Hand standing around the world

I started taking these pictures for fun during my first year backpacking and after a few were collected a great friend suggested that they needed their own page. So, here it is! Although you may have to search a bit, every photo has a handstand in it.

The most recent is at the beginning. Enjoy!

    I am in awe. What a mesmerizing series of images-I was lost in time and space.

  2. alex

    I still think the stone mountain stand is the most spectacular….but the one with your family holding on and laughing is my favorite right now.

  3. YOU ARE AMAZING! I, of course, am partial to ChiangMai… But I also love the ones at the Sand Dunes in Peru (that must have been so difficult) as well as the “where’s waldo” one in Machu Picchu.

    So awesome! xo

    I Love them all Erica but fav is Bensheim, germany

  6. Ted Williams

    Okay, after much toil and inner debate I have decided my favorites. They are…wait for it…Ipoh (looks like the land of Perfect), Machu Picchu (I mean c’mon it’s friggin’ Machu Picchu dammit), and Stone Mountain Georgia (what a view, and confirmation that you don’t have go too far to find ‘take your breath away’ places).
    Fabulous shots and perfect 10 handstands, indeedy!! Well done!

  7. Ryan

    I’m going with Kamakura, Machu Picchu, Grand Central Station, Tosa De Mar & Granada. But they are all awesome!

  8. Varee

    Okay, I’ll have to vote. I picked my favorites and then read the comments, and was surprised to see others like both of mine: Grand Central Station and Ipoh. I would like to add the sand dunes in Peru as the complete opposite of the Grand Central landscape. I also like the Pampas, Argentina, because of the blue house. Generally, I hate blue houses, but I loved this one. The shot of Budapest was great, too, showing the Danube and the two cities all in one shot. And one more: The shot in Las Vegas is just sooo Las Vegas. And I have prejudicial votes for Folsom (where it all began), and Zug, Switzerland, because I took it! What fun.

  9. Kira green

    I love the handstands in Ipoh, Malasya, kamakura, Japan and Bensheim, Germany because the backgrounds are beautiful. But I had a hard time because I really liked the ones where you really had to search for you because it was like looking at those books Where’s Waldo but its Where’s Erika 🙂 I enjoy reading all your adventures and seeing where you’ve been. Glad your safe and having the greatest adventures. I feel like for a long time you had been a lost soul trying to find where you belong and now I feel like this is meant for you and that you are truly happy and it makes me excited to see that. I love you!

  10. gail exstrom

    I have two favorites but there are many I really like. I love the Grand Central station one and Boca ,Argentina. Many of them are like “where in the world is Waldo” but I like the Grand Central just because of the peeps looking on and what must they be thinking.

  11. tiffany

    I like Stone Mountain in Georgia. It looks like you are on the edge of the world!

  12. Elizabeth Evans

    This is awesome Erica! We miss you:)!

  13. Kristy

    Love these! Thanks for posting!

  14. Joy McGurty

    We enjoyed your smiling face and company on our houseboat at Lake Oroville. Nice to have you back, even if it was for a short time.

  15. delphine tocchini

    gramafina loves you…we were all so happy to see you…

  16. Creigh Haring

    LOVE this!! You have brought a huge smile to my face. Thank you! Can’t wait to see where you will handstand next!

  17. Andrea

    I’m inspired! I’ve been to a few countries now, and i am a teen, but I am going to do this wherever I go now! 🙂

  18. Your gymnastic teachers would be very proud of you. Be safe and enjoy your adventure S
