How far will you go to tell your mom you’re okay? Round the globe far? Well, that is exactly what Jonathan Quiñonez did.

Feeling the brunt of an exhausting job as a consultant, Jonathan, who is unmarried and basically “Single”, decided to travel the world on the savings he had built up during the past years.

But there was a problem. He was worried that during his travels, his Mexican mother would worry too much about him and his whereabouts but who knew, God had better plans!

Jonathan was in Cuba and wanted to inform his mother he was fine. Unfortunately, there was bad network and he couldn’t get through her. He decided to click a picture with a ply card saying ‘Mom, I’m fine’ and send it to her whenever he was in a good network zone! It worked like magic!

Pizza is fine, toppings are fine, and so am I, mom!

There was no stopping after this and Jonathan started clicking ‘Mom, I am fine’ photos at every destination he visited.

His mother was super happy with his caring son and the son was super happy too for his ‘Mom, I’m fine’ photo series garnered him more than 175,000 Instagram followers!

So how has his journey been so far? Well, let’s have a look through the eyes of a loving son!
