The Lost City of Machu Picchu

The #lost #city of #Machu #Picchu during #dawn, just before the first rays of sunshine reach the #ancient #ruins. It is truly mesmerizing climbing up the stairs through the ruins, exploring what it must have been hundreds of years ago and has a bit of an #Indiana #Jones feeling to it. Definitely a place you have to visit when you’re in #Peru!

The #sunrise over the #ancient #citadel of #Machu #Picchu in #Peru – One of the most impressing sites I’ve ever been to and definitely something you should have on your bucket list! Watching the sun rise and lighten up these ancient #ruins of an impressive and unfortunately lost #civilization is breathtaking and opens your eyes to the #wonders of this world out there.

San Francisco & Napa Valley

The #Golden #Gate #Bridge with the #skyline of #SanFrancisco after sunset – watching the lights of the cars crossing the bridge and the #city lighting up in the background is a breathtaking view! This city stole my heart and I can’t wait to visit it again.

The alley leading up to the #Castello di #Amorosa in #Napa #Valley – just an hour north of #SanFrancisco, CA. Napa Valley is known for it’s stunning #landscape, beautiful #wineries and #castles. Watching this scenery is a welcoming escape from the hustle & bustle of the big cities.

Crossing the #Golden #Gates – with the Golden Gate Bridge as one of #SanFrancisco’s most famous landmarks, you can see where the #bridge got its name from. During #sunset the gates are immersed in the #warm #light of the sun, an amazing view for everyone crossing the bridge!

My second favorite city

Some photos from my second favorite city – The #Painted #Ladies in #SanFrancisco, CA. Those restored and #beautiful #colored Victorian houses are one of the best well known landmarks of San Francisco – you might recall them from several movies or shows like “Full House”.

The #GoldenGate #Bridge in #SanFrancisco, CA at night – with the #city in the background. San Francisco is an amazing city and so beautiful to watch when the sun sets, especially when you get a chance to take a clear picture with one of its most famous landmarks – the Golden Gate Bridge! I took this shot from #Hawk #Hill, which offers amazing views of the #Bay Area, definitely a place from which you have to watch the sunset when you’re around!
