Hello everyone and welcome to the 51st edition of our popular Travel Photography Competition. This week we are reviewing photos published on our Facebook page between 3rd and 11th July.

As you probably already now Hitch-HikersHandbook are currently on the road so don’t forget to follow our progress on our 2 month hitch-hiking trip across northern Italy and the Balkan Peninsula, but you have come for photos, so let’s get on with it.

Our first winner this week shows the silhouettes of camels against the sands of the Sahara desert and was taken in Morroco.
