Seriously Extreme Waterslides You Won't Believe!

Seriously Extreme Waterslides You Won't Believe! | Travel | Scoop.it

No one with an ounce of fun in their bodies would argue against the awesomeness of water slides. Yes, water parks are usually teeming with near-naked bodies which are usually disturbingly close to the ‘every branch of the ugly tree’ end of the spectrum, and the ratio of ride time to queue time is often somewhere around the 1:1000 mark, but hey, as Dolly Parton once so rightly said, you can’t have the rainbow without the rain. And she’s one country music singin’ gal who knows her water slides...

Love these unbelievably awesome slides! Perfect adrenalin junkie stuff right here :)

Close Your Eyes and Go To Your Happy Place

Close Your Eyes and Go To Your Happy Place | Travel | Scoop.it

Everybody loves a good beach. Clear blue waters and sugar white sands are the stuff that dreams are made of. However, for many of us, these dream beaches remain firmly in fantasy land for most of the year. Everyday life consists more of staring at screens than the blue horizon, or trotting through the rainy streets with jacket over head on the short, grey journey from the car to the office. When life can sometimes feel dark, dank and dreary, it’s important to have a happy place in your mind where you can go. Where could be happier than these incredible beaches, some of the leading beauties on the planet?

How Travel Can Help You Live A Better Life

How Travel Can Help You Live A Better Life | Travel | Scoop.it

You know that phrase ‘travel broadens the mind’? Well, it’s true. Even the most set-in-their-ways folk come back from travelling as different people, though some, admittedly, more so than others. What may not be immediately obvious, to those who have never succumbed to a bout of wanderlust, are the many ways that travel fundamentally affects the way you see the world thereafter, and in a variety of ways. We chatted to a few people who’ve been lucky enough to take the plunge and go travelling, to see how their experience has changed them.

Epic Journeys: Travel in the Footsteps of Alexander the Great | Travel | Scoop.it

Alexander the Great (or Alexander III of Macedon to use his official title) was born in Macedonia in 356 BC and was educated by the famous philosopher Aristotle. Alexander's ambition was to make Macedonia the powerful nation it once was and so, when he inherited the kingdom in 336 at the age of just 20, he set out to conquer, not just the Persian Empire, but the entire world.
