This time last week, I celebrated my birthday in Portugal on a solo trip.
A few years ago, when I first started solo travelling, I kind of gave up on the idea of getting any good pictures of myself while travelling. I’m hella shy and awkward, so I’m not really a fan of asking a stranger to take a picture for me. And the few times I did, let’s just say that you won’t be seeing the pictures.
Fortunately for me, I met bae (AKA my tripod) and since then my photography game has been upgraded.
If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, then you already know that last week I was in the stunning city of Dubai. What you may not have known is that my girl Tinuke and I visited Dubai to celebrate her birthday – check out her blog and show her some birthday love!
That’s why I love having a post for each trip that is entirely dedicated to sharing my experience through pictures. However everything has its limitations especially when we had to pass up on taking a lot of great shots in an attempt to avoid getting harassed, but that’s a story for another day.
Last week, my friend Maria and I escaped an extremely rainy London for a few days for an extremely hot Berlin! Here’s a few of the pictures we took using my Samsung Galaxy S6 and her Nikon D3100. More pictures coming soon in some other posts. 🙂
When I told my friends and family that I was going to Gran Canaria, a lot of their responses was “where is that?”. Gran Canaria is a Spanish Island off the coast of Morocco and is a part of the Canary Islands.
