Great Barrier Reef Top NY Times Ratings!

Australia & New Zealand - boards.cruisecritic.com
For those seeking interesting and different locations, this weekend's New York Times Travel Section will have this headline: "52 Places to Go in 2017" with many different ideas for adventures to be considered for the future.

Here is one story option and highlight of special interest to us: "Great Barrier Reef, Australia: A natural wonder is imperiled, but tourists can help. Increased sea temperatures, caused by climate change, El Niño and other factors, have caused extensive coral bleaching, mostly in the northern sections of Australia?s 1,430-mile long Great Barrier Reef. The world?s largest living organism ? a mosaic of some 2,900 coral reefs and 900 islands ? faces serious threats but conservation efforts are bearing fruit, and visitors can play a role in saving the reef. A turtle rehabilitation center on Fitzroy Island welcomes volunteers, as does the Lizard Island Research Station, and a host of other citizen science groups. And new or recently refurbished resorts on Hayman, Orpheus, Pumpkin and Lizard Islands offer idyllic places to explore this fragile, extraordinary natural wonder." Yes, we super loved our time here and it is great to see this spectacular area getting the attention and praise it deserves.

Among other great places highlighted are: Botswana, Madagascar, Stockholm, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Thailand, Sedona, Athens, Madrid, the Lofoten Island of Norway and Budapest. Some of these locations we have super enjoyed visiting, but there are lots more wonderful places meriting future attention. It's great doing this exploring and considering other interesting locations for the future. Love reading these various stories about nice options to consider!!
