Hidden Paradise


Michal Mendelbaum, The Storm Writer



Spain, Australia, France, Greece, Brazil. Most likely, at least one of these popular vacation spots are on your bucket list. If you’re fortunate enough to go, though, make sure you know there is more to France than just the Eiffel Tower. Here are some uncommon “insta-worthy” vacation spots that you’ll be dying to visit.


  1. Zhangye Danxia (China)- This is the kind of crazy setting I see in my dreams.
  2. Salar de Uyuni (Bolivia)- Now this is something I can see myself doing.
  3. Lençóis Maranhenses (Brazil)- A bunch of lagoons in the middle of nowhere, seems like the place for me.
  4. General Carrera Lake (Argentina)- Almost looks like an illustration in The Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister.
  5. Cano Cristales (Colombia)- Not your typical river, is it?
  6. Hitachi Seaside Park (Japan)- I bet you’ve never seen flowers like this before.


The world is undeniably beautiful. But without our help, it will cease to be so eye-catching. We have 12 years to get climate change under control before our beautiful world turns into this: 

It is time to start taking care of Earth. Invest in renewables. Waste less. Cultivate your own food. Use compact fluorescent light bulbs.

By doing this, we can preserve Earth’s beauty for ourselves and future generations. It’s on us.
