Into the Abyss at the Jin Mao Tower in Shanghai.
----
The Jin Mao Tower is the third highest tower in Shanghai and the only one that offers 360 degree views
While the skyline views are awesome, it was the incredible view down the center of the tower from the 88th floor.
it looks like something out of a science fiction movie.
If you ever get to Shanghai, don't miss this.

Some Koala cuteness from South Australia.
—-
One of the things I loved most about our time in South Australia was gett to see Koala Bears up close.
They just have the most animated faces and cool personalities.
They don’t move very much or very fast, so they are easy to photograph.

Have you seen a Koala Bear in the wild?

The Old man of Storr stands guard on the Isle of Skye.
-------
You have to visit the Isle of Skye if you head to the Highlands of Scotland. And you must visit the Old Mann of Storr while you are there.
Many of the photos I see are from the climb up but there is a great view as you approach that gives you this particular view.

It really sums up the beauty of the Isle of Skye. ——

Stormy skies over Peles Castle in Romania.
——
After watching Game of Thrones last night and seeing all those castles I just had to post this photo.
With mountains in the background and the looming weather I thought this fit with the GOT theme.
—-
Peles Castle is a place you have to visit if you travel to Romania. Built in 1873 it really captures the whole Gothic Revival architecture.

Dramatic skies over the Grand Canyon.
——
Watching the weather roll in over this landscape was incredible. It seemed like the view was endless.

It is like all the elements are coming together in one photo. The sun, the clouds, the weather and of course the canyon.

Colours change on the road to Hopewell Rocks in New Brunswick, Canada.

There is nothing like the the open road. Especially during the changing of the seasons. I know we are transitioning into spring but I just had to share this image taken last fall in NB.

One of the things I love about having the drone is getting different perspectives like this. —-

Magical skies in the Cayman Islands.
—-
The Cayman Islands was by far one of our favourite islands of all time. The people are amazing, the food to die for and the sunsets weren’t too bad either 😊.

With it being so close to the mainland I can see why so many expats choose to live here.

Old cars line the streets in Havana, Cuba.
—-
One of the main reasons I wanted to go to Cuba was to see all the cool old cars.
Well I wasn’t disappointed. While walking around Old Cuba it felt like stepping back in time.
Luckily we were staying at the @iberostargrandpackard which put us in a great location.
—-
This particular shot was just inside Chinatown. It really embodies the whole essence of Cuba in one shot.

Just hangin’ on the beach with my friends!

South Africa is definitely one of our favourite countries in the world.
The landscapes are epic and the wildlife seems like it is everywhere.

I really had to reach back into the vault for this shot. It was taken just after we cycled 12,000 km from Cairo to Cape Town and we were enjoying a little R&R afterwards.

We rented a car and headed to Simonstown, where we heard there were penguins.

Penguins in South Africa? Right!

Sure enough there they were. And these four just hung out and posed for us for like 10 minutes!

What destination has surprised you the most??

Sunset at Morrow Castle in Havana, Cuba.
———
Just down from the @iberostargrandpackard where we were staying was the Malecon. This offered us a spectacular view of the bay and this castle.

Built in 1589, this castle protects the entrance to Havana Bay. The lighthouse was added in 1846 and the walls are really well preserved.

This view is taken from the Malecon, where locals gather each evening to stroll, fish and enjoy the warm sea breezes.

Havana is one of those places that we really loved. A perfect blend of culture, architecture and friendly people.
This is one place we know we will return to.

Morning light over the incredible landscape of Cappadocia, Turkey.
——
I will never forget that morning. As we shivered getting in the ballon before dawn , I was wondering if this was going to live up to the hype.

Well, I am happy to report that it did. We have been fortunate to see a lot of amazing things in our travels but there is nothing like floating silently over the mystical landscape of Cappadocia in a hot air ballon.

When the sun peaks over the horizon and light the ground below you realize just how amazing this planet is.

We loved it so much we did it twice. This is something you have to do if you are ever in Turkey. It will be unforgettable!
