    Last week, we landed in San Francisco, Baku, and Hvar Island, to name just a few places. AFAR’s Art Director @jseldon11, took us to Marfa, Texas, where he beat the heat with some ice-cold bottles of Topo Chico and a whole lot of sightseeing (you can check out more of his photos from Marfa here).

    Lake Naivasha, Kenya 

    The exterior of this little grocery shop is as fresh as the juice it sells.

    Marfa, Texas

    AFAR Art Director @jseldon11 braved the heat and traveled to Marfa, Texas, where he discovered that the town is an “Instagrammer’s dream and every street welcomes you with a surprise. I found this tiny art gallery as I was walking to the nearby Hotel Saint George for an afternoon beer.”

    Pompeii, Italy

    Walk through this archway and you’ll be standing amid the not-so-ruinous ruins of Pompeii. Though it was at the hands of a volcanic eruption, this famous site gives us a glimpse of what life would have been like almost 2,000 years ago.

    was lucky to be in Hvar in July, also known as the island’s lavender season. We can only imagine how incredible it smelled.

    Elephant Nature Park, Thailand

    No elephant riding here. At Elephant Nature Park in Thailand’s Chiang Mai Province, visitors feed and bathe these orphaned, injured, or rescued giants.

    Provence, France

    We can’t get enough of this lavender. Is it just us, or would running through that field be a dream come true?

    Baku, Azerbaijan

    Azerbaijian’s capital city, Baku, might have a growing skyline of modern buildings and glass towers—but tucked into the historic Old City are quiet reminders of the past.

    Monterosso, Cinque Terre

    The umbrellas that decorate Monterosso’s beach are almost as iconic as the blue sea behind them.
