Our winners today 🍍


🥇 Yaxchilán (Chiapas/Mexiko): Enchanted Temples in the Rainforest – Verwunschene Tempel im Regenwald by @mapetoke

"The ruins of Yaxchilán can only be reached by boat. Since the beginning of the 1990s, there has been a road to Frontera de Corozal on the Usumacinta. From there, the trip on the river takes about an hour. Before that, the ruins could only be reached by a small plane or after a river journey of more than 150 kilometres that lasted for days"

🥈 📷 Valparaiso — the City Where Graffiti Won by @sharker

"Well, let's open this magic door and find ourselves on the streets of Valparaiso. Let's walk a little and admire the graffiti in more detail, fortunately, we don't need to take a telescope, like this sailor's, for this. I cannot give the addresses of each graffiti and mural, and the authors are unknown to me (very often it is quite difficult to find out)."

🥉 Pandemic Road Trip: Florida to North Carolina: Exploring Ginnie Springs by @seangold

"I'm trying to sleep despite the noise, but then I hear rustling in the woods next to me. I'm locked in a hammock, we're on the river where gators live, and this thing sounds like a decent size. I quickly unzip, jump out and run for the flash light. I run back to look and expect to see a gator lurking, but after a few seconds I spot the creature, it was an armadillo wandering around. It's going to be a long night."
