Photograph of Turquoise water at a beach in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands of India

On a good day, visibility on and around tropical islands can be several tens of kilometres. Coming from a city where such clarity can only be dreamt of, scenes like these in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands were certainly a sight for sore eyes.

Photograph of Melk Abbey in Austria

Driving from Vienna to Salzburg (Austria’s two most famous cities), the bright colours and imposing structure of Melk Abbey catches the eye. Located in the small town of Melk about an hour from Vienna, it was founded as a Benedictine abbey in 1089. The Baroque abbey seen in the photograph was built in the early 18th century. The abbey houses the remains of several members of Austria’s first ruling dynasty, the House of Babenberg.
