Traveling to some of the world’s most recognized landmarks can truly be the highlight of one’s life. If you’ve ever been to Yellowstone, then you know the sense of awe that you experience with the breathtaking views and scenery. If you’ve ever stared in wonder at the stones that make up Yosemite National Park, you understand the magnitude of creation and your finite existence in comparison. It’s experiences like these that remind us we’re alive – often confronted with the timelessness of these monuments knowing that perhaps millions of people for thousands of years have seen basically the exact same wonder. Knowing this gives us a sense of being connected to the past as well as confronted with our mortality in a non-morbid way but in a truly existential approach. Perhaps you’ve had similar experiences in other parts of the world where their history is much older than here in the US. The Blarney Castle, home of the Blarney Stone (legendary for its powers to give anyone who kisses it the gift of eloquent gab), which is over 600 years old. Beholding something man-made yet timeless can give an equally stunning sense of awe.
