Why do you travel ?

What is the purpose of your trip abroad?

Why do not like leaving your house?

Are you afraid of the unknown?

Share with us your thoughts on Dreamstime ...

When I was small my father used to say: "Do not be afraid of anything ever!

Fear has big eyes, especially in the dark. "

He gave me the strength to cope with difficult situations.

I thank him for it ...

My courage, the joy of traveling and exploring new countries, led me to the highest mountain range in the world - the Himalayas. They live there, people who owned almost nothing and are happy and humble. We have warehouses full of food and yet many of us are unhappy. Why is that?

Enjoy the new year by looking at my photos of the highest and most beautiful mountains in the world: Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Cho Oyu, Ama Dablam ...

Thank you in advance for your opinions on travel and for visiting my portfolio.

Thanks Peter. All mountains are beautiful. Himalayas are pearls on the globe. Well, climb mountains and do not carry the camera with you is a big mistake. Shooting in the mountains is hard work, but we have joy of it.
You have beautiful pictures of the mountains.
See ya :-)

Very nice pictures. I travel because our world is not to be missed. As it shrinks we are coming closer together and it's important to know what is happening. Travel is the best way to see it firsthand!

Excellent Photos!

Why do we travel? To get experience, to widen one's own horizon, to meet interesting people, to have fun and to make nice photos! Yesterday I returned from China, so my memories are fresh!

Thanks.Yes. Inspiring thoughts for all. "Look positively to the future!"

To: Thevegetable
Thank you. I wish you to visit this beautiful place. The first photo above is the crown of Himalayan peaks seen from Tengboche Buddhist monastery. It is reportedly the most beautiful place in the Himalayas. Yes, it is a sacred place with great positive energy.

To: Matewe
Thank you very much for wishes :-)))

To: Physi28
Yes. I agree, and thank you for the comment. We have beautiful nature on our continent. And we also have a lot of experienced photographers who are interested in nature photography and wildlife.
I wish you a bright light for your new pictures !

I like my home country, Catalunya, but since I work at DT, I like to travel to foreign countries to get wildlife images of species which are rare to see in DT and will make it easier to sell them. In Europe, we have wonderful nature and wildlife but of course there are plenty of photographers out there with their cameras, many of them very experienced.

Wonderful photo's of a wonderful place. I like my home, but I like traveling too, to see foreign countries with my own eyes and to try to feel the spirit of it. I wish you a lot of time and money for traveling, whenever you want it.

Thanks for the comment. Yes, I agree. Without money you can not travel. It is important to have a job. The truth is that today it is possible to travel virtually on the Internet, but the real journey enriches us completely differently - internally in our hearts.

To: Babar760
Well, today is a different time and opportunities for travel are enormous. I like: I did just the opposite! :-)

The only thing that keeps me from travelling all year long is the work and obviously the money you need to do that,otherwise I'm one of those who think that nothing give you more experience than what you can learn by travelling,meeting new culture;because it's true that we now know almost everything by wathcing the tv and documentaries,by reading other people experiences,but I truly believe we need to make our own trip to really understand what that means

On another note, my grandfather used to say," travel? Why would anyone want to travel when it's so nice at home!" And, " the best surprise is no surprise!" Needless to say, I did just the opposite.

Thanks for the beautiful proverbs. I fully agree. Travel broadens the mind and keeps the spirit of youth. Everyone should at least once a year to leave their home and go to a place where there had never been. So forget your everyday stereotype in the hectic world and resorting to nature, in solitude. There are people who prefer to be in society and vibrant city. To these people I thank God I do not belong.
I agree that traveling costs money. Not everyone can travel far and according to his wishes. No need to travel far. Just visit some nearby place where you've never been. Of course, this is for people who are in your life still a goal. Some even have no more ... :-)

To: Digikhmer
Thank you for comment. I agree.

Traveling is to open your mind to the world. It makes you to appreciate who you are and what you have.

Thank you for your honest words. The desire to make a panorama of high mountains image entails much strength and passion with which the photographer wear on his shoulders a heavy photographic equipment. Yes. Humility, courage, patience and inner strength belongs to me .... :-)

Thanks for the comment. Yes. I agree that the best investment is to travel and explore. Experiences and knowledge of the travel will stay with us forever preserved in memory. And will never be any financial crisis lost.

Proverb says: "Travel broadens the mind."
In France, the proverb says "Travel broadens the youth" I would add that the age is determined by the trips we made ​​during our lives... Former travelers keep the spirit of youth.
Shame that it is sometimes so expensive, and not everyone can do it.

I love traveling in every way. I started traveling with my parents, later with my friends, alone, with my husband and now with my children. Very different ways but every time it's beautiful and a great emotion.

I think that the best invested money is traveling...

Happiness is not an absolute condition but very relative. Have you ever wondered why so many of us are so happy to carry the weight of our camera and lenses while many others, even wanting to shoot, can not bear?
The passion for photography helps us to "not be afraid of the weight" ...
The lack of fear also helps in many other situations, even when you have nothing ...
I also remember another man who, like your father, exhorted young people to never be afraid. He was a Pope: John Paul II.

Congratulation for your beautiful portfolio!

Thank you for your nice comment.
Nowadays, many parents behave contrary to their children, do not support them in assertive growth. It's a big mistake.
I wish you find a beautiful and peaceful place to vacation this year.

to: Midou3
Thank you. For me, it's exactly the same. :-)

Very beautiful photos! And I love your father's saying 'do not be afraid of anything ever'. One of my professors at University told us the same thing last year and I really find them to be very wise words.

I travel because I love to discover new places. But I also feel like I am searching for something. I don't know what is it but I feel the need to keep seeing new places. Maybe I'm searching for a new place to call home or I just have to see the whole world until I come to peace with myself :)
