Life’s full of adventure—all it takes is a bit of courage and a dash of curiosity to unlock the door that leads to wonder, amazement, and experiences that you’ll be telling your friends about for decades to come. Of course, we’re talking about travel and all the great things you get to see when you set your daily drudgery aside and go where your feet (and your plane tickets) take you.

The ‘World Beauties and Wonders’ Facebook page, created by Turkey-based Anatolian Leo, is an incredibly popular project that highlights some of the gorgeous views that you’re bound to come across in your travels. We’re featuring some of the project’s best pics to share with all of you today, Pandas. Hopefully, this will inspire you to step out of your comfort zone and see what awesome things are out there, waiting for you.

Scroll down, upvote your fave pics, and tell us which ones you loved the most and why. Do you have any stunning stories from your recent trips? You can tell us all about them in the comments.

Bored Panda got in touch with Patrick McGranaghan, a surveyor from Colorado and a huge fan of geography, to have a chat about traveling abroad. He shared some of his exciting experiences from a recent trip and was kind enough to reveal some of his travel hacks, too. Check out our exclusive interview with Patrick below, Pandas.

The Japanese Have Been Producing Wood For 700 Years Without Cutting Down Trees

The Japanese Have Been Producing Wood For 700 Years Without Cutting Down Trees

 In the 14th century, the extraordinary daisugi technique was born in Japan. Indeed, the daisugi provide that these trees will be planted for future generations and not be cut down but pruned as if they were giant bonsai trees; by applying this technique to cedars, the wood that can be obtained is uniform, straight and without knots, practically perfect for construction. A pruning as a rule of art that allows the tree to grow and germinate while using its wood, without ever cutting it down.
Extraordinary technique.(Quote from Mary Conceicao Coelho)

Patrick, who works as a surveyor in Colorado, recently went on a trip to Panama. He visited the Central American country this April to see the canal there.

"For most people, it's probably just like any other river or boat ride, but for me, it was very enjoyable as I am fascinated by engineering projects. It took about 8 hours to go through the canal from end to end," he shared his experience with Bored Panda.

"Along the way, there are many ships passing from countries all over the world," Patrick revealed to us that it was a wonderful adventure.

Never been across the bridge, but have flown over it many times landing at Kastrup. Also watched quite a good detective series in Danish/Swedish where someone was murdered and the body left right in the middle of the bridge. They must have spent hours on the name, as it was called The Bridge (Bron/Broen in Danish/Swedish). https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1733785/

Bored Panda also asked Patrick to share some of his traveling do's and don'ts with our readers. "I think the most important thing is to remember to have fun. No trip is ever going to be 100% perfect," he said that it's vital not to stress about every tiny detail being 'perfect.' 

"There will be times where weather goes bad, places are closed, it's difficult to find good food, etc. This is all part of the experience. Enjoy your time because you'll miss it when you're back home," Patrick shared.

"Don't forget to have backup plans. Unexpected interruptions happen and you just have to adapt."

We’re huge fans of travel and new experiences here at Bored Panda. However, at the same time, it’s important not to get over-hyped before your trip. Keeping realistic expectations of what you’ll likely experience will help you stay satisfied with your adventure, overall. Very recently, we spoke to one of the moderators helping run the multi-million-member r/travel subreddit.

They stressed that keeping our expectations low or having none of them at all will improve the trip, no matter what it is. Something else that can help you enjoy yourself more is putting in the effort and doing some more in-depth research about where you’re going, the history of the place, and the local culture and customs.

Fun word fact: Zeugma is a Greek word which generically means 'to join' (the city is named for a pontoon bridge which links the land across the nearby Euphrates river). Today, 'zeugma' is used to describe a word which does double-duty in a sentence by affecting two subjects at once, usually with different definitions of that same word. For example, "The tiles and the archeologists were both floored by these ancient artisans."

One place that you might consider skipping is Hollywood. Oh, we might all think it’s full of glitz and glam, but the reality is nothing like what we see in the movies. It’s important to have a chat with some globe-trekking pals or locals to see whether a particular popular location lives up to the hype. The juice isn’t always worth the squeeze.

"There’s one popular, supposedly must-see attraction that’s way overhyped in Los Angeles, and that’s Hollywood. Everyone has heard of it and everyone wants to see it, but once you arrive in the real Hollywood, you’re sure to be disappointed," entertainment expert Mike Sington, from Los Angeles, shared with Bored Panda recently.

"It’s very crowded, and there’s hardly anything to see except the stars in the sidewalk. Once you do that, and you have to dodge the crowds to even navigate the sidewalks, that’s it. I’d suggest passing on Hollywood itself, and taking one of the professionally run studio tours all the major movie studios offer," he said that Hollywood isn’t as great as some tourists might expect.

"Because the city is often pictured in the movies and on television as some glamorous place, that’s often all that visitors are expecting. Sure, Los Angeles is beautiful and diverse, and the weather is spectacular, but keep in mind it’s a very big city, so it has all the problems and urban sprawl of most big cities," Mike shared.

The Terracotta Army is supposed to be even way larger than what is unearthed by now. The reason why they are left buried is that they aren't just plain terracotta, they are painted. The paint is so old though that it fades pretty quickly when it comes into contact with oxygen and/or UV light, so they keep them sealed until the preservation techniques have improved.
