150 Street Artists Decorate Old Tunisian Village with Spectacular Murals

The Tunisian island of Djerba (known as the “island of dreams”) just became a major street art hotspot, thanks to the project Djerbahood curated by artist Mehdi Ben Cheikh and the Galerie Itinerrance. This past summer, the village of Erriadh was transformed into an open-air art museum when 150 street artists from 30 different countries were invited to decorate the area with stunning works of graffiti.

Walls, windows, doors, gates, and other flat surfaces were covered with a huge variety of murals, many of which were inspired by the rich heritage of Erriadh, one of the oldest villages in Tunisia. From a colorful depiction of a turbaned man, to a palm tree playfully painted next to its live counterpart, to a wide expanse of wall embellished with a beautifully abstract motif, each work of art aims to draw attention to the traditional surroundings with the hopes of infusing Erriadh with new life.

To see the rest of the spectacular murals (over 150 of them!), check out Djerbahood’s website.

But Jellyfish Lake in Palau is filled with millions of jellyfish that have evolved in a way that makes it safe for humans to swim in the same waters.

Adventurous Photographer Treks to Remote Buddhist Village Before It Disappears

If you’re unfamiliar with Larung Gar, it may be because the small, remote town located in a far-flung corner of China has largely stayed out of the tourism spotlight. It is, however, a cultural and historical Tibetan treasure that has been undergoing tremendous changes in the past few decades, particularly in the midst of global controversy between Tibet and China.
