Alicioustravels: The 10 most magical places I’ve been to

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, BoliviaSalar de Uyuni, Bolivia

New Zealand, all of itMilford Sound panorama

    1. 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?

    1. 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

  1. 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!

    1. 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?
