Feel Good Travel Photography Competition Finalists: Russian Revolution

 

Happy Monday! To help with any beginning of the week, back to work blues, we recommend browsing the #feelgoodtravel finalists for Russian Revolution. We have already looked at the photographers fighting it out for a dream holiday to Peru, Jordan, China and Vietnam – today it is the turn of those who want to jet off to Russia.

Taken all over the world, from Bolivia to Indonesia, capturing dramatic landscapes and endearing animals, we are pretty confident these photos will inspire some wanderlust within you. Don’t forget you can vote for more than one photo if a couple really catch your eye – you just have to make sure your votes are cast before the 28th of February. Happy voting!

1. When I travelled to South Africa I felt happy

I try to explore the world at least once a year. Each country is unique in its own way. Love to spend time with the people and learn more about their habits and lifestyle.

2. When I travelled to Madagascar I felt touched to see the wildlife in their natural habitat

Madagascar was like no other country I have been to. The people didn't view us differently to how they would a family member. I was quite touched.

3. When I travelled to Indonesia I felt intrepid

Watching the sun rays coming through the palm trees in a Bali rice fields was magical. I was itching to get my feet muddy to wander through the rice terraces.

4. When I travelled to India I felt surrounded by beauty, history & culture

The Amber Fort in Jaipur is one of the most stunning marvels I saw on my short trip with OnTheGo through India. India to me was a true assault on the senses, its beauty matched only by the culture and hospitality of its people. As a chef, I do tend to judge a place somewhat by the food, and India certainly delivered.

South Africa feels like a second home to me.. being able to get up close and personal with some amazing wildlife is an incredible blessing.

6. When I travelled to Turkey I felt adventurous, free & overwhelmed

This was taken whilst in Cappadocia, where there are lots of 'Fairy Chimneys' which are residences carved into the mountain by monks.

7. When I travelled to Jordan I felt like I was on Mars - Wadi Rum in Jordan is just breathtaking

My travelling partner and I (my hubby) have always tried to keep our travel as varied and unique as possible! We've lived abroad in Zambia and Indonesia too. It's impossible to pick just one favourite holiday experience, but gorilla trekking in Uganda, sailing The Nile in a felucca and walking with lions and cheetahs in Livingstone are all up there! We love travelling with On The Go too :).

8. When I travelled to Indonesia I felt in awe

It's another worldy view over the Bromo national park to see the volcanic landscape. I would advice coming early if you want to set up your camera. dawn comes quick in this part of the world so you don't get too long to take your photos. It's well worth coming to this part of Java, I found it very interesting, and it was very beautiful.

9. When I travelled to Bolivia I felt peaceful

The Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia is one of the most awe-inspiring landscapes on the planet. Whilst being most famous for being the world's largest salt flat, the region is also home to stunning mountains and lakes with resident flamingos!
