Thank you to Lola of Where in the World is Lola? for tagging me to take part in HostelBookers 7 Super Shots. When I travel, the photographs I take are my souvenirs, so I loved going through my photos for this fun exercise. Well without further ado here is a photo that:
1. Takes my breathe away.
Anything along an ocean, especially anything along the Pacific Ocean on the PCH has me in awe. This shot is from just north of Malibu.
2. Makes me laugh or smile.
Seeing city skylines makes me smile. The sun, blue skies and hot weather make me smile. Being in a park makes me smile. Being in the ATL really makes me smile, so of course I’ll be on cloud nine when I’m at Piedmont Park in Midtown Atlanta.
3. Makes me dream.
Kerosene Creek, a hot spring around Rotorua, was the first time I felt like I was in a fairy tale in New Zealand. As I sat in the warm waters I dreamed about what other places and views I’d see as spectacular as this.
4. Makes me think.
On the open road or in this case on the open trail to Kea Point around Mount Cook, makes me think, what’s ahead and let’s explore.
5. Makes my mouth water.
When I go into a deli or restaurant I’m always looking for that reuben sandwich and no one does it better then Maize and Blue Delicatessen in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The Triple Play Reuben wow. Corned beef, pastrami, sauerkraut, multiple cheeses and Russian dressing stacked so high, my mouth can’t stop watering. I learned about this place from Adam Richman’s visit on Man V. Food and I can’t stop going back.
6. Tells a story.
I’ve had the chance to walk around Detroit, off the beaten path, to checkout some of the murals around the city. Each one depicts a story from its artist. Each one brings out different emotions for everyone that sees it, probably giving off a different story for all. The Water Cycle mural intrigued the weatherman in me, because it shows off Detroit, Windsor, the Detroit River in between and the life of water, coming down as rain and going back up as vapers.
7. I am most proud of (aka my worthy of National Geographic shot).
Hanging out along Charlotte Harbor in Punta Gorda, Florida last year during Fourth of July weekend brought out many American flags with beautiful backdrops behind.
It’s time to tag!
Look forward to seeing your guys 7 Super Shots!
