13 amazing photos show why travel is the best investment

If there is one thing that feeds - and satisfies - our soul, it is packing and falling into the world. Whether you are staying in a luxury hotel in the Swiss Alps or a small guesthouse in the corners of Bolivia, the key is to enjoy the chance to experience memorable moments that could not be experienced in the place where we live.

Aware that travel is the best investment we can make for ourselves, photographer Pascal Mannaerts has traveled the world for the past 10 years with a camera in hand and an absurd desire to record the places he passed. Through his lens, he captured not only landscapes that would yield great wallpapers, but also the cultural manifestations that make humans such extraordinary beings. Board with us for the images he made:
