[dropcap]S[/dropcap]ometimes we go over the river for water when we set our travel destinations. The Inca ruins of Peru may be well worth seeing, and who wouldn’t want to see Namibia’s Skeleton Coast (I’ve been to both – they are well worth visiting).

But, as argues, there are good opportunities closer than that. At least if you live in the UK, or perhaps in northern France or the Nordics. One such is the Jurassic Coast of Dorset, A Luxury Travel Blog explains:

Located only three hours from London, the Jurassic Coast is a stunning stretch of rugged cliffs and charming coves covering 96 miles of coastline and 180 million years of geological history. The name Jurassic Coast is actually rather misleading; just as the film Jurassic Park featured dinosaurs from all three periods of the Mesozoic Era, this famous portion of coastline is home to rocks and fossils from the Triassic and Cretaceous periods as well as the Jurassic.

If you go to Dorset’s Jurassic Coast, there is little risk of you feeling lonely. The blog goes on explaining that the coast’s main attraction, Lulworth Cove, “attracts over half a million visitors each year, each one eager to sample the breath-taking delights of this unique attraction.”
