Watching his travel and nature photos is bound to make you happy though, as most of them are spectacular.
James is a 22 year old student from London. Passionate about traveling, he has already visited 50 countries in all five continents as a backpacker.

4.My Travel Times
“Traveling makes you a better person, or at least a more interesting one.”
For Patricia F. Almeida, photos are memories. When bad times come, Patricia’s best medicine is to reminisce over a great trip. In her tumblog she shares photos – recent as well as old – from her visits to London, Australia, Thailand, Canada and other places. Many of the photos are artistic and architectural by nature.
Although this tumblog’s name suggests a blog about traveling in the rainy Pacific Northwest city, it’s got nothing to do with it. Seattle is, in fact, a girl’s name! Living in Toronto, Canada, 25 year old Seattle loves traveling, often solo, and sharing her adventures and travel tips with others. Her photos are inspiring and the captions are humorous and fun to read. Check out her blog for more in-depth travel stories and advice.
22 year old Hanna is a business student who doesn’t know what she wants to do with her life yet. In the interim she is going on a dream trip to Europe until the end of July 2013. Share her excitement through her photos and detailed, lighthearted travel stories.
The guys behind FvF (Freunde von Freunden = “Friends of Friends” in German) used to have a design agency called NoMoreSleep. Tired of working for clients, they sought an alternative. The result was FvF, an international interview magazine that showcases people of diverse creative and cultural backgrounds in their homes or natural work environment. The authentic photos will reveal to you interesting places through a fresh pair of eyes.

13.A Well Traveled Woman
“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts…” (Mark Twain)
As her name implies, American mother of two Bekah has visited various countries, to include Singapore, Uganda and Latvia. Nonetheless she believes that traveling has more to do with your perspective on the culture you’re visiting rather that the amount of countries you’ve been to. Her tumblog is a visual log of things that inspire her – and will, in turn, inspire you – to live life to the fullest.
“Life’s too short for discrimination and hate, if you stay open minded and accept others for who they are, happiness will follow.”
C-u-l-t-u-r-e-s will take you through a visual journey to, mainly, third world countries, embracing their culture and people. Happy people wearing traditional outfits and smiling children take center stage here. True to its agenda, this tumblog also includes posts and quotes about the welfare of Africa and other humanitarian matters. So keep an open mind when going through this blog and you won’t stop smiling. ..
