If you’re the curious type and you’ve never visited Atlas Obscura, you’re missing a great opportunity to discover many amazing places and sites throughout the world.

Atlas Obscura is “the definitive guide to the world’s wondrous and curious places.” It’s a collaborative project, and looks to worldwide explorers to share the many amazing or hidden nooks and crannies around the globe. It’s a great site.

One of my favorite places – found on a trip to the American Southwest – is Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks in New Mexico shown above.

Here’s a small sampling of the places that I would like to visit:

Valle dei Mulini

Sorrento, Italy / “Valley of Mills” is a grouping of modern ruins nestled at the bottom of a deep Italian crevasse.
