My first time seeing the ocean
Daytona Beach, Florida
Traveling the world is something I have wanted to do since I was in fifth grade. A man named Dean Jacobs visited my school; he is a traveling photographer and shared a lot of his journeys with us. Since meeting him, I've wanted to do the same. I've been taking pictures since then. Now, I live in Nebraska and the coolest places I could say that I have been are Iowa, South Dakota and North Dakota. Boring! I needed something new and exciting. For my 18th birthday, I drove to Florida. I went through Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, stayed in Tennessee half way through, and Georgia. In 18 years, I had only been to three different states. All in 24 hours I had been to six more. Seeing the ocean for the first time, seeing different landscapes, meeting new people; it's the best thing I've ever done, and it's only the beginning of my journey to travel all around.
