In this day and age it is getting increasingly hard to remain static for more than a few seconds, unless I have really an exceptional reason to stay in one place, I’m ON THE GO. Rarely I have arrived at a place without being sure what should i anticipate, only to be surprised with some astonishing views. When this happens, I turn off my phone, i sit still and appreciate the moment; okay, maybe several moments.

Here are ten of the most astounding look-outs that will surly take your breath away:
