#HeartTravel photo competition: A few of our favourites


Earlier this week, we launched our #HeartTravel photo competition on Instagram in time with Valentine’s Day, asking you to share your favourite travel place with us.

We were overwhelmed with the range of breathtaking photos and heartfelt reasons why certain places had a hold of your heart. From stunning scenery, rare wildlife encounters, meaningful exchanges with locals and places that were special for personal moments, the responses were truly inspiring.

So, we thought we would share just a few…

About the author

Kelly Griffin - In a past life, Kelly Griffin was a Melbourne journalist, but escaped the big island to go and conquer a small island - working as a travel writer in London. After travelling to over 20 countries, she's now back in sunny (but often cold) Melbourne... but would give it all up to head to the Galapagos Islands and live like Tom Hanks in Castaway, snorkelling endlessly with turtles and seals.
