“I want to stand as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all kinds of things you can’t see from the center.” -Kurt Vonnegut.
This is horseshoe bend and a view of the Colorado river located in Page, Arizona. You have to hike a short distance from the parking lot in the sand to get to this view. Be careful when you get to the edge, since there is no warning or guard rail to protect you from the 1000ft drop!
Here are few tips if you visit: visit the lagoon the day you arrive or day you depart to save you time. The facility provides luggage storage and lockers for personal items. You must take a shower before you enter the lagoon. Also, ladies tie your hair up and don’t let your hair get wet in the lagoon. The water will damage your hair and make it lifeless for a week or so because of the minerals in the water. It also helps if you leave conditioner in your hair that the shower room provides.
Oh and the fun stuff, around the lagoon they have areas where they have the free mud which you can apply all over your face & body. Have fun!
We are up in the clouds on an ultralight flight in Pokhara, Nepal. This was truly a once in a lifetime experience. You get a good close up view of Machhapuchhre (fish tail) mountain which is part of the Himalayas and if you look below you see villages, lakes, rivers, valleys and much more. What an amazing view all around! Please check out Avia Club Nepal to book your ultralight flight.
I am lost in the beauty of Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi. The mosque is the largest in the UAE and 8th largest in the world. It has one of the most beautiful and detailed architecture i’ve ever seen.
Also, I’m wearing an abaya for the first time which females need to wear before they enter. It’s provided by them for free to borrow.
Doesn’t the background in this picture look like a painting or a wallpaper?! This was in Pisac, a peruvian village in the Sacred Valley of Peru. It’s known for its Incan ruins and breathtaking scenery. We are in love with Peru, the people here are so humble and the food is awesome!
Travel tip: If you visit Peru, drink the coca tea which can help in the prevention of altitude sickness or you can also find altitude sickness pills at the airport.
I am in the beautiful Kingdom of Bhutan in the largest fortress & Buddhist monastery in Paro known as Rinpung Dzong. There are so many historic sites this country has to offer. You will feel like you are taken back in time when you step into the many forts and monasteries built as way back in the 7th century.
Travel tip: Unless if you are from India, Bangladesh or Maldives independent travel is not permitted in Bhutan. In order to visit, you must travel on a pre-planned, prepaid guided package tour which includes visa, food, tours, guides and lodging offered by certified travel agents. This was done to avoid negative impacts on the culture and the environment of the country.
