Our World Top 10 List: Wow! Natural Vistas

[ more Top-10 Lists ]

This list is our own personal top ten based on what we have seen and experienced in our travels, mostly from our year-long trip around the world in 2005. This list comprises places that took our breath away when fist sighted, which we walked away saying ‘wow!’ …

1. Amalfi Coast, Italy

Amalfi Coast Italy

This is an absolutely unbelievable coastline of cliffs falling into the ocean with splattering’s of houses and towns and tiny beaches.

2. Yosemite Valley, USA

The Yosemite National park would have to be one of the most spectacularly beautiful places on earth.

Semuc Champey, Guatemala

Semuc Champey

The locals call this the eighth wonder of the world. The most beautiful steps of turquoise cascading rock pools, next to a raging river that flows underground through a sort of natural rock bridge. We also hiked for a half hour directly up the side of the hill to a lookout, for a birds eye view of this natural wonder.

Grand Canyon, USA

The canyon view is breathtaking and cannot be described fully in words, nor captured adequately on film.

As we drove towards the north of Mexico for hours we passed though a barren rocky landscape that was like something from Mars.
