There are countless beautiful travel destinations on our planet. I would not say, that some are better than others, because every place has something special to it, but some places will certainly blow your mind. These are my top 5 travel destinations, that you definitely have to see in life…

Top 5 travel destinations that will blow your mind

First of all I have to say, that it was really hard to decide, which travel destinations are my 5 favourites. There are so many and could take 5 other ones immediately as well. But if I had to decide, I would have to go for the following five, because they are just incredibly special. I know every traveller has his different favourites, but these ones are mine so far

Unbelievable beauty at Whitehaven Beach

This one had to be under my top 5 travel destinations. During my time in Australia I went to the Whitsunday Islands with my girlfriend. It lies in the north east of Australia close to the Great Barrier Reef. We went on a sailing trip with 25 other backpackers. We did some snorkeling, a bit of hiking on the small islands, saw some humpback whales and stayed at Whitehaven Beach. I honestly could not believe what I saw. To me that was pure beauty. Nature at its finest.

There are some lookouts on the island where you have a fantastic view onto Whitehaven Beach and the whole area. Absolutely stunning. Especially when the bay slowly starts to fill up with water. It also is suppose to have the finest sand on earth and you can definitely see that. The sand actually really is white as well (that is where the name comes from 😉 ). And the water colour there… just magnificant! You really have to see this!

Whitehaven Beach is easily one of the best travel destinations on the planet

Strong nature at Milford Sound

Milford Sound is definitely under the top 5 travel destinations for a reason. Usually most travellers would maybe not even consider to have this place as a top 5, but for me it has to be. Milford Sound is just spectecular! When I was in New Zealand, I went there with Kiwi Experience. It is located in the southwest of the southern island of New Zealand. We did a boat trip around the area. You basically drive through the fjords for a couple hours. We also had the chance to see some seals and dolphins. Very nice!

Sometimes you can even spot some orcas, if you are lucky. Some of the waterfalls you see so along the way are higher than 100 meters. The captain drives really close to them so you can feel the whole power of this wonders of nature. When I stood there, watching what surrounded me, I was just fascinated! You would not believe how beautiful and pure this place is at the same time. So make sure you go there whenever you are in New Zealand.

One of the best travel destinations is Milford Sound

True paradise at Maya Bay

This is place is paradise. Heaps of people consider this place to be one of the most beautiful travel destinations on earth and I do too. Maya Bay is located in southern Thailand close to Koh Phi Phi. It is so wonderful! You can only reach it by doing a boat tour. There are many different companies that offer these tours and they are definitely a lot of fun. You will stop at some other nice spots like Monkey Bay on the way. Maya Bay is the place where the movie the beach with Leonardo Dicaprio was taken.

It is not suprising, that they took this place, because it is truely amazing. Nowerdays a lot of people go there every day. Most of them are tourists. A couple years ago, there have not been that many tourists visiting this place. Just after the tsunami in 2006 it got really popular and people started to notice this incredible piece of nature. So go there as soon as you can before it gets even more crowded.

Old temples at Angkor Wat

These temples are also one of the best travel destinations ever. They are more than a thousend years of age and have been found again in the 18th century by some french colonial masters. They are located in the west of Cambodia. You do not even need to be very interested in culture or history to like this place. Just the style of these temples and the feeling you get when you explore them is so cool.

There are many different Cambodian companies that offer tours. You will need some days to explore all the temples in the area, but you can also see a lot in a day tour. You will start really early, but therefore you will see something that you probably have never experienced before. It is very different to everything else I have seen on my travel – really unique. You also gonna find the temple, where Lara Croft – Tomb Raider was filmed. Everything you find there definitely has postcard potential to it and it is one of the best travel destinations on the planet!

Wonders of nature at Halong Bay

The 7th new wonder of nature! This is one of the travel destinations you have to see, when you are in Vietnam. It is located in the north east and just a couple hours away from Hanoi – the capital of Vietnam. I went there, when I travelled through the whole country with a motorbike. You can visit this place with a sailing tour. You basically drive along thousends of big rocks that loom out of the water.

During these tours you will also stop to see some really impressive caves, to do some kajaking and maybe visit a small island nearby. It is just magnificant! The extraordinary beauty you will see, is just not from this world. It really took my breath. Especially when the sun goes down than the ocean and the rocks start a beautiful symbiosis that is hard to explain. You honestly just have to see this yourself.

What I learned from visiting these places

As you can read here I also want to focus on the personal development, that travelling gives to you. It might sound a bit melancholic, but visiting all these places made me realize, that there is so much beauty in this world. Our planet has so much to give. You could travel your whole life, and still did not even see half of what the world has to offer on beautiful destinations.

It showed me, that we are all responsible for this world. We should treat it with respect. If not for us, than at least for future generations. Because if we don’t, than the day will come sooner or later where our kids do not have the opportunity to visit these fantastic places anymore. That is why we should all do our part and treat mother earth in the right way, so that we can still enjoy the fruits of it in the future!

      Hey kellee,

      thanks for your comment! 🙂

      I use the Yoast SEO Plugin. As far as I know it is the best and most common Plugin for that. But there might be others out there.

      Cheers Volle

    I’ve been browsing online more than three hours today,
    yet I never found any interesting article like
    yours. It’s beautiful value sufficient for me. Personally,
    if all site owners and bloggers made good content
    material as you did, the net might be much more useful than ever before.

  • Admiring the beauty of Morocco's National Parks... 😍🌴
.
One thing I learned again on my trip through this country is that being able to visit places like this is a true privilege
.
I have seen many many poor people in Morocco
.
Actually the poorest of the poorest
.
I even had to give a 10 year old kid some food that I had left in my car, while he wanted to sell me some souvenirs to get money for his family 😕
.
This would never ever happen where I come from. It's actually illegal ☝
.
But there, people have to do it
.
This was one of many situations in Morocco that taught me about something about GRATITUDE again
.
Being grateful is so important, especially for people from privileged countries
.
We all tend to forget what kind of great lifes we actually have, because things like a child labour or example, doesn't even effect us in any way
.
Most of us can actually be more than grateful for the lifes we live and the countries we are able to travel because of the money we make❗
.
Every time I travel a new country I realize this more and more
.
And I am highly thankful for those lessons each and every time, because you really only learn them when you visit poor foreign places
.
The best thing about these lessons is that you learn to be able to put things into perspective... 🙏
.
So thanks to the beauty of Morocco
.
Thanks to the awesome people I met
.
And thanks for all the lessons I have learned again... 👌
.

  • Enjoying a bit of sunlight after coming back home to Hamburg 😊
.
I just came back from Morocco today and I can only highly recommend to visit this country ❗
.
From all of the places I have visited so far, Morocco is definitely on top of my list for many reasons
.
It is no suprise that it is getting more and more popular every year
.
Nevertheless I have to say that it feels good to be back home 💙
.
I really didn't want to leave Morocco though... 😟
.
I would have loved to travel it even more, but I know I will definitely come back
.
The good thing is, there is always a next destination to travel to... 😉
.
TELL ME: Anyone having any recommendations where to travel next???

  • Riding into the desert's sunset... 🐫😀
.
Seeing the Sahara was a dream of mine for a long long time
.
When I finally realized it, I could not believe it
.
And I still can't... 🙈
.
Riding a camel for a couple hours, sleeping in a proper berber tent, having dinner and a jam session with the locals as well as watching the sunrise and the sunset was more than I ever expected 😍
.
So what does that show you ???
.
Simply that dreams come true❗
.
If you really believe in them, they will be reality one day
.
Just keep moving towards them all the time and you'll eventually arrive where you always wanted to be 💪

  • So in love view with that top view of the Dades Gorge 😍
.
And this is only the tip of iceberg... 👌
.
The drive to this place was absolutely phenomenal
.
I literally had to stop 6 or 7 times within 30 minutes to takes pictures, because the views just absolutely amazed me 👍
.
On the way there I also picked up a moroccan local as well as a german traveller, that I spent the last three days with
.
The east of the atlas mountains is absolutely worth a trip and I can only highly recommend to come here 😊
.
I also already learned something again from the locals
.
ALL of them are incredibly friendly and they always try to help you with everything you ask them, even if they can barley speak one word of English
.
And if they can't explain properly, they take you to a friend or they try to communicate with hands and feet until you understand them 😄
.
Such a lovely bunch of people ❤
.
The kindess thry have and love they spread is Definetely something to adopt!
.

  • How wonderful are the Ouzoud waterfalls??? 😍
.
I really start to fall in love with Morocco slowly❗
.
At first I had to a couple task to master but now I like this country more and more
.
Everywhere you go, you see extraordinary landscapes with stunning sights that simply take your breath away 👌
.
The ouzoud waterfalls are one of them
.
They rise up to about 110m and they are just a short trip away from the Marrakesh
.
Definitely worth a trip!
.
I am only here since 6 days and I can already highly recommend to make this one of your top destinations to travel to in 2018 👍
.
TELL ME: Does anyone know some good spots to visit along the southern coastline? 😄

  • Lost in the narrow alleys of Marrakesh 😍
.
I had a couple problems during my first two days in Morocco
.
When I arrived at the airport, the police took my drone away, because apparently you are not allowed to takes drones to this country
.
I also wasn't able to get a working navigation for the car that I have rented, so I had to sort it out in the city centre of Marrakesh, which wasn't that easy to be honest
.
Additionally I was not really prepared for the cold nights 😅
.
So it was quite a rough start
.
Nevertheless I have to say that I really like this Morocco so far❗
.
The food is great, during the day it's always sunny, the architecture is amazing and the people are incredibly friendly 😃
.
Today the REAL tour starts
.
I will leave Marrakesh and visit the highest waterfalls of Morocco in Ouzoud 😁
.
Sooo excited!
.
TELL ME: Do you have any other recommendations on what to see and do in Morocco???
.
Drop them in the comments! 😃

  • Is there anything better than a great sunset by a wonderful beach??? 😀🌅
.
I don't really know 😅
.
I have to admit, however, that I like a pretty sunrise a little more than a sunset to be honest
.
But why?
.
I guess, because a sunrise symbolises a new start 👌
.
A start to a new day
.
A start to a new week
.
A start to a new life
.
A start to whatever you want to be new
.
And that's what life comes down to a lot of times anyway, right? It's about starting things over and over again until they work out the way you want them to 💪
.
TELL ME: What do you like more, a sunset or a sunrise??? 😄

  • Portrait of a Filippino kid at Coron Island 👧
.
You guys already know that I often talk about what you can learn from travelling
.
THIS picture is the perfect example why I do that so often❗
.
Visiting the Philippines and especially seeing the local homeless kids in Coron made me learn something really valuable again
.
Even though these kids literally have nothing, they still seem very happy and they always have a smile on their face
.
The only thing you need to do is to wave, take a picture or just simply talk to them 📷
.
These kids taught me a lot about gratitude and happiness
.
Since I saw them, I try to be grateful for each and every single day, because I don't have to live under these kind of circumstances (and never had to)
.
Plus, if they can be happy with the life they live, then I can do it too!
.
Most people, including me, complain waaay to much about things that are not worth complaining about 😒
.
Sometimes it just needs a situation like seeing some homeless Filippino kids to put things in the right perspective again 🙏

  • Throwing stones around while sitting by a crystal clear swedish river in the middle of nowhere 🌲🙏
.
For me, this is the ultimate example for a perfect timeout
.
I don't know how you guys see it, but I feel that having a proper timeout once in a while gets more and more important in our modern world 🌏
.
Everything gets faster and faster every single day
.
Sometimes it's almost impossible to keep up with the pace
.
I am not saying that hustle or working hard is a bad thing (actually the opposite), but in oder to give a 100 %, you need to be fully focused and energized 💪
.
This is why I try to get my german ass to other countries as much as I can, to just simply be disconnected from the hustle and to recharge my batteries
.
For my next timeout I have Marocco on my list, starting from the upcoming sunday! 😀
.
I will climb North Africa's highest mountain, visit Marocco ' highest waterfall and ride camels through the desert
.
And all that to just simply get my head free and to enjoy life❗
.
TELL ME: How do you disconnected from daily life in the best possible way???
