Phillip Island, Australia

Australia

Phillip Island is a popular day trip from Melbourne. It lies just off Australia’s southern coast. Famous tourist spots include Penguin Parade and the Phillip Island Wildlife Park. You can also try glamping here, we booked ours through AirBnB. Glamping is a form of camping involving accommodation and facilities more luxurious than those of traditional camping. We had a blast and will definitely try it again!

Yosemite National Park, USA

USA

Yosemite National Park is located in California’s Sierra Nevada mountains. It is famous for its iconic vista of towering Bridalveil Fall and the granite cliffs of El Capitan and Half Dome. We trekked around the national park in winter, and it seems like a wonderland. One of the most spectacular views in the world, indeed!

Grand Canyon, USA

The Grand Canyon is an amazing steep-sided deep cleft carved by the Colorado River in Arizona, USA. I went here during the winter season of 2015 and would love to go back during the summer for a camping in some of the canyon’s hidden gems. A must-see geological formation!

Bryce Canyon, USA

USA

Bryce Canyon is an American national park in Utah known for its crimson-coloured hoodoos. The hoodoos are totem-like spire-shaped rock formations carved by water erosion in arid areas. The Native American Paiute people of the region believe that these hoodoos are people petrified by a coyote. Bryce Canyon is one of the most extraordinary natural places on earth!

The Antelope Canyon is on Navajo Land, east of Page, Arizona. It was formed due to the erosion of sandstone, through flash flood and wind flow. One of the most impressive sights I have ever seen!
