My Top 5 Wow-Factor Destinations

follow site According to the dictionary, spectacular is an adjective that means ‘beautiful in a dramatic and eye-catching way’; synonyms of which are striking, picturesque, breathtaking, arresting, glorious, and my two favourites, sublime, and awesome. Awesome as in the Romantic poets’ meaning, not the Aussie-surfer meaning, by the way. These are the criterion by which I have judged the 5 most spectacular places that I have ever visited. Places that literally made me stop and say ‘wow I have written about most of these places before, so I will link to any posts I have written where you can find more photographs.

see The first view of the beach really did take my breath away.

pussy shaving girls I simply can’t think of any other time that a view has stopped me dead in my tracks the way that Parque Tayrona did. After a sweaty trek through humid jungle, we were afforded a tiny glimpse of the beach through the dense foliage and my imagination exploded; I was a cavewoman from thousands of years ago, I was a castaway stranded on a desert island, I was a movie-star on my own private island paradise…

Standing by Iguazu Falls feeling the spray on your face and hearing the thunderous roar of the water is indescribable. Arctic Circle compilations hd body cumshots , Sweden

I love the fact that there are no souvenir shops, and few people. And I love the fact that nature only puts on her most amazing performance for the few who venture there.

    Sep 28, 2014 Reply The place for me that has the biggest “wow” factor was Ko Samet – at least, the first time I visited the island in 2004. Probably because it was a lovely, sunny day and I was in need of a good beach after spending time in Pattaya. The white sand on Ko Samet was a treat for the eyes and I had such a good time on that day trip. I returned to Ko Samet the following two times I visited Thailand.

    real prostitute porn video I have not yet been to Koh Samet, but I’m going to Thailand for Christmas so maybe I should check it out. Any recommendations for accommodation, restaurants etc…?

      Sep 28, 2014 Reply Unfortunately, I don’t have any specific recommendations for accommodation or restaurants per se as I haven’t been there in four years. However, I would recommend Hat Sai Kaew – it’s the portion of the island I stayed on. I do remember multiple options for accommodation existing there. And there were numerous (at least more than one) bars that were playing good dance music not far from where I was staying.

    source Isle of Iona, Scotland.

    hardcore anal canal to share There’s definitely something about being on an actual island that changes things. The atmosphere on Iona palpably changes when the last ferry goes.

    enter That first photo definitely made me say, “Wow!”

    I’m impressed by every new place I visit, though I’ll never forget the awestruck feeling when I visited Times Square in NYC for the first time. It seemed like the energy of the world was flowing from that very spot!

      I really enjoyed Times Square too. In fact I was pretty awestruck the whole time I was in NYC. I felt like I was walking around a giant film-set.

      I am so jealous. Iceland is a place to which I am simply desperate to return.

      If I can offer you one piece of advice it would be to hire a car while you are there. I made the mistake of using the tour buses and have regretted it ever since. They are convenient and they ‘do the job’ so to speak, but you will have a much better time doing it at your own speed. I only spent an hour at Jökulsárlón, but could have spent a week there. I would love to hang out there long enough to see the Aurora over the lagoon.

      I hope you have a wonderful time.
