Exploring the Elements

I was invited by four amazing travel bloggers (Suzanne from The Travelbunny, Le and David from Wise Monkeys Abroad, Shikha from Why Waste Annual Leave and Nita from Spilling the beans) to take part on the travel photoblogging challenge proposed by Thomas Cook.

The challenge is all about the four elements, water, fire, earth and air. Each blogger should present these four elements in photos and spread the word by inviting other 5 bloggers to take part. Interesting challenge isn’t it? It will be hard to win the prize of £5,000, but the try is not only worth it, but also fun!


When I think of Earth, I remember the time I was in the Ecuador, at the Galapagos Islands, when I was walking through a volcano at Isabela Island. It was still possible to smell the strong scent of sulphur from its last eruption (3 years before) such a unique experience.

 Sun, my first thought. Sun setting. Sunset. Incredible nature, it never ceases to impress me.

 Underwater. Water flow. Fish going with the flow, as a group. Vibrant energy. Underwater life.




 My beloved underwater World. How privileged we humans are to be able to breath underneath you. Oxygen bubbles.
