The pictures are so stunning! I really enjoy being one with the nature so I would really love the places with mountains or lakes to hike or swim into! For places like Calgary, Canada – the picture of the mountain and lake seems so surreal. I can almost smell the fresh air even from the screen. Thanks to the travel destinations you’ve recommended. Now, there’s more added to my list. 🙂
