First stop after arriving in The Netherlands? Tulip fields, of course. @hobopeeba shares this slow-motion shot from a red, candy-colored field in the north. These cheery flowers start blooming around the country at the end of March and flourish through mid-May. Travel tip: Head to Keukenhof, Lisse — in the south — around mid-April for the peak of the season, when it's estimated that more than 7 million flower bulbs will be blooming.

With a name that translates to “Land of the People,” Greenland just might be one
With a name that translates to “Land of the People,” Greenland just might be one of the most welcoming places to travel. Some of its most sought-after attractions are its hot springs, which on any given day can be around 100 degrees Fahrenheit — and given that almost 80% of the country is made up of ice sheets and glaciers, it’s easy to see why these natural, steaming pools are such a hit amongst visitors and locals alike.

What’s your favorite mode of transport while traveling? Planes are arguably one
What’s your favorite mode of transport while traveling? Planes are arguably one of the best ways to travel around Europe; they’re quick and often inexpensive, depending on the airline. But there’s something about the charm of riding a train — leaving a city, winding through evolving scenery of neighboring landscapes. It offers us a completely different experience and perspective, as well as the chance to be present at every step of the journey. @sennarelax shows us his view from a recent ride to Lauterbrunnen Village in Switzerland.

A city of many colors is an entirely accurate way to describe Rovinj, Croatia. With a population of about 14,000 people, even the words spoken amongst its narrow streets will prove colorful, as both Italian and Croatian are considered to be the city's official languages. Travel tip: Don't miss the Rovinj Port — you’ll get one of the most excellent views the city has to offer. (📷: @kardinalmelon 📍: Rovinj (Croatia))

Who's ready for snow? There’s something magical about the moment when it’s just started to fall. Time seems to slow, and the world gets a little quieter — for a moment, all you have to do is sit, and watch in awe. Here’s your daily reminder to pause and enjoy the little things. Thank you to @samhorine for capturing this beautiful moment in New York City — one that he likens to being inside of a snow globe. (🎥: @samhorine 📍: New York City)

The white chalk structures that form Old Harry Rocks took about 35 million years
The white chalk structures that form Old Harry Rocks took about 35 million years to develop, but it'll only a second of your time to feel utterly awestruck by their beauty. Folklore has it that the rocks were named after the devil, as it was said that he enjoyed taking naps on the white formations. No matter where the name came from, it’s hard to argue their aesthetic appeal as they stand tall amidst England’s blue waters. (📷: @uwo 📍: England)

Just an hour outside of Oslo you'll find yourself immersed in a world of open skies and the type of pine trees that will have you craving the holidays, no matter the time of the year. The small town of Kongsberg, Norway is also known for having the largest and most intricately designed church in the area. Travel tip: If you plan a visit soon, you’ll be one of the first to listen to notes from the church’s original organ thanks to its full restoration after 100 years.

“Classic Hallstatt, a straight-out-of-a-fairytale town in Austria, is over 7,000 years old and full of quiet magic. To experience its true calm, schedule an early wake-up call — it'll guarantee surreal views of the day's first light and with minimal crowds.” (📷: @chrispoops 📍: Hallstatt, Austria)

Lucky for all of us, @bencrockerfilms caught these gorgeous deer darting over the Scottish landscape. In Celtic myth, the agile and powerful stag personifies the power of the Other World (the supernatural, the godly), and untamed nature, especially that of the forest. Its antlers are an emblem of the regenerative and cyclical pattern of nature — they grow in the summer and are used for rutting duels, only to drop off in the winter to start growing again.

From the Louvre to the Eiffel Tower to the Cathedral of Notre Dame, the evolution of Paris and its history can be seen from the Seine — the connecting thread that silently winds through the iconic city as if watching over its renowned architectural masterpieces. Travel tip: Sign up for one of the many river cruises offered throughout the city to not only take in the astonishing views but to also discover the stories behind them.
