Our winners today 🍍
🥇 A place with two names,Quetzaltenango, Guatemala by @globallocal
It seams that the rainy season finally kicked in while I have arrived to Quetzaltenango - otherwise known as Xela. In fact nobody really calls this city its official long name. Old Mayans called the city Xelayu - so today's Xela is the modern version used both by locals and travelers. Who follows my journey might notice that I do take planning of my trip quite spontaneously. With the reliability of local transportation one is actually almost forced to do it that way. Buses depart from their stations only somehow accordingly to their timetable, so some level of flexibility is needed. Departing from lake Atitlan - we actually had to cross quite a mountain range first. It was almost scary experience seeing the driver honking every curve to alert vehicles coming the other way. He was definitely the craziest of them so far. A strong looking guy who was not taking any excuses to push the gas pedal hard. Adventure yet again - and I was just taking the public transport. Believe me it felt like a roller coaster on which you can actually die.
🥈 Tawar Lake, Switzerland by @aquagelas
Today's sunny weather makes me want to go out for a while for a leisurely walk while riding a motorbike to enjoy the beauty of nature around where I live, our relaxing trip on this sunny Wednesday is located on a road that surrounds Lake Lut Tawar which is in the City of Cold Takengon. At the beginning of our journey, we were immediately greeted with evidence that it had been seen bare due to forest fires in the past few days, lately the weather has been very hot and you could say that in the area where we live, it is the dry season, and this hill has become one of the roosters' food. red.
