Sep 19, 12 Five places to visit in a lifetime

There is no better way to spend your life than traveling. There are so many places that are mind blowing all over the world, even in the most darkest of corners. Amazing buildings, old sites, legendary castles, natural phenomena and so on, this is what travel means. But it happens that sometimes we can make the wrong choice and end up in a city that just isn’t for you. The best thing to do is to enjoy  and try to discover the story behind it. The truth is that no one can manage to see the whole world, but there are some places that you have to visit, so your journey on Earth can be completed. Here is a list for 5 places that are a must in traveling.

The first one is Egypt.
This land holds within the secrets of mankind.  There are always questions about the way in which the impressive Pyramids of Giza were built. If you want to see what the fuss is all about, then go and visit the archaeological sites. You will be completely mesmerized. The Pyramid of Khufu is one of the seven wonders. The Sphinx is a mystical creature, the head of a human, attached to the body of a lion and it served as a temple. Egypt is truly a place of many wonders and riddles that have not yet found their answers.

The Big Apple.



To come back to our time dimension, another place on your itinerary should be New York. It is the definition of the modern world. Full of skyscrapers, of noise, of metal and concrete pavements, that get lost in the famous Central Park, the eternal flame of the Statue of Liberty, the Museum of Modern art, all these and more are what makes New York the greatest city on earth. Coming from Europe, it will seem that you are in a new world.

Mexico should be on your list.



There is nothing better to see than the beginnings of mankind. Going to Mexico, you can get an idea about how one on the most important empires looked like, because the rest belongs to history. The Maya civilization seems to haunt the modern times, through their foretelling. If the end of the world is in 2012, then what better way to celebrate it than going back to the roots.

The enigmatic Stonehenge.

And speaking of history, England holds a surprise, the enigmatic Stonehenge. No one knows what it is. It resembles a clock, but why would anyone make it this huge? Some say that it is a worshiping place, a meeting point for druids to perform their magic. It might be a calendar, but no one knows to read it. In any case, it is an amazing traveling destination, that you shouldn’t miss out on.

Lofoten Islands, in Norway



The last, but not the least, is the Lofoten Islands, in Norway. This is where you can see nature’s form of entertainment, the Aurora Borealis, the Northern lights as they are called. A light show, that is provide by nature, a show where you have the best seat there is. It is an amazing feeling to be a part of it, making you feel as if you were the only person on the planet. It lasts for six months, from the 21st of September until the the 21st of March, so there is no hurry just yet.

Traveling is a personal experiencing. It doesn’t really matter where you go, what guide you use, but what you understand from what you see. So,  the next time you travel, keep your mind opened for new cultures.
