Hard to pick just one thing, to be honest.

The view from Volcan Cerro Negro in Nicaragua was pretty top-notch, as were the rainforests in Colombia. Hiking in the Himalayan foothills in Jammu & Kashmir was incredible as well.

I guess the most "holy shit, I can't believe I'm seeing this" was the Gezi Park protest in Istanbul in 2013. All that happened on my first-ever trip overseas. I'm sure I won't ever forget it unless I get hit by a semi-truck, go into a coma, and wake up with amnesia.

I took a boat trip to Doubtful Sound in New Zealand. We sat at the base of a sheer rock wall that was taller than the Chrysler building. When we got to the inner most part of the fjord, they shut the entire boat down and we sat quietly for 15 with absolutely no man-made noises. It was so quiet I could hear my heart beat.

I was in Batam, Indonesia, and got a massage. The girl that massaged me was like 18 years old, with a lithe body. But the single most breathtaking thing I have ever seen while traveling, were her tits. They were big for her body but they looked so perfect both in the fact that they looked nice, but on her small frame they still looked like they belonged.

Lake Crescent in Olympic National Park. None of the pictures i have taken or seen do it justice, but it's an incredibly clear blue lake (due to a total lack of nitrogen) surrounded by gorgeous mountains.

I dove off a pier into this and could swim with my eyes open completely unimpeded. I realize it's just >murrica but it truly is a special place.

I came here to say Marlborough Sound, the view from high up in Picton. God, that country is beautiful... North Island too.

But I had seen pictures, so I kind of knew what to expect. Pictures don't handle a candle to that sight though.

Thinking about it more, what really took my breath away and what I wasn't expecting was seeing Franschhoek. South Africa is beautiful in many places, especially Cape Town, but that was the one place I believe literally took my breath away.

It was just perfect.

Being inside St. Peter's is stunning. I have been in bigger enclosed spaces (a modern sports stadium is a lot bigger) but the interior of St. Pete's is intentionally designed to be awe-inspiringly huge, opulent and just magnificent.

Close runner up is a display of the aurora in Iceland.

Yellowstone in winter was also just amazing, but it was not really seeing one thig -- it was thr totality of everything over a lot of area and several days.

I visited there last year and met some very friendly ducks who seemed to have a stronghold on the feeding on the specific beach I was at. every time a new person would arrive at the beach the pair of ducks would go and visit them quacking in anticipation of food. when these new humans didn't cough up any food they would go back to roaming the parking lot.

That entire trip around the peninsular was one of the most memorable mini trips I've ever taken. Realized that if you travel alone you can cram so much more stuff into a trip as apposed to catering to other peoples wishes. But then you don't have the company and everything that comes with it.

this probably sounds stupid and cliche and brofag but the most beautiful thing i saw was a peruvian girl i met, and the time she was walking up to me in a park in lima on a humid windy night. she was wearing a dress that was red and purplish colors. she was the most beautiful thing i had ever seen at that point and pretty much up until now. i prefer personal experiences over nature experiences but i just have so much fun getting to know the place when i' travelling i don't do much nature stuff

I only spent a half hour around crescent beach chillen at this park, it seemed like an interesting spot but I had to drive home before dark. I went to shelton for a road rally and then after that I went to Quinault lake and bombed around the backroads and checked out the old growth trees. After that I visited Rube beach and then 2nd beach near la push which was an incredible beach and an interesting reserve town, seemed like a place with so much potential. I then drove up to Neah bay and took that wicked seaside road while the sunset and camped there for the night. Next day I visited Salt creek, Crescent lake and stopped in Bremerton to see the old aircraft carriers. /out/ gave me a lot of great reccomendations for this amazing 2 day trip. Next time I'd like to spend some more time around Quinalt, I spoke to a hiker who told me of some awesome hikes in that area.

My cousin took me on a trip up to West Virginia for a weekend last summer to visit family and friends and spend a do a bit of work around his ex-reform schools mentors house for some extra cash. His house was on a tall mountain in Short Gap right before you got into Cumberland so the scenery up that way was quite gorgeous. After doing the work his mentor gave us permission to go up the mountain even higher to a plot of land that hadn't been built on yet. As we got to the top we were greeted with a view that I had not seen since the day I moved away nearly 4 years prior. It was quiet aside from the birds and wind blowing through the trees nearby. Also rain had passed through earlier so the sky was a mix of different clouds with the scent of petrichor in the air.

Anyway as we took in the sights I got the idea of playing Almost Heaven through my earbuds. Finding a patch of grass to sit in further down I sat down and my mind brought me back to my earliest childhood memories of going to elementary school surrounded by farmland and exploring the woods near my grandparents chalet in the wintertime and even to my first middle school dance. Can't say that I didn't shed a few tears near the chorus but by the end I was dry eyed and took the brief walk back to my cousins car and drove off.

Not much of a traveller but this one hit me in a spot that rarely gets hurt. Pic related too.

Ljubljana, Slovenia
I've been to Europe before, but it hit me all of a sudden at a pedestrian crossing in Ljubljana.

People there were so happy, interacting with each other, smiling, laughing. The streets were clean, the air was pleasant, and the city was so pedestrian-friendly.
People gave way on the roads, followed rules.

Pedestrian-friendliness doesn't exist in India. Streets are ubiquitously unpleasant. Everything's so crowded, people are scowling at each other, fighting, spitting. The beggar kids look at you on the street. People die in ambulances no one gives way to.

Seriously? Stonehenge is the most bland sight I've ever visited. I didn't choose to go, I was on some language trip to England as a teen and there was an excursion there. You can't go very near and you can see and hear (slightly) a busy road from there. What did you like about it?

We stayed in Oxford and the city itself was 100x more interesting than Stonehenge

For me it's 2 things:

> When I was 15 I flew to Honolulu, Hawaii because my older brother lived there. On the 3rd day we took a 5hr hike that went to the center of the island right to the highest point. From there you could see all the sides of the island, a full 360 in all directions. You could see all of Diamond head, and all the way down to where surfers were getting into the water. Pretty amazing view.

> At 24 I did a tour of Europe and spent a lot of time in Switzerland. Switzerland in the summer is one of the most beautiful things on Earth. Sheer stunning mountains in the background, rivers everywhere, flowers everywhere, cows, and that german/swiss themed architecture. If you have plenty of money Switzerland is one of the nicest places on the planet.

The mystery surrounding the sight will make a curious person interested in thinking up all sorts of ideas of how and why such a thing exists. It's not as easily explained like a geographical landmark or a historical site, even pieces of art have explanations. There's very little know about the purpose of stonehenge, so the mystery arrouses the curiousity, which is an astounding thing to encounter. It's like finding 20 bucks in your sofa when you have no recolection of where it came from or how it got there, but you're happy to find it and curious of how it got there...

I've never been to stonehenge, but it's high up on my list for that very reason.

All fair. However, I've been and it's literally the most disappointing sight I've ever been to.

Not that I had very high expectations, but it really isn't much more interesting than just looking at the pictures - at least you won't hear the busy road nearby.

St peters. It was truly built on an epic scale and the interior blows the fuck out of every other cathedral I've seen. It's even better when you climb up the inside and see the people around below. They looked like ants. So cool.

Otherwise the Alps and the pyranees every time i visit (this summer in the haute Savoie was gorgeous), the blue mosque in Istanbul and some random Romanian village in Transylvania which was picturesque as fuck.

Art, anything by Bosch in the Prado or the Holbein I've seen in the Louvre. I've also been really impressed by the sculptures of Rodin. The museum is incredible.

I wasn't that amazed by the grand canyon. Somehow i just couldn't grasp it's size. It felt a bit like i was looking at a matte painting.

I spent alot of time travelling and homeless. I decided to take my gig to key West, FL and was pleasantly surprised when I got there. There is a small homeless population there and they were helpful. Anyway, at night I would get a couple of big beers and go down and sit by the restrooms on Duval. The sunsets were so pretty. I'd just sit there and soak up how good life could be and then after the sun sets, I go down to the water and get wet, and then go lay down. Even homeless it was one of the best times of my life. Gorgeous scenery and good people that care about each other.

We didn't live in a mining town or one with a history of it yet there were quite a few druggies up deep in the hills and main portion of the town. There was a massive thrift mall in the middle of nowhere that had a sketchy grocery "store" attached to the back with food dated from months prior and a clothing section on the second level. I think there was a bin full of Why did Kai have to leave Hong Kong he couldve stayed with his friend Lok at his apartment and had gotten married so they would of never been seperated ever again but the same anime but can't remember.

Other than the oddities yes it is a fun state to visit.

>In Baton Rouge, right by the Mississippi river as the sun was about to set. Thick layer of fog starts creeping up the river. The sun goes down behind the fog and lights the whole river orange.

>Watching a meteor shower in Death Valley.

>Climbing up a mountain in Glacier National Park and getting that view at the end.
