The top of the 21, 778 foot high Kailash mountain in Western Transhimalaja has never been reached. However, every year thousands of Buddhist pilgrims hike around the mountain in an effort to cleanse their souls. With my fascination with Indian culture and Ancient Indian mythology and history, I'll be adding it to my lengthy list of places to travel too!

There's there picture book that describes Halong Bay, Vietnam so well, "Here you'll find grottos, caves and small waterfalls and rocks that look like fairy-tale castles submerged in the water. This spectacular bay in the north of Vietnam is filled with over 1,500 islands, countless rocks and vast, rugged columns of limestone. These extraordinary shapes were formed as the water wore away at the limestone over millions of years." So there you have it. Add it to your travel bucket list if it isn't already on it!

Where have your summer travels taken you this year? I'm adding Venezuela to my bucket list! South American is not only home to the widest waterfall, but also the highest. At 3,212 feet high, the Salto Angel in southeast Venezuela is the highest free-falling waterfall on earth.

The town of Bunol in Spain is home to the world's biggest food fight, La Tomatina. Every August, hundreds of people pelt each other with squashed tomatoes. Some even wear goggles so they can see and breathe in the crowded streets of Bunol.

Australia has many unusual natural attractions and I want to see all of them. Have you ever heard of a stone that looks like an ocean wave? In Western Australia, you can check out Wave Rock. Fact: it's about 2.7 million years old!

I'm not one who is super into astronomy, but visiting the Swiss Alps is definitely on my list of things to see. The Sphinx Observatory was built in 1931 and is located 11,716 feet high up in the Alps. Inside it's research station there are laboratories for meteorology, astronomy and medicine. Underneath the protective dome there is a massive telescope that researches can use to look out into the vastness of the universe. Visitors can take a high speed elevator to an observation deck and enjoy the spectacular view of the surrounding mountains.
