Do you want to live vicariously through me?

 

Or maybe you wish to add a few locations to your bucket list?

 

My wife Kelli and I have circled the globe for a decade. We have spent a fair chunk of time in the States the prior 3 years but changed time zones like most folks change their minds, for a handful of years.

 

Let us take a blogging break today. Becoming a successful blogger demands you relax, detach from blogging and enjoy other aspects of life.

 

I want to share 20 eye popping photos from my world travels with you.

 

Note:

 

  • I used no filter for these photos; everything is natural/organic/as is
  • Kelli and I snapped most of these suckers with a Cannon SX700 HS
  • I am a traveler and at times, travel blogger but my camera game is little; God took over on these shots

 

Enjoy.

 

1: Mount Cook South Island New Zealand

I got this sucker just as the sun peaked through. Yes; New York is a little more than New York City.
