Travel theme: Details around the world

Some say you can’t see the forest for the trees- but sometimes we miss the wonderful little details around us when we’re focused on the Colosseums and Angkor Wats of the world.

Any travel destination offers much more than just the famous attractions, so why not focus your camera on the other things around you? You may discover a much richer experience!
