12 Adorable Moments Captured While Traveling [Photo Blog]

What I like about photographs is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce. -Karl Lagerfeld

Travelers know the importance of the selfie pic, as it proves that your off-center self was at the Eiffel Tower, the Colosseum, and the Brandenburg Gate. But one of the best parts of travelling abroad is the sheer amount of life that you’re exposed to on the ground; the picture of the man who sold you the best fish of your life, or the woman who had you laughing tears in a pub, tell an incredible and personal story of your journey. People everywhere are inspiring, creative – and quite often, simply adorable.

So turn your camera around, forget perfecting the selfie (it’s nearly impossible anyway), and snap a shot of the insanely adorable moments that are happening all around you. They’re some of the best memories to recount with folks back home, so get some documentation and visually share the love. From delightfully giddy toddlers enthralled with birds, to a man sweating romantic bullets on one knee, here are some of the travel photos that made even the hardest among us squeal at the cuteness.

12. In Asia’s largest slum, Dharavi, some barefoot children shared their tiny piece of chocolate the teacher had handed out to them with us.Read the full story on my visit to Dharavi here.

Holle wanted to see the Kumbharwada colony in Dharavi. So we went. Some people were very wary of cameras. Some weren't.
