Here are some of my favorite discoveries so far:
The Cool Hunter
|from a cenote on the Yucatan Peninsula|
|Aurora Borealis over Iceland|
|city of temples: Bagan, Myanmar (Burma)|
|terraced rice fields in Yunnan, China|
Come to think of it, I may have found some or all of those images in my National Geographic - Photo of the Day gadget on my iGoogle page... Whatever; point is: the web holds some pretty amazing gems.
Speaking of which, I'd like to take this opportunity to plug a web-based project of my own. The website is carveyourpath.com, and it's a travel-oriented site, intended to provide backpackers and eco-tourists with a wealth of resources at their fingertips, all in one spot. If you are at all interested, or know someone who would be, please check it out. If you have ever been somewhere - ANYWHERE - which you would recommend others see/visit/experience, please use my recommendations form to send me the details, and I will include it on the site. It's sort of a group effort, but I prefer to keep it managed for now. Maybe someday, I'll find it preferable to set it up wiki-style. In the meantime, consider becoming a member and help the site grow!
Back to Stumble: if you already know, you know; if you're new, and you decide to check it out, beware - the joy can be overwhelming ;)
