Would you have thought that Morocco has lush landscapes like this? 😍 the views here have been so diverse and full of contrasts - everything from the desert, snow caped mountains, forests, beaches and even stunning waterfalls like this one! This find here is called #OuzoudWaterfalls and is about 3 hours away from Marrakech, ideal for a day trip 😁💦 hope this helps you plan your trip if you happen to have Morocco on your bucket list 🤗

"If you’ve never visited China, or have never ventured outside one of the larger cities, I know exactly what you’re thinking... this exists near Beijing?!? I felt the same way. To go from a city with air quality of 155 (not always, but this past week it was between 140 - 160) to driving less than two hours to this, nature on steroids, blew my mind. But it just goes to show you that Mother Earth prevails, always." _ 📸 @jnasa _ Use #LiveTheAdventure for a feature!

One of my favorite moments each day is when the setting sun illuminates the skyline in the distance. It’s like the buildings are almost glowing, as if they were given a spotlight. Every day it makes me stop, look, and smile. . Here’s to hoping you have something each day that makes you stop and admire its beauty. . . . #chicago #skyline #chrismartinphotography

Something about a Hawaiian sunrise makes my soul soooo happy 🌞the island of Kauai is an absolute dream. I’ve enjoyed visiting the other islands but Kauai feels untouched, somehow.

The land of 1000 hills. I spent the past week traveling around Rwanda getting a chance to learn about their culture and of course their stunning nature. It was all so beautiful and inspiring. It’s definitely one of those places where I left wanting infinitely more. A week felt like 2 days. I’m so grateful to @visitrwanda_now and @beautifuldestinations for the experiences. I honestly can’t wait to get back out there, I found some insane hikes for next time 😬 #visitrwanda #bdteam

Broken beach is just a beautiful as it looks in photos! . This spot has an arched tunnel in the cliffs that allows the ocean to flow into a pool down below. It’s super choppy and there’s no way to get to the actual beach waiting for you below, which is probably for the best at this spot on the tourist trail. . Also PSA: Please be careful sitting or standing near the edge of cliffs when taking photos! There’s been too many stories of bloggers dying because of this. I saw way too many people jumping or standing on the edge to get the perfect photo. Just sit down like me and get a death grip on the grass next to you 🤣

🚨Hunting in Svalbard🚨 ⬇️⬇️⬇️ Two years ago I had the pleasant and challenging experience and opportunity to visit Svalbard❄️❄️❄️ Svalbard is a Norwegian archipelago in the Arctic Ocean. The archipelago features an Arctic climate, although with significantly higher temperatures than other areas at the same latitude. The flora take advantage of the long period of midnight sun to compensate for the polar night. Svalbard is a breeding ground for many seabirds, and also features polar bears, reindeer, the Arctic fox, and certain marine mammals. Seven national parks and twenty-three nature reserves cover two-thirds of the archipelago, protecting the largely untouched, yet fragile, natural environment. Approximately 60% of the archipelago is covered with glaciers, and the islands feature many mountains and fjords. I was not so lucky myself to witness a polar bear, but I will some day, when I return to this fantastic place for more. However, as the pictures show, I was so lucky to try and control several dog sleds and I also was so fortunate to be on my own in the undiscovered nature for longer periods of time🌫❄️🌨! The hunting here is not packed with action, no, it is a real and authentic hunting experience, where you have to understand the nature and wildlife if you want anything from it. The wildlife is as the word states: Wild. And this wildlife is wise enough not to become an easy prey or target! To sum up: This is hunting✅ Hunting as it should be: A hunt for something that won’t come easy! •••••• Follow @jagtherren for more🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙋🏻‍♂️ ••••••

Today is the- World Meteorological Day! Established by the World Meteorological Day on March 23, 1950, to commemorate the WMO Convention which led to its foundation. This year the theme is "the sun, the earth and the weather". On this note, let us look at the United States where in the aftermath of winter storms in January, several surface water bodies are at record high levels, particularly in the states of Nebraska, Iowa, South Dakota, and Wisconsin. Nebraska was one of the worst-affected states- in terms of inundations, damages to property and livelihoods, temporary displacements, amongst several other implications that will unfold in days to come.

There is something magical about the Sydney Opera House- magically created by visuals arts and performances within the Opera House and the magic of the form, structure and its spatial setting in the Bennelong Point, Sydney Harbor between Sydney Cove and Farm Cove, adjacent to the Sydney central business district and the Royal Botanic Gardens, and close by the Sydney Harbour Bridge. This multi-venue performing arts centre was designed by the Danish architect and 2003 Pritzker Prize winner Jørn Oberg Utzon in different stages between the 1950s to 1970s, replacing Fort Macquarie Tram Depot. Last night, the Opera House projected a Silver Fern in memory of lives lost in recent events in New Zealand.

One of the biggest myth around global refugee movement across space and time can be explored with the power of open data, big data (source: @unitednationshumanrights ) and visual interactive map.

This International Women's day, let us not forget that you and I (posting or reading this story) are blessed with luxuries of life. There are over 1.1 billion people (more than 3.3 times the population of United States of America) across the world who are forced to defecate in open- it is not a practice, it is a survival instinct! Fact #1- Open defecation is not a problem of the "developing" world alone. Fact #2- Over 400 million of this cohort is female. Fact #3- Nearly 70% of these women get assaulted, or sexually harassed on a daily basis on their route to relieve Fact #4- Hundreds of women, men, children (with no updated figure) have lost their limbs while crossing or relieving along railway lines, or other arteries of transportation Fact #5- Mere provision of a toilet facility with four walls does not ensure eradication of open defecation- there are women who are developing makeshift arrangements to not defecate in open while in a confined facility/space. Several are users by day and open defecators by night.

This International Women's Day, let's dispel myths around global refugee movement across space and time- with the power of open data, big data (source: @unitednationshumanrights ) and #visual #interactive #map Myth 1- Refugees usually seek resettlement in western countries Fact: A person fleeing their home country and residence with bare minimums in hand seeks only one thing- a refuge from conflict and tension, at nearest possible geography.

"Denial (Da-Nile) ain't just a river in Egypt" said Mark Twain. I wonder what he would say today looking at spatial manifestations of Denial on either side of Da-Nile (the Nile). Ezbet El Nakhl is a district in the northern region of Greater Cairo, east of the Nile, in Egypt. The district is called 'Nakhl' (Arabic term for farmland) as it was once full of palm trees. A significant population of the district lives in its densely populated slum or informal housing area inhabiting over 2 million persons (a population equivalent to Bucharest, Romania). What looks like a shanty, dense housing for millions serves as more than a space to sleep at night or live during the day. It’s a multipurpose space created by its residents for- waste recycling, animals, storage, in-place livelihood construction where part of the settlement that is housing people, also creates space for the way they make their livelihoods.

"What's so great about Switzerland? Well, the flag is a plus." Bad puns aside, Switzerland to anyone who has visited, lived or wishes to stay in the country, is truly a piece of heaven on earth. Beautiful high snow-clad mountains, green pastures, landscapes that change colours every season- are just some characteristics which guide our perspectives of diverse spaces in Switzerland. Furka Pass is one of the highest roads in Europe- and also regarded as one of the most dangerous and difficult roads, for its hairpin turns. Known for its scenic, panoramic views, the high mountain pass is closed off in winters. Stretching in the Swiss Alps at an elevation of 2,429 m, the road connects Swiss canton of Uri with Gletsch in Valais. If you'd like another perspective of the space, open Netflix and watch Goldfinger of the Bond Series.

There's more than one way to interpret diverse spatial perspectives on Earth- a photograph that is not an ortho or aerial image is one of the ways! Photo 1: Kanchenjunga (or, Khangchendzonga) snow-clad mountains, as viewed from Pelling- a small hill town in north-west Sikkim. Photo 2: Kanchenjunga (or, Khangchendzonga) in the setting of its context. One of the spatial perspectives to mountains in India relates to the string of economic activities and physical developments, and destructions associated with the natural beauty of a mountain. Numerous towns and cities of varied sizes, shapes and geographies are expanding amidst the mountains of India- to support and earn a livelihood from millions of tourists flowing in and out of India. Intra- and inter-state temporary migrations of people from surrounding smaller towns and villages has increased exponentially in past one decade. Men, women and children below 18 years, are migrating for a few months and weeks to earn for their household during peak tourist season. Imagine these wildlife, flora rich mountains once laid untouched, less photographed and awed at- because they were not easy to reach or were taken care of by villagers and forest dwellers in the ecosystem. But all this changed- particularly once British India saw the appeal of hills for timber, summer houses and beating the heat of northern plains.

"John Muir, the famous naturalist, wrote in his journal that you should never go to Alaska as a young man because you'll never be satisfied with any other place as long as you live. And there's a lot of truth to that" - Tom Bodett Anchorage is the largest city of Alaska- housing over 40 per cent of Alaska's total human population, and a true embodiment of nature connecting city and its citizens. Visiting Anchorage, you may encounter arts, culture and diversity of a great urban centre, and a few miles away from the city- you can meet and greet (from a distance) grizzly bears, moose, trails and majestic natural wilderness. It is one of the rarest cities in the world which plans its development with and inclusive of nature- for a sustainable urban future.

Australia is about as far away as you can get. I like that. The Wolfe Creek meteorite crater is the second largest crater in the world from which fragments of a meteorite have been collected. Carbon dating estimates that the meteorite crashed to Earth around 300,000 years ago, but the Crater was first discovered by Europeans in 1947 during an aerial survey. However, it has long been known to Aboriginal people (traditional custodians of the Wolfe Creek Crater National Park), who called it Kandimalal, and tell of two rainbow snakes who formed the nearby Sturt and Wolfe Creeks as they crossed the desert. The Crater is a key component of the Wolfe Creek Crater National Park- situated on the edge of the Great Sandy Desert in the Kimberley, Northwest Australia.

"The pyramids are perfect, but you can't put the pyramids in the middle of Manhattan. In the desert, the combination of light and form make it perfect"- said I.M. Pei, an American-Chinese architect, known for his notable works and buildings - the Louvre of Paris, John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum- to name a few. When we usually think about #thespatialperspective attached to 'Pyramid' - most of us think of the Pyramids of Giza or the Louvre of Paris (and to some, it lies in Vegas!) The Pyramids of Giza were constructed by pharaohs over 4500 years ago (2550 to 2490 B.C)- with the belief that they would become gods in the afterlife and erecting temples and massive pyramids preserving their tombs and other essentials they would need to rightly perform their duties in the afterlife. Lying west of the Nile river, on the outskirts of Cairo, Egypt- the Pyramids of Giza complex comprises of more than just one or three pyramids-clearly! The complex includes 3 Great Pyramids as well as subsidiary pyramids, the Great Sphinx and several other features, including a palace, solar boat pits. In a story by Brian Handwerk for the National Geographic (in February 2019), Handwreck writes that the three Great Pyramids were constructed by Pharaohs Khufu (tallest pyramid- one of the Seven Wonders of the World), Khafre (in the background), and Menkaure (front and smallest of the three). The Pyramid Fields from Giza to Dahshur in Egypt- is one of the 7 UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Egypt, and has been a host to some of the greatest contemporary movies like Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (with prior approvals of the government) Created by - @mahak.agrawal Imagery - @digitalglobe What's your take on #thespatialperspective of Pyramids?

La Tortuga island, also known as the Turtle Island is one of the 225 small islands of the Galápagos, which lies in the territory of Ecuador. The crescent-shaped island is a collapsed volcano lies southeast of the largest island of the Galápagos- which is the Isla Isabela (swipe left) or the Isabela island (featured as our first story on February 13, 2019). Home to rich biodiversity (particularly bird species), the island is completely protected, thus you cannot disembark. But, you can visit and view the island and take pictures of its magnificence. Galápagos islands or the archipelago of Columbus in the Pacific Ocean was made famous through the revolutionary works on natural selection, evolution by Charles Darwin. But not many know that Galápagos islands do not include just a couple of islands- rather, the archipelago comprises 13 large sized islands, 6 medium sized islands and 225 small islands, distributed around the equator. In fact, Galápagos is one of the only two archipelagos on Earth that have a land mass on both sides of the equator.

Valentines Day is over, yet love and beauty persists! It exists all around us- we need to simply have an eye for it. Ending the week with Unagi (or as Rachel/ @jennifer_aniston_the_official says- Salmon Skin Roll!) - Well, not really, #thespatialperspectives presents the salmon coloured roofs of row buildings in the Tanjong Pagar, Singapore. Tanjong Pagar, is one of the four historic districts of Chinatown- situated within the Central Business District of Singapore. The origin of Chinatown is linked to Sir Stamford Raffles. In 1822, he formed a Town Planning Committee to plan Singapore Town according to ethnic groups. The area south of the Singapore River was allocated by sectors to Chinese and Indian immigrants of the same provincial origin and language groups. The historic district of Tanjong Pagar emerged as an enclave in the 1820s, to thousands of migrants from southern China and southern India. Post-World War II, the district along with other precincts south of the Singapore River came to be known as the Greater Town (or Da Po, 大坡) of Singapore. On July 7, 1989, the area was officially given ‘conservation’ status for its architectural, historical and social significance. Over time, original clay tiles on the roof that got damaged have been replaced through restoration works, whilst retaining the profile, size, and colour of the tiles. Next time you @visit_singapore , add it to your bucket list! Don’t leave it to salmon else! (Pun intended) Created by- @mahak.agrawal Imagery- @digitalglobe

In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, I sit on my desk slogging away the 9 to 5 hours. On a day when we are surrounded by paper, plastic and what-not sized, coloured, materialistic hearts- we present you with a heart shaped space on Earth- the Makepeace Island. This heart shaped island is situated on the Noosa river on the Australia’s Sunshine Coast, Queensland. Originally known as the Pig Island, the island is now a private space and home to @richardbranson , and owned by @virginaustralia . The island was renamed as Makepeace Island after the housekeeper of the original owner- Charles Nicholas. Nicholas and his wife, left the island in the name of their long-time housekeeper Hannah Makepeace. After Hannah’s death in 1973, the island was owned by the state till Ben Spencer bought it in 1986, and renamed it to the Makepeace Island. The island was bought in 2003 by Brett Godfrey and Rob Sherrard before Sir Richard Branson bought Rob's half in 2007. The island is now available for exclusive use hire by the public and is famously known as ‘Sir Richard's Australian Home’. Love knows no bounds. Love has different perspectives and forms.

February 12 marks the birth centenary of Charles Robert Darwin. Hailed for his revolutionary ideas on evolution and natural selection, Darwin and his fellow travellers embarked a journey from dockyards on the River Thames to the Galápagos Islands. The famous journey on board the second voyage of the vessel of the Royal Navy - HMS Beagle, however made several other halts in between. Isabela Island is one of the Galápagos islands (an archipelago of volcanic islands distributed on either side of the equator and part of the Republic of Ecuador). On the west coast of the island is the picturesque Darwin Lake, which is located a few kilometres south of the famous Tagus Cove of the island and west of the Volcano Darwin. It is believed that in the 1800s sailors disembarking on the west coast of the island left names of ships on the walls of rocks. In 1950s, Walt Disney left a graffiti of Mickey Mouse whilst visiting the island. In remembrance of Darwin, we launch the project- The Spatial Perspectives, capturing diverse perspectives through spaces on Earth. In the coming week, we will be sharing other intriguing perspectives of spaces travelled by Darwin on HMS Beagle.
