We all have our special, trusty spots we go that just seem to emanate an aura of tranquility as if by magic. Whether it’s the gentle sound of water meeting the shore or a rooftop breeze that best clears your mind, we want to see such havens and sanctuaries you’ve come across on your adventures and travels.

We’re joined by guest judges @liolaliola and @snowflakesfairy who are bringing their eyes and expertise, so head to their feeds and #calmversation for inspiration!

When you aim to escape from the never-ending activity, Parisian rooftops are a true respite. In a city that has already been photographed over and over, I always get caught by the calm suddenly surrounding me and by spectacular views through a trail of clink and chimneys. / @passionpassport #PPCalmversation
