Each of these pictures is worth a thousand words ...
The beauty of travel lies in the fact of experiencing unique situations and observing in person, moments of particular relevance in terms of culture or nature.
Unfortunately, the commitments of our lives often make this impossible. But lucky for us, photography was invented.
Now, through the images captured by others (professional or amateur), we can enjoy panoramas and scenarios that would not be humanly possible to experience within our lifetime.
So here's a photo gallery for traveling .... while sitting on your couch!
