From our General Manager Riel:

When I lived in Las Vegas, I discovered that there were only 2 or 3 places in the Americas with mud pots and mud volcanoes. One was in driving distance at the Salton Sea. I picked up a Turkish friend in Los Angeles and we made a day trip of it, watching and listening to the mud pots. The sun lined up just right for us to make some curious shadows.

I loved Basel so much, I moved there and lived for 6 months until I ran out of money and permission to stay in the country. I loved walking around the town. So walkable! I was enchanted by the public fountains with great tasting water. This one takes the form of a Basilisk. The fountains are clearly hundreds of years old.

The european island country of Malta is a favorite get-away for British and German tourists. To get away from the tourists, you can take a bus to Gozo which is nearby. The fanciest hotel I've ever stayed at was there in Gozo, the Kempinski. To this day, I have no idea how much it all cost.

Overlooking a tannery in Fez - I recently took a trip to Morocco (in July). One of the highlights of that trip, for me, was visiting Fez.

Another highlight from Morocco was doing a camel trek into the Sahara desert and spending one night out there in a desert camp.

I just got back from a trip to Croatia and Slovenia. This is a panorama shot from Rovinj, Croatia. Rovinj is on the Istrian Peninsula, close to Italy and we ate some really great meals and drank some great while we were in that area. I would highly recommend renting a car to travel in Croatia so that you are able to experience places like Rovinj and Motovun (also on the Istrian Peninsula), which are a little more off the beaten path.

Wild horses in Apuseni Mountains of Romania. We went camping and recalling the view of of these horses running in a wide, green valley traced by a river ... still leaves me breathless.

I took this in Munich in November, with the last leaves of fall hanging on before winter starts. This pic makes think about sleety, cobbled streets, Christmas markets, and warming up with a bratwurst & gluwein!

Lastly, Dani, who runs our Social Media sent us this photo from her trip last year to Kenya:

I took this photo on my trip to Kenya. Seeing wild elephants so close opened my eyes and made me more passionate about why responsible tourism is important. Eaverytime I look at this face, im transported back to the plains of Kenya. Seeing animals in the wild leaves you speechless, and no other experience can compare to a a 4ton creature standing 5 feet from your jeep.

We hope these help inspire you and give you a look into the wonderful people who work to help you make your dream around-the-world trip a reality.   What are your favourite travel photos?
