    10. ABOARD THE TRAIN TO YANGON
    Yangon, Myanmar

    This slow, trundling train from Yangon to Mandalay runs over the old British-built colonial rails and is a wonderful way to experience the country at ground level and hang out with the locals. There’s no air conditioning, even in the "upper class" carriage, which is almost an advantage because the windows are open for cool breezes, giving passengers unrivaled views of the Myanmar countryside during the 15-hour ride.

    Bagan, Myanmar

    It's a popular tourist activity to climb the temples and pagodas of Bagan to watch sunsets and sunrises, but some of the most beautiful moments can be found in the lesser-visited Buddhist temples of Bagan. (Love the last two shots? See more of @troylitten's stunning design-focused trip takeover from Myanmar here.)

    The Dana Nature Reserve was one of the first areas where humans settled. Speaking of which, can you spot the human in this shot?

    Rovaniemi, Finland

    Snowmobiling over frozen bogs and adventuring with huskies in Santa Claus's hometown sounds good to us. We'll go on the next Finland excursion, @landlopers

    Place du Panthéon, Paris, France

    The Panthéon in Paris is modeled on the Roman one, and it is impressive from absolutely any angle.
