"My grandmother, an avid traveler in her younger years, told me tales of China when I was a child, and she had a photo of The Great Wall hanging above her bed. It's one of the few memories I have of her. I was elated to be following in her footsteps, so to say, as if I were tracing her path around the globe." @travelfreak_ Great Wall of China passionpassport

"La Paz was the last stop of my 26-day trip through Bolivia, and I've wanted to take a photo from this destination since the day I started planning this trip. I'd been told that I had to take a cable car to get a good view of the city, but it wasn't exactly what I wanted. I spotted a hillside along the road that led back down to the city; it was dark, cold, and apparently very dangerous. I climbed it anyway, and this is my all-time favorite photo for that very reason." @queridopassaporte La Paz, Bolivia passionpassport

"I'm Malaysian, so I can communicate with the people in Indonesia whenever I travel there. They even understand my sense of humor. Everyone is friendly and welcoming, and there's a beautiful scene everywhere you turn. I've visited so many times that Indonesia has started to feel more like a second home." @adlyaizad in Yogyakarta, Indonesia passionpassport

Italy is known as “the beautiful country” and for good reason. This boot-shaped European country is a favorite among travelers who love roaming its countryside, exploring its medieval cities, and climbing its mountains. From the Roman capital to the watery canals of Venice, from the art museums of Florence to the colorful towns on the Mediterranean Coast; Italy has something to delight everyone. Head over to our brand new Italy page (link in bio) to plan your trip now! Andiamo! Cover photo by: @its_saltwater

"Chefchaouene has seen a boom in tourism, but I was keen to see the city's daily routine, so I decided to explore at 6 a.m. When I'm photographing, I often remind myself that there could be a lovely shot behind me. On this particular morning, I turned around and saw this scene. Not only was the light beautiful and the contrast of the colors gorgeous, but it was such a beautiful moment between the mother and the daughter. It made the city feel that much more human." @thecommonwanderer in Chefchaouene, Morocco passionpassport

Equipped with cameras and a vintage Westfalia camper dubbed "Ruby," Renee Hahnel ( @reneeroaming) and her husband are on a mission to visit all 59 U.S. National Parks. They've traveled from the pristine vistas of Lake Clark in Alaska to the sandy beaches of Virgin Islands National Park. In their recent feature on PassionPassport.com, we caught up with Renee to talk about visiting these parks, photographing on the go, living out of a van for seven months, and why these lands deserve to be protected.

This Bahá’í House of Worship is the sixth house of worship around the world. Like the others, the Lotus Temple is open to all, regardless of religion or any other qualification. The building is composed of 27 free-standing marble-clad "petals" arranged in clusters of three to form nine sides, with nine doors opening into a central hall with a height of slightly over 40 metres and a capacity of 2,500 people. Like most goers, Nachiket felt "refreshed with peace of mind" upon entering this unique building. @nachiket_parchure Lotus Temple, Delhi, India passionpassport

Lions and tigers and Ethiopian wolves, oh my! George Turner ( @georgebturner) has seen it all. And after two years of working as a professional wildlife photographer, his favorite part of the job is still spending time with the animals. In the hopes of sharing some of his wisdom with you, we asked him about patience, failure, passion, and everything in between. It’s definitely worth a read (link in our bio)!

"On my way back home after a day of roadtripping, I climbed up here to explore this stronghold from the twelfth century. It was a very hot day in June, but a gentle breeze made the ascent easier. Once I made it to the top, I stood in awe of the view of Gran Sasso and Monti della Laga, a large, incredibly scenic mountain range spanning across three regions." @pierlu__igi in Rocca Calascio, Italy passionpassport

After a six-month journey through the Middle East, Drowster was struck by the beauty of this Sri Lankan mosque. He never expected it to garner such a response from his followers: “I discovered that it's possible to break the hate between people strictly with the power of beauty. In this case, I was able to show the beauty of Islam, a widely misunderstood religion.” @drowster in Colombo, Sri Lanka passionpassport

"I found myself exploring El Salvador's luscious landscape packed with waterfalls, volcanoes, and endless greenery. When I spotted the distant volcano framed between the sides of two mountains, I asked my travel partner @ryhormel to climb up the tree and give it a wave. Without hesitation, he turned into part-monkey and pulled it off with only a few minor battle wounds!" @asenseofhuber at Puerta del Diablo in Panchimalco, El Salvador passionpassport

"Over a breakfast of fast-food, a friend asked if I wanted to explore some of the other emirates in the north. I may have been sleep-deprived, but declining the offer just wasn't an option. We passed by Umm Al Quain, Ajman, Ras Al Khaima, and Fujairah. The road trip took us to an abandoned ghost town, a desert, an ancient fort, and a local fruit stand. On that day, I realized I should give the green light to spontaneity more often." @iamdocgelo Sheikh Zayed Mosque, Fujairah, UAE When's the last time you went on a spur-of-the-moment, fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants trip?
