These are some of my favorite photos of Palmyra, Syria.

Palmyra is an amazing ruined city in the middle of the desert in Syria.  Pretty much my entire recent holiday was organised so I could finally visit.  And it was worth it – beautiful, unique, and not at all crowded with tourists.  I am definitely going back!
