Open-sided dining areas overlook a lagoon where elephants lumber through the
While Africa brims with unspoiled landscapes written in big, bold strokes, Botswana's Okavango Delta proves especially dazzling.

Sertig, a hamlet near Davos. In the backround are Mt. Plattenfluh and Mt. Hoc
Switzerland is a paradox. It features breathtakingly pristine mountain, glacier and lake scenery alongside splendidly engineered craftsmanship, as evidenced by its watchmakers and prompt trains.
