Mayon Volcano, Cagsawa Ruins, Philippines

Christine travelled to Legazpi to see Mayon Volcano. Flying into Legazpi, we were amazed at the beautiful landscape, thousands of coconut palms cover the surrounding hills of Bicol, the southernmost region of Luzon. In the distance, the almost perfect cone of Mayon Volcano appears, rising through the clouds, 8,081 ft (2,043 m) in elevation.

Namibian Dreams - Visual Diary from the African Desert

That's exactly what this video is—there's no direct story or plot line. It's a moving diary, a series of images they captured travelling through the beautiful and far country of Namibia. Ross Borden (Matador Network CEO/Co-founder) was behind the wheel and for two weeks they travelled down desolate, dusty roads on an epic road trip that neither of them will soon forget. They were in country to attend the ATTA's Adventure Travel World Summit. Last year it was hosted in Namibia, and Matador was invited to come down and be part of the "storytelling team."

The following are the sights and sounds they encountered while making their way through Namibia. I hope you enjoy this country's beauty as much as they did.

A drone’s eye view of Necker Island

Sir Richard Branson welcomed six drones to Necker and they’ve captured stunning footage of this beautiful island they call home.

According to Sir Richard Branson, “Every morning before breakfast I go for a walk around Necker. I’m incredibly lucky to have had Necker in my life for nearly 40 years, and I feel I know it like the back of my hand. So it’s amazing to get views of this island that I’ve never seen before thanks to a few drones and the great team at 3D Robotics, a company I recently invested in. They even shot me playing tennis and kitesurfing to Moskito Island!

It’s amazing to see what a little flying object with a GoPro attached can do; before they came along the alternative was an expensive helicopter and crew. I’m really excited about the potential for drones, and I hope this affordable technology will give many more people the chance to see our beautiful planet from such a powerful perspective.

But it’s not just about beauty shots. When you say the word ‘drone’, most people will think about military drones, which are used for surveillance and warfare. But this increasingly affordable, easy to use technology is starting to be used around the world in many positive ways. Like to monitor endangered species, deliver healthcare to remote areas, and help manage natural disasters.

We’ll be sharing lots of stories about people and organisations involved in drones over on Virgin Unite from next week in our ‘Drones for good’ series”.

You have to lie down flat to squeeze between these lagoons


This is Twin Lagoon in Coron, Philippines.

Twin lagoon is really one of the highlights of Coron's island hopping experience.

The first lagoon is where the boats dock, while the second lagoon is concealed, the only access of which is a small crack underneath the rock, or during high tide, a ladder over the rock.

One may notice that the waters in the twin lagoons may sometimes be foggy, this is caused by the meeting of the salt water and fresh water.

The temperature of the waters in the Twin Lagoons also alternates between warm and cold, where the cold freshwater meets the hot salt water.

It is very restful to just take a life jacket and just float and drift in the lagoon.

This park in the Philippines lets you bike on a wire

This Farm of the Future Uses No Soil and 95% Less Water

As populations continue to ascent, pioneers are looking beyond conventional farming as a way to supply everyone while having less impact on our land and water resources. Vertical farming is one solution that's been enforced around the world. Vertical farms produce crops in stacked layers, often in controlled environments such as those built by AeroFarms in Newark, New Jersey. AeroFarms grows a variety of leafy salad greens using a process called "aeroponics," which relies on air and mist. AeroFarms' crops are grown entirely indoors using a reusable cloth medium made from recycled plastics. In the absence of sun exposure, the company uses LED lights that expose plants to only certain types of spectrum. AeroFarms claims it uses 95% less water than a traditional farm thanks to its specially designed root misting system. And it is now building out a new 70,000 square foot facility in a former steel mill. Once completed, it's expected to grow 2 million pounds of greens per year, making it the biggest indoor vertical farm in the world.

WORLD'S MOST INSTAGRAMMED BRIDGE

About 347ft above the Skokomish River on the Olympic Peninsula sits America’s second-tallest railway trestle, the 442ft-long Vance Creek Bridge. The 1929 logging bridge became a viral sensation in the last few years when explorers began taking some pretty epic photographs and posting them on Instagram. Not so fast though! The bridge sits on private property, and the owners aren’t too keen on people trespassing on this dangerous bridge any longer.

Walking on Water: Christo's Floating Piers

For sixteen days – June 18 through July 3, 2016 – Italy’s Lake Iseo is being re imagined. 100,000 square meters of shimmering yellow fabric, carried by a modular floating dock system of 220,000 high-density polyethylene cubes, undulate with the movement of the waves as The Floating Piers rise just above the surface of the water.

Visitants can experience this work of art by walking on it from Sulzano to Monte Isola and to the island of San Paolo, which is framed by The Floating Piers. The mountains surrounding the lake offer a bird’s-eye view of The Floating Piers, exposing unnoticed angles and altering perspectives. Lake Iseo is located 100 kilometers east of Milan and 200 kilometers west of Venice.
