Our winners today 🍍

🥇 How we became Caminantes at Gran Canaria (ESP) - Day 8 by @softa

"While exploring the map, we noticed that there is a deep caldera called Caldera de los Pinos de Gáldar not far from our path. Oncoming clouds spoiled our view. On the other hand, one raven noticed our presence and started discreetly begging for some food. For posing, he was given a piece of fatty salami, which we thought was the least harmful compared to the natural diet these birds eat."

🥈 A day off wandering in Pondicherry by @scubahead

"Every side street beckoned me to come and explore and see what it had to offer and I covered some serious mileage in the heat as I strolled up and down endless streets filled with shops selling just about all you could ever imagine. I had no real culture shock here though. Growing up in Leicester, which is 40% Indian, and living in the Philippines for 7 years I kinda felt right at home. Like I belonged."

🥉 A Day of Cycling in Lara, Turkey - Lara'da Bisikletli Bir Gün by @damla

"The path, starting from here, continues for about 17 km until the Düden Waterfalls. It's an easy route. So, for those who want to experience the city's beauty and be surrounded by nature without straying too far from the center, it's an ideal place. Even though I set off alone, I almost formed a group along the way as I kept encountering the same cyclists. We had some conversations during breaks."
