Travel Photos – Catching Yourself In The Act Of Becoming Something Good

Travel Photos – Catching Yourself in The Act of Becoming Something Good

At times the world can seem an unfriendly and sinister place, but believe us when we say that there is much more good in it than bad. All you have to do is look hard enough. And what might seem to be a series of unfortunate events may, in fact, be the first steps of a journey.” 
— Lemony Snicket A Series of Unfortunate Events

Some good advice about raising kids is “ catch them in the act of doing something good.” Most of us don’t feel good about ourselves all the time and we need to be reminded of things we have done. We don’t usually take photos when we are helping a friend or family member, creating something or facing our fears. Those are usually done without any fanfare but I found a few times where I’ve done these things ( though not the best photos) and I thought I would put them up as a reminder that change and becoming who you  never thought you would be, is good.

Feeding kangaroos in Tasmania, Australia


Practicing English in Kyoto, Japan


Going On A Seaplane in Vancouver, Canada


Hiking near Bogota, Colombia


Making Jewelry in Toledo, Spain


Meditating in Bangkok, Thailand


Going on a hot air balloon ride over Cappadocia, Turkey


Buying fried crickets  “chapulinas” for a snack in Oaxaca, Mexico


Driving in the Atacama Desert on unpaved roads for hours to get toI the salt flats of Northern Argentina 14,000 feet above sea level.


After school tutoring at 826LA


Ultimately the lesson is simple and powerful. If we are eager to create a world where people do their best, we need to highlight and celebrate when we face our fears, create something we are proud of and act with kindness.

Fly safe,
