This is a photograph of Osorno Volcano, located in Los Lagos (the lakes district) of Chile. Chile is a beautiful country with a LOT of really interesting and diverse natural beauty to offer tourists. This is one of the more famous locations associated with Chile’s natural beauty, and it’s easy to see why. This imposing Volcano stands at 8,701 feet, or 2,652 Meters, and is part of the Chilean Andes. If you are looking to Visit this area of Chile make sure you have to appropriate attire. It gets COLD here! We  visited a while ago, I think I took this like 6 years ago!  But one of the things I remember very distinctly about the experience, besides how gorgeous it was in this area, is that my family was not prepared for the elevation and the cold climate that comes with it. So just do your research!

These pictures were taken at the amazingly beautiful Tat Kuang Si Waterfall, just outside Luang prabang, Laos. The waterfalls are absolutely gorgeous, and, you can swim in any of the pools that are marked for it (there are signs to tell you which pools you can or cannot swim in). The you can find a place in town to set up a visit here, and often the trips are a joint package with some of the other sight seeing stuff in the area. Just outside of the waterfalls there is an area where you can see asiatic black bears (in captivity); this area is a rescue center through Free the Bears. The group rescues bears that were captured for use in traditional medicine. The area is really cool, and the waterfalls are just stunning. Absolutely worth a visit!

Another picture of beautiful Kenya, taken while on safari in Samburu National Park. The tour company we use is Steenbok, and they’re really wonderful. We’ve been on safari in Kenya twice and we used them both times, and both trips were fantastic. No matter what you are looking at in Kenya, the scenery is always, always beautiful. I don’t think i’ve ever been to a country with such diversity, in terms of landscape (or maybe I just haven’t been exposed to it the way I have here) but i’m in love with Kenya and all of it’s natural beauty. If you have the opportunity to go, I would strongly recommend exploring this amazing country.
