The United States is full of outstanding natural and man-made lakes. These 10 lakes are stunningly beautiful and worth a visit, whether they are near your home or far away.
Ladakh, the land of supernatural landscapes, is for the traveler, not the tourist. Away from the city’s comforts, nature in all its rawness renders a serenity made possible not by a casual visit, but being one with it. You may be a solo backpacker, meanderer, or part of pack of adrenaline hunters, Ladakh has space for all. We are after the road less taken, the destination less sought. Hidden in the farthest corners of this land are gems hidden in valleys, villages, vivid lives of people who live closest to nature.
A guest post by Daniel of Destinationless Travel – Kakadu isn’t just about breathtaking landscapes; it’s also a great way to learn about Australia’s first settlers and traditional landowners. The Indigenous people of Australia have a history on the continent of around 40,000 years. Kakadu gives any visitor a chance to step back in time, to see how the Aboriginals lived off the land, and learn how special it all is to them.

our next destination on our Summer Road Trip was the Columbia River Gorge in Oregon. We decided that the town of Hood River would make a great base for our adventures in the area, and it turned out to be a much better destination than we had originally hoped for, as we found vineyards, orchards, waterfalls, and amazing viewpoints around every turn.
The area west and south of Rapid City is home to several national and state parks as well as the famous and frequently photographed Mount Rushmore. While Mount Rushmore draws a huge number of visitors every year, visiting this area and skipping the rest of the region would be like swinging through Paris to see the Eiffel Tower and visiting nothing else. The park areas around Mount Rushmore include large tracts of land where Bison roam freely, one of the largest caves in the world, unique geological landscapes not found anywhere else in the world, and fun cultural and historical attractions.
Planning a weekend camping trip with a young child (or more than one) can be a real challenge, as we know. So when we set out to take a multiple-month road trip across the country, our tripathalas (the region of the brain devoted to travel) went into overdrive for several weeks. How can we possibly do this? We can’t just take a tent and some toys! We actually have to keep another human being alive!
This summer, we’re headed west on a road trip through the U.S. and Canada. As the founders of BudgetYourTrip.com, our true passion lies in travel, but it’s been awhile since we’ve been able to “get out there.” Beginning in June, for three months we’ll hit the road on a family camping trip visiting the big cities, national parks, and everything in between. And yes, we’re taking our 3-year-old daughter with us.
