I’m sure that we’ve all seen those silly photos where with a little trickery it appears your friend is holding up the Leaning Tower of Pisa or kissing the Sphynx in Egypt.

While they are a bit ridiculous, I’m guilty of trying this out in the past and it can be a lot of fun! (Also, who am I to judge? I do jump for photos all over the world!)

I recently came across some amazing travel photos which remind me of the photos I’ve described above, they’re just a whole lot better. Continue reading You NEED To See These Instagram Photos

Turn Your Passport Into A Masterpiece…

Passport Art

To this day I still get excited when my passport gets stamped. I can’t wait to see what the new stamps (and Visas) will look like when visiting a new country.

After my passport is stamped, I usually leave the page open to let the ink dry so it won’t smear or get messed up. At times I’ve even requested for a stamp to be placed on a specific page.

I’m not really a fan of art but was really interested in the excitement that Banksy caused around NYC during his month-long residency Better Out Than In.  For just about every day in October, Banksy debuted a new work of art ranging from moving pieces, sculptures and his typical graffiti around the 5 boroughs of NYC.

At first I didn’t pay much attention to the hype but then it got interesting when Banksy set up a stand by Central Park. A vendor was selling original Banksy pieces for only $60 but it didn’t lead to many sales. The few lucky people who made a purchase are sitting on a small gold mine if they ever figure out what they have.

I started following closer each day, checking to see what Banksy would come up with next. It was also fun to find out which boroughs and neighborhoods the pieces were placed in.
