Our Top 10 Travel Photos
09 February 2018
We have whittled it down to our “Top 10 Travel Photos” to some of our favourite destinations around the world. Looking for some holiday inspiration? These photos are sure to make you want to rewrite your travel bucket list!
Perito Moreno Glacier (Patagonia)
Did you know that the Perito Moreno Glacier is the only glacier in the world that is still permanently moving? It can shift by up to 2 metres per day, resulting in a constant crashing of ice into the Argentino Lake below. Definitely, something that has to be seen and heard to be believed!
Camino de Santiago (Spain)
The Camino de Santiago is a large network of ancient pilgrim routes stretching across Europe and coming together at the tomb of St. James in Santiago de Compostela, in north-west Spain. Today, it has developed into a social, cultural and scenic experience, as well as a pilgrimage. The perfect endeavour if you want to keep fit while ticking new destinations off your bucket list!
Ha Long Bay (Vietnam)
Halong Bay is well known for its emerald green waters and thousands of towering limestone islands topped by rainforests. Boasting secluded islands and ancient caves, it is easy to see why this is a highlight for many who visit Vietnam. Take a sunset cruise for the ultimate travel bucket list experience!
Bran Castle (Romania)
The name “Transylvania” instantly evokes images of spooky castles, swarms of bats and bloodthirsty vampires. Take a trip to Bran Castle, the inspiration for Bram Stoker’s famous ‘Dracula’ novel, and see for yourself if Transylvania lives up to its dark past!
The Taj Mahal (India)
The Taj Mahal was built in 1560 by Shah Jahan in memory of his Queen, Mumtaz Mahal, to enshrine her mortal remains and to act as an enduring symbol of the love they shared. This architectural marvel is a visual masterpiece of white marble inlaid with semi-precious stones. It took 20,000 men 22 years to build this stunning mausoleum and it is often credited as being the most beautiful building in the world!
The Dead Sea (Jordan)
Although it goes by the name “The Dead Sea”, this incredible natural wonder is actually a salt lake. Occupying Earth’s lowest point on land, 430m below sea level, you can stay afloat in the water due to the natural buoyancy caused by the unusually high salt concentration in the water!
Think of the Algarve and the resorts of Albufeira and Vilamoura instantly spring to mind. For something different, why not discover a secluded gem, Sagres, a tranquil village which overlooks some of the Algarve’s most dramatic scenery. Once referred to as the “end of the world” in 15th century Europe, Sagres sits at the very south-western tip of Portugal.
Koh Sok National Park (Thailand)
Koh Sok National Park is a virgin rainforest surrounded by limestone mountain ranges and high cliffs, filled with waterfalls and caves and home to wildlife animals like elephants, leopard, serow, langurs, tigers and bear. A dream destination, that is definitely worth exploring.
The Tyrolean Alps (Austria)
Breath-taking views, wide alpine pastures, rolling grass hills and impressive waterfalls…a hike in the Tyrolean Alps, surrounding the mountain town of Kitzbuhel is guaranteed to make you feel like you’re in a scene from “The Sound of Music”.
Uda Walawe National Park (Sri Lanka)
Uda Walawe National Park is grasslands and bush forest, surrounded by impressive highlands. And did we mention it is one of the best places in the world to see wild elephants?
