Beautiful Places Around the World

Learning to appreciate nature came naturally to me and it seems it comes naturally to almost anyone. But every day I am astounded to learn that there are still more places that I am not aware of and that are high on the list of the most beautiful places in the world.

Venice

Venice-Italy-1200x746

Venice is built on a group of 118 different small islands, it is connected by a series of channels of water. Buildings have been erected on these small islands turning the area into a city. It is an incredible journey to travel through the different waterways and see the structures and buildings that still exist after many years of water erosion.

Santorini

Santorini-Greece

Santorini is a well-known Greek island that was built after a volcano erupted there over 3000 years ago. The two main cities of the island are built on the cliff face of the volcano, known as the caldera and every house is white with blue trimmings and roofs. It is quite a sight to behold, especially at sunset when it seems the sea is endless.

Petra

Petra in Jordan is like a kingdom of red stone. High stone buildings tower over you as you walk around this sandy kingdom that has existed there for centuries. There is a lot to explore in this kingdom of stone among the red sand and rocks of the region.

Svalbard

Svalbard in Norway is the northern most point of the area which is still inhabited. There is not much daylight there in the winter and during the summer, it seems the sun never sets. Norway is made up of many different water ways called fjords and Svalbard is also on the water. In this area, you can catch sight of wild reindeer, polar bears and other rare animals that live freely.

Amazon River

The Amazon River in Brazil is the last remaining piece of nature that truly depicts the idea of a rain forest and the surrounding wild water ways and unusual creatures that live in the area. You can take a small wooden boat down the river with a guide and see birds, fauna, water animals and more that thrive in this wet and stunning area.

Victoria Falls

Victoria Falls is named after Queen Victoria of England. These powerful Falls were discovered in the early part of the 19th century and since then have become one of the seven wonders of the world. The water that gushes down these Falls, travels at a rate of 1088 cubic meter per second, it is hard to imagine the force and power of this measurement.

Antarctica

Antarctica is my last choice, just for the sheer clean beauty of this white wonderland and of course the thousands of penguins that live there.
