“I was heading south to visit my cousin when I realized that I was going to pass through the city of Rothenburg ob der Tauber, which had been on my bucket list for many years. The sun was just about to set when I arrived, so I just decided to follow my heart and explore for the little time I had. Though I expected the city to be crowded, it was actually quite peaceful. From where I wandered, I could see over the top of the city and its mass of alleyways. As I took this photo, the sun shone through a cluster of houses one last time before setting for the day.”

Legend has it that in the 9th century, a young Ethiopian goat herder and a monk found an odd plant and made a discovery that would one day alter the morning traditions of people around the world. That discovery was coffee. Though the origins of this drink can be traced back thousands of years to the countries of Ethiopia and Uganda, these two places are still very much involved in coffee culture and tradition through @NespressoUSA ‘s new limited edition collection. It’s a spirit of community, coffee, and tradition that resonates with each sip. #ad #OriginsOfCoffee

“Autumn is an event in Japan unlike anything I have seen before. Endless lines of locals walk patiently through the trees, snapping portraits of little dogs and families and friends and bridges and shrines. It is a spectacle of joy and color. I spent three weeks in Japan last November, during peak autumn. It was the number one place on my bucket list, and it lived up to and surpassed every expectation I had. It is the first place I’ve visited that, upon arrival home, I immediately wanted to return.”

“I was driving back through Oman when I saw this mosque and stopped to check it out. I was mesmerized by the sheer size of this place and quickly got caught up observing the people come and go. We have a lot of sects in the Islamic religion, but all of those differences seem to fade away in Oman. You see all kinds of sects pray next to each other and, to me, that’s the whole point.”

“The Colombian government has made graffiti almost completely legal. Instead of incarcerating people for expressing their ideas, they promote and support this behavior. The city actually provides free paint for artists so they can flood the city with art, as they have done in this neighborhood. Like a plant flourishing with bright colors, the art is a symbol for life and optimism, and I think we can say the same for the colors of our buildings and our homes.”

Located in Tianjin, China, the Tianjin Binhai Library is a five-story book haven that spans 362,744 square feet. The building features floor-to-ceiling bookshelves that are able to hold 1.2 million books and a large, spherical auditorium at its center, of which the library derives its nickname, “the Eye.” Some sections of the library don’t contain books at all, but simply the illusion of them, using patterned wallpaper to instill a greater sense of wonder in its visitors.

When @vstromlove journeyed to Pietrapertosa, Italy, he witnessed the beauty of the ancient village first hand. Located in the region of Basilicata, this stretch of land is celebrated as one of I Borghi più Belli d’Italia (the most beautiful villages in Italy), and is known for its artistic and historical roots. Being an avid photographer, @vstromlove couldn’t pass up the opportunity to capture the charming hamlet in the winter light.

The delicious smell of pastries wafted through the air, and I snapped my photo. I didn’t realize how beautiful the moment had been until I returned home.”

Southeast Asia has always fascinated Brian Pineda, but Myanmar piqued his interest more than any other place in the region. He was taken by the county’s dusty roads, golden sunrises, and beautiful temples — but when he finally visited, the people stole the show.
Visit the link in our profile to watch the full video from his travels.

Note: While Passion Passport will continue to cover Myanmar editorially, the government is allowing ethnic cleansing to occur while denying its existence. Passion Passport appreciates the beauty of Myanmar’s people and its lands, but supports U.N. resolutions to end military campaigns against Muslim Rohingya.

“I arrived in Mosta shortly after sundown. The streets were filled with people eating traditional Maltese foods and cheering. The feast of Santa Maria had just begun — a celebration that pays homage to the day that food rations and supplies arrived safely in Malta during WWII. As crowds gathered around the church square, fireworks lit the sky with bright colors. It was a moment I’ll never forget.”

It made me question our actions regarding the conservation of the planet. It made me doubt my abilities as a photographer. It made me be thankful for everything I have and taught me to not take it for granted. Madagascar made me grow.”

“The urban sprawl in Manila is taking over many of the surrounding valleys and forests, but just off one of the major highways is this quiet little village that seems to be millions of miles away from the international franchises right up the hill. The pace of life feels slower, but the proximity to Manila allows many of the same opportunities as the communities that neighbor this hidden village.”
