Our story

Travel. Escape. Explore.
Surrender to someplace new.
Get lost in the twist of city streets.

Climb a mountain, just to see the world from a new perspective. Be inspired. Walk the shores of a far away beach. Laugh. See the light in a loved one’s face as they discover, immerse, grow. Feel the moment rushing through you.

Reach for a camera. Pause. Fiddle. Cajole. Grin. Retake.

Watch the moment slip away…

About  Monica

Travel-lover, international photographer
and FlipFlop Tree founder, Monica Dart:

“I’ve had a deep love of travel for more than 20 years, but many of my adventures have been solo, meaning I have very few photos of myself in exciting places. When I was in Cuba in 2015, I took a few selfies but didn’t always feel comfortable asking a stranger to photograph me with my camera. That got me thinking about how much I’d love to be on vacation AND have the photos to show for it.”

So, after 15 years in the photography industry and requests from various clients to capture their moments in unique locations across the globe, I decided to combine my love of photography with my passion for travel.

The Flipflop Tree was born.

THE STORY OF

The FlipFlop Tree name

“One perfect morning,
very early, I went for a long walk on an island north of Lombok, Indonesia. Out of nowhere it seemed, I came across the strangest sight: a tree with flipflop shoes hanging all over it. I sat down under the tree and began to think about all the travellers who had worn those individual flipflops – the stories of what had brought them there, and where they had gone before. What paths had those shoes trodden? And then I wondered where each flipflop’s matching pair had landed. Had they washed up on another beach, somewhere across the world? It occurred to me that each flipflop had its own story, just as every one of us does when we set out into the world.

In my mind, travel makes us storytellers. As a photographer, I want to tell your story through my images, and that’s what The FlipFlop Tree is all about.”
