Visit Kravice Waterfalls in Bosnia

Kravice Falls

The Kravice Waterfalls on the Trebizat River in Bosnia are some of the coolest I've been to. Tucked away in the trees just across the border from Crotia, the waterfall spans 120m (~390 feet) and falls 25m (~80 feet). The Kravice Falls area also has a little cafe, a rope swing, a picnic area, and a place to camp if you like. I had never heard of these waterfalls before arriving in Dubrovnik, I suppose Bosnia is not the most traveled of places, but these falls were well worth the visit.

Largest Sand Island In the World – Fraser Island

Beaches, Streams, Sand Dunes and Forest cover Fraser Island

Fraser Island is one of the best places to visit in Australia, worth going out of your way to see. Fly into Brisbane, and head a couple hours North to Rainbow Beach, Tin Can Bay, or Hervey Bay, the 3 crossing points over to Fraser. You have several options on how to get around: you can rent your own 4X4 doing everything yourself, do a self drive tour, where you ride along in a caravan of 4X4s, but drive your own vehicle, or take one of the massive offroad buses in a group of 15-25. I made the mistake of doing the bus tour, because my license had expired, and this tour provided transport in and out of Gold Coast; I knew straight away this was a mistake.

Semuc Champey Pools – Lanquín, Guatemala

Semuc Champey, Guatemala

Semuc Champey is a natural attraction tucked away in the mountains of an isolated jungle in Guatemala. Situated in the town of Lanquín, get ready for a bumpy ride if you plan on visiting the pools. Semuc Champey sits above the Cahabón River, in an area where the harder rock on the surface has held strong while the river eroded the softer rock beneath. Now the pools sit a brilliant turquoise color while the muddy river runs beneath them and out the bottom of a large waterfall on the other end. The water in the pools is all rain water, which is why it’s so clear, unless it rains extremely hard for a long period of time, in which case the river may flood over the pools as well.

Mandalay Bay Beach & Pool Review, Las Vegas

Mandalay Bay Beach & Wave Pool

When choosing your hotel in Las Vegas during the summer months, the pool often times becomes an important factor. The Mandalay Bay Beach and pool is nice; it's well rounded, but not the best around. Depending on what type of pool scene you're looking for, the Mandalay Bay pool is hit or miss. It's got a lazy river, a wave pool, a sand beach, a couple bars, a casino overlooking the pool, a wading pool, and a couple other smaller pools around the outside. If you're looking for a party scene, the Mandalay Bay pool is not so crazy, but it is what you make of it, you can certainly get your drink on and have fun. Cabanas are available, but probably not worth it.
