The theme is #PPOpenSpaces2 for this week’s Instagram challenge! We recently launched our Location Guide for U.S. National Parks and want to see the meadows, plains, and sprawling vistas from your travels across the globe.

We’ll be joined by guest judges @brandonexplores and @karimiliya, so check their feeds for inspiration, and follow the steps below to join in the fun:


  1. Post or re-post photos/videos according to your interpretation of the theme between Tuesday, November 7th and 11:59am EST on Sunday, November 12th*.
  2. Tag @passionpassport and #PPOpenSpaces2 in your caption (if in the comments, we may miss it).
  3. Tell us a story with your caption, including any interesting circumstances around the experience. Make us live in the moment with you.
  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, November 13th on our Instagram feed based on the guest judges’ scoring of Quality of ImageQuality of Caption, and Creativity/Interpretation of the Theme.

Studying the map before heading out, I foolishly thought, “Psssh, today’s hike is going to be easy; we’ll probably get to camp early.”

The lack of oxygen at high altitude paired with summer heat quickly and switchbacks kicked my presumptuous butt. When we arrived at camp, I was near tears. A good night’s sleep reset my spirits, and the next morning I pushed forward a bit wiser and a lot more humble. // @passionpassport #PPOpenSpaces2
