Last week, we asked you to show us what you’ve seen outside your window while traveling. Here’s what Matador Network readers, writers, and editors have woken up to lately.

Dolomites, Italy

Cusco, Peru

Matador Trips Editor Hal Amen spent a month in front of this view in Cusco, Peru. "My wife and I stayed in a hostel in San Blas while taking Spanish classes. The room was cold, the kitchen sucked, and the Internet never worked, but this is what I remember -- the view down terracotta roofs to the plaza and on up the 11,000' slopes surrounding the city."

Sarawak, Malaysian Borneo

Barcelona, Spain

"I stayed in a top floor apartment directly across from the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona.  This was taken from our tiny window standing just a couple feet away.  The Sagrada Familia completely fills the view." Photo: Tiffany Stahlbaum


County Mayo, Ireland

MatadorU faculty and Goods Editor Lola Akinmade took these photos from "the impressive 780+ year old Ashford Castle in County Mayo, and thankfully in the newer wing which has less paranormal activity." Photo: Lola Akinmade Åkerström

Cusco, Peru

Alex Hackett and his friends have been volunteering in Cusco, Peru, for the last 2.5 months at The Meeting Place, a cafe that gives 100% of its profits to 3 local organizations (an orphanage, farm/medical clinic, and a care center for developmentally challenged kids). He took this photo (and this killer time-lapse) from his window on Plaza San Blas. Photo: Alex Hackett


Utah, United States

Amares, Portugal

"My best friend and I traveled around northern Portugal and stayed at a few of the pousadas scattered around the region. This photo was taken out of our window at the Pousada Santa Maria de Bouro, outside of Amares. The inn was constructed from the ruins of a former 12th century Cistercian monastery."

Luang Prabang, Laos

Marissa Garza shared this photo of the view at the Thongbay Guesthouse in Luang Prabang, Laos: "Across the river, there is a Buddhist monastery that you could hear from time to time. It was the most amazing thing to wake up to and a view I will treasure forever." Photo: Marissa Garza

Mysore, India

This photo was taken in a village outside Mysore, India, where Scott Merk stopped for breakfast at the home of some friends on the way from Bangalore to Mysore. "After breakfast, I stood in the doorway and watched the kids walking past… As my traveling companions finished eating and joined me outside, we all played a spontaneous game of tag with the kids in the street."
