Everyone who has travelled, if only a little, will have experienced the moment when a place completely sweeps you off your feet, takes your breath away, stops your heart and leaves you with your mouth open and your brain on hold for a few moments – because it’s simply magical.
The following locations triggered this reaction in me:
Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia
New Zealand, all of it
Luang Prabang, Laos
Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park + Watarrka, Australia
The temples around Siem Reap, Cambodia
Anywhere on the Annapurna Circuit, Nepal
Iguazu waterfalls, Argentina
The Grand Chapiteau of each Cirque du Soleil-show I’ve visited
The place where I grew up

You have to go to Iceland. You have to. It’s like New Zealand — everything is just amazing!
Thank you, Christine, I’m sure it is amazing indeed and Iceland is definitely on our travel list – just not at the very top (yet). However, Mr A bought a guidebook of Iceland a while back so it feels like we’re already halfway there 😉
What would you say is the best time of the year to go there?
Cape le Grande National Park, Western Australia. That blue of the water? AND kangaroos at the beach??? Absolutely fabulous!
AND how did I miss it when I was there?! Thank you for sharing another place to add to my list, Sarah! When I searched for photos for this post I got stuck (like one does) and found myself looking through the pictures I took during my travels in Australia… now I’m desperate to travel WA and the NT again. Only with more time and my own car/ camper for increased independence (last time I travelled by greyhound/ train which was exciting but I had to stick to timetables). I guess Australia should be on this list, too, and just like with NZL I wouldn’t be able to decide on a specific area. Too too amazing, all of it <3
Achensee with turquoise water surrounded by the Karwendelgebirge – especially in May/June when the landscape turns from “grey” to green
and Grand Canyon – absolutely amazing!
Another lovely suggestion, thank you, Lena! I have been hearing wonderful things of the Achensee area. However, so far I haven’t yet made it there. It’s too close to go there on holiday (we normally leave the country for that) but too far away for a long weekend. A clear case of first-world-problems, I’m afraid 😉
Since we haven’t made any actual plans for May/ June yet, maybe we could turn a long weekend into a whole week and explore this particular region?
