🥇 Discover Summertime in Queenstown by @discoveringarni

Queenstown is an urban area built around Lake Wakatipu, also called Queenstown Bay. It is magnificently surrounded by the Southern Alps. We were on our one month family road trip in New Zealand and we have crossed this resort town twice. Once, on our way to Milford Sound and the second, as a stop over before heading towards Mount Cook. These two occasions took place within the same week, but we had two very different experiences.

🥈 The Clay Castle, Fairy Valley - Castelul de Lut, Valea Zânelor by @erikah

Today I'm going to show you a place that has never been pinned to @pinmapple before. It's called Castelul de Lut, Valea Zânelor and it is situated in a village called Porumbacu de Sus, Sibiu county, Romania. Porumbacu de Sus is a usual village with a few inns and pubs and with only 832 inhabitants. The village had nothing special to offer till one day, when a smart investor decided to create a place that attracts thousands of tourists a day now.

🥉 Gorges of Derbent and Kaptarkhona. Baysun adventures (part one), Uzbekistan by @damm-steemit

Baysun is a district in the Surkhandarya region, the southernmost region of Uzbekistan. It covers an area of approximately 3,700 square kilometers and these square kilometers are rich in incredible and amazing sights. There are mountains of stunning beauty, deep caves in which the Neanderthals once lived. On the slopes of Baysuntau (mountain range, southwestern spur of the Gissar ridge) dinosaurs roamed at one time, leaving their traces. There are also gravitational anomalies, picturesque gorges and canyons that can compete in beauty with the Grand Canyon, Martian views of the Kyzyl canyon and the aeolian city. In general, there is a lot of things here and I plan to visit these places more than once.

      woohoo, love waking up to a mention in this , makes my morning coffee so much better. Congrats to all, I will be browsing and voting and reblogging you lovely people. A lot of walkers in today :)
      many thanks @ItchyfeetDonica always appreciated

      You are most welcome. Yup lots of amazing posts today, and I feel bad that only 3 can be put into the top... Moalboal looks like a great base for you as a scubahead! I didn't manage to make it there due to the tight schedule when I was on Cebu... spent more time on Bohol and Panglao at last.

      The diving is better here but the infrastructure for tourism is better in Bohol, Moalboal is down and dirty diver town

      Wow, thank you so much @itchyfeetdonica and Pinmapple team, I really appreciate it and congratulations everyone!

      @itchyfeetdonica Thank you so much for the mention.😊 It sure puts a smile on my face, and has prompted me to check out all the amazing articles from the winners (congrats all and great job @discoveringarni) and all the mentions.😍

      Thank you and well done to you too! 😀 This lights up the gloomy weather we have been having the past few days. Perfect time to read the other posts.

      Absolutely! Oh, what a windy, rainy day!
      I think I might snuggle up with my pillow and listen to some soothing acoustic music.
