The World’s Original Beach

 

How is that nature manages to combine colors and shapes in a way that even we find it hard to imagine? This question may arise when we look at pictures of the coast of the island of La Digue, the fourth largest island in the archipelago of Seychelles.

In Seychelles, there are beautiful and idyllic tropical beaches. But on the La Digue island, the beaches are unique. The rocks eroded in a manner that is so masterly, that it turns the landscape into a kind of masterpiece and a carved marvel. What makes this more beautiful is that it is combined with tones ranging from the turquoise sea, white sands and the lush green tropical vegetation.

The Venice of the North

 

We know that Holland is a country where the channels are no rarity. In fact, Amsterdam is known as the city of canals.

However there is a small Dutch town (maybe not so well known among the great attractions of the country) which is known as the Venice of the North, or the “Venice of Holland”. This is called Giethoorn, in the province of Overijssel.

In fact, until not so long ago, it was completely free of cars and there was no other way to get around except by boat.

The Twin City by a Bridge

 

The Stari Most bridge seems the perfect link across the river in the old town in the city of Mostar. In addition, the bridge is the symbol of reconciliation, that was being rebuilt after the war in Bosnia. The bridge represents the union between the two cultures that divided the city. In the pictures, and from all angles, the Stari Most bridge is very beautiful.

The Doinyo Lengai Volcano in Tanzania

 

Inside the Great Rift Valley, there are numerous geological curiosities. Among them is the Ol Doinyo Lengai volcano, a volcano of “washed white”, that is unique in the world for its ejecting lava that flows like water.

The lava’s temperatures are “only” 590° C (which in the temperature range of Volcanic lava is quite “cold”).
