Sometimes travel hurls you into go-go-go mode, and sometimes it forces you to stop in your tracks. We’re looking for the latter in this week’s #PPLostInThought Instagram challenge!

We’ll be joined by guest judges @emmett_sparling, @jordhammond, and @kazimghafoor who can’t wait to see your entries. Head to their feeds for inspiration, and follow the steps below to share:


  1. Post or re-post photos/videos according to your interpretation of the theme between Tuesday, June 20th and 11:59am EST on Sunday, June 25th;*
  2. Tag @passionpassport and #PPLostInThought in your caption (if in the comments, we may miss it);
  3. Tell us a story with your caption: Where were you? What made you pause? What was going through your head in the moment?; and
  4. Check the sample below and get creative with your entries!

*NOTE: Entries must be posted or re-posted (i.e. you cannot simply ‘tag’ an older photo/video) from a public account during the challenge period. Those posted from private accounts and/or posted outside of the challenge period will NOT be considered eligible for feature.

We’ll announce the winner and honorable mentions Monday, June 26th on our Instagram feed based on the guest judges’ scoring of Quality of Image, Quality of Caption, and Creativity/Interpretation of the Theme.

The weather was miserable with rain lashing down and unrelenting gusts of wind. I decided to climb a big hill to get a vantage point of the coastline. After awhile of not seeing any other humans, I reached the summit. To my complete surprise, a lady in her 60s was at the top, enduring the horrendous weather, painting the rugged coastline. It turns out she’s an artist with an exhibition coming up, and she was seeking some inspiration. She was very kind and allowed me to take this photo. The dedication she showed to her craft was inspiring! @passionpassport #PPLostInThought
