"We were walking off the huge plate of ragu' alla bolognese we'd just eaten, wandering through the quiet streets of Bologna — the capital of Italy's Emilia-Romagna region. As we entered this piazza, I noticed a stylishly dressed signora making her way through a crowd of families. I hopped across the square to time this snap just as she walked in front of the monument. For me, this moment captured my love of Italy's effortless style and gorgeous piazzas." 📷@thecutlerychronicles 📍Bologna, Italy #passionpassport

“I was walking down a long, cobblestone stairway in Oia toward a small fishing village called Amoudi Bay. It was an unusually hot day, especially considering it was October, and the salty smell of the Aegean Sea carried through the mist. As I neared the village, I could hear the voices of Greek fishermen enticing people to stop-in and try the fresh catch of the day. When I finally reached Amoudi Bay, I stumbled across this home and was struck by how beautiful it was. It was so simple, and yet, so inviting. After snapping a photo of it, I realized that these moments are what is special about travel; they remind us to see the beauty in the simple things. 📷@emilie.boone 📍Oia, Greece #passionpassport

Norito (@norito_m) ventured to Narai-juku in Japan's Nagano prefecture to take in the nostalgic landscape that the area offers, one of an older Japan. When he arrived, he was overwhelmed by the charm of the town's wooden houses and the unique scenery that surrounded them. The streets were so quiet that when he took this photo, the shutter echoed through the air. 📷@norito_m 📍Narai-juku, Japan #passionpassport


“This was our first time in Marrakech, a city which overwhelms and excites the senses all at once. Visiting the Ben Youssef Madrasa, a former Islamic school founded in the 14th century that's noted as one of the most beautiful buildings in the country, was a highlight for us. For us, this photo is a constant reminder to not rush to get your shot ... Take your time, savor a place, wait for the opportunity, and seize it when it arrives.“ 📷@alongdustyroads 📍Marrakech, Morocco #passionpassport

"There are places in the world that serve as pockets of tranquility. But I was surprised at how peaceful Koysan actually is. It is as if the town itself was designed to cultivate a feeling of serenity. I awoke before dawn and headed to the Garan Temple Complex. As I sat, a cohort of young monks began their morning rituals throughout the complex. Save for the monks and the birds, I was alone in the complex and was able to quietly observe a ritual that has been in place for hundreds of years. I hope that this photo evokes a sense of calm and a reminder that, somewhere in the world, there remains a place that is devoted to positivity and kindness." 📷@afaulkphoto 📍Koyasan, Japan #passionpassport
