I would love to see amazing mountains with their breath taking views. As well as different islands with their beauty. I think it would be amazing to visit Yosemite national park as well as see the very giant trees in different areas of the world. There are just so many beautiful places I would like to visit.

I have the luck of living ina country that has several different kinds of scenery. We have the dryest desert in the world, an amazing ocean (the Pacific) great mountains (the Andes) and the ice of the South Pole. Check Chile, South America, when you want to see wonders of all kinds.

I'm glad to hear that the area you live in has beautiful scenery that you can enjoy. I will definitely have to look into the areas that you mentioned when I'm searching for great places to visit and see.

Now it is easy to go sightseeing online when we don`t have the time or the money. I do that a lot. Check on my country, Chile, and watch how the dryest dessert in the world blooms when a very small amount of mist falls some years.

I love nature. I even have the compilations of the best places i want to see in the near future. i also take pictures of things and places that I come across with. i guess we are so blessed with all the beautiful things around us. However, we forget how to value them and one by one, these blessings are being destroyed by men.

I think it is a good idea to write down and think about the different places we would like to visit and see. There are a lot of beautiful, majestic places that we can see on this planet. It is important that we take better care of this beautiful place.

I love everything mother nature has to offer but i love beaches a tad bit more. Everything about beaches make me super happy. I'm like a little puppy when i'm at the beach. I've never seen a mountain up close. So, i'm hoping I get a chance soon.

I'm glad to hear that you love beaches. I actually can't ever recall going to an actual real ocean beach. I hope some day to do that as well as see a mountain. Those types of things would be great. I hope you will be able to see a mountain as well.

Human brains. Not only are they high in fiber but ... really, they are the pinnacle of all creation. The only thing they can't create is something more-creative than the human brain. And boobies. Those are nice too

I agree with you. The human brain is absolutely amazing. It's crazy all of the unique things about it and all the information it takes in and puts out without us even having to think about it.

I love palm fringed beaches that I have seen in places like the Seychelles, the Maldives, Samoa and the Cook Islands. I adore seeing tall mountains and have climbed three of them in my life time. I have visited some amazing and exciting looking caves. I love to see forests where animals are happy living. I visited Kangaroo Island in South Australia where I saw a lovely looking natural archway. There I also saw wonderful looking rocks. I loved seeing the Australian wildlife there. Wow! We live in a beautiful world.

We really do live in a beautiful world. I'm glad that you have been able to do and see so much. It would be grand to see the places that you mentioned. I hope that sometime in the future I will be able to travel to some neat places. It will take a lot of saving and small sacrifices now.

I'm glad to hear that you enjoy the sunshine. Sometimes we can take simple things like this for granted. But it is absolutely amazing that the sun comes up every day. That is awesome that you are able to enjoy the forest the way it is around your home.

Hello Dominique Well, there are so many places and things to like about our Earth. First of all, just like Jack O'Neill says in Stargate sci fi series: "Trees, trees and more trees. What a wonderful green universe we live in, eh?" I have a great respect for nature and it's power of regeneration and adaptation to extreme conditions.

I completely agree with you. It is absolutely amazing the earth's ability to restore itself if humans are able to live certain areas alone for awhile. Life can come back to certain areas that have been damaged.

You know what seeing those beautiful natural things makes me always think of God since He is the one who created all of them. I don't know what kind of religion you have but to me, these creations makes me think that God is really amazing and all intelligent and wise, and words cannot express how I marvel at God's amazing works. I have not been to those places though, I have only seen them on television and pictures, and they are all beautiful. I wish I could travel in all these places too. I'd love to see the Yosemite national park too, and the Grand Canyon, and MT Fuji, and Niagara Fall, those places I dream to see someday...

Yes I agree with you. We can't help to marvel at God's creation. It is absolutely amazing. All of these beautiful places, all of the living creatures and their intelligence was created. It is amazing that we are able to enjoy these beautiful aspects of life.

I love the ocean the best , I love to smell the sea breeze as I walk on the beach . The water is so blue and I would just sit and take it the view all day if I could . I want to see other countries , like historical countries like some place in Rome and Egypt .

I can't ever recall being to the ocean. But I hope that in the future I will be able to experience it. It does sound like it would be a wonderful experience. It would be great to see places like Rome and Egypt.

I know this is talking about the natural world but there is nothing I appreciate more than music. It just makes live so much better.

I'm glad to hear that you love music. Music really does add a lot of joy to our life. And it is a simple way to enjoy our lives. We don't have to spend thousands of dollars to enjoy music like we do if we want to travel to some beautiful scenic area.

I'm glad to hear that you enjoy seeing the mountain and the beaches. I have never been to the ocean that I can recall of. But someday I hope too go. It would be nice to take some trips like that in the future.

Yes the elements are amazing. It is at times mind boggling to think of the many different elements and what they can do. Sometimes it's even hard to understand how they really work.

Well, when we went to my wife's home province way back then, i would never forget the 3-day travel through a passenger ship. I mean, the scenery especially the big vast body of water, lol! At night, you could feel the serenity with the soft breeze of air especially the night sky with all the glitters of the stars above. At daytime, i'm overwhelmed by the sites of different islands with all the mountains, trees, et cetera. I guess that was the time that i realized that my country was really big, lol!

Yeah it would be nice to travel on a ship to see different and new areas. I have never been able to do anything like that yet but I hope in the future I will be able to. I can imagine how beautiful different islands must be.

I just love a lot of mountains and valleys. Specially winter is the time for me to pack up my stuffs and go mountaineering. I would climb any mountain just to get a glimpse of that breath taking view from the top and the cold breeze which gives me immense pleasure and most importantly, when we get to the top in the early mornings, the fog and the feeling of being close to the sky is just out of the world. I am not a person who likes to be in water, but I love to be amidst an island and enjoy the clean water look , it really makes me feel calm and peaceful .

There are so many things that I would love to see, but money stops me. You hit it right on the nail when you mentioned the big trees. I always wanted to go to the Redwood Forest and see those beauties. Just to stand beneath one and look up would be a dream. The Sequoia's would be breathtaking too. I'd even love to visit the Everglades, the Grand Canyon, and Yosemite. There's just too many places to mention.

I understand and agree with what you are saying. Unfortunately money does play a big part in being able to see a lot of places we would like to. I hope that you and I both will be able to save and see at least some places we are interested in visiting.

For some strange reason I love to walk barefeet in grass. I like the feel of it on my feet and I like long and big yards. I am looking for more gras when we move. I live in a building with concrete all around me. I like the leaves changing in the fall as well. even though I hate snow. I like to eat it when it is fresh on branches. I also like to look out the window and watch it snow. I hate walking in in like today.
