Several of the apostles as seen from the helicopter
One of the most iconic Australian Adventures is the Great Ocean Road of Southern Victoria. The highlight of the Great Ocean Road tour is the 12 Apostles, and the best way to see them is by helicopter. I personally had never ridden in a helicopter before this, but had always wanted to. On our tour they announced we had the option to either walk down and check them out, or pay an additional $70 and fly over the 12 Apostles by helicopter. This was a no brainer for me, although that's a lot of money, it doesn't seem bad for a helicopter ride, and it's one of those once in a lifetime opportunities you can only regret not doing.

A view of Everest and the surrounding Himalayas
There are a lot of videos out there both climber made and commercial of Everest, Everest Base Camp, and the entire Himalaya Region. I spent a lot of time searching online and these were the highlights I came up with. Sadly there has been a lot of tragedy on the mountain over the years, so some of the videos are quite sad, but there is also some amazing scenery, interesting facts, and heart warming stories portrayed in these videos. If you know of other good Everest videos please post links in the comments and I'll add them to the collection.

Reactor Number 4 – The Reactor which exploded in 1986
On April 25, 1986 the area surrounding Chernobyl was full of action. The following day, everything came to a halt when Chernobyl Reactor #4 blew. Millions of dollars in land and equipment were left as people simply hoped to escape with their lives. 25 years later with satellite and internet technology, we can explore the ruins of Chernobyl and its surroundings from our home computer. Below are some interesting things I've found.
