🥇 Beauties of Azores: picturesque town of Furnas on Sao Miguel by @phortun

Located in the eastern part of the Sao Miguel Island, Furnas is also a civil parish that is only home to some 1,400 people so the town itself must have a population of literally just a few hundreds.However, what this miniature town lacks in size, it greatly makes up for in charm and very cozy and relaxed atmosphere. Situated in the beautiful Furnas Valley, the town is surrounded by some breathtaking landscapes that are mostly made up by majestic green hills covered with lush subtropical vegetation.

🥈 Beauty at my doorstep - Monsal Head, Bakewell, UK. by @article61

The sound of the water tumbling onto the rocks below coupled with the panoramic paradise that surrounds you is nature's theatre at it's finest and gifts a perfect symphony for the senses. To walk by without taking a moment should be considered a crime.The stream continues on and then hides itself around another corner, as if to purposely try and maintain a state of wonderment and curiosity, and with steep imposing hills either side of us we seemed to be lured further downstream.

🥉 CHINA - A unique mosque in the heart of Xian's Muslim Quarter by @digi-me

Most people probably associate the city of Xian primarily with the Terracota Army. However, if you are in Xian it's impossible to miss out on the Muslim Quarter. This city has served as a capital for 11 dynaties over a period of 4000 years and had it's peak during the Tang dynasty, when the position at the eastern end of the Silk Road transformed it into a bustling metropolis. It was also during the Tang dynasty Islam was introduced to China by merchants from Arabia. Many settled and married Han women. This has resulted in a rich muslim culture and atmosphere.
