Starry Night Above Lone Tree | Photograph by Jiawei L. (@jwglai)
.
“A starry night at Yolo County, California,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Jiawei L. “One of the most visited places I have ever been during my college life.”

“I can see why you often visited this location during college because it is just stunning! The star trails bring this landscape to life while also showcasing this lone tree silhouetted against the night sky. Lovely!” — @natgeoyourshot Associate Photo Editor Kristen McNicholas (@kemcnicholas). This photo was selected for the September 14, 2018 edition of our Photos of the Week series.

My mood of the day from Dagestan, Russia (small republic where I was born). This is Khunzhakh region. While driving there I was imagining how probably long time ago the famous Dagestani poet Rasul Gamzatov was running here as a kid. I used his poem for the video from Dagestan in the previous post. Will tell you more about him in the next posts. Here we also met an amazing family of our talented photographer friend: @shamilgadzhidadaev.
Настроение дня: Дагестан, Хунзахский район. Проезжая тут на машине невольно начинаешь представлять, как наверное когда-то очень давно тут бегал ребёнком Расул Гамзатов. Аул Цада, где он родился в семье Гамзата Цадасы находится в этом районе. Тут, кстати познакомились с замечательной семьёй нашего друга фотографа: @shamilgadzhidadaev.

Can we broaden our view...even within a country?
.
We continue our #overtourism series this week by sharing some ways travelers can help combat this problem while also having better travel experiences themselves.
.
Tip #3: Visit secondary cities and regions. .
We understand the draw of wanting to visit popular destinations, marquee cities, and iconic regions. As you plan and move about, consider the less well-known or “secondary” cities and regions in or near the destination you have in mind. These may offer you a similar experience — and sometimes even a more genuine and local one — compared to the marquee destination, but with fewer crowds and often at a lower cost.
.
For example, Tuscany and the Val D'Orcia typically steal much of the limelight in the region — and for good reason, we admit. (We were married there nearly 18 years ago.) However, consider the Tuscan sub-region of Maremma. The area is less well known on the tourist trail (we learned of it thanks to a blogger living in Florence), but it features some incredibly beautiful hill towns like Pitigliano (pictured here). .
So which secondary city or region in a popular country are you curious about or have considered, but you haven’t yet taken the leap? What's keeping you? Let’s talk it out.
.
Bonus: if we've been there, we'll offer some ideas and advice.
