This is Teresa Lim. She’s an avid traveler and embroidery artist.

Anytime she travels, instead of taking a photograph of her surroundings, she painstakingly sews a beautiful piece of embroidered art.

In a report from Bored Panda, Teresa explains why she takes the time to embroider her travel memories:

 “I started the project late 2014 after I realised that with today’s state of the art technology, taking pictures becomes so easy.

I wanted something more from my travels, to be able to take back a part of that place with me.

When I’m done with a piece, I actually feel like I KNOW that place, and that gives me a huge sense of satisfaction that I think just taking a photo wouldn’t give.”
