Since you’re in the mood to be a world traveler, and you’ve just found out about checking your credit score before buying a car, why not explore the oddities and strange locations the lands have to offer? We’re going to fly you through some strange places in the world and how to get there.

Giant’s Causeway

This abnormal landmark is a result of ancient volcanic eruptions. Off the northern coast of Ireland, you’ll find columns of cylindrical stones, which molded into interesting formations when being crafted by mother nature. You can even find some as tall as 39 feet!

You will have to update your passport if you want to travel to Giant’s Causeway. These formations are in Northern Ireland, which will require you to take an airplane across the great Atlantic.

The Catacombs of Paris

A popular destination for those who crave something scary. The Catacombs of Paris are notorious for their haunted walls. The Catacombs consist of a deep network of tunnels, caves, and tombs, which was created in the late 18th century to combat the lack of cemetery space around Paris, France.

The majority of the Catacombs are off limits, but you can take professional tours through the safer areas of the tunnels. You’ll have to extend your Western European adventure, because you must fly into Paris if you want to get a glimpse of this monstrosity of a burial ground.

Cat Island

Cat lovers rejoice! You finally have an island paradise waiting for you off the coast of Japan. Tashirojima, also known as “Cat Island,” is named after its overwhelming population of stray cats. This is a purr-fect destination for the cat enthusiast.

If you want to visit this furry island, then hop on a plane to Japan and follow it up with a short boat ride. Don’t forget to bring your own catnip and tuna!

Salar de Uyuni

You’ve seen the pictures circling the internet at some point. Salar de Uyuni is the world’s largest salt flat, which is roughly 4,000 square miles. During the rainy season, the salt flat projects a perfect reflection of the world around you. It reflects so well, it’s like standing on one giant mirror.

During the dry season, you can drive through the flat, white landscapes as if it’s one giant RC circuit. But, we don’t recommend that. Salar de Uyuni is in Southwest Bolivia. Also, pack some hiking gear with your plane ticket, because the world’s largest salt flat is in the crest of the Andes Mountains.

Mendenhall Ice Caves

Burrowing through the Mendenhall Glacier, the Ice Caves are a recreational area that are ready to be explored and admired by any world traveler. You can explore the insides of a glacier that’s also close to home. Well, it’s in the same country at least.

You can finally show off the skills you learned in your NYS defensive driving course by packing your car and taking a road trip to the southern tip of Alaska. Your Instagram is just waiting to be updated with awesome pictures of glaciers!

Redwood National Forest

The Redwood National Forest is a series of nature reservations and parks. What makes these forests so spectacular are the sheer size and girth of the trees. Border lining gargantuan size, these trees are a staple of the northern coast of California.

If you’re checking out Alaskan glaciers, then take a trip down south to visit the Redwood National Forest. It’s just a small detour from New York, right?

The Sea of Stars

This nearly fantasy like world is perfect for any romantic getaway. The reason being, the beach become illuminous at night. Thanks to the bioluminescent qualities of the microorganisms that populate the beach, they light up whenever they get irritated. Such as when waves crash against the beach or when you walk through the sand.

This beach can be found in Vaadhoo Island, Maldives. This small island natation is in the Indian Ocean and has a population of roughly 500,000 people. You may have to fly 24 hours to get there, but it’s a beach that glows in the dark! That’s worth one entire day in a plan!

Wherever you decide to go, just remember the important lessons in your NYS defensive driving course. That way, whether you’re in Paris or a small island nation, you can say you learned your impressive driving skills from Myimprov.com.
