Have you traveled anywhere exciting lately? This week, let’s see where you’ve been.
This past February, I had the amazing opportunity to visit two of my dearest friends in Western Australia. I’d never been to the island nation before, never mind to the Southern Hemisphere, and throughout the entire journey from New York I had one thought on my mind: I can’t believe I’m doing this!
I’m no stranger to traveling the globe, but that surreal sensation that I was suddenly standing on the opposite side of the planet never went away. It took about as long as the jet lag to wear off before I could truly digest where I was; and yet, as I began to settle in, little moments continued to crop up that reminded me I was having a truly new experience. One such moment that stands out for me was encountering my first kangaroos.
As approachable and docile as they were, there was also a bit of majesty to the entire encounter as the sun set in the distance and this friendly critter allowed me to get awfully close to take a portrait. It was one of those fleeting experiences that reminds you how wonderful it is to get out of your comfort zone and try something new.
This week, share a photo that represents travel to you. Whether you’re crossing borders or visiting a nearby neighborhood for the first time, we would love to see how you capture these new environments and interactions!
I look forward to traveling with you!
