Photo by @chiaragoia | Workers hang from the top of the Elbphilharmonie, a concert hall in Hamburg, to clean its windows. This procedure happens only three times a year, and it requires about three weeks of work each time to clean a surface of more than 16,000 square meters (about the size of two soccer fields!).

Photo by @daisygilardini | Bow Lake in Alberta’s Banff National Park is one of my favorite locations to visit during the fall. The tundra turns red, and at sunrise the lake is often steaming because of the temperature difference between the air and the water.
I woke up early on this morning to catch the first light, but I soon realized that the stiff breeze would not allow for a good reflection.
Instead of going back to the cabin to sleep, I decided to look around and enjoy the moment. While walking along the beach, I noticed a puddle. The depression in the ground where the puddle formed was deep enough to shield the water from the breeze. The magic happened when I got down flat on my belly and the perfect reflection appeared.

Photo by @mathiassvold | In a worldwide first, the Whanganui River in New Zealand has been granted the legal rights of a person. It’s a monumental victory for the indigenous Maori people, who view the river as an ancestor. For tourists, the river is popular for canoeing and kayaking.

Photo by Matthieu Paley @paleyphoto // Sponsored by @GoTurkey // Istanbul is enriched by the energy of the Bosphorus, a strait that divides the city and connects the Black Sea to the Sea of Marmara. On the Asian side of Istanbul, I love to walk on the promenade opposite the Maiden's Tower at sunset and feel the pulse of the city. // Discover what makes Turkey so special. Follow #goturkey

Photo by @chrisburkard | The sea cliffs of the Faroe Islands are the tallest in Europe and some of the highest in the world. It’s almost as if they are guarding the islands from modern society, making this place feel ancient and virtually untouched. The islands rest almost exactly halfway between Iceland and Norway, a stone’s throw away from the Arctic Circle. On shore, the climate is too harsh to support agriculture, so the Faroese get by on a diet of mainly sheep and fish. Growing up on the central coast of California, I have never experienced anything close to what the Faroese people have, with access to all kinds of food and amenities on a daily occurrence. This is why traveling to such remote places can be extremely humbling and rewarding, to gain a better perspective on the endurance of the human spirit.

Photo by Matthew Borowick @mborowick | Two Icelandic horses, pictured here, are in their full winter furs. They are much thicker than their summer coats, as they must stand up to the harsh winters that Iceland typically has in store for them. To fight the intense winds and freezing temperatures, they tend to huddle together to fend off the coldest parts of the season.

Photo by @andrea_frazzetta | During the celebration days for the saint’s festival in Arzana, Sardinia, Franca Piras’ family prepares “culurgiones,” a traditional pasta of this area. Arzana is a village in the Gennargentu mountains of Sardinia, a region famous for being a Blue Zone, one of the six areas in the world with the highest percentage of centenarians in good health. 
This picture is part of the latest issue of National Geographic magazine, dedicated to the future of medicine. Working on this story, I’ve learned that longevity is not only linked to our genetic heritage but also to the quality of the environment in which we live, the food we eat, and, not least, to the social well-being that derives from being connected with our own community.

Photo by @mathiassvold | A blue ocean, white sand, a bright sun, and tropical palms. What is not to like about the Dominican Republic, the most visited destination in the Caribbean? The Dominican Republic has many postcard-like beaches. This is a view of Playa Limón.

Photo by @daisygilardini | Taking a ship is the best way to visit Scoresby Sund off the east coast of Greenland. This past September I had the great opportunity to board this amazing, three-masted schooner built in the Netherlands in 1924. 
The “old lady” has a mesmerizing charm unique to these kinds of ships. A schooner is defined as a vessel with two or more masts, with the foremast shorter than that of the mainmast. This schooner is also technically a tall ship, defined as a traditionally rigged sailing vessel.
