Wanderlusting – Natural Wonders

Hey all. This is kind of a random post, but I wanted to make a post sharing some favourite travel photos. I’ve extensively shared about all my lucky travels I’ve been on, but it never feels enough. So this post will be a collection of the amazing snaps I’ve taken while travelling. Hopefully they’ll help with your own sense of wanderlust.

To start off, I want to share the most incredible places I’ve seen. Bonus points if it involved hiking, cause that always makes the sight so much more worth it!

Machu Picchu, Peru

Still the most incredible place I’ve ever seen. I think this is considered one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, and it definitely deserves it. It was built during the Inca Empire back in 1450 AD and made up of over 100 buildings, ranging from houses and baths to temples. We spent hours walking around there. We took the Salkantay trek up there, so it really felt like we earned our trip there!

Colca Canyon, Peru

We didn’t hike this one, instead we woke up at 3am and took a guided tour there. The canyon is considered one of the world’s deepest. It really is huge. It is also a natural habitat for the giant Andean condor (a scary bird). The canyon is made up of valleys, remote villages and a river. It’s also a very popular tourist destination for trekking and rafting. The views were definitely awe-inspiring.

Bondi Beach, Australia

I can see why this is one of the world’s famous beaches. I get it. It’s beautiful. White sand, endless blue, lots of shops and pavilions. The Bondi to Coogee coastal walk is also gorgeous. It takes a couple of hours, and you see so much natural beauty! Seeing Bondi was definitely a highlight during our holiday in Sydney a few years back.

Three Sisters, Australia

We were told to go see the Three Sisters at Blue Mountains by numerous people when we talked about going to Sydney. The Three Sisters is this unusual rock formation up in the Blue Mountains. There’s a lot of mystery and legend surrounding them. To get to Blue Mountains, we went as part of a day tour. It was really nice, we also got to see a Wildlife Park that day.

Tongariro Crossing, New Zealand

One of the Great Walks of our country, and also used in Lord of the Rings. It took around 5 hours for us to complete it from one end to the other. The scenery changes so much along the way, from swamps and hills, to mountains and sweeping lands, to eerily green lakes. I can see why so many people come to complete this walk!

That’s all for this wanderlusting post. I plan to make this recurring, and give each one a different theme of photos. We can’t go travelling anytime soon, so this feels like a nice way for me to relive some of the places I’ve been lucky to travel to before.
