Beautiful places I'd love to visit

I like to look ahead and think about where I might go in the future for my travels. The world is so big and there are so many places to visit, people to meet, and sights to see.

 

I thought I'd include a few pics here of places I'd like to go. Please reply with your own! Smiley Happy

Re: Beautiful places I'd love to visit

Is that Castle House for real? I'd seen it before but assumed it was total CGI magic.

 

I've been wasting.. err I mean spending a lot of time on Airbnb lately and have found so many places I want to travel largely because of how cool the accom is. Here is some igloo acomm in Finland where you can see the Northern Lights through the ceiling!

But realistically Finland's prob not on my next travel to-do list. One day!

I looked it up and … you're right! A fake. Smiley Sad A really really good fake though.

 

Those igloos look awesome! I definitely want to go there. Maybe sometime in 2014. Smiley Wink

 

I hereby replace my fake castle with a real one:

Re: Beautiful places I'd love to visit

Awesome thread idea Lex! I am a chronic travel-destination-googler, so what a brilliant fit this it.

 

I have been to Istanbul! It is brilliant, and just like the photo Smiley Happy

 

That cliffside cafe in France is super-cool, and got me all excited because I'm going to France in 4 weeks (eee!). But I don't know that I'll have time to hunt it down Smiley Sad

Wow, some of those places look amazing! Smiley Very Happy I think some of them would scare me though but then I'd get over that because of how awesome they'd be. Smiley Tongue 

 

Re: Beautiful places I'd love to visit

@Lex - whilst your travelling and we're watching head to those castles in Game of Thrones. They're in Crotia I believe.Or maybe Georgie can jump over there whilst she's in Slovenia. How did you come to choose Slovenia - do you have family there? 

 

@LUTW - ah-mazing! The wisteria tunnel - ohmy! The love tunnel also looks totally cool.

 

There is also that bridge in Paris where everyone hangs a lock to symbolise their friendship/love. Pretty cute & romatic! Actually here is a cool one in Germany:

I wish we could embed images - will that be possible?

That's a good question!

 

OK, here's some more.

 

Here's one place I want to visit: http://www.dirjournal.com/info/wp-content/uploads/2009/01/taj_mahal_3.jpg

And one place I've already been: http://yeinjee.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/10/amazing-race-asia-021.jpg

 

 

Re: Beautiful places I'd love to visit

@Lex - The Taj Mahal looks amazing. I've been to India, but only the southern part so didn't get there. One day!

Something I'd really love to do is see a bit more of Australia. Sometimes I think I'm too eager to go overseas without having explored my own country. One place I'd really love to go to is the Bay of Fires in Tassie:
