“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched – they must be felt with the heart.” Helen Keller. Nothing could be truer, especially when said of about travel. You have to visit a place to really feel it. No pictures, or videos can do it justice. But since we can’t physically transport you to the beauties of this world, these Smithsonian award-winning pictures will just have to do. And hopefully, inspire you to get out there and feel them live and in-person for yourself.

A trip to New York is a must. But aside from the shopping, the restaurants, the hustle and bustle lays a little tiny upright pool in the middle of Rockefeller center. As amazing as the skyscrapers are, it’s the art in the world that makes you wonder.
A Train Of Their Own
In the busy streets of Mumbai – the biggest suburban network anywhere in the world – the women are segregated to their very own train that carries them to and from work.
A Light In The Night
In the depths of Yellowstone park, it gets pitch black at night. Except when the fireflies synchronize, creating one of nature’s most illuminating natural phenomena.

A trip to Juneau, Alaska may not be your thing, but if you can brave the cold, you’ll get to see one of nature’s most majestic creations – the Mendenhall Glacier. As we all know, the ice caps are melting, and scenes like this won’t be here for long.
They’re Feline It
In a little villa in Rome, a cat overcomes all obstacles just to be with his true love.

Sex On The Beach
In South Florida, go during the turtles mating season and you will see the fruits of their labors inching their way towards the water to continue the cycle of life.
