10 Epic Places To Get Your Stargaze On

12 April 2016

Oh brilliant stelliferous sky how you make our hearts weep. Too much? Most of us don't get excited about stars, constellations and the like. Maybe that's because we've spent too much of our lives looking up into the same night sky dulled by light pollution from homes and skyscrapers.

Get out and venture to some of the world's more remote places where the night skies rival the majesty of the Sistine Chapel's ceiling. We guarantee you'll lose time admiring these natural canvasses.

Don't believe us? Take a look at what you're missing.

I love the kind of travelling that is one part strategic planning and two parts spontaneous adventure. Whether I'm exploring my local city or a small town in the middle of nowhere, I'm always hoping to find something no one else has discovered.
