natgeotravel Photos by @hellokrisdavidson / This pandemic year has ushered in a time of stillness and introspection for many of us. I am reminded what a gift it is to be able to travel, and I look forward to that renewed sense of wonder once it is safe again. Until then, here are images from a meandering dusk wander through Istanbul, Turkey, a few years ago. This ancient city unfolds like a dreamscape and always reminds me of this Doctor Who quote summing up the spirit of travel: “There are worlds out there where the sky is burning, where the sea's asleep and the rivers dream. People made of smoke and cities made of song. Somewhere there's danger, somewhere there's injustice, somewhere else the tea's getting cold. Come on, Ace, we've got work to do.” #Istanbul#Turkey#tiltshiftlens

Due to the pandemic, the circulation of ships was much less and the canal looked quite lonely. This has surely been good for all the marine fauna that roam this part of the sea.

Every year thousands of tourists come here, attracted by the idea of learning how to dance or just practicing with locals. But since the beginning of the pandemic, many places had to stop doing business while others have tried to survive after some restrictions have been lifted. Classics like this one, El Chorrito Antillano, continue to operate within the norms of this new reality. #salsa#salsadancing#juancristobalcobo

Like when, after a long time, you find a slip of paper on which you once had scribbled down a dream on the first light of dawn. You read it in amazement, and you don’t recognize a thing, as if it were someone else’s dream.” —Wim Wenders, from the movie Tokyo-Ga
The first time I went to Tokyo I was on an assignment. I had always desired to go there. It was just like landing on another planet, and at the same time it was a bit like going home. Tokyo has become a door into a parallel universe for me; the discovery of a place I had only dreamed. I hope to return soon to explore the city.

If you happen to be in East Texas, you should definitely come to the lake either by yourself or with a guide. It is sure to amaze anyone who visits.

natgeotravel Photo by @babaktafreshi / As I was walking on this crystal clear autumn night in Arches National Park, the rocks were changing faces, silhouetted against an ocean of stars. It’s easy to become acquainted with the beauty, peace, and silence of a natural night. Although it reminds many of an eerie environment, night reveals a universe less appreciated due to light pollution and city life. Here constellation Orion rises from the east. Designated in 2019 by the International Dark Sky Association, Arches is now a Dark Sky Park, protecting its natural night environment vital to many spices.
