When you think of Hiroshima, Japan, the images that come to mind are that of that horrible day during World War 2 when my country dropped an atomic bomb on it. Since I was spending time in Kyoto and could reasonably do a day trip to Hiroshima via the Shinkansen, I wanted to pay my respects and learn a little more about the history of this place.
I’m happy to announce a guest post today! Today’s post was written by Elena from http://www.atlantisgozo.com. Elena is an avid traveler, adventurer, and blogger. She has written about scuba diving off the islands of Malta and Gozo for us today. I hope you enjoy her post, and definitely check out her site if you get the chance!
On a recent trip to Cabo San Lucas, I spent one of the days of my excursion relaxing at the Breathless All Inclusive Resort. Normally at an all-inclusive, you need to be a guest at the hotel, but the awesome thing about Breathless was that they had a day pass. I of course had to investigate. For….research, of course.
Ok, so it’s not summertime at the moment, but I wanted to put this out there for you now so you’ll have plenty of time to think about it and get prepared before Summer arrives. I just found out that the state of Alaska recruits tons of people to come work seasonally every summer in their tourism and commercial fishing industries. There aren’t usually enough Alaskans to fill all the positions, so those of us from the lower 48 (and Hawaii) are in luck!
Someday, sometime in my life, I will go on this train journey. Until then, I can dream on this Wanderlust Wednesday.
What’s better than a trip to Costa Rica?
A trip to Costa Rica with a visit to the sloth sanctuary!
I couldn’t really continue writing this blog without doing a post about Harry Potter travel destinations.
There is no photo that will do justice to the Grand Canyon as it is more vast and more incredible than I think a photo can really capture. It’s almost surreal, like a place somebody made up for a matte painting to be used in a sci-fi movie. I highly recommend you take the opportunity to go and see it at least once in your lifetime, because there really is nothing like it anywhere else in the world.
One of the most awesome things I did in Sydney was to take part in the Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb. Never in my life have I done something so unique and thrilling. It was the experience of a lifetime.
Every year, millions of people visit the Hawaiian islands of Oahu, Kauai, Maui, and the Big Island. Some visitors even make it to Lanai and Molokai.However, there’s another island in the chain that has always fascinated me, and that is the island of Ni’ihau. It is known by many as the “forbidden island” due to the fact that it is privately owned and not open to the public.
