What would I not do to go back a few years! Those days of longing And the evenings ripe with hope The words that we spoke Dripped with love.

5 places that took my breath away

What I look for and enjoy the most about traveling is nature. I love nature, and I love being in nature. Mountains, greenery and some form of water is to me often a slice of paradise.

Sometimes the lanscapes I see are so impressive and beautiful that they literally take my breath away. The air from my lungs leave me and I just stand there in awe for a while before I can start breathing again when the chock has settled.

 

Here is a list of 5 places and sceneries that did just that – take my breath away.

 

 

1. Lausanne, Switzerland

I arrived by train from Genève in the evening. As my couchsurfing hosts wouldn’t be home for another hour, I went down to the harbor and got there just as the sun was starting to set. When I got down to the harbor, I walked left and when my eyes hit the mountains softened with pink light, my air left me and I froze. This is the first moment I can remember where looking upon a landscape affected me that strongly.

2. Lake Bohinj, Slovenia

A lot of people have heard about the magical lake Bled in Slovenia, the one with a church on a tiny island in the middle of the lake. I’d heard there was another lake even more beautiful close by. Impossible I thought, after arriving at lake Bled in early morning with mystical mist floating above the surface.

And then I got there.

I think this might actually be THE most beautiful place I’ve even been to. This is my exact definition of paradise. Mountains, greenery and a lake. It’s hard to explain how happy and filled with this indescribable feeling when I visit places like the ones on this list. No words can do them justice.

3. Sv. Mihovil, Ugljan, Croatia

I visited Zadar in early May in 2014, when the parks known for their beauty, Plitvice and Krka were both flooded. There went my plans for the trip I thought. Then a girl who was one of the owners at my hostel told me I could take a boat out to an island just outside Zadar, called the Olive Island or Ugjlan, where I could rent a bike and ride up to an old abandoned fortress – Sv. Mihovil.

Not knowing what to expect and an unexpected amount of free time on my hands, I did just that.

First of all – the biking was tough! It took me an hour of constant uphill biking before I got there, and it was unbelievably hot that day as well.

But it was worth every single drop of sweat.

The fortress was covered with flowers and had a 360 degree view of the archipelago – and I was the only one up there! I still have a hard time believing how beautiful it was.

4. Doubtful Sound, New Zealand

The lesser known and less crowded cousin to Milford sound in southern New Zealand took me by surprise. I was on a tour so I hadn’t researched the places I was going to too well. At first sight it, as the title reveals, took my breath away.

And to make that place even more special, when we went out kayaking a flock of dolphins swam and jumped just a few meters away from us.

5. Sunrise over lake Atitlán, Guatemala

A friend and I were staying with a local family in San Juan, and got up at 2.30 one morning and together with a third friend and a guide with his dog took us hiking up the mountain La Nariz de Indio – the Indian Nose.

This is without a doubt the steepest hike I’ve ever done, and doing it in complete darkness with nothing but a pen light guiding my feet, it was a challenge to say the least.

We got up to the top a little too early, so we sat waiting for quite a while – so if you do this – bring warm clothes with you!!

Eventually the sky behind the mountains and volcanos were filled with amazing colors. My eyes were trying to take it all in but my heart could not get enough of this beautiful sight.

Take My Breath Away

it takes my breath away

Take My Breath Away by Berlin is featured in Prom-asaurus, the nineteenth episode of Season Three. It is the first duet sung by Quinn and Santana and was performed at the prom as the first dance for the new Prom King and Prom Queen, Finn and Rachel. Quinn surprises everyone by standing up from her wheelchair during the performance. It is the final song in the episode.

Quinn:
Watching every motion
In my foolish lover's game
On this endless ocean,
Finally, lovers know no shame

Santana:
Turning and returning
To some secret place inside
Watching in slow motion,
As you turn around and say

Quinn and Santana:
Take my breath away
Take my breath away

Quinn with Santana:
Watching I keep waiting
Still anticipating love
Never hesitating
To become the fated ones

Santana with Quinn:
Turning and returning
To some secret place to cry
Watching in slow motion,
As you turn to me and say

Santana:
My love

Quinn and Santana:
Take my breath away

Santana:
Through the hourglass, I saw you
In time you slipped away
When the mirror crashed, I called you
And turned to hear you say

Quinn:
If only for today,
I am unafraid

Quinn and Santana:
Take my breath away
Take my breath away

Quinn with Santana:
Watching every motion
In this foolish lover's game
Haunted by the notion
Somewhere there's a love in flames

Santana with Quinn:
Turning and returning
To some secret place inside
Watching in slow motion
As you turn my way

Santana:
And say

Quinn and Santana:
Take my breath away (Quinn: My love)
Take my breath away (Santana: My love)
Take my breath away, ohh... (Santana: Away)
Take my breath away (Santana: My love)
Take my breath away

"You Take My Breath Away" lyrics

Queen Lyrics

"You Take My Breath Away"

Look into my eyes and you'll see
I'm the only one
You've captured my love
Stolen my heart
Changed my life
Every time you make a move
You destroy my mind
And the way you touch
I lose control and shiver deep inside
You take my breath away

You can reduce me to tears
With a single sigh
Every breath that you take
Any sound that you make
Is a whisper in my ear
I could give up all my life for just one kiss
I would surely die
If you dismiss me from your love
You take my breath away

So please don't go
Don't leave me here all by myself
I get ever so lonely from time to time
I will find you
Anywhere you go, I'll be right behind you
Right until the ends of the earth
I'll get no sleep till I find you to tell you
That you just take my breath
Away

I will find you
Right until the ends of the earth
I'll get no sleep til I find you
To tell you when I've found you
I love you

Writer(s): MERCURY FREDERICK, MERCURY FREDERICK

This song was based on the Japanese pentatonic scale.

"You Take My Breath Away" was supposedly written about Mary Austin. Freddie Mercury lived with her for six years, but they split up in 1980 when Mercury decided he preferred male partners. Austin and Mercury remained friends until his death.

Freddie Mercury said in an interview on Capital Radio, "This one I did myself. I multi-tracked myself. So, the others weren't used on this for the voices. I played piano and, basically, I don't know how we managed to stay this simple—you know—with all our over-dubs and things. People seem to think that we're over-complexed, and it's not true. It depends on the individual track really: if it needs it - we do it. So this is pretty sparse actually by Queen and our standards."

This song was live performed by Freddie Mercury at a Hyde Park concert before recording it.

You Take My Breath Away

Look into my eyes and you'll see
I'm the only one
You've captured my love
Stolen my heart
Changed my life
Every time you make a move
You destroy my mind
And the way you touch
I lose control and shiver deep inside
You take my breath away

You can reduce me to tears
With a single sigh
Every breath that you take -
Any sound that you make
Is a whisper in my ear
I could give up all my life for just one kiss
I would surely die
If you dismiss me from your love
You take my breath away

So please don't go
Don't leave me here all by myself
I get ever so lonely from time to time
I will find you
Anywhere you go, I'll be right behind you
Right until the ends of the earth
I'll get no sleep till I find you to tell you
That you just take my breath
away

I will find you...etc
I'll get no sleep til I find you to
tell you when I've found you -
I love you
