Sultan Ahmet Mahallesi, Ayasofya Meydanı, 34122 Fatih/İstanbul, Turkey
Walk into Hagia Sophia (Aya Sofya) and look up to the heavens to see why so many conquerors and their respective religions claimed this basilica turned mosque turned museum as their own. Visitors will swoon over the Byzantine gilded mosaics,...

Zoo, Xicheng, China, 100037

With a simple point & shoot camera, it's really hard for me to choose my favorite photo. We booked our safari with Into Africa, & Dennis Lyamuya was our world-class guide. We remain friends with Dennis 5 years later. The Serengeti was hot & dusty,...

Dadaab, Kenya
Not your average tourist hangout. A medical team of three, our translator, driver, and a van filled with hired police took us into a small village on the border of Somalia called Amuma. We where proudly taken to a watering hole the size of a small...

Koure, Niger
Walking alongside a herd of wild giraffes quietly grazing in the acacia-specked countryside is a welcome respite from the bustle of Niger's capital, Niamey. Located roughly 60 kilometers southeast of the city, the Kouré Giraffe Reserve is easily...

Tuma-La Dalia, Nicaragua
Unless you rent a car, arriving at La Sombra Ecolodge way up in the mountains of Matagalpa requires a couple of rides in packed chicken buses followed by 45 minutes in a bouncy cab along a semi-paved road. But just look at this little, green guy -...
