🥇 A Visit to a Māori Thermal Village in Rotorua by @discoveringarni

The unique pungent scent of sulphur greeted us good morning. The smell of Rotorua reminded me of rotten eggs. I suddenly remembered a tour guide in the Kiwi Experience Bus Tour we boarded in 2007 calling the city *"rotten-rua" * Our noses eventually got used to it. This aroma comes from the volcanic activity in this incredible geothermal paradise.

[Iceland Summer #13] I visited to the place where seal and whale lives in Snæfells Peninsular, western region of Iceland by @rbaggo

I moved from the beautiful northern city, Akureiry to the Snæfels Peninsula in the west. I got to know a lot of great places on the way. Let me introduce you. The driver who lives in the U.S.A, has enjoyed a trip to Iceland and was training for a long time. I saw a female hitchhiker standing with her thumb up on one side of the road. He found her and said "Uh! Hitchhiker!" And right after he took her as me and then moved to the west.

🥉 BEST EVER ALPACA REVIEW SHOW not with Sonny - Best Alpaca eating journey Cusco Peru by @waybeyondpadthai

Alpaca everywhere! I was so surprised by the fact that they do eat alpaca in Peru. Mostly they serve tourists but some locals also love it and eat this type of meat occasionally in a fancier restaurant. In Cusco, especially, I can find alpaca on the menu almost everywhere among some other alpaca products like clothing.
