A journey by train is passionate dream, but a trip to Glacier Express from St. resorts Moritz and Zermattin Switzerland can be anyone’s dream. The trip takes more than seven hours for the train that crosses 291 bridges and 91 tunnels while meandering through the Swiss mountains, reaching a point at 2,000 meters altitude. Thus, Switzerland may further check a list after achieving watches, chocolate and banking system, a train journey that not only works with the precision of a Swiss watch, but you do and enjoy the most spectacular scenery that this small country in the heart Europe offers. A ticket to embark on this journey exceed 250 euros in first class. Finally do not feel that you paid a train ticket, but a ticket to the show nature, landscapes are not infrequently dramatic, especially seen from aboard a train that is on the Landwasser viaduct. The trip can be done in summer and winter, so the choice is difficult, as you had to choose between a watch Patek Philippe and Vacheron Constantin piece. Must therefore choose between towering forests and turquoise lakes and snowy mountain peaks on whose shoulders all the snow seems to click. Any choice you make will be the winner jackpot.
Argentina is often synonymous with football or tango with red wine or beef spectacular. Too many times, Patagonia is the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the name of the South American country.When still hear Patagonia automatically think the wonders of nature, magical landscapes and surreal colors.Where South America almost ends in a national park that is or at least should be mandatory on all lists of travelers to achieve in life, is Perito Moreno, one of the 48 glaciers Ring of Ice. When you get there you’re not shocked that no matter how great ice cream is the eye can see. Stay blues surprised that water can take in solid form. Sounds like a broken landscape of the cartoon Ice Age, but in fact ice under the soles of shoes is alive and groaning every wrong step you make. According to Lonely Planet, this glacier is moving every day with 2 meters further proof he is alive. Can you settle for a cruise around or make a trip over glacier, a unique journey that requires crampons, suitable clothing and a touch of madness.

Diversity Ma’In Jordan is crowned with waterfalls where you can enjoy spa treatments, a romantic candlelight dinner in a garden of olive trees and a lunch on the rocks when your legs are spread as the eye can see the Dead Sea.

Access to waterfalls can be done without accommodation, but charges.
When you say Indonesia, most think of Bali and the island of the gods. For those who have reached Raja Ampat archipelago but this is the true picture of Paradise, where over the rainbow and walking on toes while you bathe in the sea from the terrace turquoise own bungalow built a meter above the water.
