We’re number 10. Ireland that is. Well a part of it. October 30, 2016Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.
Not entirely surprised to find North Wales in the Lonely Planet’s best places to visit on Earth. Not sure though that appearing in lists like this does any great favours for some of these locations. For example…
Topping the list is Choquequirao, Peru, which is expected to see the opening of a new cable car next year and is home to a spectacular Inca settlement, which Lonely Planet describes as like “exploring Machu Picchu before the hordes and mass commerce.”
Yes. But for how long now the word is out? And Slate.com made a point that I think is very valid in a piece that I can’t now find the link to that for those who live in places on lists like this tourism can be profoundly transformative and not necessarily in a good way.
And we make an appearance too:
Taranaki, New Zealand
The Azores, Portugal
North Wales, UK
The Tuamotus, French Polynesia
Coastal Georgia, USA
The Skellig Ring, Ireland
Never been to the Skellig’s – and I don’t think I particularly want to land. But a boat trip around would be good.
