Blissing Out in the Dry Tortugas, West of Key West, Florida

  • Amber Nolan
  • 16 May 2012

“Wow,” is all I can say. From this angle, we can see the entire length of the island. It seems artificial, and certainly doesn’t look like any other part of Florida. I feel content with this paradise around me, and am completely “blissed out.” I hope the ferry never drops visitors off at this island. I appreciate it so much more knowing how far I had come to make this happen.

When I look at this photo I get a taste of what I experienced kayaking in Ang Thong National Marine Park. ‘The sublime’ is to feel our smallness in the natural world, to feel overwhelmed by its power and greatness. In turn, this feeling of wonder and humility grants us a connection to that world.

Take It Slow: Get off the High-Speed Tour Bus!

  • Laurel Angrist
  • 12 March 2012

You’ve seen them flocking together at every major tourist site: groups of travellers in bright Hawaiian shirts escorted by their tour guides, who lead them around like herds of cattle. They snap photos with their brand-new cameras and are then wrangled back on the bus. One hopes that one day these folk will realise this is no way to see the world, watching the landscapes whirr by instead of savouring the journey.

Never Miss the Iguassu Falls in Brazil and Argentina

  • André Franchini
  • 13 May 2011

As a Brazilian involved in the travel market, I’ve heard a lot about the beauty of the Iguassu Falls, one of the widest waterfalls in the world – more than three times the width of Niagara Falls – located right where the borders of Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay all touch. Then, when my close friend Wallace, who also works in tourism, said he was planning to visit the Iguassu Falls, I thought it was a good chance to take in this natural wonder from both sides of the border.

If an epic experience means going beyond what is usual or ordinary – to encompass that which is extraordinary, momentous and great – then that is how I would describe my first descent on the creeking Mac-Mac River, beginning from the thunderous Mac-Mac Falls, a national monument of South Africa.

  • Lee Sheridan (Photo and Text)
  • 2 January 2011

This photo was taken in June 2010 off the coast of Koh Samui in the Ang Thong National Marine Park, which is a collection of 42 islands spread over 100 square kilometres. Most of the islands are close enough to each other to create a spectacular panorama. A day trip out to visit these islands is a great one day tour option from Koh Samui itself.
