It is fortunate that my family lives on a great continent - Africa.  Once in a while I have the opportunity to go and visit - not nearly often enough though.  When I do go to South Africa I always make the time to get to a part of unspoiled nature.  There is little that leaves one in such awe as to observe the wonders of the wild. 

If you have never had the opportunity you should make it a priority.  No need to travel to another continent though, some of the most remarkable natural wonders are right here on the North American continent.  But do not miss the chance to see the rest of the planet.
