South Africa | Blyde River Canyon

South Africa | Blyde River Canyon

Lots of people fly to Johannesburg and drive straight to Kruger National Park, several hours east of Joburg. In their rush, they miss the beauty that is Blyde River Canyon – the third largest canyon in the world after the Grand Canyon in the US and Fish River Canyon in southern Namibia.

This view is at the Three Rondavels viewpoint, where we stopped off on our way back to the airport in Joburg.

Slovenia | Vintgar Gorge

Slovenia | Vintgar Gorge

This is a view of the Vintgar Gorge in Slovenia, located near the beautiful Lake Bled.  A wooden walkway follows the river path through the gorge, and it takes about 30-40 minutes to walk from one end to the other – unless, like me, you constantly stop to take pictures!
