I know it’s a little late to start vacation plans for this year. So maybe you will have to wait until next year to visit your favorite place on this post.
Or maybe you’ll just have to add one or two of these to your bucket list.
Or maybe you’ll just stare happily in wonder at the natural diversity of our planet and the buildings humans have constructed to help us enjoy them.
Also, in case, like me, you have been to one or more of these places and your vacation photos don’t exactly capture the spectacular images you see here, let’s remember to give thanks to the artistry of the photographers who manage to duplicate with perfect lighting and mood the beauty of what they see. I wish I knew more of their names.
Please leave a comment if you have a favorite place. And if I’ve left out one of your favorite places, send me a link.
