Travel Bucket List: Victoria Falls, Namibia

Travel Bucket List #2

Next on my travel bucket list is Victoria Falls in Namibia, Africa. What makes this place extra special besides being massive, at 5,604 feet wide, and 354 feet tall, is that there a spot in the falls called Devil’s Pool, where you can actually swim up to the edge looking over the falls. September- December is the best time to go, when the river flow and current are at a low level, and the rock barrier forms an eddy to help keep you from falling off the cliff. It is recommended though that you have someone hold you by the legs when you are taking a picture of your body somewhat over the cliff, as there have been some accidents where people have slipped off the rocks and fell off the cliff, but if you do your research and follow safety. I think this is one of those experiences where you are truly going to regret it if you don’t do it at least once in your life!

Travel Bucket List: Mont Saint Michel

Travel Bucket List #1

When I first heard about Mont Saint Michel, I knew that I would have to add this to my travel bucket list. Mont Saint Michel is located in Normandy, France and it is an island connected to the mainland by means of a long bridge. This island is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the town and village on the island was built between the 11th and 16th centuries. It also looks very similar to another island, Corona from the movie Tangled starring Rapunzel. This place seems like it’s from a fairytale, rather than real life. I mean, who doesn’t want to go see a replica of a castle from a Disney movie?
