This attraction is not yet discovered worldwide. So, take the chance to be one of the few to experience the fresh destination open Monday to Sunday from 7am to 6pm.
The Bastei Bridge
The name of the destination is the German term for “Bastion” which means a projecting part of a fortification built at an angle to the line of a wall. Well, the bridge doesn’t really lead anywhere but simply spans a number of the huge rocks which make up the Bastei formation. This towers 194 metres above the Elbe River and its actually located in the sandstone mountains of Saxon Switzerland Elbe, Germany. You might be wondering where did the rocks come from? The jagged rocks were formed by water erosion over one million years ago. Being one of the most conspicuous lookout points in Saxon Switzerland, the destination is really a world-renowned tourist attraction. Tourists who perched atop can take in a huge panorama of gorgeous German countryside.
The common movie scene when someone goes and walks in a seemingly endless desert, starving and thirsty. Then suddenly an Island or a lost city will appear in the middle of nowhere. But once they get to the place, it disappears because they were just hallucinating. However, let’s change the end part of the story. In the Ica Region, located at the southwestern part of Peru, a town called “Oasis of Huacachina” exists! This isolated unspoilt paradise is not a mirage. In fact, 115 people lived there. Oasis of Huacachina also has rustic hotels, lake, shops and even an oasis library.
The origin traces back with the lake. It was believed by some to have healing powers, that in 1940s Peruvians had travelled to the lake to bathe in waters.
“One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things.” Definitely, Henry Miller was right about that. I hope we were able to let you know new places to visit this year.
