Sardinia’s ‘100 Towers Path,’ one of Italy’s most spectacular coastal hikes, offers breathtaking views and a chance to enjoy the local cuisine.

The 100 Towers Path, a hiking trail on Sardinia's southern-tip that takes hikers past ancient architecture, stunning beaches and the island's 1,000 kilometers of oceanfront terrain, might not be Italy's most famous hike, but it is certainly one of its most spectacular. The full experience takes 45-60 days to complete on average; however, it can also be broken up into smaller trips. The principal features, as the way's name recommends, are the 100 stone post towers that line Sardinia's shores. Worked over the 1500s and 1700s to guard against foe attacks - - privateers included - - most have fallen into creepy ruin, however some have been changed into beacons and confidential homes. Once wandered by fighters, vendors, explorers, ministers and looters, the way compensates the present c...

What It’s Like To Navigate The World’s Shortest Commercial Runway.

Flying into Saba is not something for the faint of heart. The vertical slopes and tall cliffs of this five-square-mile island in the Caribbean are not only dangerous to pilots, but also prevent them from touching back down on their landing gear. However, Juancho E. Yrausquin Airport offers an inspiring view of the island and a solvable dilemma: its only flat piece of land. The Juancho E. Yrausquin Airport on the Caribbean island of Saba is the world's shortest commercial runway at only 1,300 feet (about 400 meters), 900 feet of which are usable. Sheer drops into the sea at either end add an extra layer of excitement to the arrival on what is acknowledged as being the shortest commercial runway in the world. Juancho E. Yrausquin Airport is something of a holy grail for avgeeks, but it i...
