Bora Bora - French Polynesia

A couple of thousand miles east off the coast of Australia lie the French Polynesian islands. One of these islands is that of Bora Bora. Surrounded by a lagoon and a barrier reef this island is beautiful and a virtual haven for the ecotourist.

The island is very much self-sustaining with most of its produce coming from the sea, thus ensuring that every penny spent goes directly back into the local economy.

Also known as the Marble Cathedral, Chile's Marble Caves are considered to be the most beautiful network of caves in the world. Set in the General Carrera lake in Patagonia - the second largest freshwater lake in South America - the caves consist of an intricate system of water-filled caverns which cause an unparalleled spectacle by way of a natural 'light show', with the marbled walls reflecting off the azure surface of the lake.

Vat Phou Boat was built at the beginning of the century, in order to transport downriver the extremely valuable "tek", construction and decoration wood, mostly resistant and refined, but that was not its destiny, because fate does not exist, the boat was doomed not to transport tek but rather being wainscoted with it.

Discovering Laos with Teamworkz Mario's Adventure - Day 2 - Pakse Vat Phou Boat

By Laeti, 10/09/2012 - 00:43

Champasak Palace is something more than a hotel, it was built by a local prince in the 50s in order to make it its residence. Something got wrong with the revolution and, forced to flee to France, he had to leave the building unaccomplished. So it became a hotel, clinging on a little hill overlooking the city, every room is like a small apartment and the one where I wake up, on the fourth floor, is lighted by that glowing sun that follows a rainy night.

"One of the most exciting sensations to experience is to cross a border" wrote Ryszard Kapucinsky in his book "A trip with Erodotus". That geo-political boundary dividing two states can be a valley, a river, a mountain or even.....nothing. Very often it is just a line on a geographical map and if we call it border (from the Latin cum + finis), it means something is coming to an end on one side, but something else is certainly starting on the other.
