I recently published a post on My Bucket List Top 5 Cities to visit… While I adore exploring cities, the natural beauty of our planet also captivates my imagination and inspires my wanderlust! As such, there are several unique activities/experiences which certain (more remote) destinations offer that are also top of my travel bucket list:
From me, one of the best things about travel is the amazing people you meet along the way! However, when mingling with fellow travellers and locals, once they find out I’m English there are several inevitable questions which are sure to come up in conversation.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m all up for a little bit of small talk but, some such questions inadvertently spark an inwards eye roll and here’s why:
Although travelling to our Earth’s remotest and undiscovered Magical Places is all well and good, there’s certainly a few equally as magical cities which have inspired my wanderlust, fuelled my desire to explore, and captivated my imagination. But alas, money, time and accessibility has meant I have not yet been able to explore the following cities at the top of my Bucket List. However sometimes the waiting makes it all the more worth it… right?
Following an eye opening First Impressions of the Mythical Las Vegas , our choice of accommodation – The Cosmopolitan, set the stage for the rest of our visit to be filled with disbelief and immeasurable grandeur.
None the less, home to 6/10 of the worlds largest hotels, choosing your base within Vegas can be somewhat overwhelming. The city houses an endless amount of accommodation, with each hotel offering a unique niche, style and experience.
So why The Cosmopolitan?
Furnace Creek Inn, and its sister accommodation (Furnace Creek Ranch) amount to form Death Valley’s main service centre. Thus, using the inn as a base camp, you can easily access the National Parks main ‘attractions’ within 1-2 days… Depending upon what pace you want to explore at.
Welcome to Earths’s Magical Places
Earth’s Magical Places was created and is run up me – Rachel Clarke. A 19 year old British adventurer with an ambition to see as many of our planets ‘magical places’ as possible.
Whether that be a whole country, city, mountain range, beach or isolated village. Our world is full of beauty and wonder that’s just dying to be seen…
Cambria, California was the next stop on our American Road Trip.
We opted to stay in the adequately named ‘fog catcher inn’. which, with its rustic charm and amazing sea views instantly made us feel welcome.
When I woke in the morning, after a very comfortable nights sleep, the relevance of the Inn’s name became clear. The morning’s fog was rolling off the sea, creating a ghostly but dazzling view.
Cambria’s equally as adequately named ‘moonstone beach’ was steps away from the inn. Its rocky and almost rugged outcrop seemed alien following the expanse of golden sand beaches in Los Angeles.
