    I quite like this website – they’ve got a Top 13 National Parks (13? Yes, a bit strange, but the website explains all)
    Since volcanoes are topical at the moment, thought I’d share this one with you too
    At nearly 6km high, Cotopaxi is one of the world’s highest active volcanoes. In 1975 the snow suddenly disappeared….only a matter of time before it blows I think. The brave enough can go on 1-8 day trekking/horse riding adventures through Ecuador’s volcano land. Fabulous.

    I think we often forget about the breathtaking natural attractions we have right in our own country. Thanks for the reminder!
