Every month, we curate the best blog posts and Instagrams from our Lonely Planet Pathfinders.

This month’s feature is from Armando and Mel of Westfalia Digital Nomads blog. Shot on the island of Sicily, their two minute video showcases the beautiful sights, sweeping coastline views and charming local traditions the city of Ragusa enjoys.

Visit Ragusa, Sicily – Westfalia Digital Nomads and ConsumelessMed

‘Ragusa was classified as a Unesco World Heritage Site and is one of the most important cities for art in Italy due to its varied artistic and archaeological riches. We created this video in collaboration with ConsumelessMed in order to promote sustainable tourism in coastal areas of the Mediterranean.’

Well done to Armando and Mel for successfully capturing the essence of Ragusa, by combining stunning drone footage with excerpts from the locals which bring the video to life.

There was also a great video submitted by Victoria Stanley Tsui who gives us a sneak peek of her recent adventure into the Bolivian rainforest. Check out her video here.
