Travel, by its very nature, is all about a switch in perspective. When we're in unfamiliar territory, things that seemed incredibly important in our everyday lives can suddenly see trivial.

Here are a few of my favorite places in the world to look down across the rooftops.
Fascinated by the Galapagos Islands? So am I. We haven't visited them yet, however I've scoured through more photos and blogs in preparation of the day we do that I thought I'd share some of these with you. The best news is, most of these come from fellow travelers. Enjoy Darwin's wonder!

Come with us as we take a look at what this little beauty can do while capturing the fall beauty of beautiful British Columbia.
We fell hard, though a bit reluctantly, for the photogenic and gritty Porto, but Lisbon threw its own kind of spell over us. We had less than a week in Lisbon, but grew to love the rhythm of the city. Lisbon is the largest city in Portugal and is drenched in history. Here are 10 of our personal favorite things to do in Lisbon.
A little while ago our friends at Travel With Kevin and Ruth nominated us to take part the the Capture the Colour Photo Contest put on by Travel Supermarket. The concept is simple: write a post showcasing travel photographs which best capture the color of five categories: red, blue, green, yellow and white. Here are a few of our favorite photos from our last trip through Mexico, Portugal, Greece and Morocco ...
We're trying something new this week. I'm finding that Pinterest is a great tool for planning trips, and even getting inspiration for great places to visit. So, in the spirit of sharing some of the beautiful photos we've found, and inspiring everyone to travel more, we're sharing 10 gorgeous photos of castles from around the world.
