Sunkissed Wanderers Seeking New Horizons

Hannah and Nick are the free-spirited Dutch couple behind the popular blog, Salt in Our Hair. In May 2016, they set off on a world adventure and shared their experiences with the world. Their goal: to remind everyone there’s more to life than a nine-to-five job and that there are adventures out there waiting to be lived. Their photos are vibrant, masterfully edited, and so well composed they bring to mind a high-end fashion magazine.

#62 – @andyto

A Bay Area Explorer Seeing Beauty in All Things

Andy To grew up in a rough part of Oakland, California, and he attributes his ability to see the beauty in all things to this early exposure to adversity. Life wasn’t easy growing up, and getting involved with the wrong crowd eventually led to some run-ins with the law. But a fresh start opened itself up to him on Christmas day, many years ago, when a police officer offered him a second chance at life. It was uphill from then on, and Andy discovered his love for filmmaking and photography. According to him, he found his voice behind the camera, and these days, he travels the world, devoting himself to his passions.
