There are so many stunning places on the earth that you need to visit at least once in your life, but where should you even start when there are so many of these? This is probably a question that I cannot properly answer for you, but I thought that I would take this opportunity to talk about some of the most unforgettable places that I have been lucky enough to visit, so read on to find out more.
This massive continent literally lies at the end of the earth and is starting to attract more tourists each year (Yes, Antarctica cruise prices exist!). It really isn’t hard to see why with some of the most amazing nature on the entire planet mixed with some great wildlife. Seeing icebergs in person is a very moving and powerful experience and you feel so small in comparison. Antarctica is an example of mother nature at her finest and in the most unlikely of places, which makes for the most amazing landscape that I have ever seen. What are you waiting for you better start searching for Antarctica cruise prices, because it is amazing there.
About 5 million people make the trek to see the amazing Grand Canyon each year. At about 1.6 kilometres deep and close to 450 kilometres long and 30km wide it is certainly one of the most amazing natural wonders on the planet. I love the extensive views across the canyon and the stunning natural formations that were cut out by the California river over 6 million years! The canyon is most popularly viewed from the South Rim, especially because it is open all year round, while the North Rim is accessible between May and October. This is a place that you absolutely must visit and you will surely never forget.
Yellowstone National Park
Interestingly enough Yellowstone is the world’s first national park. This is one of the single greatest national parks that I have been to in my entire life. The huge mix of mountains, forests, lakes, wildlife and even the hidden power of a volcano (think about mud pots, hot springs and geysers). Yellowstone is to me the most beautiful park in all of the United States, which is a saying a lot!
The Pyramids of Giza
The Pyramids of Giza have always fascinated me, ever since I was a child. The pyramids were intended as burial chambers for great pharaohs (kings) of ancient Egypt. They were constructed without the aid of modern technology, which is amazing considering that they would have needed a huge number of people to do it with the extremely heavy limestone blocks. This has lead many people to actually believe that they may have even been built by aliens! The Sphinx is also another great sight to see as it somehow watches over the pyramids and sits silently next to the pyramids.
