Anse Chastanet Delivers Unique Luxury

My first thought as we were landing at Hewanorra International is my goodness this place is beautiful. This volcanic island's scenery is beyond what I could have possibly imagined. The twin peaks stood out right away and I was glad to hear that I would have a great view from where I would be staying - Anse Chastanet. As I am getting settled into my room I noticed a pleasant surprise; everything and I mean literally everything has been locally made or handcrafted. The bedspread and cushions are made from the national cloth called madras. The furniture was mahogany, red cedar, wild breadfruit and other local woods. It is always so great to see the use of local resources as so many resorts have seemed to escape their identity.

Travel Cheats: Venice Italy

Romantic and charismatic, Venice, Italy is an enchanted vacation destination that let's you step back 600 years into the past. With 20 million tourists flocking here each year locals know how to make sure you have a great time. The popularity also means a plethora of options await. Planning what to do and where to stay can be intimidating in a city with so many choices. We have simplified travel to Venice with top travel tips for your vacation: Venice is a small city but it would still take a few hours to walk from one end to the other. Getting around is not necessarily easy, especially for those with limited mobility. For this reason due diligence about where to rest at night (not just the hotel but the actual district) is extremely important. If you are one of the 16.5 million yearly visitors staying for a day, spend the extra money and pick something close to your favorite attractions. If staying for a week or more you might want to consider switching hotels half way through. Stay close to the attractions and explore, than move to an outer area if planning on heading to places like Pisa or the vineyards.

8 Coolest Caves in the World

Gob-smacked by the sheer awesomeness that these natural wonders possess, we are in search of the worlds coolest caves. Imagine standing in a cavern with hundreds of feet of million year old rock looming over and around you. As you peruse these photos don't just look, try to imagine yourself there and what it would feel like. For me, the sensation at the Cenotes was a combination of thrill, surprise, nervousness, and awe. To describe a cave experience in one word is impossible, which lead me to seeking out and sharing the coolest caves across the globe. Humans and caves have a lengthy history and a relationship that continues today. In the past they were used as homes, burial chambers, and religious sites. Human kind etched drawings onto their walls for future generations to find and study. Like taking ice samples in the antarctic, caves even help us understand the climate from era's long ago. I think you will agree caves are fascinating and mesmerizing.
