  • The Most Scary Bridges in the World
    The Most Scary Bridges in the World
    Why we create Bridges? What is their need? Hey what kind of things I am asking you guys? All of us know that Bridges help people commute from one place to another. As we say, “necessity is the mother of invention”. So the bridges are carved out of necessity. But in some parts of the world, this necessity has created such scary bridges that it is very dreadful to look at them forget to take a walk along them. But still many people put their lives on risk and cross them on daily basis. When you will have a look at those bridges or just read about the type of material they are made off, that would be enough to give a running chill through your spine.

  • 10 places to indulge your wild side
    10 places to indulge your wild side
    One of the newest trends manifesting itself in world travel is that of adventure tourism, and who can resist the lure of a bit of danger every now and then? It sure makes for a hell of a better party when that pompous fool that talks about his travels through Europe is upstaged by you talking about that one time you wrestled a grizzly bear to the ground with one hand tied behind your back. Ok, that last bit is a bit of an exaggeration but the thrill and spill of an adventure excursion is hard to overlook, so peruse these destinations the next time you consider running off somewhere dangerous.

  • In the lap of Alaskan nature
    In the lap of Alaskan nature
    For miles across the icy expanse, not a sound is to be heard. Silence might be golden, and this is a potential gold mine awaiting the crazy gold rush. But there is none to be seen, and all I have for company are the sounds of Orcas echoing across the waters and through the rolling fog. The chill penetrates my very soul and is a strange, calming influence and it keeps the sun from peeking out from its quarters beyond the clouds. Often I have heard the saying “in nature’s lap” but this I believe is it even without having ever witnessed these scenes before. Playfully, I exhale a burst of hot air and watch as it turns to little wisps on the wind, drifting aimlessly away from me just as the baby seal is, completely unperturbed by my presence in its home. The strip of land in southeastern Alaska is known to people as the Inside Passage  [...]

  • 5 Lava lakes to set your world alight
    5 Lava lakes to set your world alight
    Lava lakes are nature’s way of putting on a light and sound show for you. Just make sure you don’t get too close to the show because it is still lava we’re talking about at the end of the day. Lava lakes that have been around for some time are a rarity since they need active volcanoes to supply them a steady stream of lava. As such, only 5 of them exist anywhere in the world and they can form in vents or craters or any broad vessel for the lava. Visiting an active lava lake gives visiting a hot and happening place an all new meaning as evidenced by these sites. Nyiragongo, Democratic Republic of Congo This volcano located in the Congo is arguably the single most violent lava lake in the world, fuelled as it is by the constant eruptions of Nyiragongo Volcano. This has been caused by cracks forming in the Earth’s crust at places  [...]

    Get Down With Crocs in Proserpine River Tour
    There is huge debate going on in Australia to whether to make crocodile hunting legalize or not? But RSPCA, Humane Society International and also the International Fund for Animal Welfare, are few names to name among many other NGOs and organizations, who criticized such form of entertainment recommendation. There are people on both side of the argument, but people recommending safari hunts of crocodiles just for merely fun is sick! Australia, known as land of Kangaroos, is also a best place to see huge and ferocious beast, crocodiles. here there are number of humans who get killed or attacked by the crocs, each year, but crocs are killed more than humans, then also crocodiles is the  arguably the ultimate apex predator. With so many eco-friendly crocodile safari happening these days, we have to ask the question, why not just respect  [...]
