Jumping Around the World

It’s no secret, we love to travel. Somewhere around 2006 or so we started to express our love of travel by literally jumping for joy in our photos. It all began in Egypt actually with a group jumping shot in front of the Great Pyramid. Since then, we’ve been jumping around the world. Sometimes it takes more than a few tries to get a perfect jumping shot but when it works there is really something special about it. Below is a collection of some of our favorites and most meaningful from all around the world. Do you ever take photos like this when traveling? I’d love to see them posted in the comments!

    Loved these jumping around the world!! Here is a fun one of my friend and I jumping on Jebel al-Madhbah in Jordan. About 5 min after we took this picture a Japanese tourist came over and asked us to take a jumping photo of her too. Just goes to show, jumping photos know no cultural boundaries! 🙂
