We always look forward to our mid-week tour of inspiring travel Instagrams, but with election day in full swing in the United States, we need an escape more than ever. Treat yourself to a break from feverishly refreshing election news pages and enjoy a quick digital jaunt around the planet.

America, all eyes are on you right now. Alex Strohl showed us the beauty of the country’s most northern state with a paddle to Alaska’s Portage Glacier. Farther south, Tiffany Nguyen showed off another lake, this time in Oregon. And far off the western coast, on the Hawaiian island of Maui, Cyrus Perry captured a perfect summer sunset over Makena State Park’s famous Big Beach.

Outside of the US, urban adventurers brought us a couple of unexpected views. BMX street rider Simone Barraco gave us an unconventional take on a very familiar sight in Paris, while subterranean explorer Robbie Shone offered a glimpse of a world most people never see: a surprisingly photogenic storm drain beneath the streets of Sheffield, England.

Other highlights this week include a balloon ride in Bagan, the stunning natural landscapes of Kazakhstan and Chile, and a sunset in India with two furry friends. Happy travels.
