If you visit the Jardim Botânico in Brazil, you’ll likely stumble upon a mini-waterfall, friends with many legs, and exotic botanical life.
If you don’t live in Boston, you’ve probably never seen the city like this.
You know you’re in Lake Tahoe when…your ears start popping from the altitude and winding roads, but you can’t take your eyes off the view.
