Swinging in the jungles of Madagascar. This is me celebrating watching lemurs in their natural habitat. I am very fortunate to have fulfilled this dream in 2017! And now I am sad watching and reading the news about the plague endemic in this island nation. || #madagascar #bucketlist #lemur #travelgram #travelgirl #passionpassport #explore #jungletrek #naturelover #damestravel

Toro de Osborne / Osborne Bull - In 1994 the EU banned motorway billboards advertising alcohol. In 1956 the Osborne sherry company put up large images of bulls near major highways in Spain to advertise their Brandy de Jerez. With the EU ban in 1994 these brandy bull signs were to be taken down, however due to public outcry they were allowed to remain, minus any branding. || #osbornebull #spain #advertising #travelgram #explore #passionpassport #travelgirl #torodeosborne #brandydejerez

Siena, a Tuscany hill town is known for medieval architecture and the Palio, a horse race held twice a year. The first image shows the flag of Siena’s Onda (wave) contrada (district) which won the Palio in August. The next images are from the Duomo (Siena Cathedral), and the last image is a partial view of Piazza del Campo where the Palio takes place. || #siena #italylover #unesco #tuscany #visititaly #explore #passionpassport #travelgram #travelgirl

Quite the sky over Assisi this afternoon. Birthplace of St. Francis who founded the Franciscan religious order. Assisi was hit by two earthquakes in 1997 yet the Basilica di San Francesco and the surrounding area are restored and open. || #assisi #italylover #umbriatourism #sunbeams #sunrays #sunshine #travelgram #explore #passionpassport

Gorgeous morning in Perugia, the capital city of Umbria and Perugia province. Perugia overlooks a gorgeous valley and is a university town, cultural center for central Italy, and is famous for chocolate. The Perugina factory is a few kms out of town and worth a visit (they provide great samples as part of the tour!). || #perugia #umbria #italylover #chocolatelover #travelgram #passionpassport #explore #travelgirl

Park of the Monsters, also called Sacro Bosco and Garden of Bomarzo is located in the valley below Orsini Castle. Along a walking path in the woods you will find 35 sculptures of various creatures and structures. When you step inside the mouth of the creature in this first image you see the tongue formed into a bench. Be careful - anything you whisper inside can be heard clearly outside! || #bomarzo #lazio #italylover #explore #passionpassport #travelgram #travelgirl

Marmore Falls, the tallest man-made waterfalls in the world. Created by the ancient Romans the falls are made of 3 sections. The entire falls are 165m (541ft) high, and the top section (seen in the 1st video) is the tallest at 83m (272ft). The source is from a portion of the river Velino, with the other portion of the river flowing into a hydroelectric power plant. #waterfalls #umbriatourism #italy #cascatadellemarmore #travelgram #dametraveler
