It’s a strange business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.

— J.R.R. Tolkien

The door is a thing heavily embedded with symbolism, the first stepping stone on the paths of adventures and journeys of all kinds. Throughout the first six months of this year I took on a journey of my own, leaving the United States to intern and study in The Netherlands. During this time, I travelled to 13 countries, had all sorts of adventures, and met some of the most incredible people I have ever known. This photo set tells the story of six months through 18 doors, all leading to somewhere.
