The hardest part of travelling for an explorer isn’t finding a place to visit, but deciding which places to visit. The world is a big place, and it would take an astronomical amount of money, along with endless time, to see it all. Of course, even if you can’t see it all, that doesn’t mean you can’t learn and experience a lot simply from the key highlights of this marvellous blue planet. If you’re not sure where to begin, but you simply know that you have to get out there and start travelling, then these four incredible places to explore might give you the inspiration you so desperately need to leave home and see the world.
Whilst it seems tempting for many people to begin by travelling to western countries, especially if you come from a western place yourself, a truly exciting travel is one which takes you a place entirely unlike your own. Jordan is a beautiful, scenic country which is rich in culture and history, and this might be the travelling experience you need in order to understand a different part of the world and learn something whilst standing mouth agape, awestruck at the environment which surrounds you. The Dead Sea is the best place to start, as it’s entirely unlike any other body of water on earth.
A popular tourist destination, but for good reason. A visit to Australia is different for everyone, as it’s a wildly diverse and huge landscape full of everything from sparse, barren deserts to bustling, lively cities. Depending on the type of travelling you’re doing, you could enjoy the culture of Sydney’s Opera House, the beautiful wine of Barossa Valley in South Australia or the beauty of nature in the form of The Great Barrier Reef; the largest living entity on our planet. If you run out of things to do, which would be remarkable given that I listed things from only the tip of the iceberg, then you could check out sites such as WhatsOn for hints as to what else you could see. Australia is the type of travelling experience which suits all types of people, as it can either be a cosy, cultured, relaxed experience or a strenuous excursion into the wild.
A few hundred miles off the South American coast, these islands are for the traveller who wants to soak up a few rays and relax whilst also admiring nature and beauty first discovered by Charles Darwin nearly two hundred years ago. There’s culture and history here, but, in all honesty, this is an experience for those who simply want to rest on a beach and admire some stunning views.
Rio De Janeiro
The heart of Brazil, in many senses, Rio De Janeiro is a city full of rich and beautiful culture. It’s a unique city both in its stunning location by the coast, its iconic Christ the Redeemer statue overlooking the huge concrete jungle below and its unique architecture. This city offers culture and individual design, but it also sits beside fantastic mountains and sprawling forests. There’s something for everyone here.
