Dave || Jones Around the World  Exploring the world with my camera looking for adventure, festivals, and good vibes ๐Ÿ˜ŽโœŒ๐Ÿป๐ŸŒด ๐Ÿ“Œ CALIFORNIA ๐Ÿ”œ BALI? PORTUGAL? IDK

Did you know I lived in Italy for over 2 years? ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡นโค๏ธ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡นโค๏ธ

I studied abroad in Rome for a semester during my Junior year of my undergraduate degree, and then landed a job as an international travel guide in Europe (being based out of Florence and Rome) after graduating.
โ€ข
โ€ข
These were two of the craziest and fun filled years of my life, and I really do miss living in Italy. The tour guide lifestyle was hectic, but I had the best time doing it! โ€ข
โ€ข
Question: Is anyone following me an old study abroad student friend or came on a trip and I was their tour guide? Iโ€™m sure thereโ€™s a few of you out there! โ€ข
โ€ข
I took this picture last summer when I got the chance to finally return to Florence, and it brought back so many awesome memories. I got to try all my favorite food spots I had been missing, and even ran into some old friends. โ€ข
โ€ข
Florence really is one of my favorite cities in the world, and Iโ€™m hoping I can make it back again soon! โค๏ธ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น

I NOW HAVE 20/15 Vision! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป

You know how I got LASIK 3 weeks ago?? Well Iโ€™m excited to share it could not have gone better, and my eyes are now nearly perfectly healed. I had my follow up appointment yesterday, and discovered I have better than 20/20 vision! ๐Ÿ˜Ž I went to my first festival with my new set of eyes, and itโ€™s already my life so much easier. Thank you to everyone for your messages and positive vibes! If youโ€™re thinking about getting LASIKโ€” just do it!! Itโ€™s such an amazing feeling ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ”ฅ

This was probably my most normal outfit at @lucidityfestival this past weekend. I was actually shopping around a couple Thrift Stores and found this pin striped vest for $3 and couldnโ€™t resist buying it. What do you think? Good purchase? ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Thanks to my festival partner in crime @moflying for snapping this beautiful sunset shot of me dancing near Jiggy Town

LUCIDITY FESTIVAL ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ
โ€ข
โ€ข
This past weekend I spent 4 days camping, dancing, and meeting amazing people at this intimate transformational event called @lucidityfestival ! It completely blew me away, and was such an awesome last minute adventure. Incredible music, inspirational workshops, and an unbelievably loving festival community. I posted tons of photos on my Facebook page, so make sure you check them out! .
.
Thank you to everyone I met up in Santa Barbara this weekend! So stoked to reunite with everyone at another festival again sometime in the future! โ›บ๏ธ๐ŸŽถโค๏ธ

I love the sound of waves crashing onto the rocks during sunset. The sight isnโ€™t bad either ๐Ÿ˜œ

Doesnโ€™t this picture kinda look like a photo thatโ€™d be on a dentist office wall? Lol. โ€ข

Iโ€™M MOVING BACK TO SYDNEY!!
โ€ข
โ€ข
Iโ€™m excited to share that Iโ€™ve accepted a position at my old company in Australia, and will be heading back there ASAP. Iโ€™m just over traveling, so itโ€™s time for me to stop... Oh, and just so itโ€™s said- Happy April 1st. ๐Ÿ˜œ
โ€ข
โ€ข
Have a great Easter Sunday everyone, and hope you have some fun with April Fools Jokes today! Lol. โ€ข
โ€ข
While I would love to live in Australia again, that probably wonโ€™t happen for awhile! Iโ€™ll probably be heading back that way sometime this year though which is exciting ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰ CHEERS!

It wasnโ€™t the best conditions for Astro Photography, but I decided to give it a shot anyway! I love shooting the stars, because itโ€™s amazing what cameras can capture!

โ€œI CAN SEE CLEARLY NOW, THE RAIN IS GONE. I CAN SEE ALL THE OBSTACLES IN MY WAY.โ€ #LasikEyeSurgery ๐Ÿ˜Ž
.

Iโ€™m stoked to share my LASIK surgery went very smoothly, Iโ€™m already seeing 20/20, and will most likely improve over the next two weeks. Iโ€™m healing up fast, and am super happy with it! I know itโ€™s going to make my nomadic lifestyle a lot easier not having to deal with contact issues and glasses abroad.

Iโ€™m going to miss my glasses sometimes, as Iโ€™ve been told I looked quite handsome in them, but maybe Iโ€™ll get a fake pair for when I want to look extra sophisticated ๐Ÿ˜œ .

IM GETTING LASIK EYE SURGERY TODAY! ๐Ÿ˜จ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿšซ๐Ÿ‘“
.

Iโ€™m pretty nervous, but also extremely excited to not have to deal with contacts and glasses anymore. Iโ€™ve been wanting to get it done for so many years, and itโ€™s finally happening!! ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐ŸŽ‰
.

Fingers crossed for a smooth procedure and fast healing. Iโ€™ve got some epic trips planned for the next 4 months! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป

Oh, and thereโ€™s nothing wrong with your vision! Turn your phone upside down! โฌ‡๏ธโฌ†๏ธ๐Ÿ˜œ

Question: what are you stoked about in your life ??? ๐ŸคŸ๐Ÿป๐ŸคŸ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ

New job? Upcoming travels? Just bought a house? I wanna know!

Personally, Iโ€™m stoked Iโ€™ve created a life where I can explore the world, meet amazing people, and go a ton of music festivals for my job ๐Ÿ˜œ. Iโ€™m just on the pursuit of happiness, and having a ton of fun!
Thanks to @soul_panther for being an epic model for this sunset shot! One of my favorite pics from Island Life a couple months ago!
