"I grew up watching things. Now, I look and try to absorb every bit of every scene I see. I'm also a student of history, so I'm drawn to anything with a past and a story, hence my destination. We only get one life (on the most beautiful planet in the cosmos), so I want to take in as much of it as I can." 📷 @_ankitbhattacharyya_ 📍Qutub Minar, Delhi, India passionpassport

"A friend and I were chasing waves in Santa Cruz, Portugal, when a big swell hit the coast, so we decided to get out of the water and walk to old town to watch the sunset. Along the way, we spotted this bell tower. Waves were crashing on the shore, salty air filled the atmosphere with mist, and the lighting was simply magical. When I think about it now, I can still smell the ocean's breath." 📷 @filippomaffei 📍Santa Cruz, Portugal passionpassport And make sure to get your entries for PPWilderness in today by 11:59am EST!

"This scene is an explosion of everything that made the Royal Highlander Festival so brilliant. People eople in stunning traditional clothing, an enthusiastic crowd spanning multiple generations, and, of course, some of the most epic snow-capped mountains in the world. We sat among the local crowd, cheering as we watched the relay races, tests of strength, and other sporting events. As we were cheering on one of the races, a local man turned to us and smiled. He explained the meaning of some of the local chants to us, and taught us the words so we could cheer in Layap with the rest of the crowd. 📷 @lostwithpurpose 📍Laya, Bhutan passionpassport

"I was on a 16-day road trip with my girlfriend. We traveled from Belgium to Luxembourg, into France, Switzerland, Italy, and Slovenia, then back through Austria and Germany. It was an amazing trip. When I took this particular photo, we were on a beach in Piran, Slovenia. I saw a storm coming and knew the sunset wasn't going to be very clear, so I decided to use my drone to capture the scene. This trip reminded me that some things don't need to be worked out in advance because there will always be a solution in the end." 📷 @rubenvanvreckem 📍Piran, Slovenia passionpassport

"We'd just arrived in China after a long flight and were exhausted. But upon arriving in Hangzhou, we discovered this old 'mansion' in the city center, the sight of which wiped away all traces of jetlag. It was amazing and modest — a brilliant insight into Chinese history and culture. It was everything I'd hoped our trip to China would be, and more, right off the bat!" 📷 @handluggageonly 📍Hangzhou, China passionpassport

What foreign cities and locations have caught your curiosity? Tell us about what you found and tag passionpassport! "Averio is known as the 'Venice of Portugal,' so I was very curious about this western, coastal town. Once I was there, I realized that everything I had heard was true. As I walked along the canals, crossing over countless small bridges, I was able to spot the city's the crowning glory: the Moliceiros. These large boats look like gondolas, and their bright colors and slender shape make them remarkably photogenic. Once used to collect seaweed and kelp, they're now used to shuttle tourists around the waters of Aveiro. The bright images painted on their bows reminded us of the city's rich history and how much it has evolved over time." 📷 @cherinemimou 📍Aveiro, Portugal passionpassport

"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

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.

Congratulations our PPTinyPeopleBigPlaces2 winner @cait588 who takes us to Agra, India! "We arrived at the Taj Mahal before sunrise, to beat the crowds.

“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

"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!

"When I was visiting Lisbon, my friend and I decided to go on an early morning walk around the city. After the sun rose, we found ourselves trailing behind a yellow tram in an empty street. We followed it until I spotted this puddle, and I can never pass up a good puddle shot. I liked this particular image because it captures the true, sleepy version of Lisbon, before the streets become overcrowded with tourists." 📷 @aguynamedriadh 📍Lisbon, Portugal passionpassport

"Typically, no business is allowed at the Yamura River in Agra. But the government has allowed this older man to operate his boat there because he has been shuttling locals back and forth for so long. We knew that the man isn't always at the riverbed, so we were just trying our luck to see if he was there. We woke up at 5 a.m. in hopes of a sunrise shot, and were gleeful when we saw him. Of all the shots I took, this was actually my favorite view of the Taj Mahal." 📷 @maggiepym 📍Taj Mahal, India passionpassport
