  1. Diogo Alves (1810 – February 19, 1841) was a Spanish-born Portuguese serial killer and robber. Between 1836 and 1840, he killed 70 people. The crimes he committed were all in the area of the Águas Livres Aqueduct, thus earning the title "Aqueduct Murderer". He was sentenced to death and hanged on 19 February 1841, along with one of his accomplices. His head was separated from his body and placed in a flask to preserve it for scientific purposes, and it is now a tourist attraction.

  2. Also known as the blue dragon, this creature is a species of blue sea slug. You could find it in warm waters of the oceans, as it floats on the surface because of a gas-filled sack in its stomach.

  3. The Laguna Salada de Torrevieja is one of the saltiest and largest lakes in Europe. It is known for its bright pink color due to a variety of microorganisms typical of saline environments which has made it one of the most popular tourist attractions in the world. Located just a few miles from Alicante, this lake is found in the beautiful nature reserve of the Costa Blanca just in southeast Spain.

  4. The seven Coloured Earths are a geological formation and prominent tourist attraction found in the Chamarel plain of the Rivière Noire District in south-western Mauritius. It is a relatively small area of sand dunes comprising sand of seven distinct colours (approximately red, brown, violet, green, blue, purple and yellow). The main feature of the place is that since these differently coloured sands spontaneously settle in different layers, dunes acquire a surrealistic, striped colouring. Since the earth was first exposed, rains have carved beautiful patterns into the hillside, creating an effect of earthen meringue.

  5. Erawan Falls are part of the Erawan National Park, a protected area of 210 square miles located in the western part of Thailand, just in the province of Kanchanaburi, a three-hour drive from Bangkok. Within this splendid oasis lies a lush jungle protected by mountains that limit the entrance of the eastern monsoons, along with magnificent waterfalls that give life to seven natural pools of fresh and crystalline water.

  6. Eisriesenwelt is literally translated as "World of Ice Giants". It is a natural monument located near the small Austrian town of Werfen, 15 miles from Salzburg. It is a real hidden treasure, nestled just within Tennengebirge massif at 1,641 meters above sea level. The Eisriesenwelt is a 26-mile-long maze of caves, made of rocks and ice that offer one of the most amazing spectacles of nature.

  7. There is a magical place in Austria called Green Lake, or more exactly "Grüner See". It’s a park in the summer which then turns into a lake with the beautiful color of emerald green. Located in Tragoess, in the Styria region on the foothills of Hochschwab. The Green Lake is a perfect example of how mature can surprise us with amazing phenomena. It is a natural beauty with an ecosystem that is repeated every year with the passing of the seasons, which makes the Green Lake one of the most interesting places in the world.

  8. Some information about this: Salar de Uyuni (or "Salar de Tunupa") is the world's largest salt flat, or playa, at over 10,000 square kilometres (3,900 sq mi) in area. It is in the Daniel Campos Province in Potosí in southwest Bolivia, near the crest of the Andes at an elevation of 3,656 m (11,995 ft) above sea level.

  9. Explanation: Weather phenomena are the most unique ones. Light pillars are one of them. They look otherworldly, like beams of light coming from an extraterrestrial spacecraft. Narrow light paths are visible extending from the sky usually in the Arctic, and also some places in the US and Canada, where it's extremely cold. This illusion is created when cold air turns the moisture in the air to crystals. The crystals then slowly descend towards the ground. When lights from surrounding such as street lights hit the crystals, the effect results in a beautiful, thin and tall light illusion.

  10. This how: The Namib Desert in Namibia is unlike any other desert. There are eerie circular patches spread all across the desert (an area of 2500 km). These bare soil patches are popularly known as fairy circles. The mystery behind this was solved only recently. In 2017, Corina Tarnita, a mathematician stated that the patches are a combination of 2 things. One, the presence of vegetation with the absence of water. This makes the plants compete for resources and eventually disappear, leaving patches. Second, the patches are then taken over by termites. So it is the complex ecosystem that results in such a bizarre phenomenon.

  11. Explaining: Who knew there was another meaning to the world rolling stones, and that too a literal one? Rolling stones or sailing stones or moving stones is a geological phenomenon where rocks move along a smooth valley without any animal or human force. They also leave long trails as they move
