“To be an adventurer, you must be prepared to be broke, isolated, in awe, lonely, overwhelmed by beauty, tired, energized and in flux. – Shamit”
Scrolling through your Instagram feed, you can’t help but get hooked on some accounts especially due to their constant nudge for adventure through their posts. Here are some of my favorites:
Linda Matama (@lindamatama)
She’s always on the move across different continents, sometimes watching the sunrise in the city of Nairobi, other times staring in awe at the beauty of Taj Mahal in India. Linda’s ‘travelometer’ is on 21 countries and 52 cities.
Dear photographers, most days i love you but we need to talk about shots like this one right here. Do you think you could get it right the first time? The water gets into the nose and you start to get dizzy tossing your head. Back, forth, back and forth again. By the 5th take you forget why you thought it would be a sexy photo and are trying really hard to fight the desire to drown you. Thank you. . 📸 by @stevensila Costume from @forevertrendy22_ . . #amazingkenya #tembeakenya #igkenya #magicalkenya #vscokenya
