My morning began with following a trail around the world (virtual, of course) on the world's best of something according to Travel and Leisure magazine.
Did you know that Malaysia's Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) made it to T and L's list of World's Most Beautiful Airports? When I was clicking down the list, I was half hoping that KLIA would make the cut. Never mind it came in last on the list but hey, it made the list!
A few others who made the list include Kansai International Airport, Osaka; Hong Kong's Chek Lap Kok Airport; Marrakech Menara Airport, Morocco; Incheon International Airport, South Korea; and TWA Terminal, John F. Kennedy Airport, New York City. Commenters are asking why is Singapore's Changi Airport not included.

Also visited the World's Most Beautiful Buildings, one of which is this one, Tiger's Nest Monastery in Bhutan which is precariously situated on a rock outcropping some 2,600 feet above the Paro Valley (which is itself about 7,000 feet above sea level). Paro Taktsang — or the Tiger’s Nest Monastery — is a breathtaking sight dating from 1692.
Among other World's Most Beautiful Buildings is this box of light, Christian Dior Store, Omotesando, Tokyo
..and the Burj Al Arab, but of course - a 60-story sail-shaped hotel, which sits on its own private island. Awe-inspiring!
The Chrysler Building, New York City, is another on the list.
I even visited the World's Strangest Places - Man-made or otherwise.
How's this for a strange place, the Blood Falls in Antarctica.
Eye of the Sahara, Mauritania
The Boneyard, Arizona
