Indie Travel Week 3 Roundup: Photo Essay

No comments

Time for this week’s roundup of BootsnAll’s 30 Days of Indie Travel project. Each new day brings a new travel topic to expand upon. This week, I present a photo essay of the prompts.

Prompt #9: One Day  
Travel helps us better appreciate the present moment instead of always looking to the next thing. Describe one perfect day you had while traveling this year. Where were you? What were you doing? And what made it perfect?

 Site-seeing in my new city Philadelphia, strolling through Olde City, enjoying a beautiful fall day alone. 

Prompt #10: EARTH
At what point in your travels have you felt most in tune with the Earth? Share a story of how you interacted with the local environment or nature.

It sounds crazy, but this photo is from a trip that changed me forever. I traded in corporate drudgery just days earlier. Here I am in Gulfport, Florida (near Tampa), selling fresh watermelon on the Gulf with my best friend in life. Suddenly everything was right in the world.


Prompt #11: FEAST
For some of us, food isn’t just a part of our travels, it’s the reason why we travel. Whether you travel the globe to try new foods and use food to form a deeper connection with the culture or just eat to live, food plays a big part in the travel experience. Share a food-related story from your travels or describe your best meal.

So many good meals shared at this South Philly spot called Oregon Diner. Just take one look at the pastry selection!

Prompt #12: MEANINGFUL CONNECTIONS
Travelers meet dozens, if not hundreds, of new people on every trip. They may become friends, enemies, lovers, and resources; they may stay in your life forever or be forgotten the next day. Tell about a time you felt a powerful connection – for however long – to another person while traveling.

 Perhaps the only existing photo I have of Mike (far left), our Australian friend/tour guide in Montreal, QC for the day. He showed us such good times!
