Visit Santorini in Greece

Take a tour of Santorini at Sunset in Santorini, Greece – part of the World’s Greatest Attractions travel video series by GeoBeats. There are few places in the world that are famous simply for their beauty at sunset. The cliff-side island of Santorini in Greece is one of these few places. It sounds almost mythic: a city built across the caldera of a collapsed volcano. This scenic island city positively glows in the evening rays of the setting western sun. (00:59)


Visit the Delos Ruins in Greece

Take a tour of Delos Ruins in Greece – part of the World’s Greatest Attractions series by GeoBeats. Delos island is one of the most revered spots in all of Greece. The island is widely believed by many to be the birthplace of the Greek god Apollo. Today, just homage-paying remnants are left of this deeply holy place. Though spare seeming at first glance, the emptiness is sometimes beautiful and majestic. And sometimes haunting and lonely. Now, Delos attracts world-class archaeologists. (00:56)

Castro’s Nightclubs, Wollongong, Australia – Review

Formerly known as ‘Rustys’, ‘Castros’ is the last stop when all self respecting people have gone home to loved ones or actually care about turning up to work. Like a modern Oscar Wilde novel, Castros is a scrum of the drunk and decadent, vigilante bum pinchers bent on self destruction. They are people unwilling to call it a night fearing and knowing when they wake up it will be to find a stranger in the bed asking for breakfast or lost in foreign streets calling mates to pick them up.
