Ok, well Pamukkale Thermal Pools in Turkey is literally how I picture heaven. Absolutely stunning. This entire website is full of breathtaking photos of places I didn't know existed, but now need to visit! I love the reminders of how big and beautiful the world is. There's so much more to life than just the bubbles we live in - and though it's so easy to become completely immersed in our daily hustle and grind, taking a moment during our days to remember this type of beauty exists is truly exhilarating.

So many of these photos look like well-done CGI...that's how surreal they seem to me. Nature is truly amazing. Petra is high on my bucket list, and there is actually a place in Utah that mimics the salt flats in Bolivia for anyone who can't make it there right now!

Hello Prismatic Spring - Yellowstone National Park!  Never been, but would love to visit, and apparently so does everyone else because  I was just reading the other day that Yellowstone has had an influx of people visiting since Covid restrictions have begun to wane, and it’s become quite crowded.  Rainbow mountain in China looks gorgeous. I’ve never seen mountains like that before.

Wow! These places are stunning. So many on this list are new to me, and I'm captivated by their beauty. I would love to have the opportunity to visit them in person. I suspect these pictures don't do them justice. Rainbow Mountain in Gansu, China, might be first on my list.

The Wave - Arizona which is only a 6 hour drive from my place is stunning!

I know where I am going next.

Fly Geyser - Nevada is also not too far

WOW!!!! These are absolutely beautiful! I had no idea

I really need to escape my little California bubble

Thanks for sharing this

Many blessings

This has my wanderlust ignited. So hopeful we can begin traveling again soon!

The world is a beautiful place and these photos show it. The only one that I have been to was antelope canyon. I would love to visit the marble caves. So much to do and so little time. I've got the travel bug.

The photo of Petra Jordan really hit me when I read that it's still there since the 4th century BC. If you take a look of the world map at that era, it really makes you think. Look how far we've come and where will we go? Elon Musk is already talking about living on Mars and it will become a reality. In the grand scheme of things, we still have a long way to go.
