July 2019 Trover Travel Scholarship

We are inspired every day by the beautiful discoveries you share with us. To honor the vibrancy and value that each of you brings to Trover, we created the $500 Trover Travel Scholarship. Each month, we award it to one traveler who has particularly inspired us with their photos and stories.

This month, we’re thrilled to award the Trover Travel Scholarship to Michael Schuier!


Meet Michael Schuier! This avid traveler recently made the leap from gerontology student to full-time photographer. You can see what this pro is shooting with down below! A longtime member of the Trover community, he started out sharing finds close to home in Georgia. The feedback from fellow Trovers pushed his photography and travels further. His adventures often focus on the United States where he can travel longer and more frugally, noting there’s a lot to see! In addition to photos, Michael collects sand as a keepsake of his adventures. His mantle proudly displays a colorful array of sandy souvenirs from Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park in Utah, North Carolina’s Topsail Island, the black sand beaches of Iceland, and many more. As he pursues photography fulltime, Michael hopes to meet more members of the Trover community.  We asked Michael to tell us about his favorite experiences he’s shared on Trover. Take it away, Michael. . .  Continue reading

Sam Antonio’s #Culture discovery from Arizona

Trover Ambassador Oneika had a tough time pouring over so many impressive entries, filled with color, life, and amazing info! Oneika notes that she loves the vibrancy, emotion, descriptive info, and unique cultural phenomenon Sam shared from Heard Museum in Phoenix, Arizona. The museum is “dedicated to the advancement of American Indian art” and hosts the annual Hoop Dance World Championships. Sam shares that “hoop dancing is a long-standing tradition in many Native cultures. Passed down from one generation to the next, hoop dancing communicates individual and tribal stories using hoops to create symbols and depict animals of great meaning in Native communities. The continuous circle of the hoops symbolizes the circle of life and the continual changing of the seasons.” Thank you, Sam, for sharing your spectacular photos and highlighting this beautiful art! Check out more of Sam’s finds and follow him on Trover to see what he discovers next.

Thank you to Oneika for making the tough decision and to all of the Trover community for sharing your extraordinary examples of #Culture! See the full list to discover the mosaic of awesome all around us!
