In Photos: From the Facebook Page XIII

sunrise over Cuilatoa crater Ecuador 2 scaled

Lucky number 13! Time for another round up post of some of the most popular images that we’ve shared on our Facebook Page over the last couple of months.

Since the last post we’ve been busy touring Brazil, Ecuador and the Galapagos, so naturally we have photos from those adventures in this collection – as well as a random collection of images from previous travels.

We generally share one photo a day on the Facebook page which means we can’t fit them all in here - so don’t forget to head on over to the page once you’re done here so you don’t miss out on the rest. Otherwise - enjoy!

Monkey Tongue Rio scaled

One thing that surprised me a little bit about Rio was quite how much greenery there was, with hikes through verdant jungle available right in the middle of the city. One of our walks lead us to these monkeys, one of whom was not a fan of the camera!

Christ the redeemer at sunset Brazil Rio

Of course, no visit to Rio is complete without popping up to see Cristo, or Christ the Redeemer, who peers out across the city magnificently, with the view as seen in the shot below. We were incredibly lucky to visit on a rare quiet day, and we had quite the sunset view from the top!

Grass stalks sunset field light scaled

In 2013 I spent a week in Brindisi in Italy, where I was delighted to capture some rather lovely pictures. Read more about my experiences, and see more photos from that trip, in this series of posts.

Hellfire Bay

When I posted this one, folks couldn’t quite work out which country it was taken in. I can confirm that it is in fact Australia, in the Cape le Grand national park. Oh Australia. I need to come back and visit you again!

Milford Sound New Zealand scaled

Just a little bit to the edge of Australia and you’ll find New Zealand, where we spent a year working and travelling. This shot is the quite spectacular Mitre Peak in Milford Sound. If you’re visiting New Zealand, this has to be on your to-do list!

Girona houses river scaled

Girona was home to the first travel blogging conference I ever visited. It’s also a rather spectacular town, very much worth a visit if you’re in area. Also, this photo was the most popular photo on the Facebook Page in the last couple of months, with nearly 1,000 likes.

Bird island seychelles

Home! Well, almost. I spend five years growing up on this island in the Seychelles. Not a bad way to spend a childhood ;)

Part of the South Australian coasline. I don't have any photos of nightime chicken feasting, or the park I was at, so this will have to do!JPG

Another one from Australia, this time, South Australia. See more gorgeous Australian beaches in this post.

Glacier new zealand west coast scaled

A mere stones throw from Milford Sound, relatively speaking, are the Fox and Franz Josef Glaciers. Absolutely spectacular, and also must-see. See more reasons to visit these, right here.

And back in Australia for the 12 Apostles, the highlight of a road trip along the Great Ocean Road in Victoria.

Sunset Brindisi marina scaled

Another one from my trip to Brindisi. Possible my favourite sunset capture from 2013, although the competition is tough!

Bryggen colourful houses row Bergen Norway blue skies 2

At the beginning of 2013 we took a rail trip across Europe, ending up at Bergen in Norway. We weren’t there for too long, but we fell in love with this charming little Norwegian town – and vowed to return!

sunset otavalo mountains clouds sky fire 2 scaled

Ecuador is home to a whole range of impressive mountain scenery. This shot was taken in Otavalo, a gorgeous little town in the Andes where we ended up spending nearly two weeks.cuicocha lake otavalo panoramic scaled for web

A short journey from the town of Otavalo in Ecuador is Cuicocha lake, a volcanic crater lake with islands in the middle said to resemble guinea pigs.

Eagle scaled Otavalo Parque Condor

And another one from Otavalo – I’m looking forward to writing all about this town in a future blog post – there is so much to see and do here! This was taken up at the Condor sanctuary, home to many species of spectacular birds.

Barcelona Magic Fountain

Back in Europe with this one, and this is an evening capture of a part of Barcelona’s magic fountain. It’s a lovely sight at any time of the week, but is particularly special when it becomes “magic”, and is displayed with a sound and light show!

James Bond Ko Tapu islet Phang Nga Thailand

And finally for today, Ko Tapu islet in Thailand, home to the James Bond movie “The Man with the Golden Gun”, and now a popular spot for visitors to the region. It’s crowded for sure, but still worth the trip!

That’s it for today! If you liked this post, don’t forget to head on over to the Facebook page for the site to get more of these in your newsfeed every day, or check out the rest of the series for more images. As always – thanks for reading!
