Travel Photo Tuesday

Hi There! And welcome to my “Travel Photo Tuesday” Series! Thank you for stopping by!

Travel Photo Tuesday is a place to share some awesome shots from Instagram that have been shared with the hashtag #maketimetoseetheworld. Each week I feature a great  photo + story combination and at the end of the month I share 10 of the best snaps under the hashtag from that month. Sounds like fun, right?

So let’s get started!

Have you ever scrolled through Instagram and thought, “man, I need to take that photo”? Well my Travel Photo Tuesday series is here to help! Each week I share an awesome photograph from a fellow travel blogger – and ask them to share  a little about the shot: where it was taken, why it was special and any hidden gems in the area that MakeTimeToSeeTheWorld readers should know about!

If you’d like to be featured on Travel Photo Tuesday, the instructions are at the bottom of the post. And if you want to get an idea of the photo’s I like – check out previous featured posts HERE

Granada Nicaragua Things To Do, Where To Stay & What To Eat

Luckily, this has well and truly changed and Nicaragua is becoming quite the Central American hotspot. Tourism in Nicaragua is evolving, but it feels sustainable and authentic. Just a short flight from the USA, Nicaragua should definitely be on your list to visit. You will likely arrive in the capital of Managua and should make your way straight to the beautiful and charming colonial city of Granada, less than an hour away. Granada is one of the oldest cities in the Americas and its cobblestone streets, colourful buildings and charming streets are a photographer’s dream.

Responsible Travel & How Your Trip Can Help Local Communities

As the travel and tourism industries continue to grow at an exponential rate, we have to be mindful of the impact we are having on the places and people we visit. ‘Responsible’ and ‘Sustainable’ have become buzzwords within the industry – for good reason – but their message is more important than any marketing trend or travel fad. Responsible travel is a relatively simple, yet powerful, concept in which travelers are aware of their potential impact on a destination and they look at ways they can reduce or alleviate any negative impact they may be having by traveling with an awareness of local people and cultures, the environment and animals.
