The cave divers hoped the pool would lead them down through flooded galleries and passages to the base of the glacier, but the pool was only a few meters deep.

Photo by @stevewinterphoto | Over the past three decades, the oldest and thickest ice in the Arctic has declined by a stunning 95 percent, according to NOAA. The sea in the Arctic has changed dramatically, which impacts polar bears, walruses, and other Arctic creatures. If ice continues to melt, the planet will warm further as the dark ocean water absorbs large amounts of solar heating that used to be deflected by the bright white ice. We followed this polar bear as we sailed by in the Icebreaker "M/V Kinfish." @natgeoimagecollection

48 hours in Toronto 🇨🇦⁣

One of my favorite travel hacks is the stopover - where you break up a longer journey with a quick stop in the middle. This past weekend @expedia invited me to do a 48hr stopover in Toronto w/ @seetorontonow and @aircanada (link in bio for more info) - scroll through for some scenes from day 1 where we hit up the old downtown, distillery district, Queen street west, city hall and a Maple Leafs hockey game. If you have stopover questions or Toronto questions let me know and I’ll do my best to answer them in the comments 📝#torontostopover #openyourcuriosity

Oh and a big shoutout to @zachdriftwood for shooting the bts video of me at graffiti alley - a true Toronto classic 🎨

Toronto, Ontario

I was thinking of which lesser known destinations to feature. The truth is, there are a LOT of them. The planet is littered with amazing places few people bother to visit.

This week I really want to feature places that evoke a response of “WHY DIDN’T I KNOW ABOUT THIS??” One of those places is again in Italy. Most of the attractions in Italy either date back to the Roman period, or to the Renaissance. This place dates back to the 18th Century, which isn’t one of the best known periods in Italian history.

Back then, most royals in Europe had Versailles envy. The palace of the King of France was the standard by which palaces were judged. Many other monarchs created palaces which emulated Versailles. Schönbrunn Palace in Vienna is probably one of the best examples of this.

The King of Naples didn’t want to be outdone, so they created the Italian version of Versailles.
The Royal Palace of Caserta.

When I visited, I was on a group tour of Italy, and only one other person on the tour bothered to come with me. When I got there, there were almost no non-Italian tourists.

In terms of total volume, it is the largest royal palace in the world. The palace is five stories tall, has over 1,200 rooms, and has over 1,700 windows.
The gardens are what is really amazing. There is an aqueduct running through the garden which is a total of 38km long! From the back of the palace it extends out to the horizon.

Getting to Caseata is actually really easy. The train station is literally outside the palace.
