Signature Travel Poses To Love

What do you collect when you travel?, a blog reader once asked. I laughed on the inside as I typed my reply because, honestly, I collect nothing but memories. I buy things - fridge magnets, Starbucks' tumblers and whatnot - but I tend to give all those to my family and friends when I get home. Hence, I only have photographs encrusted with good ol' memories for myself and I'm totally okay with it.

But last year, I noticed something with my travel photos. They all look so basic! It's either I stand straight in an overly photographed spot or I pinch the tip of a famous monument. Take for example my photo op with Taj Mahal! Arrrgh! How cliche! I couldn't help but tell myself, "You can do better than that!"  whenever I see it. 

I thought it would be nice to do something unconventional next time. I want to make my treasure trove aka travel photo collection more visually appealing. And it turned out that a sprinkle of creative dust is all I need. Thus, a signature travel pose was born!

Signature Travel Pose

A lot of Filipino Bloggers in the UAE have their own travel poses as well. I guess, we all agree that there should be more to a travel photo than simply being in it! So, here's a round up of the signature travel blogger poses that I love.

Divi is fashion, travel and beauty blogger based in Dubai.

Signature Back Shots of @IamDocGelo
Doc Gelo is a travel writer, a seasoned photographer and a General Physician. 
He authored two published travel photobooks.
His writings and his signature back shots taken in top travel spots are enough to inspire us to follow his trail.

I initially thought that my plan to travel and set foot to the world's largest country was too ambitious. 🌿 For story and more photos from Moscow (and soon, an article about Saint Petersburg), read my 2-part- series about our weeklong winter break in Russia on my site! πŸƒ All photos πŸ“· were taken using only my android phone because my camera was broken at the start of the trip.

And this is our very own...

#TheHighFiveJump of Ed and Lady
Our signature pose is a fusion of two things we usually do when we travel; jump shot and high five! We often do the latter behind the camera whenever we reach a destination without getting lost! :)
Hence, doing #TheHighFiveJump is another way of saying
"Good job, forever travel buddy! Cheers to more happy travels together!"

How about you? Do you have a signature travel pose?
