8 of the Most Beautiful Places Around the World by Elle-Rose Williams (Guest Contributor)


This week, UK based guest contributor Elle-Rose Williams lists her top picturesque destinations to be discovered or revisited.  Take a peek and let me know what your thoughts are!

The world is a beautiful place and for those of us with an adventurer’s spirit there are hundreds of beautiful, spiritual, breath-taking places we can discover and explore.  It’s incredible how much variety there is on this amazing planet of ours – so have a read of this list – and make a note of these phenomenal places you shouldn’t miss during your time on earth.

1. New York City

The man-made jungle – this city is definitely a feat of engineering and somewhere everyone needs to see at some point in their lives. The buildings tower above you and you can’t help but feel overwhelmed by it.  In the heart of New York City you’ll find Central Park – the huge expanse of green in a city of busy business men and buzzing tourists, and here you find some gorgeous sights to be seen too.

2. Thailand

Thailand is huge and would take a long time to explore – but every step you take is another beautiful sight or sounds. The beaches in Thailand are especially notable – made famous by the film “The Beach.”  It really is a haven and a paradise.

3. Queenstown, NZ

This small town in the South Island of New Zealand is a little spot of beauty nestled between the beautiful mountain range – The Remarkables. The water is clear blue and the nature and wildlife is beautiful beyond belief.  It feels a million miles away from any city and you’ll feel at peace here.

4. The Maldives

If you seek seclusion and you love the sounds of waves crashing against the shore – then you’ll adore this natural paradise.  These islands are home to some of the most luxurious resorts in the world – but you’ll visit for the pure “get-away” feel.  You’ll feel a million miles away from your office job and you soak in the sun on the perfect sandy beaches.

5. Venice, Italy

Venice makes this list – because also the beauty isn’t natural – it is there all the same. The city oozes historical beauty, cultural beauty, and it oozes romance too.  You’d struggle not to fall head of heels with this city of romance – as you sail down the streets with a loved one.

6. Croatia

Located opposite Italy – Croatian is a clean haven for natural beauty.  The country has prided itself on the crystal clear water, amazing landscapes and beautiful weather – and you’d struggle to find anywhere quite as relaxing and enjoyable.  The views are also picture perfect and you’ll never come across oceans and beaches as clean as the ones here.

7. Bled, Slovenia

Bled is perhaps one of the most picturesque places in the entire world.  Found nestled amongst mountains, you’ll find Lake Bled – a beautiful glowing lake with a church situation in an offshore island.  It’s truly breath-taking and quite a spiritual experience too.

8. Yellow Stone, USA

Yellow Stone is one of USA’s most protected national parks and is home to some amazing sights. With natural beauty oozing from every corner you’d be hard-pressed to find somewhere quite so magnificent.
