An avid trailer with a thirst to experience this beautiful planet Earth as much as I can within my lifetime. People often travel to escape life. To escape the stress of work, to get away from something, or to take a breather from a seemingly boring lifestyle. I created Great Escapes to capture beautiful moments in my travels across the world in hopes of inspiring you to see travel not as a means to escape life, but for life not to escape us.
