"Two little girls passed by on their bikes as I stopped to take this photo, and I thought that Burano must be a wonderful place to grow up. The lack of cars, colorful houses, and endless canals make the entire town a playground." giuliadini Burano, Italy 🚴‍♀️ passionpassport

"I went searching for this particular view in Griffith Park and tried to position my shot perfectly when I reached the edge of the mountain. I climbed off into the bushes, and as I stood and looked out over the city, all the lights turned on in the evening glow. I realized there actually is a rhyme and reason to how the city is laid out. I left with about 50 mosquito bites, but it was worth it." asenseofhuber Los Angeles, California, USA passionpassport

"Climbing the Quan Ba Pass, I never expected the bizarrely beautiful spectacle at the top. What followed was a whirlwind tour of another world, a lush valley one minute and a barren, charcoal wasteland in the next." dans_floor Tam Son, Quan Ba, Vietnam passionpassport

64% of Americans don't have an international passport. It’s normal to be apprehensive about the world. But in order to illuminate those anxieties, fears, and worries, we must seek the unknown. We believe in the power of international travel to open minds, so we created ThePassportProject. All you have to do is choose a location, pick your travel partner, and apply. Who will you nominate? Click the link in our bio to apply now. Photo by: luminousdiary

"Bondi" is an Aboriginal word that means "water breaking over rocks." "While I was here, I couldn't help but stare as these two swimmers planned their escape past the huge, crashing waves. As I waited for them to take the plunge, the sheer power of Mother Nature was overwhelming. I've never seen anything like it." photobohemian Bondi Beach, Australia passionpassport

"We were en route back to the lodge when we found a tower of giraffes walking through the grassland. This baby giraffe stopped and looked at us curiously before running, so as not be left behind. The more I look at this photo, the more I find a quality of assurance and beauty. So I titled it, 'It is not about how tall you are, but how graceful you stand.'" rosscouperphoto Singita Grumeti, Tanzania When have you stumbled but stood tall during your travels?

"When I think of Beirut, I think of family and food. I think of my mother-in-law making us treats in her kitchen — the ripe avocados, baba ghanoush, and baklava. I think of the family gathering for dinner at the end of each day and the animated conversation in both Arabic and English. I think how wonderful it is that I can be both American and now, Lebanese." kristin.edmundson Beirut, Lebanon passionpassport

"We spent the better part of an hour exploring the area around Natural Bridge. Usually, the river roars through, but during the winter, the water is frozen so you can walk under the arch. You can hear the river behind the frozen waterfall, which was unsettling, but staggering to see from the inside." tiffpenguin Yoho National Park, British Columbia, Canada passionpassport
