Places to Go, Beauty to See

As Abbie posted last time, we indeed will shortly be talking about “guilty pleasures” soon, but writing is all about being inspired and today I wasn’t inspired about telling you one of my guiltiest pleasures.

You may have noticed that we Dames (Abbie and I in particular) are currently enthralled with a website called Pinterest. (I highly suggest you check it out.) One of my favorite things about the website are all the absolutely gorgeous pictures that people post of different sights around the world. Places they’ve been, places they’re dying to see, and places where the photographer has taken natural beauty and transformed it into something intensely breathtaking.

So, today, I’m going to share some of my favorites with you. Some places I’ve been and others I haven’t. And I just might share a few of my own photos with you.


Multnomah Falls, Oregon – A two-tiered waterfall on the Columbia River Gorge that flows year round.

The Breakers, Newport, Rhode Island – I’ve been here, and I highly suggest you visit too. Not just the mansion, but the whole city of Newport. It’s one of multiple mansions in Newport which was once the summer playground of America’s wealthy. This summer “cottage” owned by the Vanderbilt family and facing the Atlantic Ocean boasts 70 rooms and 65,000 square feet of living space.

The Smoky Mountains, Tennessee and North Carolina – I’ve been here too. The Appalachian Mountains as a whole are amazing, but there’s something about the Smoky’s and their mist that stops you.

The Fairy Pools in the Cuillin Hills, Scotland – Can’t wait to go to the UK and Ireland!

Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming – Road trip anyone?

Bojnice, Slovakia – A castle and spas in a beautiful, historic place. What else do you need?

Stonehenge, England – England and ancient ruins. 🙂

Half Moon Cay (Little San Salvador Island), Bahamas – My advice? Get yourself on a Carnival or Holland America cruise that stops here. You’ll never want to leave. The water is really that blue.

On a Cruise Ship, sailing down the East Coast of the United States, in the Atlantic Ocean – Words are not needed.


What do you think are some of the most beautiful places? Where have you been? Where do you want to go?
