Oscar was an adorable dog who went globetrotting around the world for the World Woof Tour. Joanne Lefson, Oscar's owner and photographer, documented her travels with Oscar to raise global awareness of homeless dogs. Oscar has more stamps in his passport than most people can even dream of. Lefson and Oscar traveled to famous landmarks around the world including the Eiffel Tower, Statue of Liberty, Pyramids of Giza and Great Wall of China among many others.
If you haven't seen these videos by Rick Mereki, you are in for a treat. These three videos were commissioned by STA Travel Australia, and are a great way to promote travel. They really make me want to jump on a plane and go somwhere.

= a trip of a lifetime.
move, eat, learn"

The following photos are part of Pictory Magazine's Overseas and Overwhelmed story. Each photo represents a time when the picture taker was experiencing culture shock in a foreign land, and is accompanied by great stories that explain the photos. Below, you'll find some of my favorites.
