Special Moments – A Travel Photo Love Letter

The theme for #FriFotos this week is a special one that has forced me to think about Valentine’s Day and what my partner means to me. The theme is Special Moments and I wouldn’t have any special travel moments without my partner of ten years, Scott. Together we have traveled the world, exploring its nooks and crannies and have loved every minute of it. He’s also given me a lot of emotional support, particularly as I built and continue to grow LandLopers. So this post is dedicated to Scott and is a reflection of some of the amazing places we have explored together.

  1. REAL nice post, Matt! When thinking about special moments this week all of my thoughts included my husband and grandkids. For me, travel isn’t the same without someone special to share it with.

  2. A gorgeous selection of warm memories! Except the Lake Louise one, “two” cute but I can practically feel the frostbite–brrrr:P

  3. Love love LOVE this post! I have spent so much time traveling with my wife, and I know how amazing it is to share your adventures with the one you love. Great post :) Thanks for sharing.

  4. This post gave me goose bumps. My late partner (he died three years ago) were together nearly thirty years and have visited nearly all the places in your photo blog together. I’ve been going around the world scattering his ashes in many of these places. I’m learning to travel differently…alone. But I still have that wanderlust and the fact that he can only join me in spirit is NEVER going to slow me down. Godspeed to you both.

    1. Randy, thank you so much for sharing that very special story. What a wonderful thing you’re doing and you’re right, it is definitely an adjustment. Good luck and thanks for following along!
