Who does not love to travel! I have been smitten by travel ever since I was a child. I have been fortunate to have traversed to distant lands and across the seas but with every journey undertaken, I realize how little I have seen and how much more of the beauty still remains unexplored. It is very wisely said that anyone who has not traveled has just read one page of the life where as one who has traveled has read the entire book!
The five most interesting places on my wish list of travel are as follows:
1. Halong Bay, Vietnam
A UNESCO world heritage site it is a visual delight. The 2000 odd islets mostly cast in limestone are scattered around the deep blue seas which are a breathtaking sight. There are plenty of small hotels where one can stay in the small town that is 150 km away from Hanoi. A cruise around the isles is something I wish to experience.
2. Cappadocia Turkey
Cappadocia lies in the Antaliya region of Turkey which has a cluster of fairy chimney rock formations which appear like a fairyland especially when viewed from hot air balloon at the day break. The rock cut temples inside the caves are something that leaves one spellbound!
3. Machu Pichu-Peru
The trail of Incas situated in the cradle of mountains is about 50 km away from Cusco. The three primary structures created in the Incas style comprise the Sacred City. The place has breathtaking views besides a long trek through the jagged mountains. This too is a UNESCO heritage site
4. Alaska- USA
Alaska and the fjords and white fleeting icebergs floating in the cold sea have been a dream that I wait to be fulfilled one day. It would be extreme joy to undertake a cruise in the freezing sea and admire the barren raw beauty of the nature, as it unfolds on a sea voyage around the bay. Watching the polar bears in their habitat is something I await to see one day.The pristine whiteness of the snow and deep blue sea with a clear blue sky is something to die for!
5. Copacabana Beach, Brazil
Copacabana beach with the glazing white sands and skimpily clad Brazilian beauties is an experience that is also on the wish list. The beat of samba and swaying coconuts make the setting complete. I am sure Christ- The Redeemer would one day fulfil the wish to lie on this beach and count the sea waves as they beat the lovely coastline.
The list would be endless but the ones that are top on the list is what I shared with my readers. I hope the AirBnB would help in fulfilling one of my dreams soon by helping me book my travel, accomodation and local sight seeing!
