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!

Looking over the 12 Apostles in Australia.
—-
When we were in Australia we had the chance to do a walk to the 12 Apostles. This was the perfect way to see these magnificent creations.

This particular shot was taken from a helicopter. Something I really recommend doing if you travel there.

It gives you a whole new appreciation for the rugged coastline of Australia.

Sunset at the crossroads.
—-
Looking down from the top of the Westin hotel gives you a birdseye view of this beautiful city.
I find that Ottawa comes alive at night and this shot really captures the excitement as the sun goes down.

Ottawa is one of those cities that surprises you. With a great food scene, the worlds largest naturally frozen ice rink, and so many sites to see, Ottawa is a great year round destination.

Taking in the architectural marvel that is Notre Dame Cathedral.
——
It is funny that out of all of the times that we have been to Ottawa we never visited the inside of Notre Dame.

Well this time we remedied that and were happy that we did. It is just beautiful!

Built in 1846 in the neo-gothic style it really takes your breath away when you walk in.

The beautiful gaze of the Arctic Fox.
—-
When we were up in the Arctic we saw a few of these guys but they were always so fast and a little too far away to grab a great shot of.

So, when we had the chance to visit @parcomega we jumped at the chance.

This place is amazing! We spent almost a full day here. The park consists of over 2000 acres and houses some pretty cool animals.

This is not a zoo. It is a place where the animals are given space to roam and live.

If you get a chance to visit make sure you take it! —— #parcomega #arcticfox #wildlifephotography #myottawa
