10 photos to whet your appetite for travel

Every vacation that we embark on is an opportunity to live the extraordinary. This is a collection of photos of some of the world’s greatest cities taken by people who were doing precisely that.

Whether it’s the head of an ant as seen through the lens of a National Geographic photographer, or the epic skyscape of modern metropolis, let yourself be inspired by the beauty that we take for granted on our travels. Time to wipe off the dust on the Nikon and start planning your shutterbug adventure.
