Hey there! I’m Sam, a lover of Scandinavian homeware, floppy eared bunnies and pepperoni pizza. It’s probably easiest to re-wind a little, to tell you about who I am.
During my undergraduate degree in my early twenties I was lucky enough to study a semester abroad. I enrolled at one of the top universities in the world on the Gold Coast (near Brisbane) in Australia to study psychology and marketing. Alongside living the dream I worked part-time at the largest hair and beauty retailer [..]
Travelling the world is a wonderful experience which most people long to have. Being able to see as much as possible when you go on vacation will always make the trip feel more satisfying, providing you with stories, memories, and even new knowledge. To embrace this fully, it could be worth changing your approach to going away. To help you out with this, this post will be exploring four of the World’s best vacation locations for those that want to see the natural world.
Known for the huge population of lemurs calling this place home, Madagascar is a naturist’s dream come true. With hundreds of miles of uninterrupted forest which is largely untouched by humans, you won’t find many places in the worldwhich can provide the same experience as this island. There are hundreds of species of plants and animals here which can’t be found anywhere else, making it perfect for anyone with a love for nature.
The Galapagos Islands
It’s likely that you’ve heard of or seen a Galapagos tortoise at some point in your life. Growing to be one of the heaviest reptiles in the world, these mammoths can live for well over 200 years. Of course, though, these islands are also home to bountiful rainforests which are filled with unique creatures. Like Madagascar, these islands have had millions of years of isolation from the rest of the world, and this has lead to massive diversity in the natural features calling it home.
Off the coast of Central America, it’s hard to believe that an island so calm and serene could be found in this troubled part of the world. With a hotel like the Courtyard San Jose Escazu, you will find yourself in the heart of a bustling city. From your room, though, you will also be able to see endless trees, as this area is home to dense rain forests. Planning to become carbon neutral by 2021, it’s easy to see that their environment is important to the people of Costa Rica, and this shows even more when you pay a visit.
Finally, as the last option on this list, it’s time to mix a little bit of history into the vacation pot. Peru, like the other options on this list, is largely covered by rainforests, giving it a huge array of creatures and plants to learn about. Along with this side of things, though, Peru is also home to a huge amount of ancient lore. Machu Picchu is an incredibly popular destination, being home to a series of very well preserved Inca ruins.
Hopefully, this post will inspire you to start working harder to plan your next vacation with nature in mind. The world has a lot to offer when it comes to all things green, and you have a huge range of options to get you started. Of course, though, you should do some research to find the best place for you, as everyone will have something different they’d like to see.
