Glass Beach - The Dump You'll Want to Visit. Before you say anything about the content of this article, I hate people who litter. I’ll judge you if I think you’re too lazy to recycle. I hate pollution and the death of our fragile ecosystems and all the rest.

It’s like a little Inuksuk… I’ve been trolling around for lesser known landscapes to road trip to and explore, and stumbled across this chunk of multicoloured west coast paradise. These days, Glass Beach is a protected part of MacKerricher State Park, but in 1949, it was the site of an unrestricted dump. Eventually, California realized that dumping automobiles, appliances, toxic substances and razor sharp shards of glass into the water was probably a bad idea, and looked elsewhere for a dumping site.

There are certain destinations we all dream of traveling to one day: Paris, Rome, Bangkok, Rio de Janeiro, Jerusalem, Tokyo, New York City, Buenos Aires, Beijing, Stockholm. They’re magical cities with cultures and histories that have shaped the dynamic fabric of our globalized world.

Travel snobs will tell you these places are so inundated with tourists that you won’t really enjoy visiting them. These individuals have lost sight of how privileged they are to travel in the first place. Regardless of how crowded these places may be, there’s nothing quite like staring up at the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, emerging from the NYC subway for the first time and staring down at the streets of Paris from the top of the Eiffel Tower. In truth, it’s almost impossible to visit anywhere these days that’s completely untouched by tourism. Locations once considered remote are now typically accessible by plane, car or train.

Vik Iceland - Avenly Lane. After taking a red eye flight from Orlando to Iceland we arrived around 5am. We rented a car and headed straight for Vik. (3 hour drive from Reykjavik) Just on our first day from Reykjavik to Vik, we saw Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss waterfalls (and many more from the road… and many more in the days to come). The views were truly unlike anything I had ever seen before. I don’t know what I expected Iceland to be like, but it was so much better. We arrived in the small village of Vík around sunrise. Vik is Iceland’s southernmost village and faces the open Atlantic Ocean, framed by a long black volcanic sand beach. Next we moved on to the black sand beach which had been at the top of our list. In one short day, I experienced so many sights and places for the first time.
