Sandwich Harbour is the wild and dramatic location where the dunes of Sossusvlei drop into the South Atlantic Ocean. The harbour is only accessible on a 4×4 tour under the expert navigation of a skilled driver. It’s exciting, entertaining and educational all in one roller coaster afternoon.⁣ ⁣ But the real star of the day is the scenery. After a couple of hours driving over dunes, we stopped at a lookout point to indulge in champagne and local oysters while taking in the views all around us. Huge curls of sandy coloured dunes crash into the wild ocean below, the strong Atlantic winds blur the dunes like an impressionist artwork. It’s an otherworldly location and a top thing to do in Namibia.⁣ ⁣ #depthsofearth#discoverearth#earthspirit#gaytravel#iAmATraveler#exploretocreate#theoutbound#getoutstayout#keepitwild#scenic#letsgoeverywhere#thebestdestinations#lifewelltravelled#letswander#travelbug#qoqsquad#culturetrip#lonelyplanet#bbctravel#openmyworld#lppathfinders#lppathfinders#upandabout#mytinyatlas#welltravelled#worldtourists#mylpguide#wanderlust#travellingthroughtheworld#thevisualscollective⁣

Along the Avenue of the Dead – a 2 km boulevard that leads triumphantly to the Temple of the Sun – 248 steps take us to the top. Here, on the 3rd largest pyramid in the world, the hegemony of Teotihuacán can be re-imagined from what remains of a once powerful city.⁣ ⁣ Further along the Avenue of the Dead, the precision geometry of the pyramids of the Sun and the Moon contrasts with the colourful richness of the murals on the Temple of Quetzalcoatl. Striking carvings of a plumed deity, believed to be the rain god Tláloc, adorn the walls.⁣ ⁣ The city collapsed in the 8th century. But almost a millennium later the Aztecs would return to these ancient ruins in Mexico and claim it as their heritage. They would make regular pilgrimages here to pay homage to “the place where gods were created.”⁣ ⁣ #landscape#landscapelover#landscape_captures#scenic#landscapephotography#gaytravel#travelphoto#traveltheworld#ourplanetdaily#discoverearth#justgoshoot#folkcreative#amazingearth#nationaldestinations#exploringglobe#exploringtheworld#bestworldpics#worldtourists#theglobe#ig_travelerworld#qoqsquad#worldtravelpics#guardiantravelsnaps#culturetrip#lonelyplanet#bbctravel#mexico#ruinporn#historytravel#thevisualscollective⁣

⁣The problem with Paris is there’s just too much to do.⁣ ⁣ Rambling cobbled laneways meet grand boulevards where triumphant monuments to victories past, stand unscathed from the battles that followed. Stunning buildings appear to have swallowed the world’s finest art treasures, and towering basilicas showcase impressive stained glass windows.⁣ ⁣ Eating a pastry from a tiny boulangerie while strolling along the Seine will prove that Paris has a beauty that doesn’t fade no matter how many times you visit.⁣ ⁣ #cityscene#cityscape#cityphotography#citylife#justgoshoot#folkcreative#amazingearth#youmustsee#exploringglobe#exploringtheworld#passionpassport#worldtourists#theglobe#ig_travelerworld#citylife#getoutstayout#gaytravel#finditliveit#gaytravel#worldtravelpics#travelawesome#qoqsquad#traveltheworld#ourplanetdaily#travelblogger#passportready#travelblog#roamtheplanet#worldtourists#citytrip⁣

My first attempt at skiing last week was an excellent but tiring experience. While I’m not quite ready to go pro, the scenery at Alpe d’Huez was spectacular. Unfortunately, I didn’t see enough off it being face down in the snow most of the time. ⁣ ⁣ But on the odd occasion, we were rewarded with beautiful alpine scenes that made the achy limbs all worthwhile. ⁣ ⁣ Still, think I’m a beach person. ⁣ ⁣ #depthsofearth#discoverearth#earthspirit#gaytravel#iAmATraveler#exploretocreate#theoutbound#getoutstayout#keepitwild#scenic#letsgoeverywhere#thebestdestinations#lifewelltravelled#letswander#travelbug#qoqsquad#culturetrip#lonelyplanet#bbctravel#openmyworld#lppathfinders#alps#upandabout#mytinyatlas#welltravelled#worldtourists#mylpguide#wanderlust#travellingthroughtheworld#thevisualscollective⁣

Until the 18th century, the tradition in Lisbon was to have all white buildings. After the earthquake in 1755, the city was rebuilt with the colourful flair you see today; pastel buildings with ornate tiles. ⁣ ⁣ After the revolution in 1974 which ousted the dictatorship, an outpouring of self-expression and creativity took the form of political murals on many of the buildings. Today, Lisbon City Council pioneers an active role for public art to drive urban renewal.⁣ ⁣ #cityscene#cityscape#cityphotography#citylife#justgoshoot#folkcreative#amazingearth#nationaldestinations#exploringglobe#exploringtheworld#passionpassport#worldtourists#theglobe#ig_travelerworld#earthspirit#qoqsquad#gaytravel#feelfreefeed⁣#gaytravel#worldtravelpics#travelawesome#travelphoto#traveltheworld#ourplanetdaily#travelblogger#passportready#travelblog#roamtheplanet#postcardsfromtheworld#citytrip⁣

There’s nothing more relaxing than peering at the sun through palm trees. While we don’t spend a heap of time on beaches when we’re on holiday, when we do, palm trees are a necessity. ⁣ ⁣ This was at El Paraiso in Mexico. With golden sand, crystal clear water, idyllic palm trees, good-looking people and great food options, it’s possibly one of our favourite beach indulgences ever. ⁣ ⁣ #depthsofearth#discoverearth#earthspirit#gaytravel#iAmATraveler#exploretocreate#theoutbound#getoutstayout#keepitwild#scenic#letsgoeverywhere#thebestdestinations#lifewelltravelled#letswander#travelbug#qoqsquad#culturetrip#lonelyplanet#bbctravel#openmyworld#lppathfinders#mexico#upandabout#mytinyatlas#welltravelled#worldtourists#mylpguide#wanderlust#travellingthroughtheworld#thevisualscollective⁣

As the sun peered over the top of the Temple of Inscriptions, the green of the landscaped glowed with warm dappled light. Howler monkeys climbed through trees and over temples using ancient ruins as their fortress to survey the land. We sat on the top of the Palace, the home of once powerful leaders. The day was just starting to warm up, the inscriptions on the ruins glowing. Bus groups had not yet descended on the park. Looking across the vast complex of Palenque, almost completely alone in the early morning, was one of our top moment in Mexico. ⁣ ⁣ #depthsofearth#discoverearth#earthspirit#gaytravel#iAmATraveler#exploretocreate#theoutbound#getoutstayout#keepitwild#scenic#letsgoeverywhere#thebestdestinations#lifewelltravelled#letswander#travelbug#qoqsquad#culturetrip#lonelyplanet#bbctravel#openmyworld#mexico#lppathfinders#upandabout#mytinyatlas#welltravelled#worldtourists#mylpguide#wanderlust#travellingthroughtheworld#thevisualscollective⁣

This is a landmark in Paris called the Eiffel Tower. ⁣ ⁣ It’s quite popular. So popular, that we didn’t get a chance to make it up to the top because we didn’t book tickets online and the queue was too much to bear. But it looks pretty cool from most angles anyway.⁣ ⁣ #cityscene#cityscape#cityphotography#citylife#justgoshoot#folkcreative#amazingearth#youmustsee#exploringglobe#exploringtheworld#passionpassport#worldtourists#theglobe#qoqsquad#citylife#getoutstayout#gaytravel#finditliveit#gaytravel#worldtravelpics#travelawesome#wonderful_places#traveltheworld#ourplanetdaily#travelblogger#passportready#travelblog#roamtheplanet#worldtourists#citytrip⁣

Yucatán was home to the final fling of Maya culture and the over-visited Chichén Itzá is one of the finest restored ancient ruins in Mexico. Abandoned in the 8th century, it was resettled a century later when the Mayas that migrated here mixed with the many local tribes creating new architectural designs.⁣ ⁣ El Caracol is a testament to ancient architectural skill and their advanced understanding of astronomy. The dome is aligned with the motions of Venus, the god of war. Maya war bosses would use the changing position of Venus to plan the right times to raid rival groups. ⁣ ⁣ Such advanced scientific knowledge of the stars, but then …⁣ ⁣ #depthsofearth#discoverearth#earthspirit#gaytravel#iAmATraveler#exploretocreate#theoutbound#getoutstayout#keepitwild#scenic#letsgoeverywhere#thebestdestinations#lifewelltravelled#letswander#travelbug#qoqsquad#culturetrip#lonelyplanet#bbctravel#openmyworld#lppathfinders#mexico#upandabout#mytinyatlas#welltravelled#worldtourists#mylpguide#wanderlust#travellingthroughtheworld#thevisualscollective⁣

Luís Vaz de Camões was considered the greatest poet of the Portuguese language. He was exiled from Lisbon in 1548 for saying mean things about the King in one of his plays. During military service in the Mekong Delta, he was shipwrecked but survived, carrying his unfinished masterpiece Os Lusíadas ashore without getting it wet. ⁣ ⁣ Today, he rests in glorious fashion in Jerónimos Monastery⁣ ⁣ #travel_overtheworld#travel#travelpic#travelphotography#travelgram#travelphoto#traveling#gaytravel#instatravel#instatraveling#bestplacestogo#theworldguru#placestogo#lonelyplanet#wanderlust#tourism#instago#passportready#instatravelling#instavacation#instapassport#postcardsfromtheworld#traveldeeper#traveltheworld#igtravel#travelblogger#qoqsquad#travelblog#livetravelchannel#passionpassport

After lunch at the flea market in Lisbon, we were treated to some late afternoon sun poking its head out from behind the dome of the cathedral. Lisbon isn’t packed with huge sights like some other European capitals, but it’s one of the best places to hang out for a couple of days. ⁣ ⁣ #depthsofearth#discoverearth#earthspirit#gaytravel#iAmATraveler#exploretocreate#theoutbound#getoutstayout#keepitwild#scenic#letsgoeverywhere#thebestdestinations#lifewelltravelled#letswander#travelbug#qoqsquad#culturetrip#lonelyplanet#bbctravel#openmyworld#lppathfinders#beach#upandabout#mytinyatlas#welltravelled#worldtourists#mylpguide#wanderlust#travellingthroughtheworld#thevisualscollective⁣

Understandably, the big glass pyramid that was added to the Louvre in 1989 became an instantly recognisable Paris landmark and a source of much consternation. ⁣ ⁣ The objections were many: the modern style would mess with the classic French Renaissance architecture of the existing building, the symbol of death from ancient Egypt was unwelcome in a place of art, and the Chinese architect was far to un-French. ⁣ ⁣ I like it. What do you think? ⁣ ⁣ #cityscene#cityscape#cityphotography#citylife#justgoshoot#folkcreative#amazingearth#youmustsee#exploringglobe#exploringtheworld#passionpassport#worldtourists#theglobe#ig_travelerworld#citylife#getoutstayout#gaytravel#finditliveit#gaytravel#worldtravelpics#travelawesome#wonderful_places#traveltheworld#ourplanetdaily#travelblogger#passportready#travelblog#qoqsquad#worldtourists#citytrip⁣

Subtlety wasn’t the look they were going for when they designed the stained glass windows at Sainte-Chappelle in Paris. This imposing gothic structure was built to house King Louis’ collection of relics of Christ, which he purchased from Constantinople via a pawnbroker in Venice. ⁣ ⁣ With the Holy Roman Empire in a shambles and Constantinople losing power, King Louis used his relics and this impressive building to position himself as the monarch of western Christendom. He went on to ensure blasphemy was punishable by mutilation of the tongue, expanded the scope of the Inquisition and ordered the burning of Talmuds. ⁣ ⁣ He was the only French King to be declared a saint. ⁣ ⁣ #depthsofearth#discoverearth#earthspirit#gaytravel#iAmATraveler#exploretocreate#theoutbound#getoutstayout#keepitwild#scenic#letsgoeverywhere#thebestdestinations#lifewelltravelled#letswander#travelbug#qoqsquad#culturetrip#lonelyplanet#bbctravel#openmyworld#lppathfinders#paris#upandabout#mytinyatlas#welltravelled#worldtourists#mylpguide#wanderlust#travellingthroughtheworld#thevisualscollective⁣
