Napoli Vacation Travel Video Guide



Travel video about destination Napoli. Napoli is the capital of Campania in southern Italy where hustle and bustle combines with serenity and joie de vivre. The Centro Storico Monumentale is located around the harbour and the Piazza Del Plebiscito embodies both grandeur and vastness, in contrast to the narrow confines of the old town. Close to the harbour is the mighty Castel Nuovo, its graceful entrance arch seemingly hemmed-in by two awkward-looking towers. Its construction began during the reign of Charles The First but Alfons Of Aragon subsequently had the castle completely rebuilt. From the centre of the town a small causeway leads to the tiny island of Borgo Santa Lucia. The island is dominated by a building which in ancient times was the residence of Lucullus, namely the Castel Dell´Ovo, the oldest fortress in Naples. The Via Partenope, with its magnificent buildings and luxury hotels on the coast near Santa Lucia, developed by land reclamation in the nineteenth century. A walk along the Caracciolo coastal road towards Mergellina passes the Parco Communale with palm trees, sculptures and fountains. Measuring four square kilometres, Procida is the smallest island off Naples, densely populated and with a long history and the picturesque Marina Grande at the Cattolocio Ferry Port typifies relaxed island life. Ischia, the island of Titan Tiphoios, is the largest of the three islands in the Gulf Of Naples, each one now being a very popular tourist destination. "A piece of heaven that fell to Earth”, that is how the Neapolitans rightly refer to their beautiful city and its surroundings.

The Most Dangerous Journey to School in the World ...Little Kids Climbing a 2,624 Foot Cliff

Children as young as six from Atuler village in Sichuan province have to scale a huge rockface using rickety ladders to go to school. Imagine if you had to literally scale a cliff to get to work or school, risking death each time. That’s what fifteen children do in an isolated mountain village in China to get to school, and after images of the potentially deadly climb went viral, Chinese authorities have promised to help. Children from Atule'er village were pictured climbing vine ladders to go back to remote homes at 2,624 feet high. The perilous journey takes two hours and they are supervised by parents who use ropes to ensure their safety. An official of Shaojue County said the trip could be extremely dangerous and it had killed around eight residents. Due to the treacherous commute, some children from the village can't receive education after they reach school age The Communist party secretary in Sichuan province said a steel staircase will be built while the government searches for a longterm solution, the Guardian reports. For now, the children of Atuler village continue climbing down flimsy ladders and over bare rock races, while wearing their backpacks, for more than an hour to get to school. The journey is so treacherous, thateven or eight people have died attempting it. The kids only return home twice a month. Chen Jie, who took the photographs of the climb that brought attention to the village, described the trek to the Guardian. “It is very dangerous. You have to be 100% careful,” he said. “If you have any kind of accident, you will fall straight into the abyss.” These pupils, who aged between six and 15, were seen carrying heavy bags and supervised by three parents. Their homes at the Atule'er village boasts an altitude of 4,600 feet. The village is so remote that only 72 families live there, most of whom make a living by growing chillies. Once the they arrive at the Le'er Primary School, the children stay there for two weeks before making the treacherous journey back down the mountain to visit their families. Every time they come down or go up the mountain, their parents take it in turns to pick them up. For the parents who are used to the journey, it takes them an hour to go down the cliff and an hour and a half to go up. However for the young pupils, they need around two hours to scale the cliffs with the help of dangerous ladders. 30-year-old Chen Guji is one of the parents helped pick up the children on the day when reporters took the pictures. Chen told the reporter he had to get up at 6am that morning in order to descend the peak to pick up his four daughter and one son, as well as other children. His son, named Chen Muhei, is six years old and is the youngest of his five children. The father used rope and tied a knot around his son's backpacks to ensure his safety.

Top 10 Mysterious Things Found Frozen In Ice Antarctica



10 Strange, creepy and shocking things found on the ice in Antarctica, global warming opens the veil of secrecy over unique finds that have been buried in the ice for centuries and centuries.


14 Insane Pools You Won't Believe Actually Exist

Here are the top 14 most craziest pools in the world that you need to go swimming in from one in a waterfall to the deepest pool ever!

 8. The San Alfonso del Mar Seawater Pool Located in Algarrobo, Chile this pool is the second largest in the world. It lost the title of the largest to CityStars pool in Egypt but, it’s okay because they are built by the same people. It sits on 20 acres of land and it is actually made of salt water. 66 million gallons of it to be exact. The water is taken from the pacific ocean and then treated before being added to the pool. The pool took a whopping 2 billion to make and the annual upkeep for the location is 4 million.

7. The Library Pool The Library resort is located in Thailand and one of its main features is this eerily pool. It’s called the Red Pool and don’t worry it’s not blood. It's not even dyed either. The makers of the pool employed a clever optical illusion to create their signature pool. The color is caused by the combined reflection of the red, orange and yellow tile at the bottom of the pool. So you won’t look like Carrie on prom night when rising from this natural oddity.

 6. Giola Lagoon This natural pool is located on the Greek Island of Thassos. While the pool isn’t the easiest thing to get to the unbelievable view and thrill of swimming in it are well worth it. It overlooks the Aegean sea and the temperature of the lagoon is actually warmer than the sea itself so that swimming in it is much more pleasant. Not much is really known about this pool because of its general remoteness and its difficulty to reach.

 5. Blue Lagoon Geothermal Spa The presence of this Lagoon was actually caused by the building of a geothermal power plant nearby in Iceland. The plant was put in in the mid-1970s to early 1980s. The pool was built when it became common for people to bathe in the nearby. The effects that the pool water had on skin was discovered early on. The one-two punch of the mineral rich water and the mud at the bottom of the lagoon causes a considerable difference in the condition of people who suffer from skin diseases, most notably psoriasis. The owners of the pool have since capitalized on this to make one of the foremost spas in the world. The owners of the pool also try to have a strong focus on the environment because of the proximity of the geothermal plant. They want to promote uses of clean energy.

4. Grand Wailea The Grand Wailea hotel in Hawaii is known for its pools. It’s hard to compete when a beautiful ocean is just steps away from your hotel room but, the Grand Wailea delivers. The actually feature two pools. One is a 4,850 so foot pool which would be impressive enough for any other hotel but, the Grand Wailea’s main draw is its Wailea Canyon Activity Pool. This mammoth of a pool actually has six different floors, each equipped with its own pool. The Canyon Activity Pool is 2000 feet long, 25700 square feet and it has a whopping 770,000 gallons contained. One of the coolest things about this pool is the hotel’s “water elevator”. The water elevator can be used to take people from floor to floor of the pool. The hotel’s spa is actually award winning. It made the “Top Ten Spas in the US” list made by Travel and Leisure magazine.

3. The Homestead Crater The homestead crater is a spring hiding in a 55 feet tall crater in Midway, Utah. It’s a limestone cave that was naturally hollowed out by nature and the water inside runs at about 90 degrees. Since the location has become a popular tourist spot they have hollowed out a tunnel to make the water in the crater more accessible. They also allow scuba diving, snorkeling, and even paddleboard yoga classes. This pool is the only location in the continental united states that has warm water and it has become a favorite for divers because of that. The nearby Homestead Resort does admission and tours.

 2. The Hanging Gardens Ever wanted to feel like you’re going to fall into the forest? Then the Ubud Hanging Gardens Hotel in Bali, Indonesia is for you. This infinity pool is famous for its amazing views. You will appear to float over the forest and hotel room is equipped with its own pool. Hope you’re not afraid of heights.

1.Devil’s Pool That is not just a waterfall. It’s a pool too. A pool for crazy people. It’s at the edge of Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe. The pool is located at the top of the waterfall at a little over 400 feet. Sound dangerous? It is. It’s why this particular pool has become a popular destination for adrenaline junkies. The pool is a natural rock pool that lets you get almost right up to the edge of the waterfall without falling over. The pool can only be used in September and December though for safety reasons. The fear factor of the pool is more intense because there is no noticeable ledge to the pool. There is a rock that protects the swimmers from tumbling over, though.

5 Secret Chemtrail Experiments That Actually Happened



The trail of clouds that billow from an airplane streaking across the sky can be mesmerizing for children and adults alike. Jet engine traffic has become so common that it's not unusual to see several lingering streaks in the afternoon. And though many consider the streaks beautiful against a bright blue sky, others are alarmed about them. Concerns range from the idea that these streaks could exacerbate global warming to more elaborate theories that the government has secretly been dumping harmful substances on the land.

Before we get into the various theories about the possible harmful effects, let's discuss the scientific explanation for these streaks. Jet engines spew out very hot air. And, because water vapor is one of the byproducts of the exhaust, the air is also very humid. However, high in the atmosphere where these jets fly, the air is typically very cold -- often lower than -40 degrees Fahrenheit. Additionally, the atmosphere up there is often of low vapor pressure, or the force exerted by a gas on the surrounding environment.


When a jet engine is spewing out hot, humid air into an atmosphere that is cold and has low vapor pressure, the result is condensation. The water vapor coming out of the engine quickly condenses into water droplets and then crystallizes into ice. The ice crystals are the clouds that form behind the engine. This is why the streaks are called contrails, short for "condensation trails." To help explain it, scientists liken it to seeing your breath on cold days. You may have noticed that puffs of breath dissipate quickly on drier days. The same is true of contrails: When the atmosphere is more humid, the contrails linger, but when the atmosphere is dry, the contrails disappear more quickly.

This explanation makes sense. But, as author and airline pilot Patrick Smith tells readers, the contrails consist of not just ice crystals and water vapor but also other byproducts of engine exhaust. These include carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxides, sulfate particles and soot [source: Smith]. Some point out that these, in addition to the extra cloud cover, can have negative environmental effects. And conspiracy theorists have nicknamed contrails "chemtrails" under the suspicion that the government is taking advantage of this scientific phenomenon to secretly release other substances into the atmosphere.


2 wingsuit flyers BASE jump into a plane in mid-air. | A Door In The Sky



French wingsuit flyers recently completed an unbelievable stunt following a B.A.S.E. jump from the top of the Jungfrau mountain in Switzerland. Fred Fugen and Vince Reffet, known as the Soul Flyers, caught up with and flew into a plane in mid-air. As part of their project A Door in the Sky, which they had spent several months training for by completing more than 100 test flights in Empuriabrava in Spain, the duo B.A.S.E jumped from the top of the Jungfrau, one of Europe’s highest mountains, and flew into a Pilatus Porter light aircraft in mid-air. Now that's a different way to catch a flight. _ Experience the world of Red Bull like you have never seen it before.

Islands You Didn’t Know Exist

From Pico Island to North Sentinel Island this is a list of islands you didn't know exist.
 6. Utila The smallest of the Honduras Bay islands is Utila. Columbus mentions it in his ship’s log books during his fourth voyage. The island is a very popular backpacker destination and a favourite of divers. Which makes a lot of sense since this tiny island has twelve dive centres. It has beautiful white beaches and the world’s largest barrier reef outside of Australia. Oh ya, and if that’s not enough for you, you can swim with whale sharks there as well. If you are into that sort of thing. *You know the thing about a shark, he's got... lifeless eyes, black eyes, like a doll's eye.* Oh..sorry.. Whale sharks are not really dangerous like the great white in Jaws as they feed on plankton, not us.

5. Staniel Cay The Staniel Cay Island is located about 250 miles southeast of Florida in the Bahamas , roughly 75 miles south of Nassau. And it’s small. About 2 and half square miles. Have you ever seen the James Bond movie Thunderball from the sixties? It starred Sean Connery as Bond of course. Anyways parts of the movie were filmed at Thunderball Grotto, a nearby hollowed out island that has some pretty gnarly caves. That’s for all you spelunkers out there.

4. Saba Saba Island is part of the Dutch Caribbean. It is affectionately known as the ‘unspoiled queen of the caribbean’. That’s so sweet. It’s is home to roughly 2000 folks who are from all over the world. Christopher Columbus apparently saw the island in 1493, but chickened out on landing there because the rocks looked ‘too dangerous’. No big beaches or touristy resorts on Saba, but you will find an active volcano, sweet!

3. Gavdos Gavdos is the southernmost of the Greek islands. There’s less than fifty people that actually live on the island. How about this for you outdoorsy types, free camping! And for you types that love baring it all without fear of judgement or incarceration, extremely lax nudity laws! Gavdos is a favourite of backpackers as well as those who love to get naked. Did I mention their nudity laws are pretty non-existent? Well you can’t mention it enough. And you need to take a special ferry boat to get there.

2. Fernando De Noronha The Fernando De Noronha is actually made up of a group of 21 small islands in the Atlantic Ocean about 220 miles off the coast of Brazil. It is said that the very best beach in the world can be found in these islands. Brazilians know their beaches, and soccer, and festivals, and waxes, so I’ll take their word on that. Only 420 tourists are allowed on the islands at any given time and it’s is also very pricey to go there.

1. Palmyra Atoll The Palmyra Atoll is located in the Pacific Ocean almost due south of the Hawaiian Islands. Atoll means a ring shaped island chain. This chain is classified as unoccupied and is recognized as an unorganized incorporated territory by the U.S.government. Although it is considered unoccupied, there are 420 people who populate these islands. Excuse me...they are referred to as non-occupants. They are staff and scientists that work for different departments of the U.S government and for the Nature Conservancy. Now let all the conspiracy nuts….oops I mean theorists go crazy! No I don’t mean crazy as insane, I mean ,,well you know...aww..forget it.

Amazing Dubai



Having expanded along both banks of the Creek, Dubai is divided into two parts - Deira on the northern side and Bur Dubai to the south, as well as the top tourist destination of Jumeirah.

Abras, the traditional water taxis, are regularly used each day to cross people over to either side of the Creek. Each side has its share of fine mosques and busy souqs, public buildings, shopping malls, hotels, office towers, banks, hospitals, schools, apartments and villas. Dubai is blessed with golden sunshine and silvery beaches.

From the timeless tranquility of the desert to the lively bustle of the souk, Dubai does not only boast the best contemporary sightings but has also preserved some of the most intriguing historical attractions.



Leonardo da Vinci artwork makes auction history at Christie's



A rare rediscovered painting by Renaissance master Leonardo da Vinci has become the most expensive piece of art ever sold at auction. Leonardo's masterwork, "Salvator Mundi," a depiction of Christ as "Saviour of the World", went for four times its estimated value. The artwork has gone under the hammer for a record-breaking $450.3m. It's a far cry from 1958 when it fetched a mere 60 dollars. At the time, it was thought to be painted by a student of da Vinci, rather than the master himself. But is this a sign of renewed respect for the old masters, or the result of some savvy marketing?

Unbelievable Places That Really Exist


From the unreal Yoro Park in Japan to the Bergpark Wilhelmshohe in Germany, here are Unbelievable Places That Really Exist. Learn about the BIGGEST of everything Monday, Wednesday, and Friday just subscribe!

# 8 Yoro Park The town of Yoro located in the Gifu prefecture of Japan is relatively small and unremarkable with a population of just 33,000. However, many people are attracted to this place because of the Yoro Park Site of Reversible Destiny. It is a strange “theme park” that doesn’t have the roller coasters or rides that most theme parks offer. Instead, it boasts surreal landscaping, perfectly round domes covered in grass, and architecture that will make you scratch your head. It was originally designed to incorporate the 100 waterfalls in the area into a unified place.

# 7 Beppu, Japan The Japanese island of Kyushu is home to many things, but is also known to be a very active hotbed of geothermal activity. Hot springs have bubbled up over the city of Beppu and are so hot they create huge steam clouds that rise above the rooftops, making it look like the entire city is on fire. These springs are colored a deep blue or deep orange but are too hot to bathe in, ranging in temperature from 50 to 99.5 degrees Celsius. This hot water is piped through the city to be used in homes, restaurants, and even in places where it is cooled down enough to help with physical therapy.

# 6 Village of Monsanto Voted the most Portuguese village in Portugal and built to be intertwined with the landscape is the village of Monsanto. Looking at pictures might be shocking because it looks as if the village was crushed by a landslide. The village was built between, underneath, and around these boulders which have been there for as long as the village has. Monsanto was built in the 12th century and sits on top of a mountain, giving a spectacular view of the Italian countryside.

# 5 Marble Caves of Chile Chico This stark rock shape is located in a peninsula bordering Lake General Carrera along the Chile-Argentina border. It’s one of the marble caves of Chile Chico, a giant outcropping of solid marble that has been slowly carved by water pushing up against it. The marble caves are very far removed from any established paved roads and require a 30 minute guided boat ride to get to. The parts that have been polished by the water reveal a beautiful pearly, swirling pattern hidden inside the rock.

 # 4 The Natural Bridge Most bridges are man-made marvels, but this one was made completely by Mother Nature. It was carved by Cedar Creek which flowed through it over the course of thousands of years. It’s a 65 meter high bridge that is sacred to the Monacan tribe and was later surveyed by American colonists. One of these colonists was George Washington who allegedly carved his initials into the rock.

 # 3 The Blue Forest The Hallerbos, or Blue Forest, is a dream-like forest in Belgium. Most times of the year it’s beautiful, but unremarkable as far as forests go. However, every spring, the forest takes on a whole new quality that makes it seem straight out of a dream. The forest floor blooms with blue bell flowers, completely saturating the place with the densest meadow of bluebells in all of Europe.

# 2 Atlantic Ocean Road We’ve all heard of taking the “scenic route”, but the Atlantic Ocean Road takes that to the next level. This winding road curves over and around the brutal Norwegian Sea. The road connects several tiny islands together to unify the country, and to do this it crosses the beautiful scenery of the Norwegian coasts. Despite several arched bridges and elevated roads, the water will still occasionally crash over the road during storms. If you are lucky and brave enough to cross this road, you will be rewarded with some of the most breathtaking views in the world.

 # 1 Bergpark Wilhelmshöhe This image has been circulating on the internet for at least four years now and is frequently captioned as being somewhere near Poland or Germany. While this actual image is just a photo mockup, there is a similar waterfall castle that actually exists in Kassel Germany. The Bergpark Wilhelmshohe is an old water park that was first built in 1696. It’s equipped to handle 92,000 gallons that flow through the three-century-old pneumatic devices. The water most notable flows down a 350-meter long cascade/slide that makes it look like a castle sitting directly on top of a water park. You can still visit the Bergpark Wilhelmshohe despite its age as it was designated a UNESCO world heritage spot in 2013.

I Survived The Holocaust Twin Experiments


Notorious Doctor of Auschwitz

Mengele's seeming omnipresence at the railroad unloading platform, called the ramp, as well as his fascination with twins, incited images of a mad, evil monster. His ability to elude capture increased his notoriety as well as gave him a mystical and devious persona.

In May 1943, Mengele entered Auschwitz as an educated, experienced, medical researcher. With funding for his experiments, he worked alongside some of the top medical researchers of the time.

Anxious to make a name for himself, Mengele searched for the secrets of heredity. The Nazi ideal of the future would benefit from the help of genetics, according to Nazi doctrine. If so-called Aryan women could assuredly give birth to twins who were sure to be blond and blue-eyed, the future could be saved

Mengele, who worked for Professor Otmar Freiherr von Vershuer, a biologist who pioneered twin methodology in the study of genetics, believed that twins held these secrets.


Auschwitz seemed the best location for such research because of the large number of available twins to use as specimens.


Experiments

Generally, every day, every twin had to have blood drawn.

Besides having blood drawn, the twins underwent various medical experiments. Mengele kept his exact reasoning for his experiments a secret. Many of the twins that he experimented on weren't sure for what purpose the individual experiments were for or what exactly what was being injected or done to them.

The experiments included:
Measurements: The twins were forced to undress and lie next to each other. Then every detail of their anatomy was carefully examined, studied, and measured. What was the same was deemed to be hereditary and was different was deemed to be the result of the environment. These tests would last for several hours.
Blood: Blood tests included mass transfusions of blood from one twin to another.
Eyes: In attempts to fabricate blue eyes, drops or injections of chemicals would be put in the eyes. This often caused severe pain, infections, and temporary or permanent blindness.
Shots and Diseases: Mysterious injections caused severe pain. Injections into the spine and spinal taps were given with no anesthesia. Diseases, including typhus and tuberculosis, would be purposely given to one twin and not the other. When one died, the other was often killed to examine and compare the effects of the disease.
Surgeries: Various surgeries were performed without anesthesia including organ removal, castration, and amputation.​
Death: Dr. Miklos Nyiszli was Mengele's prisoner pathologist. The autopsies became the final experiment. Nyiszli performed autopsies on twins who had died from the experiments or who had been purposely killed just for after-death measurements and examination. Some of the twins had been stabbed with a needle that pierced their heart and then were injected with chloroform or phenol, which caused near immediate blood coagulation and death. Some of the organs, eyes, blood samples and tissues would be sent to Verschuer for further study.

Hurricane IRMA Destroying Lives- NEVER SEEN BEFORE

Hurricane Irma is already being felt on the eastern part of Florida as bands of tropical-storm force winds sweep through the heavily populated areas of Miami, Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach.

The Florida Keys are bracing for a catastrophic direct hit around daybreak Sunday, when the eye is expected to pass over the spindly islands.


The National Hurricane Center says Irma's projected path is continuing to shift to the west, just a few crucial miles, that should keep its eye just off Florida's west coast on a track to hit St. Petersburg, not Miami or even Tampa.

The hurricane's leading edge was already lashing the Florida Keys with hurricane force winds. If the center of the storm keeps moving over warm Gulf of Mexico water, it may regain more strength before making landfall again.

St. Petersburg, like Tampa, has not taken a head-on blow from a major hurricane in nearly a century. Clearwater would be next, and then the storm would finally go inland northwest of Ocala.

The storm currently has top sustained winds of 120 mph (193 kph) and is moving northward at about 6 mph (10 kph).

The World In 2050 [The Real Future Of Earth] - Full BBC Documentary 2017



Can you imagine our world in 2050? By mid-century there will likely be 9 billion people on the planet, consuming ever more resources and leading ever more technologically complex lives. What will our cities be like? How will we eat in the future of Earth? Will global warming trigger catastrophic changes, or will we be able to engineer our way out of the world climate crisis?

In the future world demographic changes will certainly be dramatic. Rockefeller University mathematical biologist Joel Cohen says it's likely that by 2050 the majority of the people in the world will live in urban areas of the earth, and will have a significantly higher average age than people today.

World's MOST Daring Houses


1.Those Who Live In Glass Houses

We think this “Lake House”, designed by architect Mark Dziewulski is daring because it is build onto a cliff and it’s south side is completely covered in glass. As pictured here, you can see stunning windows that reach all the way from the top to the bottom of the home, and we can’t imagine how much money is spent on Windex here. All of the exposed rooms make it look like a real life doll house. The eight thousand six hundred and ninety four square foot five story home is nestled right into the nature of Incline Village in Crystal Bay, Nevada. Homeowners and guests can enjoy gorgeous views of Nevada’s Lake Tahoe from literally every room in the house. Well, except the bathroom. As of 2014,the house was still unowned, but available for a measly forty three million dollars. Sheesh.

National Geographic | The most Luxury Ship In The Sea - Documentary 2017.

The moment you step aboard a luxury cruise ship, a hostess is at your arm proffering a glass of bubbly while a capable room steward offers to heft your carry-on as he escorts you to what will be your home-away-from-home for the next few days. You stow your things (likely in a walk-in closet) and then emerge from your suite to get the lay of the ship. As you walk the decks, friendly crew members greet you ... by name. How can that be? You just set foot onboard!


Swimming Pigs of the Bahamas in 360

Back in February, 7 of the famous "Swimming Pigs" died allegedly due to irresponsible tourists. With the help of Samsung and their Gear 360, we bring you their story through the memories of Captain Joel Smith, a native to the Exumas.

Being born and raised in the Bahamas has allowed Joel to grow up alongside the pigs, pigs he now considers family.

We hope this video serves as a reminder to be conscious of your actions, they can leave a lasting effect on not just the environment you are visiting, but the people who call it home.

Tunnel Of Love in Ukraine

Tunnel Of Love in Ukraine

For those of us who are head over heals in love, here's a new destination to consider. The Tunnel of Love, located in Ukraine, used to be just another train rail section, but eventually turned into one of the most romantic spots on Earth.

As trees were left to grow freely around the rails, the passing train was the only thing shaping its way through. Eventually, by crossing the Kleven village forest back and forth three times a day, the train shaped a closed tunnel according to it's size.

Today the Tunnel of Love is highly popular among lovers: it is believed that if two people are sincere in their love and cross the tunnel while holding each other's hands, their wishes will come true.
