Reader reactions: these sights are even more beautiful in real life | To travel

Whether closer or further away, many readers have visited beautiful and interesting places during their holidays, where the reality was even more beautiful than they would have dreamed. Almost everyone who responded to our call to share those sights also included beautiful photos, thank you!

Henk Bruil will never forget the sunrise at Uluru (Ayers Rock) in Australia. “I was there in February 1982. Alone with a car and a tent.”

Peru met all of her expectations for Lieke Panman. “That was in the summer of 2019. An amazing trip where I also visited Machu Picchu in peace.”

Dan Mehlbaum writes about his visit to the pyramid of Kukulcán, in the ancient Mayan city of Chichén Itzá in Mexico. “An unimaginable structure of which it is still not known how it was built.”

The Netherlands is also not missing. Hannie Engelsma calls the village Veessen in Gelderland. “You have a beautiful new harbor, beautiful floodplains, a view of the Veluwe and the new Tolbrug. A beautiful part of the Netherlands. ”

Bavarian castle

I really enjoyed the visit to Neuschwanstein Castle in Bavaria. It is a beautiful castle in the village of Hohenschwangau near Füssen. Recommended!

Buenos Aires

The La Boca neighborhood in Buenos Aires has stayed with me the most from my trip to Argentina. The houses are painted in all colors and smell like asado (BBQ) is in the air. The Argentines danced the tango in the street.

Blue splendor

I am staying in Albania, in Gjirokaster, a city with a particularly beautiful old center. Via the mountains you are in an hour in the seaside resort of Sarande with a view of Corfu. On the way you can go to ‘Blue eye’; a beautiful natural phenomenon where various shades of blue sparkle in a source.

Temples in Mexico

We will never forget our visit to the Temple of the Sun and Temple of the Moon in Mexico City. On a quiet Christmas Day, we climbed them both up the large steps. At the top of the Temple of the Sun, emotions struck. So impressive, also thanks to the stories of our guide.

Unknown waterfall

In France, in the Lot department, near the village of Autoire, there is a giant waterfall. I have lived in France for 16 years, 55 km away and had never heard of it. You can walk there from Autoire in half an hour. Incidentally, there are many castles and beautiful villages in that region.
