World Traveler Tells His Mom That He Is Safe With His “Mom I”m Fine” Photo Series
It doesn’t matter how old you are, you know that your mom is going to check up on you no matter what! Jonathan Quiñonez was feeling burnt out from working as a consultant in Brussels, Belgium, when he decided to quit his job and travel the world. But he knew that his mom is going to be worried sick. That’s when he came up with this brilliant idea! Wherever he went he took a picture just to tell his mom that he is safe… Well kinda…
The first stop on his world tour was Cuba, and since internet and phone service is somewhat limited there, he had to find another way to let his worried Mexican mother know he’s OK. His “Mom, I’m Fine” photo series has made his 62-year-old mom very happy. She is constantly looking for new photos on his Instagram, which has attracted more than 176,000 followers.
After Cuba, he went on to sky-dive in Mexico and hike mountains in Bolivia.
He even climbed Huayna Potosi in Bolivia
He then surfed in Brazil and went scuba diving in Panama.
“Mom I’m fine”
The world traveler even got help from soldiers in Colombia to wish his mom a happy birthday.
He doesn’t plan on stopping his journey anytime soon. While seeing new sights and trying new things, he was inspired to give back. Not only will he volunteer at orphanages, but he’s also excited to do his part to preserve the environment.
“If I am traveling that much, it’s because I fell in love with our planet,” Quiñonez wrote on his website. “Time to protect it!”
Quiñonez recently touched down in Morocco, where he plans to work with the Belgian Development Agency to support agricultural development.
He hopes his photos will inspire others to volunteer their time as well.
No matter where he travels to, he takes this motto with him: “Traveling: It leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller.”
