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. Lucas Lessa and Kelly Vidal, Old Havana, Cuba.
📍Havana, Cuba Cubans have a contagious joy and are extremely welcoming. The way they live is a real attraction. Everything here is special: the receptivity, the drinks, the music, the food, the history … It is among the most unique destinations we have ever visited. — Os cubanos possuem uma alegria contagiante e são extremamente acolhedores. A forma como vivem é uma verdadeira atração. Tudo por aqui é especial: a receptividade, os drinks, a música, a comida, a história… Está entre os destinos mais singulares que já visitamos.
2. Oscar Toledo, Lake Louise, Alberta, Canada.
3. Nathan Bruhl, New Zealand.
4. Yulia Denisyuk, Almaty, Kazakhstan.
In the US, we have been removed from the source of our food by multiple steps. We buy pre-packaged items and often don't know where they come from. In Kazakhstan, and in many other places around the world, people still have that link. They buy their meat from this particular butcher, tell him which cut they want, and watch him handle the animal swiftly. It may be messier that way, but it's also more real. #almaty #nomadicluster
5. Kristen, Grandeur Peak, California.
Today I’m headed to California to pick up my newly converted 4×4 Sprinter Van! The last few weeks I’ve been equally excited and nervous and have also gone back and forth about whether I want to give up my little apartment in Salt Lake, which I truly love. I’m scared to be on the road by myself indefinitely, but I’ve come to the conclusion that it just doesn’t make sense to keep my place…so I’ll be moving into my Sprinter FULL TIME come August. The first big adventure is still TBD, but it’s going to involve some big beautiful mountains somewhere out west. If anyone has tips for me about adjusting to life on the road, I’m all ears! 〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰
6. Max Rive, Lofoten, Norway.
