My Travel Style, A Pictorial (A #FriFotos Entry)

my overarching mantra, from what i’ve gathered putting this post together: travel often, travel frugal, travel to discover.

i mostly travel solo


Mosque of Muhammad Ali, Cairo, Egypt (shh don’t tell anyone but i did this trip with friends, but one of the few pictures i have of me solo — i don’t often take pictures of myself)

but that doesn’t mean i don’t like traveling with friends and family

My brother, St. Moritz, Switzerland

i prefer to fly; i hate road trips

Just after take-off on an evening London-Johannesburg flight on South African Airways

between cities in the same region, i prefer to take trains — especially high-speed ones

Somewhere in Central Europe, I *want* to say between Budapest and Ljubljana or maybe between Vienna and Budapest

and i love public transportation within cities, especially subways and trams

i prefer staying in airbnbs because they’re cheaper and i feel like more of a local

i’m a sucker for communist statues…

Small communist statue cemetery outside of Tallinn

…and street art…

Toronto, Canada

…and interiors of sacred spaces…

Monastery of Hosios Loukas, Greece

…and anything abandoned

New Idria, California

i travel for experiences like concerts…

Virginia Jetzt!, Berlin, Germany

…or exploration…

Chernobyl, Ukraine

…or general curiosity about the world i live in.

Near Siem Reap, Cambodia

i do splurge every now and then, though, for big ticket “once-in-a-lifetime” trips (though i hope they’re never just once)

On safari, South Africa

and i’m a mild aviation geek

Star Alliance MegaDO 4

and let’s not forget about food!
