After a day of sitting at my desk, tonight I'm traveling all over the place ... virtually of course, via the web.  Please, join me...

We'll start with Nine wondrous water caves, which include the Great Blue Hole in Belize, above right, and Fingal's Cave in Scotland, at left.  Wow. 

And now to the hottest place on earth, the Danakil Depression, in Ethiopia.  Pretty cool :) 

Speaking of hot, here's Mount Vesuvius, in Italy; it's one of the world's most dangerous volcanos, especially considering how near it is to large population centers like Naples. 

Here's a pretty amazing place, in Kazakstan, where Russian space launches are beautiful and spectacular

Onward to Chile, where we have this incredible photo of lightning on top of a volcano ash cloud

This place is pretty amazing ... Cwm Idwal.  Yes that's how it's spelled, a hanging valley in North Wales, alleged to be 'Darwin's favorite place'. 

And now let's go ... for a drive across Mongolia!  11 days in 4 minutes.  Check this out, unbelievable.  The sheer size is impressive! 

Back to civilization (so called); the incredible renovation of Londan's King's Cross Station is complete.  I've been there several times, always with construction going on :) 

Nearby (comparatively), here we have [a replica of] Noah's Ark!  In Dordrecht, in the Netherlands.  Oh those crazy Dutch... 

Wrapping up, we have 10 must-see design destinations from around the globe.  My favorite in this bunch is also in the Netherlands: Rotterdam Market.  Excellent. 

All in all, we have to conclude, Planet Earth is amazing!  (Especially as seen from the ISS, in this movie.)  Just when you think you've seen it all, you realize 'it all' is so much more than you thought...
