Gulf of California

Ashley Waddell United States of America - 19-Jun-06

Visit the Gulf of California's crystal-clear waters and you'll thank God you learned to swim. You won't know which way to look as hundreds of fish species swim around you, going about their day in this sunny stretch of water.

Bring your sunscreen -- we were sunburned even through the t-shirts we wore snorkeling -- and watch out for sharks; this is prime habitat for both hammerheads and great whites. You'll be grateful you took the plunge, though, and we recommend camping on one of the islands rather than staying in La Paz or (God forbid) one of those tourist traps like Cabo San Lucas.

Provins

Ashley Waddell United States of America - 19-Jun-06

When I was living in France, I bought an annual train pass for the local lines, and on days when I didn't have other plans I would go to the nearest train station, get on whatever train was leaving soonest, and ride it to the end of the line.

This is how I discovered Provins.

I visited in November or December, when no tourists were around, and in the quiet and solitude I found it easy to imagine the medieval town that once was there. Unlike many busier attractions that limit visitors' movements, at Provins you can walk all over the ramparts and follow the underground tunnels once used by secret societies. It's a fascinating step back into the past.

Mont Saint Michel and Vezelay, both in France, are amazing -- but for sheer jaw-dropping beauty, nothing beats the Grand Canyon!

Channel Islands National Park, off the coast of California. (Although if it became a World Heritage Site, maybe more people would visit -- so I take that back!)
