For all five full days I've been in Sydney so far, I've seen the Opera House and the Harbour Bridge all five. I've found I like photographing the bridge better, as I can find different angles to get where the Opera House is more difficult for me to get unique photos of. Either way, I love them both. • • • • #discoverearth #beautifuldestinations #artofvisuals #visualambassadors #wonderful_places #lr_travel #tlpicks #sydney #ilovesydney #igerssydney #newsouthwales #visitnsw #tourismnsw #australiagram_nsw #australia #amazingaustralia #takemetoaustralia #australiagram #ozshotmag #seeaustralia #wow_australia2018 #australia_shotz #australia_vacations #australia_oz #igersaustralia #topaustraliaphoto #australialove #ig_australia #timeoutsydney #RBGsydney

Had my first day of solo wandering here in Sydney yesterday. Some of my absolute favorite memories from London were the days I explored the city on my own and got lost a billion times, only to find some incredible places. Yesterday I was on my way back to my room, but stumbled upon this place. I love being by the water wherever that may be, and this might easily become one of my favorite places in Sydney. Not too far from where I live either. I was deciding if I really did need to buy a tripod while here since mine at home was too heavy to bring, but no doubt I will be buying one to bring to capture this beautiful view at night. • • • • #discoverearth #beautifuldestinations #artofvisuals #visualambassadors #visualauthority #wonderful_places #lr_travel #tlpicks #sydney #ilovesydney #igerssydney #newsouthwales #visitnsw #tourismnsw #australiagram_nsw #australia #amazingaustralia #takemetoaustralia #australiagram #ozshotmag #seeaustralia #wow_australia2018 #australia_shotz #australia_vacations #australia_oz #igersaustralia #topaustraliaphoto #australialove #ig_australia #timeoutsydney

I won't be able to post for the next few days with all the traveling, so I'll just say my next post will be from Australia. Here's to another semester of adventures, facing my fears, and learning so much more about this world 🌏 • • • • #uk #uk_shooters #england #photosofengland #travel_drops #photosofbritain #topukphoto #visit_uk #lovegreatbritain #gloriousbritain #london #londonlife #londoncity #londoner #thisislondon #igerslondon #timeoutlondon #london_enthusiast #london4all #london_only #toplondonphoto #visitlondon #londondisclosure #london_bigcity #thelondonlifeinc #shutup_london #ig_london #traverselondon #ig_londonuk #shardview

Fear of the unknown. ••• Many of you might already know that I leave Monday to study abroad in Sydney for the semester. Studying abroad is always so exciting--new places, new experiences, new friends, new everything. What most people don't realize though, is this. The truth is, I am scared as heck about it. ••• Studying abroad freshman year of college helped me so much to break out of my comfort zone. I felt somewhat comfortable going to London--being not insanely far away from home, having my older sister studying abroad in Milan that same semester, knowing most people in my program, having already been to London twice before, etc. But nothing could prepare me for going somewhere as far away as Australia for four months, being that far away from my family, never having been to Sydney, and not knowing anyone going into my program this time around. ••• That's a lot of talk of fear coming from someone who doesn't believe fear exists, but that's a story for another day. ••• Fear of the unknown. Not knowing what to expect of something. Not knowing if it will be a great experience, or a terrible experience. Stepping into unknown territory without having any idea the outcome. ••• I've learned that in these situations is when you learn the most about yourself. I will likely be freaking out getting onto the plane Monday as I was going to London last spring, but it ended up being exactly what I needed at that point in my life. I cannot say that same thing will happen this semester, but I know that I will learn so much about myself. ••• It's ok the be uncomfortable, scared, nervous, anything. It's ok. That's natural, but it's important to not let it consume you. It's important to embrace new experiences, take advantage of every opportunity you get, and not focus so much on something as crazy as being forgotten by your friends back at school. ••• Adventure is out there, my friends. Don't let fear stand in the way of enjoying these adventures. • • • • #lr_travel #tlpicks #toplosangelesphoto #losangeles_city #california_vacations #topcaliforniaphoto #visitcalifornia #caliinviteyou #visit_losangeles #california_igers #discoverla #losangeles_la #visitca #visitla

Have a few more photos to share from Peru, then by that time I should have some new content. Not my best or favorite photo from Peru, but I like the colors in this one. Here's a funny fact I just found about Lima: all dogs there wear clothing, pretty much all the time. I guess I need to pay more attention to that next time! • • • • #discoverearth #beautifuldestinations #ig_color #artofvisuals #visualambassadors #visualauthority #createexplore #pulsatingplanet #travelawesome #shotzdelight #wonderful_places #theglobewanderer #roamtheplanet #travel_drops #lr_travel #tlpicks #peru #southamerica #peruenunatoma #perufulltravel #igersperu #travelperu #experienceperu #discoversouthamerica #destinationsouthamerica #visitsouthamerica

Happy Independence Day everyone 🇺🇸 I decided to post a bit early because I might want to do another post later tonight. I never have the best photos to post for the 4th of July, so here's the best one I could find. I think that's another way of telling myself I need to step outside of my comfort zone, and possibly shoot fireworks eventually. • • • • #discoverearth #beautifuldestinations #ig_color #artofvisuals #visualambassadors #visualauthority #createexplore #pulsatingplanet #travelawesome #wonderful_places #theglobewanderer #roamtheplanet #lr_travel #tlpicks #chicago #mychicagopix #igerschicago #insta_chicago #chitecture #chicago_community #igersmidwest #chi_vibes #cityscape #city_captures #chicagogrammers #topchicagophoto #chicagoprimeshots #chicagogram #artofchi #chicagopulse

Named one of the New Seven Wonders of the World in 2007, Machu Picchu is located in the Andes Mountains almost 8000 feet above sea level. In the construction of the city of stone also known as the Lost City of the Incas, no wheels or iron tools were used to transport heavy rocks in this construction. It is believed that a large number of men just pushed the rocks up the very steep mountain. • • • • #discoverearth #beautifuldestinations #ig_color #artofvisuals #visualambassadors #visualauthority #createexplore #pulsatingplanet #travelawesome #shotzdelight #wonderful_places #theglobewanderer #roamtheplanet #travel_drops #lr_travel #tlpicks #peru #southamerica #peruenunatoma #perufulltravel #igersperu #travelperu #experienceperu #discoversouthamerica #destinationsouthamerica #visitsouthamerica #cusco #igerscusco

Cusco is the most popular destination for tourists in Peru, as one would expect. About 1.5 million tourists visit every year. Cusco was the Inca empire's capital and is said to have been "where the old world met the new." • • • • #discoverearth #beautifuldestinations #ig_color #artofvisuals #visualambassadors #visualauthority #createexplore #pulsatingplanet #travelawesome #shotzdelight #wonderful_places #theglobewanderer #roamtheplanet #travel_drops #lr_travel #tlpicks #peru #southamerica #peruenunatoma #perufulltravel #igersperu #travelperu #experienceperu #discoversouthamerica #destinationsouthamerica #visitsouthamerica #cusco #igerscusco

Alright I gotta say I've been quite overwhelmed with the news this entire night that I forgot to post until now haha. Some of you might know that I'm a huge lakers fan and today was a HUGE day for the lakers and well I cried because LeBron James is officially a laker 😭😭 In honor of that, I decided an LA post was necessary today!!!!!! • • • • #discoverearth #beautifuldestinations #ig_color #artofvisuals #visualambassadors #visualauthority #createexplore #pulsatingplanet #travelawesome #shotzdelight #wonderful_places #theglobewanderer #roamtheplanet #travel_drops #lr_travel #tlpicks #toplosangelesphoto #losangeles_city #california_vacations #topcaliforniaphoto #visitcalifornia #caliinviteyou #visit_losangeles #california_igers #discoverla #losangeles_la #lastory #westcoast #visitca #visitla

The most incredible train ride I have ever taken. Hands down. Pictured in this photo are both Veronica (the snowcap mountain) and the Urubamba River. The Belmond Hiram Bingham train travels from the Andes down the Sacred Valley, and is easily one of the most scenic train rides you'll ever take. • • • • #discoverearth #beautifuldestinations #ig_color #artofvisuals #visualambassadors #visualauthority #createexplore #pulsatingplanet #travelawesome #shotzdelight #wonderful_places #theglobewanderer #roamtheplanet #travel_drops #lr_travel #tlpicks #peru #southamerica #peruenunatoma #perufulltravel #igersperu #travelperu #experienceperu #discoversouthamerica #destinationsouthamerica #visitsouthamerica #cusco #igerscusco
