Like taken straight out of a tale of princesses, adventures, villains or Eastern romances of the Arabian Nights; the Hawa Mahal stands in the so called pink city of Jaipur in Rajasthan as a one of a kind beautiful piece of architecture. In the middle of all the pink buildings that conform a pink city, the tale couldn´t be more charming and complete with such a palace. The translation of Hawa Mahal would be something like "The Palace of Winds" or "Palace of the Breeze" and was so named because it was actually a high screen wall built so the women of the royal household could observe street festivals while unseen from the outside. This wall is on the edge of the City Palace and connects with the women´s chambers or Zenana. What's your favorite palace or castle you've seen during your travels? #jaipur #hawamahal #india #incredibleindia #rajasthan #travelphotographer #travelphotography #lonelyplanet #IamATraveler #BPMag #TakeMeBackpacking #natgeotravel #bestvacations #earthofficial #travelblog #teamtravelers #BBCTravel #LoveTheWorld #backpackerlife #igmasters #MoodyGrams #WanderOut #Canon_Photos #Awesome_Photographers #TeamCanon #CanonBringit #keepexploring #exploringtheglobe #openmyworld #goexplore .

I´m longing some tropical warm weather now, remembering this day in the South East Asia trip. After a ride in a small traditional boat through turquoise pristine waters we arrived to the island of Koh Rong in Cambodia. We were absolutely alone in this small remote island. We spent the day in its white sand beaches swimming in some of the most clear and transparent waters I've ever seen. You could see the bottom of the sea so clearly that it almost felt there was no water at all. With some distance you could see the water turning into green and turquoise beautiful tones that in contrast with the white sand of the beach made an almost unreal view. It was a very "Robinson Crusoe" experience staying alone in this secluded island. What's your favourite beach? Where have you seen the most clear waters in your travels?

The patterns of the tea plantations, creates an almost unreal view of the hills, gradually fading into the horizon as an endless and never ending maze. Wandering around Munnar in a motorbike was a constant state of awe. Getting lost in a real mountain maze. What´s been your most scenic ride and where? It has been by train, car, motorbike, plane?

Mount Everest reaches the sky peeking over the clouds, claiming its title of highest place on earth. No piece of land has seen the world from a higher point of view. No land is above its realm. No one enjoys a better view of the world from so high. It overlooks everything from literally the top of the world. A land on the sky. Whats the highest and better view you remember from your travels? #nepal #everest #visualAmbassadors #vzcomood #LifeOfAdventure #EarthFocus #DiscoverGlobe #BestVacations #TheGlobeWanderer #Original_Experiences #HeaterCentral #BeautifulDestinations #RoamThePlanet #MoodyGrams #DiscoverEarth #WanderOut #Canon_Photos #Awesome_Photographers #EarthOfficial #MyCanon #YourShotPhotographer #TheImaged #mountain #sky #alpine .

One day I decided to get lost and visit whatever I could find out of "what you were supposed to visit". Got a motorbike, took the first road and see what I´d find. No expectations, open to anything and everything. What seemingly could end with very uninteresting places, ended being one of the best days of the whole trip with some of the most interesting, beautiful and colourful days of the trip through India. Went in the flower fields, talked to the local people. Saw their day to day life. Laughs, kindness, smiles, surprise, awe and vibrant colour was what I found on that day I decided to step out of the common and the predefined path. Have you ever been surprised at a day that was supposed to be boring and turned out incredible? Let me know your stories in the comments! By the way this woman is collecting flowers to make the Hindu garlands that later will decorate the temples..

The needle of the car's altimeter was marking 1500 meters altitude, only because the maximum height it could measure was 3000 m. The needle made the whole circle and a half. Yes 4500 meters. It´s crazy how landscape looks at that altitude in Bolivia. Lakes of weird and vivid colours: green, red, white; geysers spitting sulfur from the ground, volcanoes, some of the most crazy looking mountains, rocks that... Ok wait, stop... are we still in planet Earth? Was pretty sure Bolivia was in Planet Earth when I studied that location at school. So Bolivia is in Mars right? Ok, ok. They call this mountain the Seven colours mountain, for its crazy gradient of reds, formed out of different sediments and minerals. It emerges in the middle of a flat desert landscape as an other worldly feature that makes us forget we are on Earth. And yes, Bolivia, apparently is still in Planet Earth and it's unbelievable what we can see on this beautiful planet. What´s the strangest looking landscape or weirdest thing you´ve seen during your travels? Share the experience in the comments! I´ll reply to every comment! Would love to hear your stories!.

In the middle of the Andes, surrounded by steep hills and cliffs looking directly to endless void, the Incas built, this almost impossible citadel in one of the most remote and inaccessible places you could imagine of. Dated on the 15th century, it is one of the most stunning and magnificent examples of architectural and engineering brilliance. Machu Picchu means "Old Peak" in Quechua language. Most archaeologists believe it was built as an estate for the Inca emperor Pachacuti (1438-1472) or as a religious sanctuary. The Incas built, stayed and abandoned the place in less than a 100 years period, leaving when the Spanish Conquer was happening. It was known locally but remained undiscovered for the Spanish and was brought to the public attention by American historian Hiram Bingham in 1911. Heavy rainfall required terraces to prevent landslides and floods. They were layered with stone chips, sand, dirt and top soil, to absorb water and prevent it from running down the mountain. Multiple canals and reserves provide water throughout the city that could be supplied to the terraces for irrigation and to prevent erosion and flooding. So here it is another well deserved "New 7 Wonders of the World". We woke up at 4am to hike up from Aguas Calientes while it was still dark. It was kind of raining the whole time but we had some colourful plastic poncho to battle the rain. And the rain it also came with many clouds which could have been a bummer, but it gave to the whole area a moody and mystical feeling which made the visit quite special. A bit wet, but very special and incredibly looking anyway. Have you ever had to visit a famous landmark raining? How was the experience? It made the memory of it better or worse? Tell me your rain/weather experiences in the comments!.

Shortly before losing the love of his life during complications on the birth of their 14th child; the Emperor Shah Jahan promised his wife, Mumtaz Mahal ( title which meant "The Jewel of the Palace") he will never remarry and will erect the most beautiful mausoleum over her grave in her memory. He ordered the court into mourning for 2 years; and after 22 years of work and the labor of 22.000 workers; one of the greatest and more iconic monuments was created and completed on 1653 to preserve their love story thorough the years of history until our days. Taj Mahal was named as one of the New 7 Wonders of the World in 2007 making its way into one of the most iconic monuments in World History. When I was there I was really impressed by the detail and care taken on the construction of such a masterpiece. And its really impressive. To be true it was much bigger and impressive than what I was expecting. Have you ever had this feeling of beating expectations when visiting some famous landmark?? Or the contrary not meeting expectations? Let me know in the comments your thoughts..
