Back in the 50’s, Easterners of the US used to arrive in Wickenburg, Arizona to put on their cowboy boots and settle for a month or so in a so-called guest ranch.

At 700ft in length, 170ft in depth and 270ft in width, the world’s first flying hotel is reminiscent of a craft seen in the children’s TV program ‘Thunderbirds’.

Instead, the French invention is set to make many headlines around its year of completion, expected to be 2020.
After the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbour on December 7 1941, Oak Ridge did not yet even exist. It was an infamous event which forced the Americans to enter the greatest war our planet has ever known.

This meant that around 75,000 people had to keep the secret in an area of Tennessee called Oak ridge.
Medical tourism is a profitable business in many countries. Patients from developed countries of Europe or North America travel to developing countries where the treatments are provided at considerably lower cost.

The black continent has been going through many changes in the past decades. The political instability together with poverty present some parts of Africa in a very negative light and – no wonder – tourists are not exactly hurrying to explore the continent criss-cross. Generalization, however, is a big mistake in the context of Africa as there are many jewels which now only begin to glisten. One of such countries is the diverse Tanzania.
The Caribbean is undoubtedly one of the most praised holiday destinations in the world. Its sparkling waters are swarming with a wondrous diversity of fish, the days are full of sunshine and the beaches are endlessly inviting. Holiday in the Caribbean is simply an unforgettable experience. If there is one slightly negative aspect, it is the fact that there are always tourists around. The owners of Peter Island in the British Virgin Islands quickly realized that and turned their island into a unique haven of tranquility.
Mongolia is one of those countries anyone considers twice before actually visiting them. On the one hand, its character is very unique and the element of surprise is always present.
