Most of us live our lives pretty fast. We grow, we learn, we work, then rest. This does not make too much sense if we ignore the wonders around the world we have yet to see.
The smog can get pretty thick in cities. That is why life changing scenery is not such a bad idea. Numerous places around the world are still raw in beauty and grace.
This article can help you by just naming a few. From the opposite side of the world to our backyards there is plenty for us to explore. Just take a look around.
When you think of Europe the ideas are endless. La Pedrera in Barcelona, Spain has beautiful architecture and vast history in every wall. Color almost come alive as walk the streets and neighborhoods.
The trip to Aberystwyth is another favorite to many. Plush green grass is home to few people but countless trees and creatures. The tall mountains capped with snow will leave you in awe.
We may show a little resistance when we think of Thailand because of many things we hear of Asia but far be it from true that it is not a good choice for travel. Maya Bay for instance, will raise eyebrows when you set your eyes on that crystal clear water, white sand, and aqua colors. Food is great here as well.
Yangshuo, Guangxi in China is sure to not sound familiar but has the most tranquil waters you will ever see. Many small dark green hills topped with light fog border the waters almost welcoming you as you stroll along in a bamboo float. The journey there will surely be worth it.
If you find yourself anywhere in South Africa this next destination might surprise you. Mauritius is an island approximately 2,000 kilometers southeast of the coast of Africa. It has astonishing blue waters, white sand, green trees on land and a breathtaking high mountain.
My personal favorite is Lake Como, Italy. The peaceful lake situation in north Italy is picturesque with beautiful mansion homes aligned at its borders spaced out between much greenery. It also has small towns covered in flowers in bloom with escalating shops and places to dine.
Oberhofen of the Canton of Bern in Switzerland is sure to resemble the pages of a fairy tale story. The town’s castle in particular sits on land but stretches out over it’s surrounding waters. Nothing short of perfect this small town steals our heart with charm and grace.
Skopelos is a small but gorgeous island off Greece’s main land. The deepest shade of blue waters leave you in amazement. Never disappointing, the town offers much culture and great food.
Last but not least, away from the city lights, you might consider staying near Eagle River or Talkeetna in Alaska. The northern lights or aurora borealis fills the sky with moving streams of green or purple. Which ever destination you choose, be sure to make it both meaningful and memorable.
