Located 900 km (560 mi) west of continental Ecuador, the Galápagos Islands (Islas Galápagos) contributed to the inception of Charles Darwin's theory of evolution by natural selection.

#3 – Svalbard Islands, NORWAY

June 20, 2015

If you ever fancied being truly on top of the world but just can't make it all the way to the North Pole, then settle for Svalbard. These Norwegian islands are just a stone throw away from the North Pole and a great place to see polar bears roaming. Mid winter offers surreal darkness while the fringes of winter showcases the stunning snow and ice covered landscapes packed with adventure, such as polar bear spotting by dog sled or snow mobile.

June 8, 2015

We are all looking for paradise on earth. I thought I found it in Thailand. Then I thought I found it in the Philippines.

But, don't take the bus or train with the fat ladies and the bald uncles - take the long long hike (2-3 days) via the ancient Inka Trail to arrive high above the Machu Picchu riuns at sunrise. Its absolutely amazing and a hike you will never ever forget. [MORE...]
