Rest and relaxation is a must in everyone’s life. Giving yourself a break from day-to-day responsibilities and obligations allows you to recharge your batteries and prepare yourself physically, mentally and emotionally to meet the challenges ahead. Our brains are hard-wired to guide us through higher and lower periods of productivity, and the high periods of productivity are enhanced by the way that we treat ourselves during our periods of low productivity.
Sloto Cash Casino, the home of online slots real money play, wants to prepare you as you plan out your vacation adventure so you’ll optimize your travel opportunities in a way that allows you to enjoy the most exciting and enchanting vacation possible.
As you’re considering your next get-away, look at some of travel experts’ suggestions of the best vacation sites throughout the world:
Great Ocean Road, Australia
The Great Ocean Road in Australia takes you west from Melbourne on a 400-kilomoter drive along the wild and windswept Southern Ocean. In just a few hours you’ll pass through craggy cliffs, the 12 Apostles limestone stacks, a rainforest, waterfalls, the Anglesea beach, the waves at Bells Beach, the Port Fairy fishing village, the Lorne art centre, the Cape Otway lighthouse and much more. If you keep your eyes open you can spot emus, koalas, lizards, kangaroos, seals, whales, dolphins and even platapus.
There’s no reason to stay in the car – bushwalking, mountain biking and surfing adventures await while, for the culturally-inclined, there are museums, heritage attractions and galleries along the route.
Machu Picchu is a United Nations World Heritage site, a citadel left by the Incas set high in the Peruvian Andes Mountains. The buildings sit high above the Urubamba River valley to provide panoramic views of the entire region. Machu Picchu was built in the 15th century.
The complex was built using astronomical alignments and the structures were built with huge blocks that have stood for hundreds of years, even though no mortar was used. One of the things that draws visitors is its mystery – no one knows what it was used for or why it was abandoned.
Zhangye Danxia Geopark, China
The Zhangye Danxia Geopark, located in the northern foothills of the Qilian Mountains near the city of Zhangye, is known as China’s “Rainbow Mountains.” The 322-square kilometer park is known for for its colorful rock formations which were formed millions of years ago by the layering of sedimentary mineral deposits. The park features rocks that are smooth and sharp with flowing reds, oranges and yellows that blend together. Some of the rocks are several hundred meters tall. There are access roads and boardwalks that make it easy to walk among the rock formations.
Banff National Park, Canada
Banff is Canada’s first National Park and, most travelers agree, the most stunning. The park encompasses part of the Rocky Mountain range, turquoise glacial lakes, scenic drives and a mountain town and village. As you wander through the park you’ll almost certainly see some of the wildlife that roam through the area including bear, osprey, elk, bighorn sheep, marmots, pikas and more. You can just lay back and enjoy the scenery or you can try some of the outdoor activities that are available including biking, skiing and hiking. There are camping amenities for those who wish to rough it as well as cabins and lodges for travelers who are interested in a less rustic vacation experience.
The unique water of the hot springs of Pamukkale in Turkey is unique. The water is heated by volcanic lava under the ground and dissolves into pure white calcium. The calcium saturates the water and when the water rises to the earth’s surface, it bursts out of the ground and runs down a steep hillside, creating a stunning sight. The hot springs are active and visitors are welcome to come to see the spectacular natural phenomena and then relax in the hot springs themselves.
The hot springs were used by the Romans who built a spa city called Hierapolis nearby. When you visit you can explore the archaeological ruins.
Pitons, St. Lucia
The Pitons are twin volcanic spires which are probably one of the most recognizable landmarks in the entire Caribbean. They are located near St. Lucia and can be seen for miles. Gros Piton and Petit Piton soar out of the sea majestically as waves crash around their bases. You can climb Gros Piton and local tour guides are available to take you on the trek. It’s a tough climb up and an even tougher descent but the spectacular view from the top makes it worthwhile.
If you’ve ever thought about traveling to a spot that’s untouched by modern life, consider Bora Bora. The small South Pacific island is in the region known as French Polynesia, near Tahiti. The hide-away is surrounded by a turquoise lagoon that’s protected by a coral reef and sand-fringed motus (islets). Scuba divers prize the diving in Bora Bora thanks to the area’s clear, crystal blue waters and white sandy beaches. Divers can often spot one of the many species of rays and sharks that inhabit the area. Mt. Otemanu, a dormant volcano, sits in the middle of the island. It’s worthwhile to note that there is no public transport on the island. It’s recommended that visitors rent a car or a bicycle.
Oia, Santorini, Greece
Oia is famous for its awe-inspiring sunsets and views of the Aegean Sea. The island, off the coast of Greece, has inspired artists and poets over the millennium. Visitors are awed by the ancient cave houses that were built by digging into volcanic Caldera cliffs rock. There’s a beautiful 4 hour hike that takes you from Oia to Fira, beaches, a maritime museum and the famous Oia Venetian castle of Agios Nikolaos which is also carved into the cliff and affords a magnificent view of the sea below.
Marrakesh is an ancient city that embodies all of the mystery and atmosphere of the Middle East into one location. Marrakesh is located at the foot of the Atlas Mountains and the town still has the look and feel of an Arab enclave of the Middle Ages. The old part of the city was walled off by the Beibers (13th – 15th centuries) and is densely packed with mosques, palaces, the marketplace and gardens. Visitors can explore the history of Marrakesh as they wander around the maze-like lanes and alleyways, meet the local shopkeepers and sample some of the local cuisine.
