As a community of explorers, we know there’s nothing quite like the smell of rubber against pavement or the sound of our radio blasting as suitcases rattle in the back. Any wheeled vehicle or mode of transportation is game: automobiles, skateboards, rickshaws…get creative and share your interpretation of this week’s theme.

We’re joined by guest judge @josephowen! Head to his captivating feed for inspiration, and follow the instructions below for a chance to be featured on our Instagram feed:


  1. Post as many photos/videos relating to the theme as you like between Tuesday, September 6th and 11:59pm EST on Saturday, September 10th;
  2. Mention @passionpassport and #PPWheelsOnTheRoad in your caption (if in the comments, we may miss it);
  3. Include a brief write-up (3-5 sentences) in your caption telling us how your entry relates to the theme and why it’s personally significant to you (again, if in the comments, we may miss it); and
  4. Stay tuned for the winner and honorable mentions to be announced Sunday, September 11th on our Instagram feed based on guest judge’s scoring of Quality of Image, Quality of Caption, and Creativity/Interpretation of the Theme.

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

Sample Entry:

Vintage Jeep in Snow in Cappadocia, Turkey

I woke up early to find the city covered by a white skirt. Due to the cold and early hour, I wandered the streets by myself until I happened upon this vintage Jeep…I stood in silence, breathless, captivated by the unexpected scene. / @passionpassport #PPWheelsOnTheRoad
