Comment from Passion Passport:


"There are dozens of theories about how and why the Mayan Pyramids were built, the most interesting (and perhaps far-fetched) of which involves aliens descending to Earth and building the pyramids as monuments to themselves. Maybe that’s true, or maybe our ancestors realized the pyramid shape is the easiest way to pile up a bunch of rocks without having them fall over. All we know for sure is that this pyramid in particular is named "Kukulkan" after the Mayan Snake Deity, and 'itza' most famous pyramid in Chichen Itza. @bestjobers Chichenitza, Mexico passionpassport

"Although a number of the arches and apostles have collapsed, they say that over time the surf and salt will form new ones. On this day, as the sun began to set, I knew it was all a part of life. The process is beautiful." @lisdingjan Great Ocean Road, Australia passionpassport

"Snow was pouring from the sky while these snow monkeys bathed in the hot springs. For the hour I watched, they just seemed so human: how they fought, how they played, how they fed their child — like one crazy, chaotic family." @nugraharachmat Jigokudani Monkey Park, Japan passionpassport

This week’s Instagram challenge is all about PPIllumination! Whether you're an early-riser or night owl, guest judges @j.scud and @robmulally can’t wait to see your slants and slivers of light. Head to their feeds for inspiration, and follow the steps below to share your moments of illumination: 1. Post photos/videos relating to the theme between today 4/25 and Sun. 4/30 at noon US-ET; 2. Tag @passionpassport and PPIllumination in your caption; 3. Tell us about the experience; and 4. Visit our "Community" page (link in bio) on our site for full details and further inspiration. Here @joemagers takes us to a reflective moment in Hong Kong: "When I'm on Lion Rock, I feel like my life is insignificant in a good, beautiful sort of way. It's an insignificance that makes me conscious of my place in the world — similar to when I look up at the stars on a clear night."

"The internet has made the world seem smaller and smaller. With millions of photographs posted on social media every day, it can seem like there's no place left that is still fresh, wild, and untouched. Luckily, this is not the case. You just have to put in a little more effort and travel off the beaten track to find those special places — and they may be closer to home than you think. Perhaps, they are only accessible by kayak." @marselvanoosten Atchafalaya Basin, Louisiana passionpassport

Congratulations to our PPMonochrome Instagram challenge winner @bio.philia, whose image captures a glimpse of the correfoc or "fire run", in the streets of Barcelona. Here she experienced a fiery scene, where devils and spectators parade the streets as fireworks blaze among the crowds. Thank you to our guest judges @yellowillow and @aneeshkothari and a big thanks to all of you who joined us!

If done right, @magbrinik's portraits tell a story. A story about emotion, a life, and of a people, too. If done right, her portraits say something without speaking. Read the entire story through the link in our bio.

"It was so easy to get used to living in Dublin. The weather may be perpetually gloomy, but there is a cheerful vibe here. It feels intimate. There wasn’t one decisive moment when I decided Dublin was home, it was a gradual falling in love." @monikaharmonika Dublin, Ireland passionpassport

Only 20 people are allowed to see the Wave per day, and you have to be chosen through an online lottery. @trailofwonders visited in early March. “You’re given a map as a guide, but we couldn't find the markers to let us know we were going in the right direction. After getting lost on our way, we got there right as the sun was coming out. The Wave is beautiful, but not quite as big in person as it looks in photos. Still, we couldn’t help but wonder at how nature created this amazing, colorful place.” The Wave, Arizona, USA passionpassport

"The difficult thing about photography is figuring out how to convey in a picture how I felt in a certain moment. With this photo, I tried to incorporate the sense of beauty and mysticism I felt when the sun peaked through the clouds and illuminated this hilltop castle without making it seem too unrealistic." @thefella Hohenzollern Castle, Germany passionpassport

"We arrived at Yoshimizu Shrine a few moments after closing and set off down an isolated path in hope for one last great view before the sun set. As I stood on the hill looking out over the cherry blossoms, I could hear the gentle chime of bells and a soft breeze blowing through the trees. It was a moment not at all expected, but one I will remember forever." @sherese_romo Yoshimizu Shrine, Japan passionpassport

"We were getting farther and farther from the city center when we stumbled across this quiet, romantic scene. After I took the shot, I was practicing parkour in the adjacent alley and a crowd of elderly Italian women began to gather around me. They laughed and clapped as I flipped and jumped about. They probably thought I was crazy, but it was one of the best moments of the trip." @reubennutt Venice, Italy passionpassport

Congratulations to our PPLocalExpert Instagram challenge winner, @rosacs, who shares a quick history lesson from the streets of Berlin. Now a popular tourist attraction, Checkpoint Charlie is a not so subtle reminder of what used to be a divided Berlin, and has now become a symbol of the Cold War. Thanks again to everyone who joined, and a special thanks to our guest judges @annapurnauna, @sophia.gb and @nellyvels for sharing their favorite spots!

"In this Kyrgyz community, there is no school close by, and a teacher only comes to the area during the warmer months of the year. For the rest of the year, the Kyrgyz children are with their family, helping with daily chores as best they can. This girl was gathering cattle with her sisters when I took this photo and, for a split-second, everything was right — the background, the soft light, and the expression on her face." @fredericlagrange Little Pamir, Afghanistan passionpassport

"We see the typical view of the Opera House so often, and I wanted to get inventive when capturing it myself. Flying a drone wasn't an option without a license, so I got as high as I could myself. While standing up on the Harbour Bridge, I noticed the ferry come into view, and then found a small opening in the fence. It was then that I knew that I got the shot." @humaninsydney Sydney, Australia passionpassport

Where do you feel like a PPLocalExpert? Maybe it's a travel destination that's come to be a second home. Maybe it's a neighborhood spot in your actual hometown. For @eskimo, it's this spot in Bremen, Germany: "The atmosphere is so quiet and peaceful, I often come here for a break. The square reminds me of a paintbox and sets the mood, so I always leave with a smile." Follow the steps below to enter and swipe left for further inspiration! 1.

"I believe the best time to see anything is at sunrise. There’s something about the quality of the light, as well as having less people around that make it a special time of day. I woke up at 4am to see the Great Wall with no one else on it and had to convince the first woman to arrive at the ticket desk that morning to let me pay early. Once she let me in, I started sprinting." @king_roberto Great Wall of China Share some of your sunrise travel moments with us on passionpassport!
