Just an amazing walk around the World
Daily walking can reduce elevated cholesterol levels and blood pressure and improve digestion, while for others walking can be a social activity and a chance to meet friends with similar interests and spend an enjoyable time while exercising. Some people take their doctor’s advice about taking a walk daily. This is what happens when you take a walk around the world.
1 The Berlin Wall, Germany
This memorial is an excellent opportunity to see the section of the Berlin Wall that is still standing and to wander around the death strip, the grassy no-man’s-land that separated the inner wall on the east side from the larger outer wall on the west. It’s a fascinating trip through modern European history, with all the memorials for those who died trying to climb over the wall, reminding tourists of the dark history of the place and how politics can divide a nation, and even a family.
2 The Loire Valley, France
The Loire is considered Europe’s last untamed river and so for this reason in 2000, UNESCO gave official recognition to the Loire Valley for its architectural heritage and its breathtaking, untouched natural environment. The picturesque landscape would guarantee you a walk to remember.
3 Aphrodite and Adonis Walk, Cyprus
The gorgeous Akamas peninsula, on the northwest tip of Cyprus is like the heaven itself. The peninsula owes its exceptional character not only to its attractive, rich natural landscapes, but also to the vast wealth of Hellenic history and mythology, dating back three thousand years. Here, you can see the rock under which Aphrodite, the goddess of love was born from the sea foam.

5 Margaret Island, Hungary

It is a great place to escape after a long tiring day in the big city.
6 Bryce Canyon, USA
