40 Days Away: Scavenger Hunt Update

After 40 days of travel, I’m back home! Check out how the scavenger hunt went.

Houston, I’m home! After 40 days of hopping around, my travel bug is thoroughly satisfied. My time away was AMAZING and transformative to say the least. So much so, I made a pact with myself to spend a month exploring every year. I met some great people, did some cool things, ate delicious food, and absorbed some culture.


As I mentioned in my previous post 40 Days Away: Upcoming Travel Plans & Scavenger Hunt, to hold myself accountable for actually taking photos I decided to do a scavenger hunt for sights in each place I visited. I generally don’t see a reason to snap photos constantly. I like to be in the moment. However, I’ve been wanting to improve my photography skills (with my phone and Nikon). Here is the list and corresponding photo:

Baltimore – Domino Sugar Sign

DC (Day Trip)– GW Monument

Philly (Day Trip)– LOVE Sculpture

NYC (Day Trip)– The Oculus / Hope Sculpture

Chicago – Cloud Gate

Vancouver – Mountain Scape

LA – Hollywood Sign

Puerta Plata, DR

Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to get my Dallas sight because of a flight delay cutting my time short. I also didn’t get Mount Isabel de Torres in Puerta Plata because…well…I spent 98% of my time in DR bumming on the beach and I don’t regret one minute of it.
