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

What Made it Great:
This image is from a drive we took while I was visiting family in Tignes in the French Alps. Tignes is a popular Ski destination, not somewhere a lot of people would think to visit in July! But when the snow melts this is what is underneath! My little sister has been living up in the French Alps for a few years now. We are chalk and cheese on a lot of things: She likes to Ski and be up in the mountains and is fine with the cold. I prefer the surf and love swimming in the sea, I hate the cold. So visiting her at winter was never going to happen. I finally went over in summer 2016 and I just couldn’t believe my eyes! Everywhere I looks was so beautiful. I hiked the mountains and wandered round the villages nestled in the valleys. There were a few times when we were driving around when I would shout to stop and this was one of them. I hopped out of the car and took this shot. I wrote a whole post about visiting Tignes (where she lives) during the summer months. I was really surprised at just how much there is to do there! If you love outdoor activities it has you covered! There are incredible Hikes, you can even get the ski lift up and then walk down. Kayaking, tennis, mountain biking, Stand Up Paddle boarding…I could go on and one. Its also a great base to visit other places, you are right by the Italian boarder so we popped over to Italy one day for Pizza and Gillette! If you ever visit and are flying in from Geneva airport make sure you stop at Annecy on the way there or back, its a beautiful little town and has a huge lake that you can take a walk by or even better rent a pedalo! I don’t think I will ever settle in the mountains like my sister but it made me appreciate this incredible place and realise that there is so much more to the alps than skiing! So this year I’m planning on climbing a few more mountains and taking in a few more views like this!
