Hiking is one of the main summer activities in Switzerland and the beautiful mountain panorama is always worth the detour. But this time, we wanted to see more than that and decided to visit the Aletsch Arena in the Bernese Alps to hike along the famous Aletsch Glacier, the greatest (and probably most accessible) glacier of the Alps.
The Pointe du Raz is almost but not quite the westernmost point of France but its huge waves hitting the beautiful high cliffs, its strong wind and its old light tower, named the "Little Old Lady" make this place a popular spot for tourists and locals.

Machu Picchu is globally known for being one of the modern Seven World Wonders. Indeed, it is the best preserved known inca city in the world and surrounded by a stunning mountain panorama. This is why every day 6000 visitors crowd into the site. In order to accommodate all these tourists, a whole city, called Agua calientes, was built from scratch. Restaurants, Bars, Hotels and souvenir shops are supposed to be everything the modern tourist's heart could wish for and, all in all, it feels like spending the night at Disney Land. So is this historic Inca site really worth a visit or is it just too crowded to enjoy?
The famous Lake Titicaca is the biggest lake in South America, the highest navigable lake in the world. Indeed, its altitude of 3800m is quite breathtaking and not just becuse of its beautiful landscape. Part of the lake is located in Peru whether the other part belongs to Bolivia. On the peruvian side of the lake, its main city Puno, its authentic villages around Socca and its floating reed islands of the Uros are definitely worth a visit.
