San Vicente de Chucurí used to be one of the most dangerous towns in Colombia 20 years ago and nowadays it is one of the safest places. It used to be controlled by the FARC and other guerrilla groups, and the ELN guerrilla even had its origin in the town. Today the inhabitants of San Vicente are very proud that they combatted the guerrilla groups. The museum Casa Memoria Histórica honors the victims of the conflict and shows a very sad but organized and interesting timeline of the events that happened there.The region of San Vicente de Chucurí is the largest cacao producer in Colombia producing approx. 13% of the country´s cacao. The cacao farms are well organized and can show and explain you the entire process from the plant to the chocolate. For people that want to spend an adventurous day the Airplane Cave just 25 minutes from the town can be visited. The Airplane Cave is also a place with various swimming holes with clear water, little waterfalls and even natural waterslides.

And if they see, will they know? How will you feel something done for heaven by judging it from the earth? How will you imagine the speed … the Earth’s landscape … or the air that will cut that machine? Some things have no explanation, just feelings. Like “Prohodna”, one of the most impressive caves with the longest tunnel in Bulgaria.
Chase Baker, Renaissance man and adventurer is back. When a flirtatious, beautiful young woman by the name of Andrea Gallo claims to be a fan of his pulp novels, Chase can't resist reciprocating in the lusty attraction. But that night, while the two enjoy a romantic evening of wine and love in his Florence apartment, he is suddenly kidnapped from his bed by two thugs who turn out not only to be working for Great Britain's infamous MI-16, but also working side-by-side with Gallo. Duped once again, Chase wants to bid his newfound romance a quick "arrivederci" and be on his way. But when they tell him they desperately need his help to uncover a legendary cave in the Northern Italian forest before a team of Russian and Iranian hardliners do, he feels compelled to help out, regardless of their rather unsound method of capturing his attention. But what's so special about the cave? It's said to be the very same cave that Leonardo da Vinci discovered as a young man back in the mid-15th century, and where he not only learned the secrets behind his many inventions, including the airplane, but where he was exposed to the very meaning behind God's divine plan for mankind. Why is the MI-16 so desperate to uncover the cave before the bad guys do? Whoever discovers it first will possess the knowledge and the power to take over the world. 1. Language: English.

A crash landing at a remote island airstrip...a scary encounter with an octopus...green ants that defend their tree by attacking anyone who touches it...a mysterious lava-tube cave with hikers' flashlights floating like fireflies down into its blackness...fruit bats noisily lobbing mangos onto your cabin's tin roof...the beauties - and dangers - of the crocodile-infested Kakadu National Park...a rugby match in Northern Territory (and why Aussie girls never root for their teams)... In this colorful and remarkable book, written by a colorful and remarkable woman pilot, you'll find the most enjoyable way to discover Australia - by flying a light airplane to its places of greatest interest while watching the exotic landscape unroll beneath you: vistas of giant paisley patterned earth, caused by underlying salt strata; stunning views of red landscapes, uplifted and contorted during the earth's primordial boil; the enormously long white beaches of Western Australia, lonesome and edged by brilliant aquas; and the Indian Ocean to the south, marked by hundreds of miles of cliffs (whales breed there.... You could get lucky). You don't have to be a pilot to enjoy this book. The author also wrote it for nonflyers, in nontechnical terms, to let you see amazing things that pilots experience from their very special perspective. 1. Language: English.
