Collected by Courtney Jordan
Unnamed Rd Tanzania -5.735170, 39.291704, Nungwi, Zanzibar Island 25522, Tanzania
I just returned from several days relaxing on the beach in Zanzibar after a safari. What a completely unique island! You feel like you are in the Middle East, however you really are still in Africa! The colors of the water were amazing and I have...
Hanga Roa, Easter Island, Valparaiso Region, Chile
I think this is the most mysterious place I have ever been. It is just crazy that no one truly knows who built these or why. Having been to Peru, I could definitely see the Inca influence on the base under the Moai. But I have also been to...
Magallanes y la Antártica Chilena Region, Chile
During my stay in El Calafate, my hotel arranged a full-day tour to Torres del Paine for me. I was picked up by a tour operator at my front door, and escorted across the Chilean border into the beautiful national park. The tour and the views was a...
Krong Siem Reap, Cambodia
Crowds may swarm upon it daily from sunrise onwards, but exposure hasn’t dulled the impact of the largest religious monument in the world. Commissioned by King Suryavarman II in the 12th century as the centerpiece of the mighty Khmer empire,...
175 Cửa Đại, Cẩm Sơn, Hội An, Quảng Nam 560000, Vietnam
My friend and I stayed at a beautiful little inn on the river in Hoi An. Vietnam was originally not on our trip list but, since we were visiting Thailand and Cambodia, we threw it in. We were so glad that we did! Vietnam is such a beautiful...
Dioklecijanova ul. 1, 21000, Split, Croatia
The focal point of Split, this 1,700-year-old Roman palace is nestled on the Adriatic seafront and protected by UNESCO as a World Heritage site. Roman Emperor Diocletian built the palace as his seaside retirement home, and across the centuries...
Took this photo from a river cruise we were on for the day. There were so many animals to see. We were only a few feet from this guy!
33100 Tamiami Trail E, Ochopee, FL 34141, USA
This vast and wild protected area about 45 minutes southwest of the mansions of Naples is home to such rare species as the Florida panther and the ghost orchid (made famous in the book The Orchid Thief). The over 700,000 acres of swampland at Big...
Essaouira was my favorite place in Morocco. Being seaside, the town was so relaxed and friendly. The medina was smaller and so easy to navigate and I loved all the little cafes where you could sit and people watch for as long as you like....
Strahovské nádvoří 1/132, 118 00 Praha 1, Czechia
If you love books and history...the Strahov Monastery is the place for you. It was fascinating! I couldn't believe the collection that was amassed here. Very cool place to visit....and if you like beer (hey, you're in Prague, you must!) try the...
Barborská, 284 01 Kutná Hora, Czechia
We traveled out to Kutna Hora to mainly see The Bone Chuch (which is actuall in Sedlac, the next town over). We were told we would also see this Cathedral and didn't know what to expect. I literally could have been here ALL day taking pictures! It...
Inle Lake, Myanmar (Burma)
We took our boat for a day trip to Indein. It was about a 90 minute trip and we got to go through several man made locks (made with bamboo). They were fun to go through and quite amazing actaully. These pagodas were built in the 12th-13th...
Inle Lake, Myanmar (Burma)
Part of the Padaung tribe, these women get their "rings" early in life. We were told around 7-8 years old they receive their first rings and then they are added to as they age. It was fascinating to learn about this custom and I couldn't believe...
