We’ve compiled a list of the best reasons why everyone should enrich their life with around the world travel.
  4. 4. Adventurous around the world Africa Africa is one of the most beautiful continents in the world. From the gorgeous wild animals to the ancient history, many of the countries in Africa are absolutely worth seeing. Sadly, some are war-torn and others experience devastating natural disasters, but if you are looking for a wonderful adventure, Africa is the place to start. The interesting thing about traveling to Africa is the diverse range of vacations from which to choose. Whether you prefer a boat tour, a safari in the jungle, a relaxing spa holiday, or are captivated by the birds and other wildlife, Africa is sure to be a delight. The people, culture, traditions Each culture is different, with many languages, savory food, and exciting traditions. Unquestionably, interacting with the people will be one of the greatest rewards on your journey to Africa. Experts document that there are probably more than seven thousand different tribes in Africa. A sampling of their names are Bachokwe, Dengese, Guerze, Tussian and Zulu. The Great Pyramids at Giza Egypt The Egyptian pyramids perhaps need no introduction, being the icons most associated with Egypt. Most of the pyramids (there are over 100 pyramids in Egypt) were built as tombs to preserve the mummified bodies of the dead pharaohs. In these massive tombs, the pharaohs’ bodies would continue receiving food offerings long after their death.
  5. 5. The greatest of these pyramids is the tomb of Pharaoh Khufu (also known as Pharaoh Cheops), found at Giza, a few kilometers south of Cairo. Also found at Giza is the great Sphinx, a half-human half-lion statue considered one of the world’s largest and oldest statue. 2. Masai Mara National Reserve Kenya The Masai Mara National Reserve is Kenya's premier wildlife park. It was established in 1961 to protect wildlife from hunters. The Masai Mara is the reason many visitors come to Kenya and its beauty and abundant wildlife. The Masai Mara located in southwestern Kenya on the border of Tanzania. The reserve is situated in the Rift Valley with Tanzania's Serengeti Plains running along its southern end. Most of the Masai Mara is made up of hilly grassland which is fed by plentiful rain, especially during the wet months between November and June. The areas bordering the Mara river are forested and are home to over several hundred bird species. ASIA, ANCIENT HISTORY Asia is the most extensive and populous continent, it is located east of Europe, North Oceania and western America. China, Japan, India and Russia are some countries of this continent. This continent is full of contrasts, possibilities, sun and beach, amazing sceneries and cultural diversity, in Camboya, for example you can visit the main group of temples, Angkor Wat is a temple dedicated to Hindu god Vishnu and is the largest temple in the world, Taj Mahal is one of the tourist destinations for tourists because it was built in white marble with precious inlaid and the Great wall of China Some foods like rice are accompanied by sauce and vegetables, you can eat dog meat, turtle and snake.

TAJ MAHAL Is one of those places that dazzle for its arquitecture, spirituality and peace who feel their visitors to reach.It is located in Agra city.

Opinions of what constitutes Oceania range from its three subregions of Melanesia, Micronesia, and Polinesia to, more broadly, the entire insular region between Asia and the Americas, including Australasia and the Malay Archipelago. The term is sometimes used more specifically to denote a continent comprising Australia and proximate islands, or biogeographically as a synonym for either the australian ecozones (Wallaceaand Australasia) or the Pacific ecozone (Melanesia, Polynesia, and Micronesia apart either from New Zeland or from mainland New Guinea). Continent of Oceania is often call Australia as well, but includes more countries than just Australia. Oceania is the smallest continent by size and the second smallest in terms of population. Oceania is located to the southeast of Asia. It is made up of Australia and a number of island countries. Oceania and its islands are surrounded by the Indian Ocean and the Pacific Ocean. Much of Oceania's land mass is desert, but there are also very lush areas. Oceania

Population: 36,593,000 (Source: 2010 United Nations) Area: 3,296,044 square miles Ranking: It is the seventh largest (smallest) and sixth most populous continent.

Well, we decide to make a list with description of each of these tourist destinations. Please remember that this is a selection of just two of places we like a lot and can recommend and not the most visited destinations in Australia.There are at leat 30 more places that should not be missed. Sydney is the main entry point in Australia for most people, and the city offers many interesting sites to visit such as the Opera House, Darling Harbour with marine aquarium, lots of Shopping malls, museums, and it worth a visit to the other side of the bay including the Zoo and the beach of Mainly.

  8. 8. AMERICA CONTINENT America is a continent that occupies much of the Western Hemisphere of the Earth. It extends from the Arctic Ocean in the north to Cape Horn in the south, at the confluence of the Atlantic and Pacific oceans that define the continent to the east and west, respectively. With an area of 42,262,142 km ², is the second largest land mass in the world, covering 8.3% of the total surface of the planet and 28.4% of the landmass, and it accounts for about 14% human population. Because of its large size and its geographic, America is divided traditionally in North America, Central America and South America. Some geographers consider Central America as a subregion of North America. Given its cultural characteristics distinguished Anglo American, the non-Latin Caribbean and Latin America. The continent had previously been called with the name Abya Yala Central American cultures and Cem Anahuac by the Aztecs. More than 900 million people live in the Americas (about 13.5% of the human population), the most populous countries being the United States, Brazil, and Mexico, the most populous cities being Mexico City, São Paulo, and New York City. THE TWO COUNTRIES MOST VISITED BY TOURISTS. UNITED STATES OF AMERICA If we know the American tourist countries must mention first the United States, located on the North American continent, where you will find fabulous cities like Miami, New York, Los Angeles, Boston, Houston, Orlando, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Washington and many more. Among its most prominent attractions found
  9. 9. to Yellowstone National Park and its geological natural landmarks and hot springs which highlights the Great Source Prismatic. It is worth mentioning that this park is one of the oldest in the country because it was created in 1872. Also worth noting it is the Statue of Liberty, a gift that gave France to New York City in 1886. To specifically know we must go to Staten Island. In the United States we can find the amusement park world famous Walt Disney World. We can not help mentioning famous museums like the Natural History Museum and the Smithsonian. BRASIL The South American country of similar size to the United States is a beautiful place characterized by its warm climate and breathtaking landscapes. It is for this reason that no tourist should miss seeing this amazing country. Brazil, the land of samba, has the same name as a coastal tree reddish wood. This huge country has many tourist places like: Sao Paulo, located in the southeast of Brazil, is the largest cultural venue, tourist, economic and technological.

This great city was founded in 1960 and has wonderful buildings and dazzling.
  10. 10. EUROPA Europe is a dream destination for many and a frequent destination for many more. It has everything to offer just about anyone. Each country is unique and has a wonderful mix of history, culture and many local sights to see. No matter the country or countries you travel to, you’ll never run out of things to do. Even getting around is part of the fun. Many European countries have joined what is known as a collective group of 22 Member States that have opened their borders to the nationals of 34 countries and have invited them to travel without a Visa for up to 3 months at a time. For this simple reason alone, it makes Europe a very attractive travel destination. Nowhere in the world can you travel to so many different countries, some within hours of one another, in such a short period of time, with total freedom at each border crossing. All you will need to enter the 22 Member States is proof that you are a national of one of the 34 countries with free access, such as your passport and proof that you plan to return home after a visit of 3 months or less—for this purpose a return or round-trip plane ticket, a travel itinerary, a letter of invitation and/or a hotel or motel reservations receipt will work. Of course, some of the more popular European sights to see are (in no particular order): France-for the Louvre, the Eiffel Tower, and the Champs-Elysees; Italy- for the Leaning Tower of Pisa, Vatican City, and the Duomo Museum; Spain- for the Alhambra, Seville’s Cathedral and the Guggenheim; Germany-for the Royal Castles of Neuschwanstein, Berlin and the Bavarian town of Lindau. There are five countries that you need to be aware are not part of the 22 Member States with open borders, they are: Bulgaria, Cyprus, Ireland, the United Kingdom and Romania. You will need a Visa to travel across each of these country’s borders. However, the rest of Europe is your oyster. Now that you know why you should travel to Europe, start planning your trip to go. When making all the travel arrangements, be certain to get the travel insurance you need. There are many different travel insurance products to choose from and they are surprisingly inexpensive considering what type of coverage you get. Choose the ones that fit your travel plans the best. Suggested policies
  11. 11. include: Travel medical Insurance, Trip Cancellation Coverage, and packages with multiple types of travel insurance coverage.
