Comment from Passion Passport:


"What I love most about traveling is discovering new cultures, people, and mentalities. I've learned to discover myself through new experiences and challenges. But before dreaming of elsewhere, it's important to really know where we come from and appreciate our roots." @audreyrivet Niagara Falls, Canada How do you define "roots" and where are they for you? Tag your adventures with passionpassport, and share something you learned!

"I'm enamoured with the skyline of this city and originally intended to get a shot of the sunrise. But when I saw the light, fog, and sun all in one frame, I knew I had captured the feeling I was looking for. I love Shanghai, so I want to try my best to record these beautiful, fleeting moments whenever they occur." @youknowcyc_ Shanghai, China passionpassport

Comment from Passion Passport:


Sometimes travel hurls you into go-go-go mode, and sometimes it forces you to stop in your tracks. We’re looking for the latter in this week’s PPLostInThought Instagram challenge with guest judges @emmett_sparling, @jordhammond, and @kazimghafoor! To enter: 1. Post photos/videos relating to the theme between today 6/20 and noon US-ET 6/25; 2. Tag @passionpassport and PPLostInThought in the caption; 3. Tell us a story with your caption: Where were you? What made you pause? What was going through your head in the moment?; and 4. Visit the "Community" tab on PassionPassport.com for full details! Here @kazimghafoor takes us to Weymouth, Dorset, UK: "The weather was miserable with rain lashing down and unrelenting gusts of wind. I decided to climb a big hill to get a vantage point of the coastline. After awhile of not seeing any other humans, I reached the summit. To my complete surprise, a lady in her 60s was at the top, enduring the horrendous weather, painting the rugged coastline. It turns out she’s an artist with an exhibition coming up, and she was seeking some inspiration. She was very kind and allowed me to take this photo. The dedication she showed to her craft was inspiring!"

"The beauty of photography is that there are no rules — you can play fantasy and always look for new things. The purpose here is to show people the world seen through a different lens, so that, as a viewer, you're seeing what surrounds you through someone else's eyes." @paolovillani Rome, Italy passionpassport

"Because a trip to the mountains allows you to see and experience something new each time, no two trips are ever the same. My favorite thing about this trip was seeing these chamois bucks. These fast and precise climbers are the real locals of the area. I watched them playing on the mountainside until the sun was gone completely." @rawmeyn Berner Oberland, Switzerland passionpassport

Comment from Passion Passport:


"The Golden Gate Bridge is a great location for photographers because there will be different views no matter what time of day you visit. I wanted to be there during sunset, but couldn't make it in time. It was still a memorable night for me, though, since it was my first time capturing low fog on the bridge during the Blue Hour, when the sun has gone down but there are still rays of light keeping the sky from becoming dark." @raphycruz San Francisco, California, USA passionpassport

"We drove by a school just outside of Nyaung Shwe and asked the teacher sitting outside if we could chat with the children. With no walls to separate the classes, it was super noisy, but this boy was very curious and eager to pose. I've been travelling around Asia for a couple of months now, and I've found that these kids and the people of Myanmar in general are some of the sweetest and most joyful people I've ever met." @grabyourbagsnl Nyaung Shwe, Myanmar passionpassport

"There’s a lot of awe and wonder in seeing people create these rugs for literally hours — sometimes they’re up from sunrise to sunset just finishing one. And then they pass through this beautiful, intricate piece of art that they just worked so hard to create. There’s something about the demolishment that's also beautiful. It becomes a new creation.” @carlymask Antigua, Guatemala passionpassport

"Key Gompa is an 11th century Buddhist Monastery 13,500 feet up in the Himalayan Mountains. This region is one of the most inhospitable in all of India during the winter and, as I sat in subzero temperatures, the wind shrieking in my ears, I thought about how difficult it would be to live here. But just then — beneath the wind — I heard the tranquil chanting of the monks from the monastery and realized that these monks live here year round, exhibiting the same smiles, energy, and hospitality, rain or shine, hot or cold. They helped me find contentment in simplicity, and I’m thankful for that every day." @nomadictyrant Key Monastery, India Where are some of the harshest climates and conditions you've visited on your travels?

"It was a rather warm spring day when we started our hike, so we opted for sandals and water shoes instead of waterproof boots. Big mistake! Our feet were cold and numb after the river crossings, which made the trek into the slot canyon an icy challenge. We made it, though, and I had enough feeling in my toes to maneuver around for some photos while my feet thawed." @walasavagephoto Kanarra Creek Canyon Waterfall, Utah, USA passionpassport

Comment from Passion Passport:


"If you don't travel, you start to believe that the world is what you've seen. That the neighborhood gossip could tear you apart. That the seasons are a certain way and always will be. That this career is the only one. That things are just that way. That destiny is hard and linear. ⠀ But when you travel, when you shake the shackles and take a look, you see the billion ways the world shows her face and bares her skin, and something opens up. You see that the way you live is not the only way to live. The world as you see it could look much different. What you believe is not the only thing to believe. What you have or don't have is not the only having. ⠀ When you travel, you become humble. You are not a god. The world has many faces. You have many paths." ⠀ Words by: @jedidiahjenkins Photo by: @samanthamarq
