Uniting the oceans, the Panama Canal is sometimes considered one of mankind’s greatest accomplishments. It splits the Panama isthmus and unites the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, allowing cargo and passenger ships to pass through. Just imagine, before the construction of the canal, a ship heading from California to New York would have to travel 14,000 miles, circumnavigating the entire continent of South America! Once the Panama Canal was completed, the same voyage took (and still takes) just 6,000 miles.
Uplift your spirit in the land Down Under. It's more than koalas and kangaroos. It's the emotional impact of incredible modern architecture, fascinating aborigine and Maori culture, and miles of breathtaking coastlines. Ascend into the mountains and ancient forests and experience the thrill of exploring active volcanoes. Even shopping will be an exhilarating experience through the fashionable district of Auckland, before stretching out on your veranda and watching the sun wash over Sydney's famed harbor.
Cruise past the famed waves of Australia one day and surf on them the next. See the steaming belly of the Earth from the mouths of active volcanoes. Or dive deep into the magical underworld of the Great Barrier Reef. The only thing you'll risk is having too much fun.
