Join us for this week’s #PPOpenSpaces Instagram challenge! Set off on a journey to discover the open spaces that surround you: do you escape the bustling city for the outskirts of town, or are you someone who seeks the green oasis in the middle of the city. Take us with you to that secret spot you enjoy most!

Whether it’s the fresh, endless skies or the rolling ocean in front of you, we encourage you to get outside and share the best open spaces you’ve come across on your adventures and travels.

Sample Entry:

Starry Night in Torre del Fiero, Spain

Camped in the vast solitude of Picos de Europa, night caught us unaware as we watched the sunset floating over a sea of cloads. Then, the heart of the galaxy emerged from behind the top of La Torre del Fierro. I inhaled deeply for a few seconds — the only thing you can do before such majesty. / #PPOpenSpaces @passionpassport
