No worries, I just saw the first bit and thought, I have seen this before......

They are all interesting places that I have never heard of before.

This thread was an extremely nice diversion for the near havoc type of weeks I've had to contend with.

Simply wonderful, and thank you so much for giving my brain a tranquil visual rest.

I've been to (and swam in) the blue grotto, which was spectacular, but that's it for me. Really nice post!

Wow, what was it like? Warm? I always thought it looks like a warm bath but I'm guessing it probably wasn't lol?

Thank you for the wonderful experience.

I have heard of only a few of these and consider myself a lucky person to have seen these small glimpses if not the entire experience of being there.

For all of the darkness that we share here to help protect each other, its nice to have a flash of hope in the eternal.

Thank you for sharing this wonderful beauty.

It was a much needed break; I couldn't even begin to pick a favorite.

I am now so mad,in 1988 I was on the Island of Capri for two days and heard nothing of the blue grotto.I was bored because there was nothing to see.It was the first time I had ever been on foriegn soil(I first set foot in Naples,Italy then by boat to Capri.I feel I lost out.Oh well thanks for showing me what I missed.

Wow, just when I thought I had every place I ever wanted to visit finally mapped out!
Those were awesome photos, and I couldnt stop smiling. This planet of ours is always giving us such wonderful surprises.

Beautiful post. S&F!!

Especially loved the South American storms.

Ive been to some world-wonders and conclude that man-made still does not beat nature made. I highly recommend actually visiting some of these places - the beauty of the actual experience (as opposed to a 2-D picture on the internet) really puts you in a pleasant daze for days.

The rock spindle formations in Madagaschar remind me of the alledged 'forest' photo on Mars surrounding the black hole.

It's amazing that we see these oddities on other moons and planets and can't explain them when all we have to do is look in our own backyard.

Awesome photos..

Thank you so much... this really made my day. These should be the 30 places to see before you die. Such magic our world holds... that very few actually know about. IT'S A SHAME.

An awesome thread, thank You Everlasting storm, thats amazing!

I believe I had only heard of maybe 3 of these before this thread. Thank you so much for introducing me to those amazing natural wonders. Just goes to show that the earth still has so much beauty and wonder even in this day and age.

Amazing pictures! Like everyone else who has commented, I would love to visit all of these places. It is a pleasant dream, homping that one day we will have the money and time to do this, but the sad truth is that most of us never will.

The way things are going in the world today, these sites will nearly certainly be destroyed, tainted, disrupted by increasingly erratic weather patterns etc....

What i would ask is this... Does anyone know of a website or such (Maybe here on ATS?) that we could all get our heads together and create the best plan possible for visiting these sites before its too late? You know travel advice, cheapest ways to get to these sites in particular etc.

I bet if everyone got together and worked on it we would be supprised on how little it would cost. Just a thought, if anyone has any ideas that would be great. I for one need to see some natural beauty in my life, get away from the fear and doom and gloom we all seem to be living in today. It isn't good for any of us. Like skyfloating said... actually seeing these places in the flesh and not on a computer screen must be a most amazing feeling!!!
