Travel Inspiration: Bora Bora Travel Inspiration: Bora Bora
Bora Bora | The water in Bora Bora’s famous lagoon is so blue it almost looks touched up when it’s contrasted to the dark blue of the deeper ocean waters. Beneath the surface of the shallow lagoon you’ll find vibrant coral reefs buzzing with brightly colored tropical fish.

Travel Inspiration: The Wild Wall, China Travel Inspiration: The Wild Wall, China
The Wild Wall, China | The Jinshanling section of the Great Wall of China is more rugged and remote than the carefully preserved wall that tourists are exposed to in Beijing. Instead of vendors and large tour groups, this section of so-called “wild wall” caters to more intrepid adventurers. The further you hike along the wall, the less upkeep you will encounter. Watchtowers, staircases and even the top of the wall itself have begun to crumble after centuries of wind, rain and snow. More

It begs the question as you walk the winding staircase, are you journeying to the center of the earth or climbing upwards towards daybreak? The illusion is meant to represent a basic element of life, the inevitable return to the ground where all things emerge and at some point must return. Nine platforms separate the sections of the well symbolizing the nine circles of Hell, the nine terraces of Purgatory and the nine spheres of Paradise in the Divine Comedy by Dante. More

Arashiyama Bamboo Grove, Kyoto, Japan | Separate yourself from the outside world in a woven tapestry of bamboo. The tall stalks create a veil of green, distorting the light that comes in through the gaps overhead. This is one of the most photographed sights in Kyoto, but your camera won’t do it justice. Walk through the maze and find serenity surrounding in this otherworldly escape. More
