Day 124 – Surreal to Visit

In the wake of yesterdays’ travel inspiration in the form of the movie Gravity, I stumbled upon a BuzzFeed post with 27 Surreal Places to Visit which makes me want to get out a ticket and a camera and start hopping around the planet.

Some of those are specifically very much up my alley.

This looks like a place to feel tiny in. In the same way that the scenes in Gravity with earth in the background gave me a tremendous sense of scale.

Just because I think the glowing blue looks surreal. I do think I’d be a little worried to be walking underneath melting ice like that.

A glowing ocean… I think I could sit on the beach and just stare at it.

One in Australia! Score! I haven’t been to the Whitsundays yet; it looks like I should though. Barefoot walk along the water sounds like a great way to spend a week.

Salt flats do not really do anything for me as such. But the mirror effect with the water on it looks like a definite winner.

Just because of the otherworldly colours.

New Zealand is not *that* far away. And this cave looks amazing. And then there are the elves, dwarves and hobbits as well…

And this just looks like an Indiana Jones movie. Minus the face-melting.

So, how do I get a job as a travel photographer?
