Natural Wonders Bucket List

We have put together a natural wonders bucket list that will give you all those wanderlust feels. There are so many beautiful places to choose from and we hope we get the chance to visit each and every one of them. There are so many wonderful sights from crystal caves to magnificent waterfalls, lakes and mud volcanoes that have made rock formations that look like a work of art.

Mud Volcanoes, Gobustan, Azerbaijan
The mud volcanoes are Just 65 kilometres south of Azerbaijan’s capital Baku, we have heard the mud volcanoes of Gobustan have a strangely Martian landscape appearance. Small volcanoes that still throw out some mud, which is thought to have medicinal qualities apparently you will see people stripping down and smothering themselves with it.

Pembrokeshire Coastal Path National Trail, Wales, UK
Situated in southwest Wales, this path twists for 300 kilometres from St. Dogmaels to Amroth. The weather is not always good (as expected), but rumour has it on a sunny day, it is one of the most beautiful places you will find on your travels. You can join the trail in different locations, and if you are lucky you might even see seals in the waters below. There are also guided walks if you prefer to be with someone who knows the trail well.

Great Barrier Reef, Australia
The Great Barrier Reef in Australia has some of the most stunning views trust us! The sea life and coral is just stunning and something everyone has to see once in their life. Some of the Great Barrier Reef tours from Cairns offer glass-bottomed boats, which will let you see even more. They also give you the chance for snorkelling and diving as part of your trip which I (Rach) did when I travelled Australia and it was INCREDIBLE!

Verdon Gorge, Provence, France
Verdon Gorge is known for being one of Europe’s most beautiful gorges. We really want to swim in the clear blue waters of the Verdon River that flows through for 25 kilometres. It is also meant to be a popular destination for rock climbers if that takes your fancy.

Ayers Rock, Australia

This is probably ones of Australia best-known landmarks.  To the aboriginal Anangu custodians, it is a sacred place and climbing it is considered to be disrespectful to them. It is also dangerous but viewed from as close as you are safe to go, it is a truly amazing sight.

Angel Falls, Venezuela
This waterfall cascades from the largest tabletop mountain in Venezuela and is the highest waterfall in the world. It is located in a remote jungle, which you can only reach by plane. The local people work as guides so that you can see how most of the water evaporates on its way down and never reaches the bottom.

Cascate del Mulino, Saturnia, Tuscany, Italy
The waters that come from the natural springs have a temperature of about 37.5 C, and they run down as a series of small waterfalls to different levels. It is said that a 10 minutes soak in these mineral waters will help to relieve the discomfort of many ailments, including muscle and joint aches and pains!

Iguazu falls, Argentina
Located in Argentina, these falls are simply stunning that they have to be on our bucket list. Just look up images and you’ll want to head there tomorrow. These are the largest waterfalls in the world so are pretty impressive.

Moraine Lake, Banff National Park, Alberta, Canada
With the bluest waters ever seen you must add Moraine Lake to your bucket list. Trust us you will want to sit and stare at this lake for hours. You can also hire a canoe and really impress your friends with incredible pictures. Whilst you’re here find some time to visit Lake Louise and walk to Big Beehive for incredible views. There is so much to see in Banff National Park, just keep a look out for bears!

These are just a few of the places that you should consider including on your natural wonders bucket list. Every country in the world has amazing sights somewhere in them; it is just a case of finding the ones you want to see!

City Life Down Under…Brisbane

Sydney and Perth are main cities that people want to visit when heading down under. However we cannot forget about wonderful Brisbane.

Brisbane is know as a city that provides so many different things for so many people. The modern Australian city has a variety of food, entertainment, nightlife, and much more! Here is what Brisbane has to offer…

FOOD
There is so much in the way of food, from the traditional Australian cuisines, which consists of lots of fish, and also lots of sophisticated styles that have a fast food twist. KFD, yes, actually stands for Kentucky Fried Duck sounds so good and we would love to try it we have heard it is delicious. On the other hand, there are restaurants that have a sophisticated air about them, Il Centro provides lots of fish, but, as the name suggests, modern Italian food is the order of service. Il Centro has all of the details if you wanted to book a table there. There are places where you can get your pizzas and pastas, but also delicacies, such as coconut lobster curry from the Longtime restaurant.

WATER TOURS
If you want to see Brisbane by sea, you’ve got so many different options. the Brisbane River High Tea Cruise lets you indulge in sweet treats while you are being whisked down the Brisbane river on a paddle wheeler. Or if you looking for something a bit more you can take the 4 hour Brisbane River cruise, where you can hire your own private vessel, and even have a party. The https://eventcruises.com.au website gives you all of the information. If you’re looking for a way to enjoy the sights of Brisbane from the river, a water tour is a sophisticated way to do it.

ADVENTURE
You can’t talk about Australia without the mountains and rocks that provide any adrenaline junkie with their fix. But we’re talking about Brisbane here. And while the great outdoors in Brisbane is hard to find, instead you can enjoy the thrill of rock climbing or abseiling in Kangaroo Point Cliffs. It’s a safe, adrenaline fuelled descent down a rocky cliff, but with the added views of the Brisbane river. As you make your descent, you will see exactly what Brisbane has to offer, while also conquering your fears.

WILDLIFE
While Australia has its fair share of wildlife, the amount of expeditions you can go on from Brisbane are too many to list. You can go on day trips from Brisbane to the Lamington National Park, or head to  the world famous Australia Zoo, home of the crocodile hunter Steve Irwin. This zoo is a must visit if you have time, make sure you get a selfie with a kangaroo! Or if you are looking for your share of koalas, you could head to the Brisbane Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, where you get an insight into one of the most famous South Australian mammals.

Brisbane has so much to offer, and it’s not just the cityscape that proves to be attractive. Instead, you can learn so much about Australia’s which heritage, relax on the river, and see a koala, all within one city. But don’t forget about the lightning…
