The ‘World Beauties and Wonders’ Facebook page, created by Turkey-based Anatolian Leo, is an incredibly popular project that highlights some of the gorgeous views that you’re bound to come across in your travels. We’re featuring some of the project’s best pics to share with all of you today, Pandas.

Bored Panda got in touch with Patrick McGranaghan, a surveyor from Colorado and a huge fan of geography, to have a chat about traveling abroad. He shared some of his exciting experiences from a recent trip and was kind enough to reveal some of his travel hacks, too. Check out our exclusive interview with Patrick below, Pandas.
Patrick, who works as a surveyor in Colorado, recently went on a trip to Panama. He visited the Central American country this April to see the canal there.
“For most people, it’s probably just like any other river or boat ride, but for me, it was very enjoyable as I am fascinated by engineering projects. It took about 8 hours to go through the canal from end to end,” he shared his experience with Bored Panda.
“Along the way, there are many ships passing from countries all over the world,” Patrick revealed to us that it was a wonderful adventure.
Bored Panda also asked Patrick to share some of his traveling do’s and don’ts with our readers. “I think the most important thing is to remember to have fun. No trip is ever going to be 100% perfect,” he said that it’s vital not to stress about every tiny detail being ‘perfect.’
“There will be times where weather goes bad, places are closed, it’s difficult to find good food, etc. This is all part of the experience. Enjoy your time because you’ll miss it when you’re back home,” Patrick shared.
“Don’t forget to have backup plans. Unexpected interruptions happen and you just have to adapt.”
The ‘World Beauties and Wonders’ project has over 423k followers on Facebook and a further 26.8k fans on Instagram. Meanwhile, the associated YouTube channel has racked up nearly 121k views.
The social media project is all about showing off the great things that you might come across on your journeys, and it also shines the spotlight on the seriously impressive legacy left behind by ancient civilizations. Honestly, we’re itching to pack our bags, put on a pair of comfy sneakers, and rush off to absorb some culture. It’s a feast for the eyes and the soul.
We’re huge fans of travel and new experiences here at Bored Panda. However, at the same time, it’s important not to get over-hyped before your trip. Keeping realistic expectations of what you’ll likely experience will help you stay satisfied with your adventure, overall. Very recently, we spoke to one of the moderators helping run the multi-million-member r/travel subreddit.
They stressed that keeping our expectations low or having none of them at all will improve the trip, no matter what it is. Something else that can help you enjoy yourself more is putting in the effort and doing some more in-depth research about where you’re going, the history of the place, and the local culture and customs.
“I think the more popular a place is, the more easily it is to become overhyped and a letdown,” the moderator from r/travel stressed that some travelers fall prey to Paris Syndrome. That’s when your expectations aren’t met and you’re left culture-shocked and disappointed.
“For many people, learning the local culture, on a surface level or maybe more makes for a fun trip, for others sitting at an all-inclusive resort at the beach is ideal. How you enjoy your vacation is up to you. Thankfully, we’re not all identical and boring as a result,” they explained that everyone travels for a different mix of reasons. Nobody should feel pressured to enjoy themselves a certain way. Travel is freedom.
One place that you might consider skipping is Hollywood. Oh, we might all think it’s full of glitz and glam, but the reality is nothing like what we see in the movies. It’s important to have a chat with some globe-trekking pals or locals to see whether a particular popular location lives up to the hype. The juice isn’t always worth the squeeze.
“There’s one popular, supposedly must-see attraction that’s way overhyped in Los Angeles, and that’s Hollywood. Everyone has heard of it and everyone wants to see it, but once you arrive in the real Hollywood, you’re sure to be disappointed,” entertainment expert Mike Sington, from Los Angeles, shared with Bored Panda recently.
“It’s very crowded, and there’s hardly anything to see except the stars in the sidewalk. Once you do that, and you have to dodge the crowds to even navigate the sidewalks, that’s it. I’d suggest passing on Hollywood itself, and taking one of the professionally run studio tours all the major movie studios offer,” he said that Hollywood isn’t as great as some tourists might expect.
“Because the city is often pictured in the movies and on television as some glamorous place, that’s often all that visitors are expecting. Sure, Los Angeles is beautiful and diverse, and the weather is spectacular, but keep in mind it’s a very big city, so it has all the problems and urban sprawl of most big cities,” Mike shared.
“As a longtime resident of Los Angeles, I’m very familiar with what’s worth seeing, and what’s not. Here’s my personal list of the actual ‘must-see’ places for a first-time visitor:
Griffith Observatory and Griffith ParkGetty Center Runyon CanyonSanta Monica BeachThe GroveLos Angeles County Museum of ArtThe BroadUniversal StudiosWalt Disney Concert HallAcademy Museum of Motion Pictures Beverly HillsMulholland Drive,” Mike shared some of the must-see locations that are definitely worth a visit.
