With more of us traveling it has become harder to find places off the ‘beaten path’ and escape the throng of tourists. The internet tells us of the top places to visit before we die or a list of unusual beaches to visit, we can’t be surprised when we get there that it is covered in people doing exactly the same thing.
While we travel we look for these places where we can forget where we are, where we can enjoy the moment and the surrounding scenery without the disturbance of others. They are becoming harder to find but when you finally find one the feeling can’t be put into words.
While traveling into Kakadu National Park in northern Australia we were instructed by the visitors centre to pull over after a few kilometres up the road and walk down a small path for 15 minutes where we would find a small waterfall. When I walked through the trees and the area opened into one of the most beautiful places I have ever been. My own sanctuary.
It is impossible to capture the feelings I had at that moment as I sat and stared at the waterfall in a photograph but every time I look at it I feel as if I am right back there in that moment and the feelings I had all come rushing back.
Hopefully it can do the same for you.
