Positano is a small town on Italy’s stunning Amalfi coast, just south of Naples. This part of the Italian coastline is marked by steep cliffs that seemingly plunge into the depths of the turquoise Mediterranean Sea so it truly is amazing how a town could ever have been built on these precarious slopes. Positano today is a charming town with cheery pastel-coloured houses stacked atop one another. The views of the town and the sea are simply breathtaking and these two spots sure provide some of the best views from above. Imagine a room with one of these views!

Boulders Beach is a small stretch of fine, white sand surrounded by boulders near Simon’s Town, a 30-minute drive from Cape Town. The beach, with its white sand and bright turquoise water, is absolutely stunning, but what makes this beach so unique is its colony of African penguins. These endangered penguins call the beach home and are a famous attraction in the area.

The Gooderham Building (or Flatiron Building) in Toronto is one of the city’s most loved icons. Many locals refer to it as the Grand Dame. This red-brick beauty was completed in 1892 and is located at the intersection of Front Street and Wellington Street, a short walk away from the famous St. Lawrence Market.

Ipanema beach is one of the world famous beaches in Rio de Janeiro. It’s certainly my favourite beach in the city – the soft sand, pounding surf, beautiful mountains and equally gorgeous people make for an unforgettable experience. I took this shot of some locals playing beach football just as the sun was setting behind the mountains.

The La Almudena Cathedral in Madrid (or if you prefer its full name: Santa María la Real de La Almudena) is situated directly opposite the Royal Palace. Strangely enough for a predominantly Catholic country, Madrid didn’t have a cathedral until La Almudena was completed in the 1990′s. The cathedral is a mix of neo-Gothic and neo-Romanesque styles. The interior, with its soaring columns and cavernous nave, is certainly impressive.
