Can't you just see this stage coach racing through the desert with cavalry or Apaches in pursuit? That's probably because you've seen Stagecoach, Fort Apache, Rio Grande, The Searchers or She Wore a Yellow Ribbon. That's right, this is John Wayne country where these famed westerns were filmed. Monument Valley, in Arizona/Utah, is also part of the Navajo tribal land and occupies 27,000 square miles. The beauty and enormity of the rocky pinnacles and spires is truly awe inspiring, and where, as John Wayne said, "the place where God put the West."…From the archives: June 2010….#guardiantravelsnaps #bbctravel #lonelyplanet #lonelyplanetamerica #johnwayne #monumentvalley #arizona #utah #navajo #stagecoach #thesearchers #wanderlust #explore #travelphotography #visitedplanet #iloveusa #worldtraveller #traveleverywhere #exploretheworld #traveltheworld #opentheworld #instatravel #fromwhereyoudratherbe #wonderful_places #beyourbucketlist #betheadventure #lonelyplanettraveller #natgeotravel #igtravel – from Instagram

Monks perform at a wedding ceremony of one of my former students in Thimpu, Bhutan. It is such a privilege to have visited this country and seen some of its unique culture, stunning landscapes, distinctive monasteries and dzongs, and popular sports like archery. Even more impressive is the fact it's South Asia's least corrupt country, emphasises gross national happiness over production rates, and has had a peaceful transition towards democracy. To top that off a little more you have to also consider the great bakeries, to-die-for kewa datsi (potato and cheese curry that is fantastic), great Swiss cheese, fabulous yak textiles, excellent hiking and adventure opportunities, and its open and friendly people… In all it's more than worth a visit….#guardiantravelsnaps #bbctravel #lonelyplanet #lonelyplanetbhutan #monks #buddhism #religion #festival #wanderlust #explore #travelphotography #visitedplanet #bhutan #worldtraveller #traveleverywhere #exploretheworld #traveltheworld #opentheworld #instatravel #fromwhereyoudratherbe #wonderful_places #beyourbucketlist #betheadventure #lonelyplanettraveller #natgeotravel #igtravel – from Instagram

A friendly local in Cappadoccia, Turkey. This region has become very popular with tourists in recent years thanks to the photogenic landscapes, underground cities, fresco-adorned churches, stone house facades, cave rooms and more of the region. Trekking and hot air ballooning are amongst the most popular activities. However one of the highlights for me was local hospitality and being heralded from across fields and villages to come in for cups of hot tea, the local beverage of choice….From the archives: Turkey, 2001….#guardiantravelsnaps #bbctravel #lonelyplanet #lonelyplanetaustralia #wanderlust #explore #travelphotography #visitedplanet #cappadoccia #turkey #lonelyplanetturkey #worldtraveller #traveleverywhere #exploretheworld #traveltheworld #opentheworld #instatravel #fromwhereyoudratherbe #wonderful_places #beyourbucketlist #betheadventure #lonelyplanettraveller #natgeotravel #igtravel #donkey #waving – from Instagram
