The world offers a great abundance of amazing places: breathtakingly beautiful natural wonders, culturally significant sites, and unforgettable cities and villages, many of which we’ve already showcased. As Halloween draws near, we feel a change of tone is in order – so here are some of the world’s scariest places you can actually travel to: 10. Lome Voodoo Bazaar You’d probably think voodoo comes from the Caribbean, but it actually originated in Africa – and the great Bazaar in the Togolese capital of Lome seems to be the modern epicenter of the practice.

Acclaimed beer manufacturer Guinness is expanding its lineup with what it calls an ultra-premium beer brewed with both beer and whisky malt, which is then meant to be served in stemless champagne flutes. Called Guinness The 1759 (the year Arthur Guinness started brewing the legendary ale), it is the first of the Guinness Signature Series, which will comprise a range of limited edition, high-end beers. The release was timed to coincide with the holiday season, when people are more inclined to not only celebrate, but also to dig deeper in their pockets in order to meet this beer’s relatively steep asking price.
Gresso has already released a durable case for the iPhone 6 made from aluminum (which we’ve talked about a few weeks ago), but if you really want to make sure your new device is well protected, you can now get this extra-sturdy titanium case created by the Miami-based company. Provided, of course, you have a couple grand to spare after you got your smartphone. Tests have shown that the Gresso titanium case can withstand an amazing 417 pounds of force before bending (if you recall, the aluminum version could weather 300 pounds, quite respectable, but small in comparison) –so it’s hard to
In order to mark its 60th anniversary, a milestone it will in 2015, Porsche Club of America, the largest single-brand club in the world with over 100,000 members, has decided to release a special version of Chopard’s Mille Miglia timepiece. Just a tiny fraction of those members could potentially own one of these watches, since the release is limited to just 66 pieces. It’s no surprise Chopard is the watchmaker responsible for this limited edition: the Swiss brand announced its sponsorship deal with Porsche Motorsport earlier this year and it is already the main partner of Mille Miglia (and has been so
ATS recently relocated from its previous home in Italy to the Canary Islands, but that didn’t seem to hinder the small, but highly-regarded sports car manufacturer, which has recently released a great new road-legal track car called the Sport 490 Stradale. The vehicle is powered by a 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine borrowed from a Suzuki Hayabusa superbike, which outputs a very respectable 235 hp. This allows the remarkably light vehicle (which tips the scales at a bit over 1,000 pounds) to go from 0 to 62 mph in a lightning-fast 3.0 seconds, on its way to a top speed exceeding 143 mph (230
Even by the Seychelles` standards, Desroches Island is an amazing place. Secluded and pristine, Desroches is a private island, part of the Amirante Archipelago, which has underwent just enough development to make it an excellent destinations for travelers, while also maintaining its otherworldly charm. Coconut palms watch over the white sandy beaches which surround this beautiful stretch of land, as they merge with the warm, crystal clear waters of the Indian Ocean. You could not ask for a better location to spend a relaxing, unforgettable vacation. Tempting as it may be, you won’t have to sleep under the open sky once you
Luxury and location are the keywords for this amazing property on the picturesque island of St. Lucia, in the southeastern Caribbean. Set atop a promontory appropriately called Lookout Point, 300 feet above the sea, the home offers jawdroppingly-beautiful, 180 degree views from every bedroom and terrace – a true feast for the eyes. There are a total of 5 bedrooms, all en suite. The most impressive of these is the spacious master bedroom, featuring a king size four poster bed (made locally out of white cedar), louvered shutters, and double doors opening to a front balcony with views of the Pitons. There
Since ancient times, light has held rich symbolic meaning for humanity. From agriculture, to literature the sun and its light have sustained and inspired mankind, becoming deeply associated with life, truth, and beauty. All of this symbolic meaning isn’t lost on Bulgari, an Italian brand which often celebrates classical Greek and Roman traditions. This is how the dazzling LVCEA timepiece for women was created.
