"I used to travel just to cross things off a list, to see as many sights as I could. But when I got to southeast Asia, I learned to travel slowly. I stayed in a single place for longer, got to know the people and talked with them about how our backgrounds and travels have impacted us. And every night, I would watch the sunset. It was paradise." jonesaroundtheworld, Gili Trawangan, Indonesia passionpassport

"I watched a lot of anime when I was a kid and learned about Japanese culture and lifestyle through my screen. It was amazing to visit and see the culture come to life. I had watched many scenes in which school children went together to the shrine, so this moment was truly like anime coming to life." cowsgomu Tokyo, Japan passionpassport

"I decided to see La Sagrada Familia by Gaudí while visiting Barcelona and was astonished to learn that it had been in construction since 1882 and is actually not supposed to be finished until the 2026. On that note, I set out to capture it in a way that would pay homage to the construction itself. It is possible to find beauty in cranes and scaffolding." gallivanti Barcelona, Spain passionpassport

"The sound of a thousand fluttering wings echoing across an empty horizon; rose colors reflecting in each and every ripple. The beauty in Colombia is infinite and diverse, delivered in places and moments that feel almost like a dream. This particular moment was captured in the state of La Guajira, in the far north of the country where the desert meets the Caribbean ocean. After sailing in a small rickety boat across a shallow lagoon for hours, the horizon suddenly shifted into a blur of shapes. We had stumbled upon the lagoon's prized jewel; hundreds of pink flamingos all taking flight at the same time." easternsuns Camarones, La Guajira, Colombia passionpassport

"I have a feeling that Freudenberg is just like it was 200 years ago. The houses are in this old, typical style, and you can find a beautiful spot to sit down and enjoy the view of it all from above. When a friend visits, I don’t take them to Hamburg or Berlin, but to Freudenberg because, for me, this is what Germany is about." weawayagain Freudenberg, Germany passionpassport

"To our surprise, we were the only hikers on the trail, so we had the canyon completely to ourselves. The exploration of the canyon is never-ending: there are turquoise blue waters, tall red canyon walls, and valleys of green ivy. Being in that giant space makes you feel so small. It can be a little scary out there on your own, but I wouldn’t have it any other way." carleyc_az Grand Canyon, Arizona passionpassport

"'His parents need to work, so I have to bring him to worship,' his grandma told me as he played nearby. In China, children are often taken care of by their relatives. He might not know what his beliefs are, but he was having fun. Or maybe he simply believes in his grandma. The scene was just so warm, I couldn't help but take a photo." kwunkum Hangzhou, China passionpassport

"Antigua, Guatemala is always a great backdrop for street photography, so I find my self shooting there quite often. I prepped my frame for a portrait but, in a split second, a subject entered the frame. I was about to blur my background, but was glad I waited a little longer and grabbed this snapshot. It seems to capture the essence of everyday life on this street." monodelespacio Antigua, Guatemala passionpassport

"It was my second time in Vietnam, but my first time in the Mekong Delta.The people living in this region really do still get around on these boats. It felt eye-opening to experience how different their lives are compared to the busy city life I’m accustomed to in London." markshirran Mekong Delta, Vietnam passionpassport

"Rio is spectacular. It was beautiful beyond my highest expectations. It has magnificent peaks and there are so many places you can go to get an amazing vantage point of the city. But it’s also very colorful and you can tell there’s a great appreciation for life. There’s so much to see, so much to explore. I spent five days there and felt like I’d barely scratched the surface." twheat Ipanema, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil passionpassport

"The real beauty of Svalbard is not only the polar bears. It is that feeling of being in pure, unadulterated wilderness. There aren't many places on earth where you can have that anymore." shemimages Svalbard, Norway passionpassport

"You need to find the most interesting angles, wait for the best light, and do a lot of research to find new spots." Photographer Thibaud Poirier (tibman) is fascinated with the simplistic symmetry found in the architecture of libraries around the world. He finds that the slow process of shooting interiors suits his style. Read more about Thibaud's photography in the story on our website — link in bio.

"During my travels I make it a point to talk to strangers, whether locals or travelers. I think it's one of the most important experiences of traveling: connecting with others and learning that we are more alike than we first thought." alohacrabs Wat Rajamontean, Chiang Mai, Thailand passionpassport

"Many people are afraid of visiting Pakistan because of how the media has portrayed it, but my country is very hospitable and welcoming to foreigners. The culture here is rich and the people are generous and happy. I started taking photos because I wanted to show how lovely Pakistan is; I’ve lived here all my life and it is a place full of history and beauty.” asmarsphotography Badshahi Masjid, Lahore, Pakistan passionpassport

"There are animals that seemingly have superpowers: sperm whales that can stun and paralyze other animals from a distance using sonar; lizards and salamanders that can regrow limbs; birds that can fly for half a year; large hunting cats that can take down elephants; and insects that change shape, size, and even grow wings. We live in a world where each species is more incredible than the last." Video by: karimiliya passionpassport

Photographer harimaolee traveled 17 hours to reach the Larung Valley in Sichuan Province. Though the location is remote, it houses one of the world's largest and most important centers of Tibetan Buddhism: Larung Ngarig Buddhist Academy. Nearly 40,000 monks, nuns, and laypeople live under these red roofs. This view, however, will soon be demolished and rebuilt amid fire and earthquake safety concerns. harimaolee Larung Valley, Sertar, China passionpassport

"I was born in June, so I'm a child of summer and have always loved the seaside. Seeing the color of the water, the swimmers, and the umbrellas brought back my memories of my teenage years spending hours under the sun." gizemtoker Bozcaada, Turkey passionpassport
