What's the coolest place you have been to?


Recommended Posts

I had a drop in orders around November/the beginning of December, and thought that it'd be the right time to... plan a trip to somewhere. My last outing in Stockholm was... a failure, mostly because of me not having the right shoes, so I decided to go back and even visited the Ice Bar.

the moment I stopped fretting about not having many orders, I had... a lot of people message me so perhaps taking 4 days off wasn't the best idea, but it was worth it!

So...

for me, the Ice Bar is the coolest place I've been to (at least, so far this year.) But I'm really curious, what was the coolest/craziest place you've visited (either nowadays or before?)

(if anyone is interested, I also have food pictures from the trip, although I don't think I had any Swedish delicacies this time round! Mostly ramen, hotpot and the like!)

Tricky.

I've gotten to visit some pretty nifty back-road places, as well as some pretty awesome museums/zoos. Yellowstone National Park, Arizona Meteor Crater, the Bug Zoo in Victoria Canada, Oak Ridge Tennessee museum of Science and Energy, North Carolina Zoo, Zoo Montana...

Might events count? I think the craziest trip I ever made was to an anime convention in Las Vegas. 

Sticking with 'cool' though: whitewater rafting on the Stillwater River in the Bear-tooth Mountains. Got drenched. VERY cold, being snowmelt run-off.

Wow. That landscape is magnificent. The ice zipper is... blowing my mind! How do they make things like that?

I'm jealous of people who have the opportunity to travel. I went to Australian with my family when I was a teenager (long, long ago), but nowhere at all since.

It's always a good idea to take a break 😃

How about that famous unpronounceable fish?

In 2021, the coolest place (in both meanings) I visited was Mount Nemrut in southeastern Turkey 🏔️

I will remember it for a long time because I had only my hoodie (no jacket), and it was too cold there 😁

Quote

Antiochus is famous for building the impressive religious sanctuary of Mount Nemrut. When Antiochus reigned as king he was creating a royal cult for himself and preparing to be worshipped after his death. In one inscription, Antiochus directed that his tomb should be built in a high and holy place, remote from people and close to the gods, among whom he would be numbered. Antiochus wanted his body to be preserved for eternity.

I'd count that actually! I guess the game dev convention thing in Poznan could be considered wild as well (for me, being new to the scene) but I feel like nothing beats Vegas!

I should have made this post in a few weeks when I go higher up North to chase the lights but... the Ice Bar was fun 😄

Your chance will come one day! I travelled a lot in the past few years but I'm definitely only starting to realize how fortunate I am. But... with enough effort, all trips are possible 😄

I think I had the - not so stinky but nice kind but not the stinky one! But not in Stockholm, just for New Years. BUT I am - slowly - starting to understand licorice. Still not a fan, but.... it's nice in chocolate, weirdly enough!
(those pictures look awesome though!)

I've never been outside of Canada. Grew up in Alberta and am now in Ontario. I've seen everything this country has to offer though. I was going to cross the border to do Xmas shopping (it's only a 15 minute drive from me to New York) but the border was iffy. I did go to Newfoundland on a drive with my son a couple of summers ago. It was amazing! Here's one photo of my cousin's horses in Alberta I had in my phone plus some from St. John's, Newfoundland (one image is an offshore island that's become a puffin retreat).

Uhhh ok let’s see 🤔 

the winter travel in Europe is definitely Canary islands in Spain (which is not Europe technically but still Spain) 

It was a bliss to run away a couple of times to Tenerife and Canary island in winter from cold London to warm 25C Spanish weather and food and still have cheap vacation. I think Tenerife we managed to squeeze in 500£ for a couple of days 🙈 

their grilled cheese with gambas and tiny grilled sardines with Cañita beer is something that still warms my heart ha ha 

pictures to follow:

I of course love Barcelona and tapas. Santorini was amazing 

Cornwall was a nice getaway from London 

Poland and Czech republic is great. 
Dubrovnik and Croatia  in general is amazing experience for summer holidays 

Saint-Petersburg in summer is bliss, feels like all European cities together in one.

It's important to make time for yourself. Before you are aware, time has passed in your lifetime and you haven't done the things you wanted to do. Time is free, but you can't get it back. You need to have a comfortable spread of work and relaxation. It helps with both your success and productivity.

I really love Greece, and in particular the islands. One of the islands really stands out for me, and that is Hydra. I enjoyed visiting Milan, St Lucia ( amazing  beaches), and Florida ( amusement park heaven). I live in the UK and we have some gorgeous scenery too. The Lake District, Brecon Beacons, Cornwall and Devon all come to mind.

So true!

Unfortunately, I have visited very few particular place and among those Cox's Bazaar, Bangladesh was one of the beautiful place I ever visited. 

World's longest sea beach and most fascinating tourist spot in Bangladesh that welcome everyone with it's beauty.

it's call country of clouds non other than Sajek Velly, Bangladesh. Cox's bazaar and Sjek Velly are the most fascinated tourist place I ever visited in my entire life though we have plenty of beautiful places that I never explore but I am thinking of visiting all the fascinating places in Bangladesh.

I travel quite frequently and I recently travelled to Goa (I got an order during the 10-day period I was gone, when I don't EVER get orders otherwise). But my favourite experience had to be when I went trekking to see a waterfall (trekking was the fun part). I love jumping across stuff, so instead of actually following the path, I tend to just jump off the ledges or climb the ledges in a straight line.

The most interesting place I have been to would probably be the Great Wall of China. I visited there with family as a child. It was a fun trip. I got to observe far east culture first hand, learn about different forms of spirituality, and I felt my soul wander around when we were in the misty forests in China. We didn't just visit the Great Wall; we travelled to several locations along the coast of China. It was a mind opening trip and one day I hope to have more trips like that one.
