Feeling those mid-week blues? This week’s collection of inspiring travel imagery might make them better or might make them worse, but either way, there’s plenty of fodder for your wanderlust.
In Paris, two photographers show us unfamiliar angles of a supremely familiar city. The theme continues in Shenzhen, China, where an urban explorer snaps a shot of the city’s pleasingly symmetrical architecture.
For more romantic city views, we head to Abu Dhabi and Najac. In the former, the Shangri-La Hotel offers a desert oasis worthy of Princess Jasmine. In the latter, a medieval castle watches over one of the most beautiful villages in France.
Adventure awaits in Indonesia. Take a sunset horseback ride on the island of Sumba or descend deep into the bowels of the earth in Jomblong Cave, where a heavenly light illuminates from above and a dense ancient forest waits below.
Be on the lookout for bikinis if you’re skiing in Squaw Valley. No, that’s not a typo.
