Unless you\x26rsquo;ve visited New York City on four specific days of the year, this Instagram favorite will remain elusive. For two days in May and two days in July, the Sun sets between skyscrapers on east-west streets, creating a perfectly composed sunset photo. The ultimate cause is the 23.5-degree tilt of the Earth\x26rsquo;s axis in relation to its orbital path around the Sun, which makes sunrise and sunset points appear to slide back and forth across the horizon. But Manhattanhenge itself is unique because the city\x26rsquo;s grid pattern was designed to exactly match the cardinal points, just as Stonehenge in England was built to align with the rising Sun at the summer solstice.\x3c/p\x3e\x3cp\x3eSource: Travel+Leisure\x3c/p\x3e\x3cp\x3e\x3cb\x3eThe Sea of Stars, The Maldives\x3c/b\x3e\x3c/p\x3e\x3cfigure data-orig-width=\x221600\x22 data-orig-height=\x221000\x22 data-orig-src=\x22https://s1.yimg.com/os/en-US/homerun/travel.travelleisure.com/af84306895eb39fe7426ff6cc8b1f4d8\x22 class=\x22tmblr-full\x22\x3e\x3cimg src=\x22https://78.media.tumblr.com/8d4e13473bdaf4f80d6632726f3ebdba/tumblr_inline_oxn80rnk3s1u44cst_500.jpg\x22 data-orig-width=\x221600\x22 data-orig-height=\x221000\x22 data-orig-src=\x22https://s1.yimg.com/os/en-US/homerun/travel.travelleisure.com/af84306895eb39fe7426ff6cc8b1f4d8\x22 width=\x22500\x22 height=\x22312\x22\x3e\x3c/figure\x3e\x3cp\x3eYou probably saw it in Ang Lee\x26rsquo;s fantastical Life Of Pi movie, but blue bioluminescence is real. Some phytoplankton and algae living in the oceans produce blue light when they\x26rsquo;re disturbed by tides or passing boats, and when they do, it\x26rsquo;s spectacular. This marine bioluminescence \x26mdash; often called the Sea of Stars \x26mdash; is visible in many places around the world. Perhaps the most famous is Vaadhoo Island in the Raa Atoll in The Maldives, from where it\x26rsquo;s easiest to see either side of a New Moon. Other destinations where bioluminescence can sometimes be seen include Puerto Rico\x26rsquo;s Mosquito Bay, Leucadia north of San Diego, and Florida\x26rsquo;s Navarre Beach.\x3c/p\x3e\x3cp\x3eSource: Travel+Leisure\x3c/p\x3e\x3cp\x3e\x3cb\x3eThe Fire Falls, Yosemite National Park, California\x3c/b\x3e\x3c/p\x3e\x3cfigure data-orig-width=\x221600\x22 data-orig-height=\x221000\x22 data-orig-src=\x22https://s1.yimg.com/os/en-US/homerun/travel.travelleisure.com/a81ec8b690646af4871281be6c2b1489\x22 class=\x22tmblr-full\x22\x3e\x3cimg src=\x22https://78.media.tumblr.com/221bad828a0f1fd05ed61e7f85c00f22/tumblr_inline_oxn80szjWv1u44cst_500.jpg\x22 data-orig-width=\x221600\x22 data-orig-height=\x221000\x22 data-orig-src=\x22https://s1.yimg.com/os/en-US/homerun/travel.travelleisure.com/a81ec8b690646af4871281be6c2b1489\x22 width=\x22500\x22 height=\x22312\x22\x3e\x3c/figure\x3e\x3cp\x3eOn the eastern side of El Capitan is a waterfall, Horsetail Falls, that occasionally glows bright yellow, orange and red.

Their New Year\x26rsquo;s party was a wild mix of cross-dressing, kava swilling, war dances, and delicious local food. One of the most memorable ways to ring in the New Year I can think of. The beach itself is more picturesque than it is good for swimming. White sand and clear water, sure, but a bit too rocky and coral strewn for genuine frolicking. The island itself is just likely. Far enough from the backpacker crowds of the Yasawas to feel genuinely quiet, but with a fun crowd and awesome staff about to ensure you\x26rsquo;re not bored.

The water is shallow, warm and milky and the backdrop of Mount Otemanu on every frame just makes it a dreamy place.

Then you\x26rsquo;re in luck! Here are 7 globetrotting professions that could let you satisfy your wanderlusting dreams.\x26nbsp;\x3c/p\x3e\x3cp\x3e\x3cb\x3eSocial Media Managers\x3c/b\x3e\x3c/p\x3e\x3cp\x3eThe good thing about being a digital nomad is having the freedom to travel and work anywhere in the world. And in this new age, you\x26rsquo;ll have social media to thank, as social media platforms require almost round-the-clock monitoring, and thus, employees are not confined to their desks. All you need is a phone, laptop and access to the internet to be able to earn a living.\x26nbsp;\x0a\x0a\x3c/p\x3e\x3cp\x3e\x3cb\x3eWeb/Graphic Designers\x26nbsp;\x3c/b\x3e\x3c/p\x3e\x3cp\x3eFrom typography to motion graphics, there\x26rsquo;s always a market for designers and illustrators overseas. Many companies offer freelance work to anyone skilled enough to take on a project. If you\x26rsquo;ve got a knack for the artistic and an eye for design, there\x26rsquo;s a good chance you can let your creative talents fund your travels.\x26nbsp;\x3c/p\x3e\x3cp\x3e\x3cb\x3eFloor Staffs\x3c/b\x3e\x3c/p\x3e\x3cp\x3eAnother way to find a job overseas is to check the local bars and coffee shops for any available vacancies. You\x26rsquo;re almost always guaranteed a position (especially during seasonal periods) as roles in food and drinks establishments are always in high demand. Having some past working experience would help, but it is by no means necessary!\x26nbsp;\x3c/p\x3e\x3cp\x3e\x3cb\x3eTeacher/Instructor\x3c/b\x3e\x3c/p\x3e\x3cp\x3eIt\x26rsquo;s surprising how highly sought after professional English teachers are in the world. But simply being a native English speaker isn\x26rsquo;t enough. A degree and a TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) certification is often a perquisite before embarking on an educational journey around the world.\x26nbsp;\x3c/p\x3e\x3cp\x3eAlternatively, if you have a niche skill like yoga, surfing, scuba diving, or anything like that, why not share your knowledge of the subject while getting paid doing it? Picture spending your days floating above world renowned dive sites, conducting yoga classes atop a secluded mountain shala, or surfing the waves along a beautiful tropical island. The opportunities are endless.\x26nbsp;\x3c/p\x3e\x3cp\x3e\x3cb\x3eTravel Blogger/Writer\x26nbsp;\x3c/b\x3e\x3c/p\x3e\x3cp\x3eGetting paid to write about travel is the dream job every wayfarer wishes they could have. These days anyone with a flair for writing and adventure can start their own blog. But why narrow it down to just your travel experiences? Writing travel guides, food reviews and suggesting holiday itineraries for established travel sites or blog are a great way to garner online readership.\x3c/p\x3e\x3cp\x3e\x3cb\x3eBusker / Performer\x26nbsp;\x3c/b\x3e\x3c/p\x3e\x3cp\x3eGot a special skill or talent to showcase? Flaunt it on the streets for a chance to earn some extra cash! Pick a busy intersection, place a hat on the ground and brighten up someone\x26rsquo;s day with an act or two. Whether it\x26rsquo;s painting, juggling, acrobatics or even a magic show, you\x26rsquo;ll be surprised how much people will pay to be entertained.\x26nbsp;\x3c/p\x3e\x3cp\x3e\x3cb\x3ePhotographer\x26nbsp;\x3c/b\x3e\x3c/p\x3e\x3cp\x3eIf you\x26rsquo;ve ever wanted to travel the world with your camera, now\x26rsquo;s your chance. It takes hours of practice to perfect the craft, but luck and resourcefulness to capture the perfect moment. If you think you have what it takes to take on this incredible role, then grab your camera and start snapping away! Not only can your images be sold on stock photo sites, you might even see your image on the cover of National Geographic one day!\x0a\x3c/p\x3e’
