2015 was a year filled with adventures for me.
What adventures will you have in 2016?
Do you want to kayak, watch the sunset, and discover a place that makes you believe dragons might actually exist in Ha Long Bay, Vietnam?
Or marvel at the Buddhist temples in Laos?
You could hang out with elephants at the Elephant Nature Park.
Or celebrate Thai Culture at the Chiang Mai Flower Festival.
Do you want to wake up to the beach steps from your door?
Or explore the streets of Vienna with your favorite person to travel with?
Will you drink your way through Prague?
Or eat your way through Rome?
Are you going to leave your mark at the Cadillac Ranch in Amarillo, Texas?
Or take a stroll through the Gardens of the Gods in Colorado Springs?
How about taking in the views of the San Francisco Bay?
Or flying somewhere you’ve never been before?
You could hang out in the clouds at Mount Baker.
or hug a California Redwood.
Maybe you need to sip on some wine and take in the Sonoma County views while you decide.
If you know me, you know I love street art. I have loved it for as long as I can remember. My phase of graffiti writing and tagging walls quickly ended (is a few years quick?) once I realized the repercussions of getting caught, although I still am convinced I may have been a street artist in my past life.
So now I just photograph the street art and graffiti in as many cities as I can.
I am by no means a professional photographer nor do I always know much about the artists and artwork that I will be sharing. I just want to share the images that have moved me in cities I’ve been around the world. After all, street art can teach you a lot about a city.
While some cities’ art scenes are impossible to avoid, it is not always easy to find the best spots for street art as a tourist especially in a city like Vienna. If it wasn’t for our friend who has lived in Vienna for 4 years, I doubt I would have seen any street art other than the psychedelic mural at Naschmarkt!

Of course you can find a weiner on the wall in Vienna! But seriously, have you tried their cheese stuffed weiners? Life changing.
Hope you enjoyed my first post featuring Street Art from Around the World. Stay tuned for more!
