Hot Around The World


This post is about things that are hot, from bonfires and s’mores, hot weather, to hot drinks… I’m sharing with you a series of photos I’ve captured around the world that portray something hot. You might be sweatin’ a bit by the end of this post.

  1. Hot pink turban was a surprise! I like the tea time shot, the cornstalks and what’s up with the German hot dogs? Too big for the bun, lol!


    1. The sausage is better than the bun so why not make it bigger right? haha.. That’s sounds bad.
