Nice to virtually meet you!
Welcome to my travel platform that showcases my epic travel adventures and photoshoots in and around 65 countries!
Here I am hoping to inspire you to get out of your comfort zone and explore all the wonders the world has to offer. I aim to get you wanderlusting on new destinations, some completely remote, and others quite easily accessible.
I am Chantelle Flores a full-time Travel and Lifestyle photographer, travel writer and cinematographer originally from South Africa. Now making my home in Zurich.
I am big on paving your own path in life and basically doing you, so years back I decided to throw in the towel working in the corporate field as a marketer and spend time creating a lifestyle that I really wanted. I spent 13 years mastering the art of photography and through my determination, hard work and commitment I built a global name for myself. Through this, I managed to self-fund all my travel adventures to 53 countries and built up an extensive collection of travel images through the process.
I wish I had started this blog up when I first started traveling, but my initial idea was to publish a book when I reached 50 countries, so I was holding back on showing the world my content which was really silly in high site. In 2016, I was invited along on my first blog trip with Travel Massive where I met a few influential bloggers who introduced me to the "blog" world. It left me inspired to create my own platform to showcase all of my adventures. So I finally did it! (My book, by the way, is still in the pipeline so keep an eye out for this in the future).
I have now made it a mission to show travellers just like you the world through my unique range of images, and inspire you to make your travel dreams a reality. I am a huge lover of the great outdoors, adventure trips, and culture so you will see a whole bunch of these topics throughout the blog. I also love to travel on a really small budget so I will commit to sharing with you how I have managed to self-fund all my trips.
I am all for taking risks in life and just going with it, so at the end of 2017 I sold up everything and bought a one-way ticket to Spain. I decided to join the nomad life full time, this way I am able to fit in exploring new destinations and still be able to have some time to write about these experiences. 2020 - I am still doing this ;)

MY PHOTOGRAPHY STYLE
Known for pushing the boundaries, my photographs are a fresh take on the natural world
FULL OF ENERGY, MOOD and MOVEMENT
I look for the beautiful in the common, the unusual in the usual, the perfection in the broken and the uniqueness of the mundane.
Like the butterfly embracing the beauty of a single flower, I like to focus on the unnoticed –
those things that we all look at, but never see.
