How would you like to stay at a hotel that is a huge cruise ship, on dry land, perched on a cliff overlooking the ocean in South Korea?  Or have a meal at a Philippine restaurant at the bottom of a water fall with your feet resting in the water?  Or watch a movie from a floating cinema in Thailand?  We’ve got all this, plus places of beautiful or exotic nature and human ingenuity.

When most people think of Greece, they think of the Acropolis in Athens or maybe the Temple of Delphi. Those places are certainly great, but for me, when I think of Greece I now think of Meteora. The Greek Orthodox monasteries in the region are all jaw-dropping. You canít help but wonder how the world the monasteries were built, let alone how someone was able to climb up on to the rocks to begin with. Meteora is a must-see for people visiting Greece and want to get out of Athens.

Lake Natron, Tanzania. As water evaporates during the very hot and dry season, salinity levels increase to the point that salt-loving microorganisms begin to thrive. The red pigment in the organisms produces the deep reds of the open water of the lake and the orange colors of the shallow parts of the lake.
