    Fun fact: Like snowflakes and human fingerprints, no two giraffes have the same spot pattern. Just one more reason we love these animals.

    Full Bloom
    Every year, tulip fields in Lisse begin to bloom in March and are in peak bloom by late April. The Dutch produce a total of 4.3 billion tulip bulbs each year, of which 53 percent (2.3 billion) are grown into cut flowers. Of these, 1.3 billion are sold in the Netherlands as cut flowers and the remainder are exported.

    Hail, Caesar!
    Hail, Caesar!
    You’d never guess from this photo, but the city of Ronda, Spain, is perched high atop two cliffs and connected by three bridges that reach deep into the El Tajo canyon. The city, established in the time of Julius Caesar, has survived centuries of shifting geological conditions and stands strong to this day.

    The Venetian island of Burano is an intricately color-coordinated city. Its buildings were originally painted brightly so local fishermen could see them when navigating through the fog, but now the colors are a major part of Burano’s appeal. Today, homeowners can only repaint their property with permission from the government.
