Travel video about destination Holland.
The European kingdom of Holland, known also as the Netherlands, was until relatively recently a powerful trading nation that possessed many colonies.Most of this land of tulips, windmills and canals is located below sea level and in the 17th century was the most prosperous country in Europe. Amsterdam is Holland`s splendid metropolis, a city of canals and gables where almost anything is permitted as long as it does no harm. Today the view across the main square and royal castle gives little hint that the city is supported by stakes and is the largest lakeland village in the world. In a huge open-air area between Amsterdam and Schiphol Airport, every ten years an international exhibition of garden architecture is held, the Floriade. It features hundreds of blossoming show gardens that are admired by millions of visitors from all over the world. In the 16th century life on the ocean wave brought glorious times for the city of Edam that is now world famous for its cheese of the same name. More than thirty shipyards once prospered in the city and the fleet of legendary Dutch hero, Michiel De Ruyter, was built there. Mijmegen lies proudly on the banks of the River Waal. The origins of Holland’s oldest city are to be found in the Roman settlement of Noviomagum. The triangular market square of this university and Hanseatic town is dominated by the Waag House, a red-bricked building of Renaissance design. The Molens Van Kinderdijk is a fascinating landscape of windmills and a Unesco World Heritage Sight. Its nineteen windmills are world famous and of course typical of Holland. The fascination of old cities, dreamy fairytale-like villages, paintings by some of the world’s greatest artists, bicycles and windmill: Holland is very much a land of the familiar and also the exotic.

Travel video about destination Kenya.
Founded by Alexander The Great in 332 B.C., the city of Alexandria is located in the Nile Delta and it was here that Caesar and Mark Anthony fell under Cleopatra’s spell.Cairo is Africa’s largest city and the heart of the Arab world, extreme poverty living next to opulent wealth, and modern, Western boutiques next to ancient souks. The Cairo Museum is home to the most extensive collection of Egyptian antiquities, including the golden mask and tomb of Tutankamun. Towering above almost any other human achievement are the impressive three pyramids of Gisa. The Cheops Pyramid, the world’s largest single construction, took four hundred thousand workers twenty years to build. It weighs as much as all the cathedrals in Europe put together and spans an area of 53,000 square metres – the height of a fifty storey skyscraper. In the middle of today’s modern city of Luxor, known as the ‘Capital City Of The Pharaohs’, the Luxor Temple stretches along the eastern banks of the Nile and, not far away, the temple complex of Karnak and the Amun Temple. 67 kilometres from Luxor, on the western bank of the Nile, lies the Temple Of Dendera, the most important place of worship for the love goddess, HATHOR, whose heavenly appearance was portrayed by the body of a cow. At Aswan, the landscape of the Nile is enchanting, but it is the stone temples of Abu Simbel that take one back to ancient Egypt, land of the Pharaohs, and archaeological paradise.

A client testimonial taken in Sep 2011 at Fairy Meadows. In the background, you can see the might of Nanga Parbat, the 9th highest mountain in the world and the western anchor of The Himalayas.

Fairy Meadows has really come a long way in the last five years as the locals are now able to provide hot water and even electricity up at 3300m.

10 unknown destinations from Treehouse Point the place to go for healthy adventure or head out to Finland for the best arctic resort.

5. Trinity Lavra of St. Sergius
You can probably guess where this monastery is located just by looking at it. Did you guess Russia? Congrats, you are right. This iconic looking church was first built in 1337, and it has since become an essential Russian cultural landmark and the center of the Russian Orthodox Church. 300 monks still live in this new monastery, and it is even a Russian UN World Heritage site. The church got its name from the man that founded it: Sergius of Radonezh who is a famous Russian saint that reformed medieval Russia. The inside is just as beautiful as the outside if not even more so. It’s been through a lot throughout the years, but the church is well cared for and loved, so it is still in excellent condition.

4. Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort
While it may look weird that this resort has igloo-looking structures with a massive skylight, the reason why is sure to make you want to go there. These little suites are built to let you view the northern lights in style and comfort. The resort in Finland offers a breathtaking and cozy observational room with just the bare minimum called a glass igloo, but they also have a variety of suites that you can choose between. There are ten different accommodations that you can choose from igloos made from the traditional snow; Santa’s home that is decorated to look like the Christmas icon lives there, a traditional house with all of the fixings, and even a wedding suite. The glass igloos are only available from the 20th of August to the end of April during the year, because that is when the northern lights come out to play.

3. Monsanto
This little municipality in Portugal only has 828 inhabitants, believe it or not. The city is known as the most Portuguese village in Portugal, and it is one of 12 cities that have been classified to have historical significance to the country. The town has evidence of dating back to the Early Stone Ages at the time of the Ice Ages. You can find traces of the Romans, Visigothic, and Arab presences in the town but in the 12th century when the city was conquered by Alfonso I of Portugal, it hasn’t traded cultures since. The city is actually built on top of a mountain rock that is made of granite, giving it a unique appearance. There once stood a castle in the town, but it was destroyed in the 19th century when some ammunition exploded.

2. Pingvallavatn Lake
This lake is the largest lake in Iceland that is mostly a favorite for die-hard scuba and diving fans. The lake is approximately 84 square meters or 32 square miles, and it reaches depths of 114 meters or 374 feet. The main draw of the lake is that it partially lies on top of the meeting of the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates so there is a small divide that you can dive into safely. The rift is called Silfra, and it is the division formed from the drifting of the plates. the water is incredibly clear as well because the water in the fracture is fed from a nearby glacier. The rift gets about 2 centimeters wider every year, and there are earthquakes every ten years at the division which can expedite this widening. This isn’t the only split in the world but it is the widest and definitely the coolest.

1.Las Pozas
This surreal landmark was actually built by Edward James who was a British poet who was one of the main influences during the surrealist art movement in the 20th century. These giant, artistic sculptures are 2000 feet or 610 meters above sea level in the rainforest in Mexico. The site stretches over 80 acres of land and in addition to the many sculptures there are also pools and waterfalls interlaced in the site. That’s how it got its name; Las Poza means the pools in Spanish. There are also paintings and entire beds of orchids; there were supposedly 29,000 orchids at the location at one point. James also included little homes for exotic animals. The construction took place during 1949 to 1984, and it ended up being more than 5 million to build. The location was bought in 2007 by a foundation that plans to restore and maintain the landmark for future generations. This insane work of art may be a little out there, but it is a must-see.
