  1. I found this on Pinterest because of the Perito Moreno Glacier photos…I was just there last week and posted about how amazing it is! Truly a must-see spot in Argentina! Now on to seeing the rest of this fantastic list you’ve put together!

    • Hey Brittany,
      Thank you so much. I just checked out your blog post about it and it really does look incredible. I bet pictures don’t even do it justice!

  2. Fantastic list. Ait Benhaddou feels like you are in the set of a movie! Would love to visit ALL these places. We’re travelling to Lake Baikal in a couple of weeks so that’s one more!

    • Thanks Luke! Me and my husband are planning a trip to Morocco this year and I want soooo badly to go to Ait Benhaddou. Was it fairly easy to get to? Did you take a bus?

      • You should defiantly go Claire, its well worth it. We hired a driver for a few days which was inexpensive, but you can easily get their by bus. Although you can do the trip their in a day, its quite a long drive so I’d spend a night in Ouarzazate which has also got something interesting things to see. Have an amazing time!

  3. Wonderful blog! I found it whil browsing on Yahoo News. Do you have any suggestions on how to get
    llisted in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying for a while
