The Waterfalls of the World

I like waterfalls, if you’re close enough it’s like an expensive spa treatment. But mostly I like the sound, the fury, the amazing beauty and the spritzing!

When I was quite young my folks took us to Niagara Falls and made sure we saw them from both New York and Ontario. What I remember about them are the stories of the crazy people who attempted to go over them in a wooden barrel and the first one to succeed was a woman!

Since then I’ve visited some of the most famous in the World for one reason or another. Maybe it is the tallest or the most water or the widest or an incredible view….I don’t exactly have a list of all those I’m missing but I’ve enjoyed Gullfoss in Iceland, Murchison Falls in Uganda, Havasu Falls in Arizona, Yosemite Falls in California, Kaieteur Falls in Guyana, Victoria Falls in both Zimbabwe and Zambia, and finally Iguazu Falls on the Brazil side. On hikes and road trips through other countries I’ve also watched the water fall in South Africa, New Zealand and Croatia. However, the one that is often ranked number one is Angel Falls in Venezuela and I’ve not been there YET!
