Trav­el­ling this Valen­tine’s Day? Fol­low the heart around the globe

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - City -

From Europe to the Pa­cific, there are thou­sands of places on Earth to say “I love you.” How­ever, there are only a lim­ited num­ber of des­ti­na­tions where the land­scape pro­vides a nat­u­ral set­ting to talk about love. The Heart of Voh, New

Cale­do­nia: The nat­u­ral heart shape which is vis­i­ble in a man­grove swamp in the North Prov­ince of New Cale­do­nia was made fa­mous by French pho­tog­ra­pher Yann Arthus-Bertrand when he used it on the cover of one of his books. Trav­ellers who want to take their own pic­tures can climb 400 me­ters to a van­tage point on nearby Mount Kathé­païk. But for the best view of the “Heart”, take a ride in one of the ul­tra-light air­craft that fly over the spot. An­te­lope Canyon, United

States: Trekkers in Ari­zona rarely pass up the op­por­tu­nity for a visit to the Navajo Na­tion re­serve, which is home to the ma­jor va­ca­tion des­ti­na­tion Lake Pow­ell. In Lower An­te­lope Canyon vis­i­tors will be greeted with the vista of the sun­light shin­ing through a per­fectly heartshaped aper­ture.

Corfu, Greece: To find your place in yet another nat­u­ral heart, head to the Greek is­land of Corfu. On the western side of the is­land in­trepid trav­ellers may be re­warded with a view of this heart-shaped la­goon, which is not eas­ily seen from the ground. Heart Reef in Queens­land, Aus­tralia: Trav­ellers who visit the Whit­sun­day Is­lands on snor­kel­ing trips usu­ally take time for an ae­rial tour of the Great Bar­rier Reef which of­fers an op­por­tu­nity to take pic­tures of the area’s fa­mous coral heart. Flights take off from the air­port on Hamil­ton Is­land, which is also the start­ing point for ferry or light air­craft trips to Air­lie Beach, and the rest of the is­lands.

FROM GREECE TO AUS­TRALIA, THERE ARE VAR­I­OUS PLACES IN THE WORLD WHERE THE HEART SHAPE IS FORMED NAT­U­RALLY
