Teresa Lim has found a way to combat this predicament. Now she spends two hours soaking in the energy of each travel spot while she embroiders what most would snap a quick shot of.

New York City From A Toddler’s Point of View

You can only see so many postcard-esque shots of Times Square and Rockefeller Center before it feels like you have a good idea about what it’s like to be there. But what do these iconic locations look like from a baby’s perspective? With a Go-Pro behind his son’s back as he strolled through New York City, Ecuadorian photographer Diego Acosta López captured New York from an angle that many have experienced, but few can actually remember. The pictures document little Ignacio’s first trip to NYC to visit his daddy, who is studying at SVA (School of Visual Arts). Aside from serving to remind Ignacio of a trip he will likely forget, the photo shoot also counted towards a final project for one of his dad’s photography classes.

Flying Over Southern New Zealand Feels Like a Beautiful Thrill Ride

Southern New Zealand is known for its exceedingly beautiful and rugged landscape, and this video from Australia-based director Mark Toia shows it from its best angle – above.

It’s these stomach clenching heights that are captured over and over in this video, highlighting a collection of ‘aerial rushes’ produced as part of a TV commercial project.

How Much Does It Cost to Live In Each of the World’s Countries?

How much does it cost to live in Sweden? How about Morocco or Japan? You can’t just compare exchange rates to figure that out.

That’s what Numbeo has been doing for years, creating a cost of living database with a lot of help from people all around the world. Movehub recently took that information and created a fantastic series of maps comparing how expensive it is to live in all the world’s countries. How does yours measure up?
