thehotflashpacker Blog Gets a New Logo!

Before I announce my new logo, a few announcements:

  • If you haven’t already, follow me on Instagram.  Soon you will see interesting shots from the horn of Africa.
  • If you haven’t been to the website recently, you might want to check out the FREE STUFF page.  Not only can you get discounts, if you use the link for booking.com, you help support this blog at no cost to you.



I should totally be packing for my upcoming trip to Ethiopia and Djibouti right now, but I’m way too excited to announce my new logo:

thehotflashpacker logo














The story behind the photo:  I was in Spray, Oregon watching the start of the 2017 total solar eclipse and I attempted to take a photo of the partially blocked sun without a filter.  Just at the same time, a jet plane was going by, likely an eclipse viewing flight.  The result was the interesting, abstract of a mistake that is absolutely beautiful at the same time.


It was a tough decision to pick this logo.  I tried several designs and polled on my instagram & facebook pages.  Here is the runner-up design.















Did I make the right choice?  Leave your comments below.

    Since the design stems from an actual photo relating to a rare event compounded with an intersecting airplane, I would say you made the right choice.

    1. Thanks Mike. It’s a little abstract but will always have special memories!
