Each day, we have the opportunity to try something new in our lives. Whether it’s a small change, like wearing a different colored tie, or a big one, like committing to a new hobby or letting go of someone who used to be close to you, every decision we make contributes to our continued growth as people. While our opportunities may be hindered in the current climate, that doesn’t mean that we can’t plan for future endeavors, like starting a business or going on vegan travels. Welcome to this week’s Travel Tuesday blog.

This week, we’ve got a great gallery of photos that depict locales with breathtaking heights and scope. There’s cliffs and canyons, temples and islands, different destinations of varying climates and colors. The best thing about traveling is the chance to experience something truly new in the places that we visit, and you’ll bet that we’ll visit a few of these locales once it’s safe to do so again.

Ready? Let’s go!


First up is this breathtaking shot from Canyonlands National Park by @kari_boivin. Here we see the sheer vastness of the canyon, accented by the person in the shot who puts the entire landscape into perspective. We can even see the further parts of the canyon receding into the blue horizon, due to its sheer size. Places like these pique our thirst for adventure.



The flower-bearing plains of Juta, Georgia looks quite verdant in this photo by @tiko.chitadze. Here we see imposing slopes and calming meadows, with a foreground of colorful flowers that provide a dynamic contrast to the rocky cliffs beyond it. We can imagine ourselves running across these grassy sloped destinations, feeling the air as we bask in the alpine beauty of the valley.



@kharissarvida presents this photo from within the Bayon Temple, Cambodia. The physical remnants of great civilizations often start to look like an extension of nature, and this shot makes it look like the intricate carvings and structures of the ancient temple were grown from the earth, not built. There’s a certain sense of timelessness when it comes to the buildings of the Khmer civilization, a feeling that despite the passing of their golden age, their creations would endure and persist for ages to come.



This snapshot of Phangnga, Thailand by @wo.shi.tom looks absolutely stunning, the misty clouds of the expanse of sky accenting the shapes of the islands far off in the horizon. There is both stillness and motion in this frame, especially when you contrast the islands, the clouds and the human figure standing on the balcony. Ah, to gaze longingly towards the horizon! Even when you’re standing still, you can still be actively exploring.



Now here’s a thematic bookend to this week’s Travel Tuesday blog. Our final pick of the week comes from @mr_pupp3t, showcasing a great perspective shot from Yahangala, Sri Lanka. According to the epic Ramayana, this location was the burial site of King Ravana, a powerful fiend and the foe of Lord Rama. Even without such enriching cultural context, the view from this place must be amazing, high above the clouds with grassy mountains stretching across the horizon.

That’s it for this week’s Travel Tuesday. Be sure to visit us next week for a fresh batch of photos to inspire your future travel itineraries. When it’s safe to travel again, why not join in?
