What a wonderful world – 30 bird’s eye views that leave you speechless

It is a big world out there.

And yet, we usually are way too busy, too absorbed in our own problems and too focused on what’s happening in our teeny-tiny life bubble that we forget about this world.

We forget about the beauty and the wonders. About nature and pollution. About other people’s happiness and tragedies. About the big picture.

So today, I want to bring the big picture back into our little, comfortable world. I want to invite you on a photographic journey of marvelous beauty, ancient glory and modern mega cities, because the world is so much more than what we see through our own eyes.

Let yourselves be enchanted by the beauty of our planet and by what human beings have created over time. If these 30 photos aren’t blowing your mind – in either a positive or negative way – then what is?

No matter where you are on this planet, there is so much more to explore.

Open your eyes and your heart.

Embrace the beauty

and be critical about what feels wrong to you.

Open your mind.

I have been stumbling upon these bird’s eye views a couple of times already, and when a friend of mine emailed them to me yesterday, I knew I had to share them with you.

In the end, I want to thank all the amazing photographers who took these pictures and put them out into the world wide web. It is photos like these that make us dream, think and wonder.

And now it’s your turn: Share this article and spread the wonder! 🙂

Always happy travels!
