Plaza de España is an absolute photographers’ heaven. There are so many different angles and framings you can find here, and I had so much fun getting creative with it! 💛 . In fact, being here totally reignited my spark for photography and content creation. I was feeling quite uninspired before coming here, and I’m really happy that this trip helped change that! ✨ .

Plaza de España has always been my favorite place in Seville 😍🇪🇸 It was built for the Ibero-American Exposition of 1929 and has beautiful canals which you can sail through, countless amounts of cute bridges, and 52 mosaic benches (some pictured here ). . These 52 frescos depict all 52 Spanish provinces, and the tiles here are typical of Andalusia - ‘azulejos’. If you love photography, you can spend more than half a day in this square capturing every angle and corner ✨ .

During our time in Seville, we stayed at the beautiful @_meliasevilla 💙 One of my favourite things about it is their amazing pool with this stunning view over Plaza de España! 😍✨ I loved being able to jump into the water and admire that view after boiling in the sun for 8 hours 😆 . The hotel is also just a 5 mins walk from Plaza de España, which was super convenient! ☺️ And I have so many photos to share from that square so stay tuned! 😉💙 .

My first time in Seville was 15 years ago. And I was so impressed with it (despite not remembering too much about that trip 🙈 ) that I knew I had to come back! Also because I missed tapas a bit too much 😋 . So here you go - welcome to my Seville series! 💃🏻 I might be mixing it up with photos of other places like usual, but for now here’s the impressive Casa de Pilatos - a beautiful civil palace in the city 🇪🇸 . Built in the 15th century, its architecture is a mix of Italian Renaissance and Spanish Mudéjar, and you can find magnificent patios, gardens and azulejo tiles here 😍 . I’m also ‘later-Storying’ my trip so check out my Stories for more behind the scenes moments 😃 .

Mechelen really stole a piece of my heart 💛 Not only did I have the best host and tour guide there - @veggiewayfarer 🙏🏼 I was also just happy to be away from the noise and chaos of bigger cities in general (I live in one so this was a great change 😀 ) . This charming Flemish town is only a 20 mins train ride from both Brussels and Antwerp - super convenient to get to. Only it’s a lot less crowded, filled with stunning architecture, scenic riverfronts (as you can see here 😉 ) and an inspiring history. . In fact, Mechelen went from being a city with a very high crime rate and bad reputation in the 1990s to ‘The Pearl of Flanders’ nowadays. Today this gorgeous city is very safe and one of the fastest growing in the country! 🇧🇪 Last year, it was also the only municipality in Belgium to volunteer to take in 250 refugees 🙏🏼 . So next time you’re in Belgium, don’t forget to stop by here: I can assure you you won’t be disappointed! 🙂😍 . 📍Haverwerf, Mechelen, Belgium . 📸: @veggiewayfarer + @thediaryofanomad 👗: made by @jjshouseofficial , lent to me by @veggiewayfarer 😘 . . . . #awesomepix #living_destinations #speechlessplaces #beautifuldestinations #thefairytalebloggers #travellingthroughtheworld #blondesandcookies #ladiesgoneglobal #visitbelgium #europe_vacations #lensbible #flanders #topeuropephoto #lpfanphoto #sheisnotlost #dametraveler #femmetravel #visiteurope #visitmechelen #borntotravel #travelbelgium #girlsdreamtravel #bestplacestogo #lonelyplanet #travelawesome #agameoftones #voyaged

Welcome to Villers Abbey! I got to see this mystical place during my trip to Belgium thanks to @charlies_wanderings & @veggiewayfarer ! The rain, lack of crowds and eerie serenity made this place even more fascinating 🌧✨ . The history of this place dates back to the 12th century, when Cistercian monks from the Abbey of Clairvaux were searching for a place to start a second Abbey. They decided on Villers-la-Ville, which is where the ruins of this Abbey are today. It is also going through a second restoration at the moment! . 🇧🇪 TRAVEL TIP: The best way to reach this place is by car. It’s less than an hour drive from Brussels. You can also take a train to Villers-la-Ville station, which is a 20 mins walk from here. . On a side note: I’m off to Sevilla tonight! 🇪🇸🤩 I had been there before but simply miss tapas a bit too much 🙈😋 If you have any suggestions for places to eat or drink there, I’d be super grateful! 🙏🏼😘 . Where’s your next trip? ✈️ . 📸: @charlies_wanderings + @thediaryofanomad #visitbelgium #europe_vacations #ig_europa #lovetheworld #living_destinations #youmustsee #sheisnotlost #travellingthroughtheworld #sidewalkerdaily #travelbelgium #speechlessplaces #lpfanphoto #lonelyplanet #tlpicks #wearetravelgirls #girlsdreamtravel #liveauthentic #todolistguide #voyaged #iamatraveler #wonderful_places #bestplacestogo #passionpassport #bbctravel #dametraveler #ourlonelyplanet

This was my second time in Brussels and I was happy I got to experience it without the crowds at 7 am! ☀️ A little history of this square: . The beautiful Grand Place pictured here was the commercial center of Europe back in the 13th & 14th centuries 💰 Many big markets selling meat, bread and cloth were all based here. . In the 15th century though, local authorities demolished the market structures, gave the square formal boundaries and constructed the magnificent City Hall pictured here ✨ . 🧳 Thank you @herschelsupply for my new favourite carry-on! I love that it comes with its own power bank inside so that I can charge my phone on the go 🤩📱 #HerschelPartner #WellTravelled #CommunityOfTravellers 📍Grand Place, Brussels, Belgium . . . . #travelbelgium #girlsdreamtravel #travellingthroughtheworld #blondesandcookies #living_destinations #girlswhotravel #speechlessplaces #darlingescapes #borntotravel #welovebrussels #visitbrussels #visitbelgium #europe_vacations #traveleurope #besteuropephotos #sheisnotlost #dametraveler #discover_europe_ #voyaged #europestyle_ #seemycity #map_of_europe #mytinyatlas #theimaged

Does this place remind you of Uzbekistan? Because when I was standing there, it surely felt like I was back in Samarkand 😀 . For those of you who started following me recently - I went to Uzbekistan last year, way before visiting Iran. And if you scroll down my feed for the Uzbekistan shots, you’ll find a lot of similarities between the architecture of these two countries. Why? . The answer is simple: Persian architecture was spread far beyond Iran. It dates all the way back to 5000 BC and you can find it all across the Silk Road - from Uzbekistan, Turkey and Iraq to India, China, and even Zanzibar! 🕌 Uzbekistan, for example, was under the rule of the Achaemenid Persian Empire for over 200 years. . So for those of you who’ve asked me which one you should go to, Uzbekistan or Iran - it’s too hard to choose and I’d definitely recommend both. Even though you’ll find similar architecture in both countries, they each have their own unique history, heritage, food and culture. And the people I’ve met in both countries are absolutely heartwarming 💛 . 📍Shah Mosque, Esfahan, Iran . . . . #fantastic_earth #sheisnotlost #voyaged #earthfocus #iamatraveler #earth #travelawesome #passionpassport #lonelyplanet #tlpicks #lpfanphoto #architectanddesign #wonderful_places #speechlessplaces #living_destinations #bbctravel #beautifuldestinations #visitiran #lovetheworld #earthpix #artofvisuals #blondesandcookies #bestplacestogo #girlsdreamtravel #travellingthroughtheworld #dametraveler

Well hello again my friends! 🤗💜 I took an impromptu social media break for the last two weeks, it’s something I always remind myself to do whenever things get a little mentally overwhelming! And I highly encourage you to do so as well if you ever feel burnt out by Instagram. . One thing I realized as a content creator is that this platform is perfect for extroverted people who feed off of others’ energies. I consider myself an extroverted introvert - I need people time, but I also need alone time to just mentally recharge. Realizing that was an important step for me, and now that I’m all “rested”, I can’t wait to catch up with all you lovely people again! ☺️ . How about you - do you consider yourself an extrovert or an introvert? . 📍Mechelen, Belgium . 📸: Thank you @veggiewayfarer for helping me take this photo and for being an amazing host, tour guide and friend! 😘 . . . . #iamtb #visitmechelen #darlingescapes #borntotravel #travelbelgium #girlsdreamtravel #travelgirlsgo #girlsborntotravel #living_destinations #speechlessplaces #thefairytalebloggers #travellingthroughtheworld #blondesandcookies #ladiesgoneglobal #visitbelgium #europe_vacations #traveleurope #flanders #topeuropephoto #sheisnotlost #dametraveler #femmetravel #visiteurope #girlsjustwanttotravel #girlaroundtheworld #globelletravels #thetravelwomen

Happy weekend friends! 🎉 It’s my birthday today so I’m going to be offline for a bit 😊 But I wanted to leave you with some PRACTICAL TIPS for traveling in Iran! 🇮🇷 Here they are: . ❋ First things first: It is the law for women to wear headscarves here - tourists included! You can simply use normal scarves for this 🧕🏻 . ❋ For women: wear lose clothes that don’t show your curves, and that cover your body completely 👖But you can get creative with it! Iranian women are very stylish 🙂 . ❋ Download the Snapp or Tap30 apps on your phone before you go - they are the Ubers of Iran - much cheaper than taxis and super easy to use! 🚕 . ❋ Get a VPN installed on your phone/laptop before you go. A lot of websites are blocked in Iran (including Facebook, Twitter and YouTube ) so you’d need a VPN to access them. I recommend StrongVPN or ExpressVPN 📱 . ❋ Foreign credit cards are not accepted in Iran (including Visa or MasterCard ), so you need to use cash. If you can’t exchange to Iranian rials before you leave, bring USD, EUR or GBP to make exchanging money easy in Iran 💵 . I hope these tips were helpful! Anything else you’d like to know about traveling in Iran? Let me know below!👇🏼 . 📍Nasir-ol-Molk Mosque, Shiraz, Iran . . . . #bevisuallyinspired #visualambassadors #lpfanphoto #agameoftones #lovetheworld #lonelyplanet #iranian #iranian_art #passionpassport #dametraveler #voyaged #visualmobs #bestplacestogo #speechlessplaces #bbctravel #sheisnotlost #girlsdreamtravel #tlpicks #artofvisuals #visualsoflife #lensbible #visitiran #travellingthroughtheworld #beautifuldestinations #living_destinations #iran_tourism

As many of you know, I recently got back from a short trip to Belgium! 🇧🇪 This was my second time in this beautiful country, and I got to see many places I missed out on the first time - starting with Gent! . Gent is probably my favourite city in Belgium thus far 😍 It’s both a university town and a cultural hub filled with medieval architecture and historical vibes. I personally love that it’s got this intimate small-town feel AND a lively & dynamic big-town vibe at the same time! ✨ . What’s even better was that I got to explore this city with two amazing ladies: @veggiewayfarer and @charlies_wanderings Meeting them after following each other for so long was definitely the highlight of my trip! 💛 . 🛶 TRAVEL TIP: This spot alongside the river is called Graslei and Korenlei. There are many restaurants in this area and when the weather is nice, you’ll see lots of people sitting by the waterside next to these beautiful buildings. It’s the perfect place to grab a drink and chill! ☺️ . 📍Graslei and Korenlei, Gent, Belgium . 📸: @veggiewayfarer & @thediaryofanomad #darlingescapes #borntotravel #travelbelgium #girlsdreamtravel #travellingthroughtheworld #blondesandcookies #bestvacations #ghentbelgium #visitghent #visitbelgium #europe_vacations #traveleurope #flanders #besteuropephotos #topeuropephoto #sheisnotlost #dametraveler #femmetravel #explorerbabes #journeysofgirls #girlsborntotravel #living_destinations #womentravel #girlswhotravel #speechlessplaces

On our second day in Yazd, Iran, we took a taxi and went 50 km outside the city. We arrived at Sar Yazd Castle in the early afternoon, and it was still quite empty. . Walking the narrow alleys of this giant sand castle was quite surreal. The structure is so complex that without a guide, you’d never be able to find all the hidden entrances and chambers. Luckily our driver was very kind and showed us around himself. True Iranian hospitality 🙏🏼 . 🏰 TRAVEL TIP: Make sure to climb to the top of the tallest tower here to get this beautiful view of the surrounding desert 😍 . What’s the last castle you visited?

Early mornings wandering the streets of Iran alone ✨ Strangers would strike up friendly conversations with me, sometimes they’d show me their favourite local places, and others would tell me more about their culture and beliefs. These were some of my most cherished travel moments 🙏🏼 . Jameh Mosque was rebuilt between 1324 and 1365 and is still in use today. Its minarets are the highest in Iran, measuring 52 meters in height and 6 meters in diameter! 🇮🇷 .

Confession: I’m currently planning a solo trip for next month to a place I’ve been wanting to visit for a while. But I’m nervous. . I’m typically attracted to places not many people want to go to, so there’s not that much travel information to be found online. Plus, travel warnings from government websites don’t put me at too much ease either. . But I know I can do this. I know I gotta do this. I know I’ll be okay. I just need to jumpstart myself and book that flight. And I’m writing this down here so that I keep myself accountable and won’t give in to fear 💪🏼✨ . Have you ever wanted to go somewhere, but felt scared about it? Why were you scared, and did you go in the end? . 📍Molla Bashi House, Esfahan, Iran . . . . #lovetheworld #living_destinations #youmustsee #sidewalkerdaily #visitiran #speechlessplaces #lpfanphoto #wonderful_places #bestplacestogo #passionpassport #lonelyplanet #tlpicks #wearetravelgirls #isfahan #girlsdreamtravel #liveauthentic #todolistguide #travelawesome #voyaged #iamatraveler #bbctravel #sheisnotlost #beautifuldestinations #travellingthroughtheworld #dametraveler #ourlonelyplanet

Yazd was one of my favourite cities in Iran. Its Old Town was like a mud-brick maze; a fascinating desert labyrinth. And amongst it, you’ll come across beautiful mosques such as this one 🕌 . Here are the top 5 places I really recommend you to see in Yazd, Iran: . ❋ Jameh Mosque ❋ Amir-Chaqmaq Complex ❋ Towers of Silence ❋ Sar Yazd Castle ❋ Rooftop cafes with beautiful views - Cafe Fooka & Art House Cafe . On a different note, I’m in Belgium now! 🇧🇪 Back in this country to explore it more in depth with the amazing @veggiewayfarer and @charlies_wanderings - tune in on my Stories for the next few days to see the beautiful cities here with me 🤗💛 .

Some hypnotizing patterns for your Tuesday 🤗✨ . I’m heading on an exciting trip tomorrow and can’t wait to show you the interesting places I’ll see, but in the meanwhile here’s one more throwback to Uzbekistan because I truly took too many photos here that I *still* have ones I haven’t posted - such as this one 🙈 . In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever taken as many photos during a trip as I did in Uzbekistan. Every corner of this country is something out of a photographer’s dream. This is only one of the many, many beautiful ceilings we saw 😍 . 📸 If you’re also into photography and want to explore this beautiful country, I am hosting a photography group trip to Uzbekistan this coming November 11-18! We’ll make new friends, I’ll share all my photography tips with you, and we’ll have a blast discovering Uzbekistan together 😊 If you’re interested in hearing more info about this trip, simply DM me! 💛 . 📍Registan, Samarkand, Uzbekistan . . . . #nikon #passionpassport #myexterior #forbestravelguide #bookingyeah #wonderful_places #bbctravel #lovetheworld #agameoftones #bestplacestogo #travelandleisure #thediscoverer #acolorstory #architectanddesign #guardiantravelsnaps #iamatraveler #travelawesome #voyaged #archdigest #hello_worldpics #beautifuldestinations #tlpicks #mylpguide #lpfanphoto #stayandwander #lonelyplanet #living_destinations #artofvisuals

I’ve been getting a lot of questions about how on earth I managed to “clear the crowds” of Rome in my photos 😆 The answer is always the same: I don’t “clear” them; I just wake up at 4:30 AM to take my photos when the crowds are still in bed 😄 . Behind each photo on my page is a ton of planning, thinking and plain hard work, and I’m sure many other content creators will tell you the exact same thing about their pages 🙂 I’ve had some people assume that my job is simply “taking selfies for a living”, and well... let’s just say I’ve never taken a single selfie for my page 😅 but my working hours are sometimes even longer than that of a 9-5 job, but I love what I do because I get to pursue my passion for photography - which has previously been just a hobby of mine for 12+ years 😍💛 . If you have any questions about content creation as a job, feel free to ask me below!👇🏼 I’m more than happy to clear any misunderstandings about my industry 😊 We should all be more kind and open-minded towards each other. If we don’t understand what someone does, asking is always a good start. There’s no need to judge people based on assumptions that are completely untrue ❤️ . 📍Castel Sant’Angelo, Rome, Italy .

5:00 AM wanderings in the most iconic place of my town 🇮🇹✨ I usually only visit this place when I take my tourist friends around Rome because the crowd here makes it almost impossible to walk around 🤣 But I’m definitely considering coming back more often in the mornings to admire it in peace! 🙏🏼💙 . Here are some interesting facts about the Trevi Fountain: . ❋ Pope Clement financed the building of this fountain with money he won from the lottery 😀 . ❋ It’s made from the same material as the Colosseum 🏟 . ❋ Roughly €3,000 is thrown into the fountain everyday. The legend is that a coin thrown into the fountain will ensure a return to Rome ✨ . ❋ All the coins are collected every night and given to an Italian charity called Caritas, who use the money for a supermarket program that gives groceries to those in need 💚 .

Happy Saturday friends! 💛 Thank you so much to those of you who gave me your input and opinions on yesterday’s post - there are lots of interesting thoughts and discussions on that thread and I’m currently working my way responding to each of you! 😊🙏🏼 I’m glad we can have deeper discussions like that because my goal has always been to provide more than just “pretty photos” for you guys 🙂 . Today I’m taking you to Santa Maria Maggiore - the largest church in Rome dedicated to the Virgin Mary ⛪️ Inside this massive church there’s amazing artwork, lots of gold leaf, little side chapels and cupolas. Every corner is a wonder, and its bell tower (pictured here ) is also the tallest in Rome at 75 meters! . 🇮🇹 TRAVEL TIP: This basilica is open everyday from 7 AM to 6:45 PM and it’s a 5-10 minute walk from the Termini train station. I totally recommend you to check it out because compared to the other sites in central Rome, it is not as crowded 🙂 . 📍Santa Maria Maggiore, Rome, Italy .

I will be honest with you (and maybe a bit controversial ). The Colosseum is a symbol of my hometown. An universal monument loved by people all over the world. It is an astonishing part of Roman history. But I’ve always had mixed feelings about it. . It is estimated that over 500,000 people and 1 million wild animals have lost their lives during the gladiator games hosted here. This happened while spectators cheered, laughed, and celebrated. . The gladiators were essentially slaves - marginalized people in Roman society without rights of citizenship. And watching them brutally die was a big form of entertainment for people back in the days. . While I acknowledge that this happened during a complete different era, it boggles my mind that the Colosseum is worshipped as one of the Seven Wonders of the World, while we would NEVER think of places like Auschwitz in that same way. . Yet when you think about it - aren’t both places reminders of just how cruel human beings can be to each other? Didn’t both places see a kind of atrocity one can’t even put into words? . Despite all that, we tend to forget about the “dark side” of the Colosseum, for reasons I’m not sure I know - perhaps because of its marvelous structure. . What are your thoughts on this? 🙂 I’d love to hear your opinion on why the Colosseum is so worshipped today, despite all the brutality that happened here. . 📍Colosseo, Roma, Italia .

Feeling small inside the majestic Shah Mosque in Esfahan ✨🕌✨ Can you spot me? 🤗 . A few days ago I shared some interesting facts about Iran and a lot of you seemed to have loved them. So here’s another thing I learned about this fascinating country: . Education is an important part of Persian culture and around 70% of science and engineering students in Iran are women 🧕🏻 For years, women in Iran have owned and managed businesses in industries such as oil, gas, construction and mining. And now - there’s a push to get them more involved in Iran’s blossoming startup scene! 👩🏻‍💻 .

Missing the beautiful Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque in Muscat today 🇴🇲 The architecture here is truly one of the most unique I’ve seen - and it’s a remarkable example of modern Islamic architecture 🕌 . Inside the mosque, you’ll find one of the largest chandeliers in the world and beautiful mosaic tiles.

How much do you know about Iran? 🇮🇷 I wanted to share some interesting facts about this beautiful country today - things that unfortunately aren’t shared all that much by the media: . ❋ Iran is one of the world’s oldest civilizations - with settlements dating back to 4,000 B.C 🐾 . ❋ Approximately 70% of Iran’s population is under the age of 30 🧕🏻 . ❋ Persian culture is famous for its beautiful poetry, carpets and gardens 🌿 . ❋ Poetry is an especially important part of Iranian culture and pretty much all Iranians can quote famous Persian poems by heart 📝 . ❋ Since 2008, Iran has conducted more sex change operations than any other country in the world, second only to Thailand. The government provides financial assistance if needed 💛 . ❋ That famous carpet you see in Sheikh Zayed Mosque, Abu Dhabi? It’s the largest hand-made carpet in the world and was produced by Iran in 2007 😍 . Did any of these facts surprise you? Would you like to learn more about this country? 👇🏼 Let me know what you want to know about traveling here and I’ll try my best to answer it ☺️ . 📍Sheikh Lotfollah Mosque, Esfahan, Iran . . . . #blondesandcookies #travelstoke #beautifuldestinations #visitiran #bestplacestogo #earthpix #letsgoeverywhere #passionpassport #lonelyplanet #tlpicks #discoverearth #sheisnotlost #girlsdreamtravel #earthfocus #iamatraveler #architects_need #wonderful_places #wearetravelgirls #travellingthroughtheworld #dametraveler #lovetheworld #speechlessplaces #voyaged #bbctravel #natgeotravel

Did you know that 90% of ancient Rome has not been excavated — and may never be? Many people assume that most of the ancient city has been excavated already, but according to experts, 90% of it is still buried 10 meters below the current street level. . Makes sense when you think about it — the area has been continuously populated for around 2,800 years. And much of ancient Rome may never be excavated as these sites are occupied by homes and businesses. Even in cities with less population (such as Pompeii ), excavations are often limited to 20% or 25% of the original site. . What’s the most ancient place you’ve visited? .

The beautiful Amir Chakhmaq Complex is a symbol of the city of Yazd, Iran 🇮🇷 It’s a mosque that also contains a caravanserai and a bathhouse. It’s also a great place to simply relax in as there are lots of benches and cafes around the square 🌿 . 🕌 TRAVEL TIP: I suggest visiting this place at night as well - this building lights up in the evenings and the arched alcoves here turn orange - it’s quite a gorgeous sight! 😍✨ .

How early do you have to wake up to find an empty Rome in the summer? ☀️ . When I was there visiting my family two weeks ago, I woke up at 4:30 AM every other day to shoot. I arrived at the Spanish Steps pictured here at around 5:30 AM, and there were already a bunch of people here 😅 as well as the carabinieri (Italian police ) - the latter were making sure people weren’t sitting on the steps, for some reason 🤷🏻‍♀️ . 🇮🇹 TIP: Many popular spots in Rome start to see tourists as early as 5:30 AM (especially the Trevi Fountain ) in the summer ☀️ so I’d recommend checking sunrise times and getting to each spot before the crack of dawn if you want to do some crowd-free photography ❄️ In the winter though, I remember this particular spot still being quite empty at 8 AM. The joys of traveling during low-season! . Do you prefer exploring during high season or low season? . 📍Piazza di Spagna, Roma, Italia .

#ad Which destinations are you planning to tick off next? 🌍 I have a little gift for your next trip: you can get 25€ off your next stay with @bookingcom ! 🏡 The amount will be converted to your local currency. Simply head to the link in my bio and book through there 💓 You can even save the reward and use it later! #LiveCurious I wanted to share a bit more about traveling in Iran 🇮🇷 because I get asked a lot about why I went there and whether or not it was safe. I can reassure you from my personal experience that I felt safer in Iran than I did in many big cities in Europe - something I wasn’t even surprised by, honestly. I was always skeptical of what the media feeds us - I knew it’s never the full picture. . I went to Iran with a friend, but wandered alone a lot in the morning to take pictures by myself. Never once did I feel threatened during my two weeks there. Instead, I was welcomed with incredible warmth and hospitality from Iranians ❤️ . There are also a lot of other tourists in Iran, and traveling there really didn’t feel any different from being in Barcelona or NYC (except for the fact that I felt much safer in Iran because there’s less risk of pickpocketing and other petty crimes there ). . There are some places on earth that are definitely not safe to travel to. But there are other places that are simply falsely perceived that way. Always do your research well, and don’t simply rely on what you hear from the media. If I did, I would have missed out on getting to know Uzbekistan and Iran - two of the safest, most friendly places I’ve ever visited 😍 . What’s next on your travel list? ✈️ . 📍Shah Mosque, Esfahan, Iran . . . . #earthpix #letsgoeverywhere #passionpassport #lonelyplanet #tlpicks #discoverearth #sheisnotlost #travellingthroughtheworld #dametraveler #lovetheworld #speechlessplaces #voyaged #bbctravel #natgeotravel #blondesandcookies #travelstoke #beautifuldestinations #visitiran #bestplacestogo #girlsdreamtravel #earthfocus #iamatraveler #architects_need #wonderful_places #wearetravelgirls

One of the strange things about being raised in Rome is that you sometimes literally forget that the city you’re living in is one of the most historically-rich and magnificent places on earth. I’ve strolled past countless ancient ruins here on the way to meet friends without even a turn of the head to acknowledge them, so today I’ll take some time to appreciate the incredible history behind this place. . The Pantheon is the best preserved Ancient Roman monument - the only structure of its age and size that has successfully survived the test of time and gravity. In fact, it’s a mystery how it stayed intact during barbarian raids, when all the other Roman monuments were shattered 🏛 . With that said, its exact age remains unknown, and legend says it was dedicated to Romulus, Rome’s mythological founder, after he ascended to heaven from this very spot 👼🏻 . It was turned into a church in 609 AD and today, it houses the tombs of many great figures such as painter Raphael and the first two kings of Italy 🇮🇹 . What’s one ancient monument you’re really fascinated by? . 📍Pantheon, Roma, Italia .
