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 inspiration, and challenge us to photograph the world in innovative ways.
This week, we’ve dedicated our gallery to the students at MatadorU. Here’s this week’s editors’ picks of our students finding some serious #travelstoke:
1. Andy Best getting ready to hit the road in the Alvord Desert, Oregon.
ADVENTURE TIME The prep is just about done! Gear is charging, cleaned, and organized! And I’m Yosemite bound tomorrow! With a few stops along the way of course. Oh man, It’s always hard for me to sleep the night before a big adventure. I’ve started using Snapchat more, (andy.best) I’ll be showing a little bit of the behind the scenes of what it’s like to live in a camper with my pup Sequoia. Not to mention the balancing act of living, working, and managing what seems to be an endless gear list. Follow the journey starting tomorrow!

7. Toni Gogov enjoying a view of Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzania.
Kilimanjaro is a snow-covered mountain 19.710 feet high, and is said to be the highest mounain in Africa. It’s western summit is called the Masai ‘Ngaje Ngai’, the House of God. Close to the western suummit there is a dried and frozen carcas of a leopard. No one has explained what the leopard was seeking at that altitude.

8. Drone shot from Karagol in Turkey, by Michael Matti.
Karagol in Turkey. We spent many hours in the van today as we headed further up into the mountains of northeast Turkey (near the Turkey-Georgia border). When we arrived at this lake, it was pouring down rain, as it had been doing most of the day. But just as we were about to leave, the rain stopped, and I was able to fly my drone up above the lake to get this shot. Such a beautiful spot in this remote part of Turkey! @Turkey_Home #TurkeyHome #Turkey #WildernessCulture #TravelStoke

9. Johan Adermalm in Jukkasjärvi in northern Scandinavia.
The first snow has fallen in Halmstad which means that the winter is officially here! But if you want to experience a real winter and also learn about the indigenous people of northern Scandinavia (the Sámi people), I would strongly recommend visiting @nuttisamisiida in Jukkasjärvi. Why not take a reindeer tour through this fantastic winter wonderland while you are at it ? #MyWinterFeelGoodPlace
