My Mom has been less than thrilled by a few of my adventure travel photos and I don’t know if I can blame her! Have you ever sent your Mom a travel photo and had her respond with “WHY DID YOU NEED TO DO THAT?!”…because I definitely have!
Here’s a list of 10 Times My Adventure Travel Photos Have Scared My Mom! If you’re interested in learning more about my adventures, check out the links to my related blog posts in the headings!
Freediving with Sharks in Hawaii I went diving with sharks in Hawaii without a cage, I’m pretty sure my Mom thought the company was using me as the bait!
Solo travelling through Bolivia I decided to give Death Road a try, much to my mother’s horror!
Standing on the Edge of the Grand Canyon in Arizona This one definitely got the “was that absolutely necessary” response!
Sitting on the Edge of Horseshoe Bend in Arizona After hearing they’re going to put barriers up, my Mom definitely wondered why I couldn’t have waited until then to see this beauty!
Rappelling Down a Waterfall in Ecuador I did this excursion with a local teenager who claimed to know the area and have gear I could use! …my Mom loved it…haha.
Playing with Tarantulas…On My Face in Canada Just a normal day in my life, but not to my Mom who is TERRIFIED of spiders!
Bundled in layers of fleece this photo of me rappelling down a 60 foot slot canyon made my Mom more than a titch nervous!
I spent a month walking big cats through the remote jungles of Bolivia where I didn’t contact my Mom for something like two weeks after my arrival…leaving her questioning if I had died getting there or not the whole time!
Scrambling to the Base of Brandywine Falls in Whistler This one is particularly nerve wracking for my Mom because she was actually with me on this hike and decided not to continue down to the base after seeing how steep the descent was. She watched my sister and I scramble down and then lost sight of us until we popped out at the base.
Jumping Out of a Plane in Canada
I don’t think I need to explain why she didn’t like this one!
What kind of adventure travel photos have you sent that scared your Mom? I’m always looking for new ideas, haha…
