The 11 most inspiring shots of the week
EACH WEEK WE CHOOSE OUR favorite images from readers, fans, and travelers, who tag their photos with #travelstoke and post them on our Instagram account. These pictures provide a daily dose of incentive, and challenge us to photograph the world in innovative ways. Here are this week’s editors’ picks of people finding some serious #travelstoke.
1. Elise, Oahu, Hawaii.
2. Christina Adele Warburg, Bridger-Teton National Forest, Wyoming.
Took this photo on my first ever camping trip at The Observatory in 2012 with my ministry team. Little did I know then, that that summer would lead me to my dream job and give me the best friends and memories I could ever hope for. I know I probably sound like a broken record, but this ministry (A Christian Ministry in the National Parks -ACMNP) has just impacted my life SO much, that I really want others to experience it. If you are a believer, have 90 days this summer, and want to live and work in one of about 30 different National Parks, I HIGHLY suggest applying. And don't just take my word for it, check back later in the comment section for more stories of how working with ACMNP has profoundly effected people's lives. Or feel free to share your own if you have one. I say this today because if you have served with ACMNP before and one summer just wasn't enough, your application fee will be waived if you apply by today. And If you have never served before, if you get your application in by today you have the opportunity to win some cool prizes. I promise it will be one of the best decisions you will ever make. @acmnp #acmnp
3. A World to Travel, Noia, Galicia, Spain.
4. Dylan Schwartz, Echo Park, Los Angeles.
5. Beau Ramsey, Mount Baker, Washington.
I love that we have the freedom to travel into these wonderful places! Here's an image from this last fall. We sat right here enjoying yummy snacks, drank refreshing beverages and watched a beautiful sunset. We all have bad days, but these perfect little moments all add up. They help me gain perspective on life and this life is beautiful.
6. Bel Jones, Wanaka, New Zealand.
7. Jordan Herschel, Columbia Icefield in the Canadian Rockies.
8. Marisa, Mount Elbert, Colorado.
9. Timo Oksanen, Hannukainen Finland.
10. SCUBAPRO, Roatán, Bay Islands, Honduras.
11. Elle Kirste, The Byodo-In Temple, Oahu Hawaii.
First stop on my tour of Oahu – the Byodo-Inn Temple. This beautiful replica of the original temple of the same name in Kyoto is made even more stunning and ethereal with its setting in the lush Valley of the Temples. Don't miss it! •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #topdecker #tourhawaii #worldexplorermag #natgeotravelpic #contiki #gadv #geckosadventures #traveltheworld #travelstoke #travelawesome #spottly #trover #lonelyplanet #fodorsonthego #bestvacations #beautifuldestinations #livetravelchannel #liveintrepid #lifewelltravelled #openmyworld #dametraveler #darlingescapes #worlderlust #SoulTravelers #openmyworld #neverstopexploring #jetstaraustralia #showusyourgorman #thinklesstravelmore #venturehawaii #lethawaiihappen
