Sharing your travel photos today is a simple click away thanks to how far photography technology has come. Though have you noticed recently that everyone seems to be sharing the same shots?
There are so many beautiful places to see in the world, whether that be a natural wonder or an architectural site, though it feels as though the world has already been photographed. As a tourist, it’s difficult to capture a unique angle which the world hasn’t already seen. Difficult to make your photography stand out when 1,000 tourists before you have stood and set up their tripod in that exact same spot.
Well, If you’re sick of coming home from overseas with the exact same shots as everyone else who owns a camera, Fripito is the app you need. Local knowledge, insider tips, and unique photo locations which other tourists simply don’t know.
Action camera’s are fantastic, though let’s be honest, they’re not made for easy sharing. If you’re an adventure seeker you wait until the end of the day to see your footage and you spend hours editing it before being able to create a sharable clip. I would love to post videos more frequently from our adventures, but they often take days to complete. That is, until now.
The TomTom Bandit isn’t the first action camera to hit the market, though I’ve found it’s certainly one of the most unique. Breaking into the market of action camera’s and releasing a product consumers will remember is a fairly difficult task – the market is already cornered by established name brands, and many companies who have attempted to break into action camera’s simply haven’t managed to last against brands like GoPro.
Though after reviewing the Bandit I do believe TomTom are up to the task – and not because the specs on the Bandit match some of the best cameras out there, but because it has very obviously been created with us in mind – they’ve really put thought into what users today want from an action camera, identified the pain points of current cameras, and created the TomTom Bandit action camera to be the easiest way to edit and share movies.
As we began our trek through the wilderness of Denali National Park we knew we were not alone. Fresh footprints marked our trail, and the chew marks on the wooden sign which noted our location at Sable Pass were quite obviously the jaw imprints of a grizzly.
Though far from being afraid, we had actually come for the bears, attempting to track them by their prints and scat which led from right outside our camp deep into the backcountry throughout the park.
These are our top tips on being bear aware, and our favorite photos from our recent trip to Alaska.
Denali National Park and Preserve is where spectacular scenery reigns, and all you need to do to see it is to travel the 92-mile Denali Park Road.
Alaska’s most well known national park, hundreds of people see sights that will stay with them the rest of their lives, and the view of the tundra over Sable Pass as we began a 12 mile hike back to camp is most certainly a sight which will stay with us for ours.
A sticky attraction which sits in Post Alley under Pike Market Place, the Market Theater Gum Wall in Seattle is a brick alleyway wall covered in a colorful mosaic composed completely of used gum.
One of the most offbeat attractions in the US, parts of the wall are covered several inches thick, 15 feet high for 50 feet. It was named one of the germiest tourist destinations on Earth by TripAdvisor in 2009, second to Ireland’s Blarney Stone.
Traveling along California’s famous Redwood Coast you’ll come across sandy beaches, a stunning rugged coast and the world’s tallest trees. Though tucked away in Crescent City well off the regular tourist trail lies Battery Point Lighthouse – a strikingly beautiful historic landmark built in the late 1800’s.
Standing a top a hill of vivid pink Gerbera, Battery Point Lighthouse is the most picturesque lighthouse in North America today.
It all began on November 25, 1990 – the date that Elephant Seals began using the beaches at Piedras Blancas.
What started off as less than 50 seals in a small cove has evolved into a colony which now stretches all the way to beaches that run along the Pacific Coast Highway, and it truly is an unbelievable spectacle to see.
Standing along California’s famously scenic 17-Mile Drive in Pebble Beach, a lone Monterey Cypress stands on a granite hillside alongside one of the world’s most beautiful (and expensive) golf courses.
As one of California’s most enduring landmarks, the Lone Cypress has prevailed on its rocky perch for more than 250 years.
One of the most well known ancient attractions on earth – Stonehenge remains a mystery to this day.
The pre-historic monument is a stone circle made of massive standing stones, built somewhere between 3000 and 1600BC. In the middle ages, they thought it was built by magic, though it has been estimated that the construction of Stonehenge required more than thirty million hours of labor.
