The world is full of so many natural wonders, whether you’re talking about ancient or modern marvelsDreaming, the architecture, and engineering, or naturally occurring places of breathtaking beauty.

Frankly, I love discovering the beauty of the world we live in, and there is much to be admired; Unfortunately, there are so many places, which would make it impossible to see each site in its natural state.

For this reason…I have found going to places via the web is the next best thing…if I can’t physically travel to the site. It is a great way to admire the beauty of the world.

Besides, I make decisions on where I DREAM of  visiting.

Phenomena that can be experienced across the globe, here are a few of the most spectacular natural wonders I found:

Dragon’s blood trees of Socotra (Yemen)

Only found on the Yemeni island of Socotra, the dragon’s blood tree is so-named for its red resin, used for folk medicinal purposes.

The species has become something of a bizarre attraction, dating back to prehistoric times and is notable for its green umbrella-shaped canopy sitting atop bare, rippled-looking branches.

Caño Cristales (Colombia)NATURAL WONDERS

Caño Cristales is a beautiful river where the red Macarenia clavigera plants add blue, green, yellow and black colors to its rapids, waterfalls and tidepools when the sunlight hits a certain way.

Less than 65 miles long and only up to 13 miles wide at any point along the way, the colorful river flows through the Macarena mountain range of central Colombia and one notable stop is the Piscina de los Turistas (Tourist Pool) where people can stop to take photos or go for a scenic swim.

Glowworms at Waitomo Caves (New Zealand)

Considering New Zealand’s plethora of natural scenery and fascinating wildlife, it’s no wonder the island nation was one of the trendiest destinations of the 2010s.

Glowworms can be found throughout New Zealand, particularly in forests and on the banks of lakes and rivers, but a night ride by bike, boat or kayak through the Waitomo Caves is a great way to catch the mesmerizing show of thousands of blue-green lights emitted by these tiny insects.
