Unique Places to Travel to
The world we live in has many unique places to travel to, and, sometimes, choosing only one can be quite difficult, given the numerous offers, some more attractive than others.
Unfortunately, quite often, our expectations are not met by the actual trip and what we see in the brochures and we learn from the travel agency has very little to do with the reality of the places we choose to visit, turning our vacations in an awful experience.
But there are also places so beautiful and rich in culture and history that words are too poor to describe them and that leave no place for disappointments. We have gathered these places in a short list, just to make your quest easier.
Unique Places to Travel to That Leave no Room for Disappointment
If you feel like being impressed by the high degree of civilization and the absolutely stunning natural landscapes, you just have to visit Norway, with its high peaks and deep valleys.
Hypnotic landscapes covered in the beauty of the glacial mountain peaks shining in the snow, crystal waterfalls, lakes surrounded by mountains, picturesque villages and clear blue fjords add to the magical atmosphere of the Viking lands.
The Western part of Norway has the highest concentration of saltwater in the glacial valleys, named fjords. The unique places to travel to, in this country, include glaciers, long stripes of coast, colorful mountains and waterfalls.
The 6 national tourist routes cover activities such as climbing, caving, ice climbing, glacier walking, jumping and skiing throughout the year. Few historical sites are located here, making the fjords easy to explore from the water and especially from the boats available for rent or offering tours at the base of the glaciers.
For those more into culture, Spain is one of the unique places to travel to. It ensures an unforgettable experience for anyone who loves beauty, arts and traditions. The week before Easter (Semana Santa) is celebrated in Spain like nowhere else in the world, through processions animated by colorful and richly costumed characters.
Those who are part of the procession wear suits with hoods and capes and wear various religious figures on their shoulders. They walk on specific paths, accompanied by thundering drums, while the public admires them in silence, only a murmur being heard from time to time.
The whole atmosphere is sober and solemn, the largest number of attendants being usually registered on the Good Friday. On the first day of the Easter the processions participants wear clothes inspired from Roman times, carrying colorful flowers and even their own children in their arms, while the music and the drums accompany them on the streets, allowing the passersby and tourists to take photos and videos of the event.
It is always an interesting and intense experience to find yourself in the area and feel the solemnity of the moment. Later on, after the procession ends, all participants retire to their homes and celebrate Easter with their family.
For centuries the Hispanic traditions have influenced many countries in different parts of the world and this is one of the reasons why, for any culture passionate, Spain remains one of the unique places to travel to, especially around Easter.
