My Inspiration

I find that the really good part of being "trapped" in Planet Earth, and the one that makes me want to jump!, is that we get the chance to explore the many wonders and awe striking phenomena of nature -which can sometimes really bring tears to my eyes and move me in very special transcendental ways- plus, we have the benefit of having at our disposal an immense array of human production, from architecture to gastronomy, from design to literature, every aesthetic manifestation of our great creative potential; art in its different forms can occasionally have that divine little thing that makes me feel flabbergasted, touched or even changed. I hope to share some of the "God on Earth" practical experiences that I've collected during my travels through this humble blog.

Vietnam´s Natural Wonders

Halong Bay, Vietnam
Vietnam has a very accidented landscape, which has been sculpted and transformed by natural forces, throughout centuries, to bring about some of the most unusual and beautiful environments I have seen. Two examples of these amazing sites are "Halong Bay" and "Tam Coc". Both of these natural wonders are analogous archipelagos with bizarre and huge rock formations that protrude from the sea (in the case of Halong Bay) and the land (in the case of Tam Coc), but different in that "Halong Bay" is located in the turquoise waters of the Gulf of Tonkin in north Vietnam, which means it is a sea attraction, while "Tam Coc" is embedded amongst emerald rice-paddies and the Ngo Dong River.

I´ve already posted a link to the article which describes and gives information on Tam Coc, with beautiful images of the whole experiential visit; nevertheless, I´m posting it again for those who missed it:

Now you can compare the Tam Coc scenery and experience with Halong Bay, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that will take you on a fantastic epic journey through beauty and adventure:

  If you are traveling to North Vietnam, I would recommend visiting both places, each one has unique and picturesque qualities that are very enjoyable and surprising!!!
