Travel is meant to open us up to new experiences. Sometimes those experiences are so extraordinary we feel lifted into a different planet, time, or even dimension.

Maybe it was the first time you went SCUBA diving or snorkeling in the magical world under the sea. Maybe it was the first time you stepped foot on another continent. Wherever your travel and imagination transports you, share one of those moments with us for this week’s #PPOtherworldly Instagram challenge!

I was standing near the castle, admiring its stunning silhouette, when a swift, heavy fog rolled in from the surrounding mountains and snow began falling from the sky. I felt like I had been thrown into some medieval, enchanted place. / #PPOtherworldly @passionpassport
