TEN AND ONE 2016 Competitions Recap: Breaking Boundaries

2016-12-12 15

As novelist Pico Iyer puts it, "We travel, initially, to lose ourselves, and we travel, next, to find ourselves." Exposing ourselves to unfamiliar sights and scenes can help us discover things about ourselves that would have otherwise remain hidden beneath our day-to-day existence. Traveling is always a welcome break from a monotonous, rhythmic routine. Allow these selected photographs from the Breaking Boundaries category be your first class ticket to amusing locations across the globe.
