozambican Children

 Photo of the Week, where each Wednesday I’ll be spotlighting a different photo from my travels around the world.

This weeks photo is from Beira, Mozambique.  After spending a month in sparkly, modern South Africa, Mozambique’s feeling of being “a step behind” was more than welcome.  It was the Africa I had been waiting for.  One day I was lucky enough to visit a village way out in the sticks.  This village had to have been what inspired Disneylands Jungle Cruise.  We’re talking grass huts, dirts paths, animals.  But what stood out the most were the children.  Always excited to be in a picture, and with giant smiles on their faces who could resist?

Photo Of The Week: Kanchanaburi + An Adventure!

 Photo of the Week, where each Wednesday I’ll be spotlighting a different photo from my travels around the world.

Yes, this week I’m a day late, I blame it on a poor internet connection here in Bolivia.  But better late than never!

This week my photo is from Erawan Waterfall just outside of Kanchanaburi, Thailand, one of my favorite places in the country!  Erawan Waterfall is made up of 7 different tiers, with the top tier being a decent 45 minute hike from the first one, but it’s totally worth it.  The pools of these waterfalls aren’t only known to be a great place to cool of, they’re also home to a species of sucker fish similar to the ones found in fish spas, that like to suck the dead skin from your body.  At first I’ll admit, it’s a little creepy, but if you let them do their work you’ll come out with some pretty smooth skin.

And now for the adventure part.  I’ve been living in Bolivia for less than a week, but thank’s to some adventurous co-volunteers, this weekend I’m going to be able to check something off from the top of my bucket list and I’m so excited!!!  Can you guess what if could be?

Photo Of The Week: Lake Titicaca

 

It’s back! Photo of the Week, where each Wednesday I’ll be spotlighting a different photo from my travels around the world.

This week my photo is from the Peru side of Lake Titicaca.

Considered the highest navigable lake in the world, Lake Titicaca is shared by both Peru and Bolivia.  On a brief stop in Puno, Peru we decided to take a tour of the famous and colorful Uros Floating Islands, where the Uru people have lived for generations in small villages floating on islands constructed of reeds (which Lake Titicaca has an abidance of!).
