  • 1. Taormina
    Taormina, Province of Messina

    Standing at the edge of a cliff overlooking the bluest water God can create, behind you thousands of years of history shadowing your thoughts.

  • 2. New Cataract Hotel

    A hotel in the heart of the Nile River Valley. A historical place that reflects both the glamour and the heartache of ancient civilization. With a 1920's feel you will want to wear all white and carry a tennis racket while you enjoy the best breakfast buffett in the world!

  • 3. Oludeniz
    Oludeniz, Mugla Province

    Paragliding off a 6,000 ft mounatin that you thought you you would never reach because both the ride and the driver are insane. Looking at one of the most serene and beautiful lagoons on the world, and you are in Turkey. My favorite country.

  • 4. Cinque Terre
    Cinque Terre, Italian Riviera

    5 small towns each more breathtaking than the last. Walk along a jagged trail to visit each of these treasures while eating gelatto and admiring the endless views of the Italian Riviera.

  • 5. Falling off the world while driving to the Sun

    Going to the Sun Road in Glacier National Park in Montana will reveal vistas and wildlife that will scare and invigorate you. Morraine lakes and glaciated waters...

  • 6. An OPEN MINDED View of the world

    The gay pride parade in san Francisco wil remind you that people are free thinking, open minded and amazing. June 24th 2006.

  • 7. People living with a Reminder

    This street in Belgrade Serbia is littered with the remnants of the NATO bombing campaign of the late 90's. People watch while expereincing a hearty, intelligent and gray community of Eastern Europeans who have seen HELL and fought it.
