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.
Hang Son Doong cave
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.
Mendenhall Ice Caves
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.
Sea of Stars
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.
Salar De Uyuni
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…
Cenotes of Yucatan Peninsula
And this just looks like an Indiana Jones movie. Minus the face-melting.
So, how do I get a job as a travel photographer?
