What Happy Travel Looks Like

We asked Nat Geo Your Shot photographers to show us the places that make them happy travelers among destinations near and far. Here are our favorite photos.

This summer Nat Geo Travel is celebrating happiness with our newest issue of Traveler magazine. What better way is there to share happy visions than with photography? We asked the Your Shot community to share photos of stunning landscapes, streaking light, and sunny moments—whatever makes them travel happy. Take a trip with us through our editors' favorite photos.
