The most amazing thing about Yellowstone National Park is its variety of incredible features in a relatively small area. In one day, it’s possible to see bison grazing in the valley, a huge canyon with stunning waterfall, bubbling mud pits, rainbow lakes, geysers, and more.
Since being the location for many iconic scenes in movies, Monument Valley has long been a place I’ve wanted to see. Although the park was closed due to the pandemic, there are still amazing views to be seen from the road.
In July 2021, I was lucky enough to take a helicopter ride over the Grand Canyon. It was an incredible way to experience it, giving perspective that is impossible to see from a lookout on the rim. A place that made me involuntarily gasp “Wow!”
On the west coast of Ireland sit the famous Cliffs of Moher, otherwise known as the Cliffs of Insanity from the movie The Princess Bride. On this day, we were lucky enough to be there for a spectacular sunset, when the place was devoid of the usual throngs of tourists.
After we got married in Thailand, we had our honeymoon in Borneo. Among mountain climbing, temple-gazing, and snorkelling, we saw many amazing kinds of wildlife. Seeing orangutans in the wild was very special, but I also love the proboscis monkeys, with their humanoid noses and sitting postures.
