3. Parícutin (or Volcán de Parícutin, also accented Paricutín) is a cinder cone volcano in the Mexican state of Michoacan, close to a lava-covered village of the same name. The volcano is unique in the fact that its evolution from creation to extinction was witnessed, observed and studied by human beings.

5. Pulpit Rock Preikestolen, Norway – With a 604-meter drop from a flat plateau down to Lysefjord with no safety railings, this is not a place for vertigo sufferers.

6. Cascate del Mulino, Saturnia, Tuscany, Italy – Steaming hot spring water comes out of the ground at 37.5 C and cascades over a series of small waterfalls into dozens of pools on consecutive levels.

Brazil was always a great tourist destination. But it is expected that there will be a lot more travel agencies to organize traveling to Brazil in 2014. Main reason for this is the World Cup of course. But, besides it, there are plenty of nice things to visit in Brazil! Here is a list of some of them:

1. Ouro Preto is one of Brazil’s best-preserved colonial towns. It means “black gold” and it was founded at the end of the 17th century. It quickly became the epicenter of a new gold rush in the state of Minas Gerais.

2. The Pantanal is the world’s largest wetland, lying mostly in Western Brazil but extending into Bolivia and Paraguay as well. Famous for its wildlife, it is one of Brazil’s major tourist attractions. Unlike the Amazon rainforest, in the Pantanal you are virtually guaranteed to actually see the wildlife.

3. The Rio Carnival attracts two million people per day on the streets and almost half a million foreigners during its 4 day celebration. The Carnival is all over the place, in the streets and squares, bars, clubs and all other venues in Rio, concluding in the spectacular Rio Samba Parade at the Sambadrome.

4. Christ the Redeemer is the famous statue of Jesus Christ in Rio de Janeiro. Located at the peak of the 700 meters (2,300 ft) Corcovado mountain, it provides a sweeping panorama from the interior of Guanabara bay to the north, to Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas to the south.

Best winter destinations

Many people prefer cold weather over hot weather. Mostly because there are a lot of great winter destinations that make winter lovers relax and enjoy the time. Here is a list of travel destinations that are great in winter:

1. Swiss Alps. To experience off-piste glacier slopes without the crowds, spend the night on the mountainside at Whitepod, five geodesic domes high above the town of Villars, just east of Lake Geneva. Although the tents have no running water or electricity, they’re the height of eco-chic, with wood-burning stoves, high-tech insulation, organic linens, and iPods.

2. Aspen. WHY There’s nothing like making fresh tracks down a mountain—and with the opening of the Deep Temerity lift at Aspen Highlands, skiers now have 180 previously untouched acres to play on.

3. Vail. It lures thousands of skiers and snowboarders every year. And it’s easy to see why: Vail Ski Resort contains about 5,289 skiable acres, making it the USA’s largest single-mountain resort. But make your travel plans well in advance — you’re not the only one yearning to hit the slopes.

4. Telluride. Vail and Aspen are luxurious, but Telluride’s rustic charm is equally enchanting. With 1,700 skiable acres, the Telluride Ski Resort is the main place to shred powder. But it’s the rare combination of 300 sunny days and 300 inches of snow each year that makes Telluride a skier’s dream.
