Comment from Passion Passport:


"I took this photo on the last day of my visit to Cairo, when I was documenting the artisan community in al-Darb al-Ahmar, one of Cairo's most historic neighborhoods. A maze of narrow medieval streets, the district dates back to the 10th century when the Fatimid dynasty ruled Egypt. Said to be home to over 1,000 artisan workshops and 60 monuments of Islamic architecture, this is Cairo's undiscovered jewel. This man was one of many colorful personalities I encountered while wandering the streets. He is an erk sous (licorice juice) vendor, and the drink he sells is quite refreshing in Cairo's stifling afternoon heat." 📷 @wiltonphoto 📍Cairo, Egypt passionpassport

"I traveled two hours outside of Tokyo just to photograph Mt. Fuji, the cherry blossoms, and many temples — three facets of Japanese culture in a single photo. Though Japan is a small country, it has a rich, deep history, and looks like a fairytale. When I took this photo, I was so overwhelmed by the perfect scenery." 📷 @ytksato 📍Mt. Fuji, Japan passionpassport

Congratulations our PPTinyPeopleBigPlaces2 winner @cait588 who takes us to Agra, India! "We arrived at the Taj Mahal before sunrise, to beat the crowds. The muted light added to the mystical magnitude and sense of grandeur. Gazing up at the incredible architectural details, one can't help but stand in awe of this monumental love standing the test of time." Huge thanks to guest judges @simon.prochaska and @edgilardon as well as everyone who participated — we were in awe of your entries!

“I took this photo last December, when it was the tail end of fall and temperatures were quickly falling. Light wasn't the best. After soaking in the simple beauty of this spot, a weak ray of sun came out of the clouds, and I took my shot. It was all very quiet, with only a car passing by every so often. Spending a few precious moments here reminded me how lucky I am to experience all this beauty, how I love Tuscany, and how much I still have to see in my own country." 📷 @pierlu__igi 📍Tuscany, Italy passionpassport And there are still a couple hours left to enter our PPTinyPeopleBigPlaces2 challenge which closes noon EST today!

"After a roadside coffee in Chidambaram, my friend and I decided to stay a while and explore the town's Nataraja Temple. When we entered, we were greeted by a hive of activity: the air was thick with incense, the sun-drenched floors were hot beneath our bare feet, and the complex was full of men and women in technicolor fabrics. Despite the riot of ornamentation and the incessant beeping of horns from the road beyond the gates, I found something deeply calming in this giant, carved lotus on the temple ceiling." 📷 @josephowen 📍Tamil Nadu, India passionpassport

The Cathedral, the Chapel, and the Cave all make up this natural attraction in Carrera Lake or Lake Buenos Aires, depending on which side of the border you're on. The body of water sits on the border of Chile and Argentina and flows into the Pacific Ocean via the Baker River. This geological formation is accesible by boat, allowing visitors to admire the haunting beauty of these caves formed by 5,000 years of wave action. 📷 @andelpaulmann 📍Carrera Lake, Chile passionpassport

Join us as well as guest judges @edgilardon and @simon.prochaska for this week's PPTinyPeopleBigPlaces2 challenge! Travel is about discovering how big the world is and finding your place in it. As @nomadictyrant puts it: "As you stand at the base of the massive Pyramids of Giza; looking up, you can’t help but think about how insignificant we are. Our generation is a single page of a book in comparison to the pyramids. Civilizations come and go and, in the end, it’s all about making the most of your life." Follow these steps to join: 1) Check "Events” on PassionPassport.com for full details; 2) Post a photo/video relating to the theme between Tue. 1/9 and 11:59am ET Sun. 1/14. 3) Tag PPTinyPeopleBigPlaces2 and @passionpassport in the caption, and take us in the moment with you in 3-4 sentences!

"It was dark and rainy when we first arrived in Bergen. I had no idea what to expect from the city. As I explored the city the next morning, I was blown away by the beauty I found — the symmetry of the buildings and the cheerful colors, especially. There's a tram that takes passengers to the highest point over the city, so I couldn't pass up the chance to view it all from above. Bergen was a panorama of colorful houses and businesses surrounded by mountains, fjords, and a clear view of the wharf. I knew right then I'd be back one day." 📷 @nickcarnera 📍Bergen, Norway What cities and destinations have compelled you to return? Share you travels on passionpassport!

"Weekend night markets are one of my favorite places to hang out with friends. There's just an amazing mix of lights, sounds, smells, and tastes. At this particular one, I was showing some couchsurfer friends around when we decided to climb to the top of a nearby parking lot for a better view of the colorful tents below. Even there, on the roof, we could smell the food and hear the live music from below. It was so full of life; it's amazing how it can surprise me every time I visit." 📷 @pash.c 📍Bangkok, Thailand passionpassport

"While I was in Greenland, the sun was barely visible during the day — in fact the time between sunrise and sunset was only about 20 minutes. Fortunately, the sky was colored by the cold temperatures and this phenomenon lasted for hours. Every night, we sailed through the icy fjords of Illusiat in search of spectacular ice formations, reflections, whales, and seals. I can only hope that this film captured the unique atmosphere I was engulfed in." Check out passionpassport.com to watch @dennisschmelz ‘s full Greenland video. passionpassport

"I first saw Bagan as a teenager, emblazoned over a two-page spread in a National Geographic magazine. I literally dreamt of photographing this place, and it didn't really hit me that it was a reality until I witnessed my first sunrise there. I'll always remember the endless pagodas in every direction coupled with the smell of the cool morning mist, the sound of birds singing in the distance, and the sight of balloons gliding slowly through the air. It's hard to capture all of this in a single scene, but I tried my best!" 📷 @donaldhyip 📍Bagan, Myanmar Where do you dream of photographing? Tag your travels with passionpassport!
