How’s your Tuesday been? Are you feeling the awesome might of nature outdoors? Spring is almost here, so your backyard will surely start blooming again. Here at Vegan Culinary Cruises we believe in the beauty of natural world, which is why we absolutely adore photos that depict avid explorers #traveling to green locales. Welcome to this week’s #TravelTuesday blog!

This week, we’ve compiled 5 travel photos by the wonderful travelers of Instagram. Our selection celebrates the various verdant faces of nature, from Indian waterfalls to Japanese forests.

Ready to explore? Let’s go!


Our first travel pick for the week is by @sanu_ihsan, presenting this gorgeous shot of Athirapally Falls, India. At around 80 feet high, this majestic body of water looks almost mystical in this travel photo, the cascading water similar in texture to the shining sky above. We feel that this scenic photo’s all natural vibe is a great introduction to this week’s photo theme.



You know that old phrase, “Greenland is icy and Iceland is green?” Well, this photo proves the latter. @myspotlights presents this vibrant aerial shot of Fjaðrárgljúfur Waterfall, Iceland. The land seems so alive, with a roiling, twisting texture to the cliffs that compliments the animated way the water seems to flow. While we’d love to visit this great locale, we’re thankful we get to admire this photo for now.



@_zach_zheng presents our next Travel Tuesday pick, a landscape shot of Canyonlands National Park, Utah. Here you can see miles and miles of mesa, the bright orange hue of the canyons muted by the air, belying the sheer scope and distance that they cover. The pale mountains in the horizon and the leafless tree in the foreground contribute to the sense of scale these canyons provide. We’d love to experience the Canyonlands ourselves up close.



Enjoy this serene snapshot of Kenroku-en Garden with us, courtesy of Kenroku-en is one of the Three Great Gardens of Japan, emblems of cultivated natural beauty. Here we see a pond in this particular Great Garden, an image of stillness and placidity that we hope to one day achieve.



Our final pick for this Travel Tuesday is by @wow_lumbini, and wow! Indeed. This pleasant burst of natural warm colors is from one of Zurich, Switzerland’s bountiful forests. Like a childhood memory, this travel photo makes us yearn for kinder times, for summer days that seem to last forever. Alas, like the road in the image that leads to an unknown destination, we must move on, remembering only the beauty that we left behind.
