From camping in Australia's Outback to snorkeling with stingrays in St. John, TASIS graduate Taylor Tomosso '13 has had an adventure and photography-packed summer.
I traveled around Europe for a few weeks after graduation, and then was home for about three weeks (the longest time I’ve been home in four years) before I traveled to Australia with National Geographic for a student expeditions photography trip. I met people from all around the world who all shared the same passion of photography. We camped under the Milky Way, swam with black tip reef sharks, and we all learned from some of the best photographers in the world.
After one month of living out of a suitcase, I was happy to come home for a short week before leaving again, this time to Nicaragua for a mission trip at an orphanage. I loved seeing the kids, handing out clothes and food to the poor, and practicing my Spanish. I was able to spend a week with my family, but ten days later, I left for my six-month adventure to Liberia, Costa Rica, where I will stay until early 2014. I'm living with a family and teaching English, and enjoying the cultural immersion that this offers. My adventure continues! Below are a few photographs taken in Australia and Central America.
