Yahoo! Travel names ten serenely spectacular spots around the world
Iceland’s Blue Lagoon, a geothermal spa, is among ten beautiful places around the globe to see “before it’s too late”, in a list by writer Nikki Bayley published this week on Yahoo! Travel. The overwhelming mysticism of nature is what absorbs visitors here, especially “early on a snowy morning, the steam hanging like a silvery curtain over the milky-blue pool.” Change quickly and enter the lagoon’s hot waters and stay submerged, watching the snowflakes dance around the landscape.
Other places mentioned include the dramatic Canadian Rockies, watching sperm whales and dolphins near Kaikoura, New Zealand, passing through the world’s biggest urban rainforest in Rio to see the statue of Christ the Redeemer and experiencing the majesty of Victoria Falls in Zambia.
