Exhausted dog sleeps after mountain hike

Kira, a 7-year-old cocker spaniel from Sweden, climbed a mountain in Norway and finally reached the peak at 639 meters above the ocean. With the most amazing view and sunset close to the area of MagicLofoten, she decided it was time for a power nap. She probably missed out of the best sunset of her life!

Travelling friends find man sleeping on horse next to road

The Kalahari region in the Northern Cape province of South Africa is a special place, characterized by its vast semi-arid wilderness and farmland areas. It also hosts the lowest density of people in the country. Life in the Kalahari runs at its own pace and many will say it is a place still stuck in its own time. It is not strange to see many people still using horses or donkey carts as a mode of transport. Today this is still the only safe and reliable mode of transport available to many people in the rural areas. My friend Rudi and I were driving a long stretch of dirt road from their farm in the Kalahari to town which was an hour’s drive away. It was late Saturday afternoon and we were on our way to a social function in town. In the distance we noticed something rather odd. There was a lone horse standing next to the road in the middle of nowhere. As we came closer we quickly realized what was going on. On the back of this horse was a man lying, passed out and not moving. We decided to check it out and stopped next to the horse. At first we called, whistled and hit the hooter of the vehicle a few times to see if we might get any reaction. The obviously very loyal and obedient horse briefly looked at us but no movement came from the man. My friend Rudi decided to get out and investigate. I warned him not to go too close to the back of the horse as it might kick him. Rudi walked up to the horse and shook the man a few times while asking if he was OK. Suddenly the guy woke up, looking much disorientated and confused. His response was that he was on his way home. At the end of the video Rudi said to the guy in Afrikaans, “OK, the traffic light is green, you can go now” and off he went in a gallop on the back of his very trusty horse. It sure looked like the guy had a little too much to drink and passed out on the back of his horse while on the way home. Maybe he was just tired after a long journey and decided to take a power nap next to the road. None the less, it was one of the strangest and funniest things we have seen in a long time.

Fog swallows entire valley from top of volcano45s

Fog swallows entire valley from top of volcano

The Pululahua Volcano is situated at the equator near Quito Ecuador. One of the country's largest and most spectacular volcano's. Now dormant, the volcano is home to the world's only inhabited volcanic crater. It is five kilometres (3 miles) across and is 3,000 metres (9,000 feet) ab-ve sea level. Pululahua means "cloud of water" and it's wonder and mystery draw huge crowds each year to experience the beauty. The crater holds lush vegetation which is often covered by dense and mystical fog. The view can be enjoyed by walking down trails, or riding horses, or simply by looking out over the vista from the top of the volcano. Famous for it's rolling fog, the volcano and crater are a spectacular sight, especially in the late morning. A camera set up as the fog started to roll in captured the scene as the mountains and fields below disappeared under a blanket of eerily drifting fog. Within 20 minutes, the entire valley was swallowed and only a dense cloud could be seen. The wind and updraft even carried some of the water vapor up the side of the volcano where the camera was stationed. Speeding up the film creates a dramatic and breath taking effect as the valley and low mountains disappear in under one minute. The crater below is home to numerous farms and it provides a perfect location for agriculture with excellent soil for crops. This is a surprising thing, considering hot lava once flowed over these grounds, many years ago. This is a highly ranked tourist site, with hotels, hostels, restaurants and a few shops to provide visitors with all that they need for an extended stay. Of course, the view from the available rooms is stunning. Descending from the top of the volcano to the valley below is challenging, as the trail is steep and treacherous. Those who dare to take the trip down will be challenged even more with the long, steep climb back up.

Mom has comical reaction to riding in full speed Lamborghini

At a recent charity event, exotic super car owners opened their car doors to the crowd, offering a full throttle thrill ride on a closed track for a donation to Cops for Cancer. This generous lady made a donation for both her and her son to experience the Lamborghini Huracan Performante, one of the fastest road legal automobiles in the world. A camera was installed in the car to record the enthusiasm and the reactions of the passengers. As we can see by the smile and the shock, this was more than she bargained for as she shouts with excitement and holds on for dear life. There were many beautiful machines available for this event, including Ferraris, Audis, Mercedes, Nissan GTRs, and a few Lamborghinis. This particular ride was provided by Ghostrider, an anonymous and mysterious figure who is a legend in the car scene. He's a known philanthropist and driving force behind many charity events, although very few people know his true identity. His car is a lime green Lamborghini with a V10 engine that boasts an incredible horsepower. It will accelerate from 0-60mph in a mere 2.9 seconds, which is less time than all but the most powerful street motorcycles.

Divers swim alongside critically endangered animal

“Come here, swim over here to me!” Brent was thinking as he hovered over the beautiful coral reef 55 feet below the surface. Remaining as motionless as possible, Brent and his dive buddy wife Elsa watched as the Hawksbill turtle swam up to the surface for air. Hoping the Hawksbill turtle would descend close enough for them to get a nice look and take some photos and video, they watched in anticipation. Hawksbill turtles are critically endangered and are of limited numbers so seeing them is a treat. Located 40 miles off the northern coast of Honduras, Roatan is a small Caribbean Island that is famous for snorkeling and scuba diving. Being 40 miles long and 5 miles wide Roatan is definitely a fairly small island. After approximately 2 minutes, the Hawksbill Turtle began its descent into a valley of coral searching out his next meal of sponge. Searching the cracks and crevices of the reef that flowed towards the sandy bottom, the Hawksbill Turtle finally turned towards Brent. Elsa also was recording some footage of the turtle as he swam right in front of her heading towards Brent. Actually having to back away as the turtle approached her, Elsa back paddled while avoiding to touch the reef with her hands. Touching live coral with bare skin can cause it to die in certain circumstances so this is avoided. Heading directly at Brent as though he had called it to come like we do with our pet dogs, he was exhilarated as the Hawksbill began closing in on him. Having to back paddle as well, it was quite a chore keeping from impacting the reef as well as keeping the turtle in the view finder of the camera. “This is the first time I have ever had a sea turtle come this close to me on its own. To have him swim within inches of my face was amazing” Brent explained. As the Hawksbill closed in, the light from Brent’s camera setup illuminated the turtles shell showing off how gorgeous it was. At 55 feet below the surface the natural light from the sun is depleted so colors are greatly reduced making a lot of corals, fish and other creatures appear grey and faded. Hit all these mentioned beautiful creatures of the sea with a source of light and it is as though a painting has just been converted from black and white to color. It is amazing to see this change Brent mentioned. Running low on air, Brent and Elsa had to surface and were they ever excited to tell the others back at the scuba shop what they had seen. Not everyone gets this kind of close encounter. The animals are all wild so it is just “luck of the draw” as to what divers see on each dive. On this day, it was definitely an amazing dive during their short visit to Roatan. Back on shore it was time for Brent and Elsa to head back to the cruise ship. Onward they went to visit other stops on their Caribbean cruise.
