Shanghai, China

It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words, as every picture tells a story. A photo can convey what may take many words to express. Highlighting a mood, while capturing moments in time. I invite you to join my journey visually by following the_jet_set_diaires on Instagram.

Instagram is a mobile application that allows you to view and share photo’s with others in a quick and easy manner. Along with its mobile app, the site also has web-based pages where you can view users profiles. You can find The Jet Set Diaries webpage here at http://instagram.com/the_jet_set_diaries or follow me on your mobile device under the_jet_set_diaries. I invite you to see a bit of the world through my eyes and experience a part of my travels and life journey.

So come join the visual adventure!
