"Excuse me? Um, pardon? I don't mean to be a bother, but it's just that we've been together for three years, and it is our anniversary, so I thought maybe, if you had a second, might I be able to kiss you?

Interesting fact: French Kissing was actually given to America as a thank you gift from France after World War II. So now we have two kinds of kissing here- French and American. French is wet and sloppy, like a baguette dipped in a light raspberry jam and slathered with nutella, while in American a kiss is hard and fast, like a missile strike in the middle of the night.

As a lover of photography, I was happy to find out that voting for this year’s National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest was still open (thru July 20). Each image captures a once in a lifetime moment ranging from the most romantic kiss ever (see above) to a heartwarming image of an elephant protecting one of its own.
