Top 10 Places to Visit in French Guiana
Top 10 Places to Visit in French Guiana
Deep in equatorial South America, French Guiana (also known as Guyane) is a department of France bordering Brazil, Suriname, and the Atlantic. It's a land where old abuts new in striking incongruity. Dense rainforests shelter centuries-old indigenous villages, while rockets zoom overhead, launched from the country's lucrative Space Centre. The capital, Cayenne, is a melting pot of French, Asian, African, and Brazilian cultures, and if you visit during Carnival, between Epiphany and Ash Wednesday, you can join in the celebrations with parades every weekend.

Offbeat Canadian Destinations

Off the Beaten Path Canadian Destinations
Canada is a very large country and there are many large cities to explore and places off the beaten path within the cities, but I'm going to take you outside the cities.
My favorite place off the beaten path in Canada is without doubt, the North shore of Lake Superior. The north shore of Superior is full of legends and stories as well as natural beauty. A great place to hike and a great place to relax.
Another place I love is the Bay of Fundy, which is part of Nova Scotia as well as New Brunswick. If you circumnavigate the Bay of Fundy, which you can because there's a ferry between Digby and St. John - you have fine food, you can go whale watching, you can walk on the floor of the ocean and you can ride the tidal bore which is wilder than rafting, white water rafting. So it's a very fun place.
Another place in the East, is Gros Moor National Park in Newfoundland. This is a forgotten area of Canada that just too many people do not get to, but it's beauty rivals the Rockies it's stunningly gorgeous, and while in Newfoundland if you can, hop over to Saint-Pierre and Miquelon and you're going to France by taking a ferry. It's just a short little ferry.
Going to the west coast, Tofino is just a wonderful place, wonderful beaches in Tofino. It's not quite off the beaten path because it's been discovered a little bit more but it's definitely worth the trip.
And then one very long path that everyone should take at least once is a drive across the Prairies. The Prairies are beautiful in their own way, they're known as big sky country and it's just gorgeous. Really it should be explored and enjoyed.

Wallis and Futuna Tour Guide | Vacances à Wallis-et-Futuna Travel Gears
Get upto 69% discount for rooms reservation
Wallis and Futuna, officially the Territory of the Wallis and Futuna Islands, is a French island collectivity in the South Pacific between Tuvalu to the northwest, Fiji to the southwest, Tonga to the southeast, Samoa to the east, and Tokelau to the northeast. Though both French and Polynesian, Wallis and Futuna is distinct from the entity known as French Polynesia.
Its land area is 142.42 km2 (54.99 sq mi) with a population of about 12,000. Mata-Utu is the capital and biggest city. The territory is made up of three main volcanic tropical islands along with a number of tiny islets, and is split into two island groups that lie about 260 km (160 mi) apart, namely the Wallis Islands (Uvea) in the northeast, and the Hoorn Islands (also known as the Futuna Islands) in the southwest, including Futuna Island proper and the mostly uninhabited Alofi Island.
The overwhelming majority (99%) of the people in Wallis and Futuna are Catholics, served by their own Roman Catholic Diocese of Wallis and Futuna. The culture of Wallis and Futuna is Polynesian, and is very similar to the cultures of its neighbouring nations Samoa and Tonga. The Wallisian and Futunan cultures share very similar components in language, dance, cuisine and modes of celebration.
Fishing and agriculture are the traditional practices and most people live in traditional fate houses in an oval shape made of thatch.
Basilica of St. Peter Channel in Poi – Futuna. Unusual, impressive church building with stepped tower, built in 1986. Built to commemorate a martyr Pierre Channel, who was killed here in 1841.

The settlement is surrounded by a massive stone wall with several entrances. The central structure is rised stone platform – Talietumu, a shrine. It is rised 5 m high and is 80 m long. The complex architecture of the structure has important symbolic meaning.

TAHITI 🏝️| DRIVING TOUR to MUSIC | TEAHUPOO beach | AREMITI CAR FERRY back to MOOREA
This video begins with us disembarking off the Aremiti car ferry from MOOREA then showing parts of our coastal loop drive around the entire island of Tahiti, including walking stops for photos (approx 5.5-hours). The island of Tahiti has two parts: the larger, northwestern part of the island is called Tahiti Nui, and the smaller, southeastern part is called Tahiti Iti. We rented a car at AVIS across from the ferry dock on Mo'orea (pronounced mo-oh-RAY-ah), and we boarded the ferry in Mo'orea with our rental car at 6:00am (:30-minute ferry ride arriving approx. 6:30am). Our drive included stops for photos in a few spots, including the beach at Teahupo'o village which has a distant view of the iconic surf wave by the same name. Big wave surfers from across the globe surf at Teahupo'o, located on the Tahiti Iti section of the island. According to an article on surfertoday.com ( Teahupoo is one of the heaviest and most powerful waves in the world
Many in North America pronounce it CHOpoo or CHOPES, but there is not a ch sound in Polynesian. The article designates three components to the name:
te (Tahitian/Polynesian) = the (English)
ahu (Tahitian/Polynesian) = pile, central stone, raised platform, mound, altar, heap (English)
po'o (Tahitian/Polynesian) = head, front end, director, father (English)
Loosely translated as the pile of heads, the heap of heads, or the hot head.
Teahupo'o is on Transworld Surf's list of the 'Top 10 Deadliest Waves'. Check out videos of the wave on YouTube, it's an iconic, legendary wave for the best surfers in the world and the brave at heart 🏄♂️

La mythique route 66
La mythique route 66 sur
La route la plus mythique
Dans les années 20, la mythique route 66 traversait une grande partie des Etats-Unis. Elle partait de Chicago et débouchait, 3 500 kilomètres plus loin, sur le Pacifique à Santa Monica près de Los Angeles. Cette voie de communication a permis à des centaines de milliers d'Américains attirés par le soleil de déménager vers l'ouest et le sud-ouest du pays.
De nos jours, seules quelques portions existent encore qui longent souvent l'Interstate 40. Délaissée, la route 66 est un moyen de découvrir une autre Amérique à la fois historique et intemporelle, permet de traverser des villes fantômes, de s'arrêter quelques instants siroter une bière dans un motel, de rencontrer des personnages insolites, et parfois de se retrouver dans un décor de cinéma. En effet, quelques irréductibles comme des motards ou des amateurs d'armes tentent de s'inventer un passé un peu désuet dans une Amérique qui doute d'elle même. Ce documentaire offre au téléspectateur un voyage au coeur d'un pays décalé, vécu et rêvé, celui de l'Amérique de la route 66...
【4K】Footage | Sailing from SAINT-MARTIN to ANGUILLA ..:: Caribbean 2017
The final 4K speedboat footage of Saint-Martin to Anguilla with my GoPro 6; project finished and uploaded on 2018-12-21 - enjoy! :-)
Media data: This video (5:08min playtime) is an extraction of my 32.5GB Anguilla 4K Video Footage. Footage on Sale. For inquiries, contact me via E-Mail, my Blog, Facebook or Instagram Page.
Anguilla: Anguilla is a British overseas territory in the Caribbean. It is one of the most northerly of the Leeward Islands in the Lesser Antilles, lying east of Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands and directly north of Saint Martin. The territory consists of the main island of Anguilla, approximately 16 miles (26 km) long by 3 miles (4.8 km) wide at its widest point, together with a number of much smaller islands and cays with no permanent population. The islands capital is The Valley. The total land area of the territory is 35 square miles (91 km2), with a population of approximately 14,764 (2016 estimate). Anguilla has become a popular tax haven, having no capital gains, estate, profit, sales, or corporate taxes. In April 2011, faced with a mounting deficit, it introduced a 3% Interim Stabilisation Levy, Anguillas first form of income tax. Anguilla also has a 0.75% property tax. [wikipedia]

A country is a region identified as a distinct entity in political geography. A country may be an independent sovereign state or one that is occupied by another state, as a non-sovereign or formerly sovereign political division, or a geographic region associated with sets of previously independent or differently associated peoples with distinct political characteristics. Regardless of the physical geography, in the modern internationally accepted legal definition as defined by the League of Nations in 1937 and reaffirmed by the United Nations in 1945, a resident of a country is subject to the independent exercise of legal jurisdiction.
Sometimes the word country is used to refer both to sovereign states and to other political entities, while other times it refers only to states. For example, the CIA World Factbook uses the word in its Country name field to refer to a wide variety of dependencies, areas of special sovereignty, uninhabited islands, and other entities in addition to the traditional countries or independent states.
The word country comes from Old French cuntrée, itself derived from Vulgar Latin (terra) contrata (“(land) lying opposite; (land) spread before”), derived from contra (“against, opposite”). It most likely entered English language after the Franco-Norman invasion during the 11th century.
In English the word has increasingly become associated with political divisions, so that one sense, associated with the indefinite article – a country – is now a synonym for state, or a former sovereign state, in the sense of sovereign territory or district, native land. Areas much smaller than a political state may be called by names such as the West Country in England, the Black Country (a heavily industrialized part of England), Constable Country (a part of East Anglia painted by John Constable), the big country (used in various contexts of the American West), coal country (used of parts of the US and elsewhere) and many other terms.
The equivalent terms in French and other Romance languages (pays and variants) have not carried the process of being identified with political sovereign states as far as the English country, instead derived from, pagus, which designated the territory controlled by a medieval count, a title originally granted by the Roman Church. In many European countries the words are used for sub-divisions of the national territory, as in the German Länder, as well as a less formal term for a sovereign state. France has very many pays that are officially recognised at some level, and are either natural regions, like the Pays de Bray, or reflect old political or economic unities, like the Pays de la Loire. At the same time the United States and Brazil are also pays in everyday French speech.
A version of country can be found in the modern French language as contrée, based on the word cuntrée in Old French, that is used similarly to the word pays to define regions and unities, but can also be used to describe a political state in some particular cases. The modern Italian contrada is a word with its meaning varying locally, but usually meaning a ward or similar small division of a town, or a village or hamlet in the countryside.
The term country is frequently used to refer to sovereign states. There is no universal agreement on the number of countries in the world, since a number of states have disputed sovereignty status. There are 206 total states, with 193 states participating in the United Nations, two observer states and 11 other states (if the Cook Islands and Niue are included, although they haven't declared their independence and are in free association with New Zealand). All are defined as states by declarative theory of statehood and constitutive theory of statehood. The latest proclaimed state is South Sudan.
Although not sovereign states, England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland are referred to as separate countries, which collectively form the sovereign state known as the United Kingdom. The degree of autonomy of non-sovereign countries varies widely. Some are possessions of sovereign states, as several states have overseas dependencies (such as the British Virgin Islands (United Kingdom) and Saint Pierre and Miquelon (France)), with citizenry at times identical and at times distinct from their own. Such dependent territories are sometimes listed together with sovereign states on lists of countries, and may be treated as a country of origin in international trade, as Hong Kong is.
