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.
