When I wrote about the top 10 train rides last week, a reader commented how beautiful the photo of Norway was (no, it wasn't mine.) Funny, then, to find on Twitter a link to the 10 highest waterfalls.
Because I started scrolling through and whaddaya know? Surprise, surprise, five out of the 10 highest waterfalls are in Norway.
It seems with all these travel lists I post, I end up having been to one or two places but no more. I'm at least glad I experience that many of the 10 best this and that.
The highest waterfall in the world, according to the site, is Angel Falls in Venezuela. Named for a guy who, oops, nose-dived into them, and survived, as opposed to something to do with the heavens.
The sad story for me about Angel Falls is that I was traveling through Venezuela with a boyfriend years ago and we couldn't fit in everything we wanted to do. The Angel Falls trip would have taken several days and we just didn't have the time.
Hm, maybe I should have gone solo...and set the proper priorities! But that's water under the bridge now. Lots and lots of water.
