It’s going to be quite a while before I can share the DSLR photographs I took in Iceland with you, so for the meanwhile, here are some of my favourite Instagram shots taken during 5 days in this most magical of places. I cannot wait to return, and explore this treasure of a place even further… If you’d like to see more you can visit me @hellopoe on Instagram!

Afghanistan’s Wakhan Corridor

Afghanistan’s Kyrgyz nomads survive in one of the most remote, high-altitude, bewitching landscapes on Earth. It’s a heavenly life—and a living hell.

A book of Matthieu Paley’s photographs of the Kyrgyz, “Pamir: Forgotten on the Roof of the World” was published in October by La Martinière in French and Knesebeck in German. He is trying to get it printed in English, too.

Photographs from his two latest trips in 2012 are featured in the February 2013 issue of National Geographic magazine, accompanied by a story by Michael Finkel.

At night, after the exhausting games of canasta, we would look out over the immense sea, full of white-flecked and green reflections, the two of us leaning side by side on the railing, each of us far away, flying in his own aircraft to the stratospheric regions of our own dreams. There we understood that our vocation, our true vocation, was to move for eternity along the roads and seas of the world. Always curious, looking into everything that came before our eyes, sniffing out each corner but only ever faintly - not setting down roots in any land or staying long enough to see the substratum of things; the outer limits would suffice.

— Ernesto Che Guevara, The Motorcycle Diaries

Pictured: A man pumping water from the river, Ningxia province. (Photo: Zhang Kechun)

Chengdu-based photographer Zhang Kechun spent two years photographing from the banks of China’s Yellow River. Though the lunar tones and low horizons feel foreboding, Zhang insists the photos carry a message of hope. See the project on LightBox.

With all of these pictures of the Olympics floating around, it begs the question, what kind of shape are former Olympic cities in?

Todd Selby on the Louis Vuitton Express from Paris to Shanghai 

The Selby takes the train with Louis Vuitton from Paris to Shanghai. Both sets of photos are so romantic. I’ve always dreamed of riding a train through Russia. Someday.
