    The Most Beautiful Beach I’ve Ever Seen

    Wharariki Beach in Golden Bay is really worth a visit if you're headed to New Zealand. It's surprisingly not well-known to tourists in spite of the amazing views that you can find there - and adorable little seals! I've been there a bunch of times but it never ceases to enchant me.

    Moeraki Boulders: Are These Alien Eggs?

    The Moeraki Boulders are one of the strangest geological stone formations I ever saw. It looks almost like some aliens landed on a beach and left behind some of their eggs to prepare for a future invasion of the earth. Is this the "Invasion of the Body Snatchers"???

    The Beaches of the Outer Hebrides

    "Don't like the weather? Wait twenty minutes." - Scottish saying. I thought the bad weather would never end and I'd never get to see the beach on Benbecula that I'd dreamt about for weeks. Check out the beaches of the outer Hebrides!

    The Externsteine are a distinctive rock formation located in the Teutoburger Wald region of northwestern Germany, not far from the city of Detmold at Horn-Bad Meinberg.

    Durdle Door

    Durdle Door is one of the most photographed landmarks along the Jurassic Coast. This rock arch in the sea was formed as a result of the softer rocks being eroded away behind the hard limestones, allowing the sea to punch through them. The name Durdle is derived from an old English word 'thirl' meaning bore or drill.

    Get to Wǔyí Shān for the "Da Hong Pao tea" and scenic routes through the national reserve. The place is considered to be a tourist spot, but the infrastructures are kinda not worth the required price (you'll find mostly hotels and there is no youth hostels, English is almost not spoken there).

    Last summer me and the missus went traveling to Malta. While Malta is a really beautiful country, I think it's definitely worth taking a boat to the nearby island called Comino. Comino is a deserted little island with 2 small hotels and otherwise nothing. That's right: NOTHING!

    Out to Sea: A One of a Kind Beach!

    This is a one-of-a-kind beach. My favourite one: with my pals or only with myself and I. Can't stop wondering how could I have let this one spend so much time without me, as I was wandering about, searching for that resting spot, that second home place.

    My favorite spot to get some or most of the sun? I can only think of one place, to go up North and head to our family's ancestral house in Bani, Pangasinan. Surip is located at the westernmost part of the municipality along the South China Sea. As stated in their website, Surip is ideal for scuba diving, snorkeling, and recreational fishing. Different species of tropical fishes and lobsters abound this area.
