Top 5 Most Beautiful Places…So Far

most beautiful place

“What’s the most beautiful place you have ever been?”

I get asked this question so often, and the answer never gets any easier! How can I pick just one?

I am on a constant quest of looking for the most beautiful, little-known places around the world. I see a picture of a place and I decide I’ll go there one day. I read about a breathtaking area, mental note taken. Sometimes I even decide to go places filmed in movies! I can be inspired by almost anything!

I live for that feeling you get when you arrive at a new place and the view or scenery is so spectacular, you just have to step back for a minute in silence and reflect on it. Before taking a few hundred pictures that will never do the reality justice.

When Lindsay over at My Life as a Foreigner posted about the 5 most beautiful places she has been to so far as a blog link up, and seeing Megan’s response on a Suitcase and Stilettos, I decided to give it a go too.

Spain is not on the list since I am incredibly biased, and I already blog about it all the time! I’m trying to shake things up!

What are your 5 most beautiful places you have ever been?
