Care for an island getaway? Are you ready to discover a secluded island that has white and pink-sand beaches and bright, blue, crystal waters? Pack your bags and head to the South Pacific. There you can find a place known as Tikehau- an enchanting paradise that is considered one of  the most beautiful islands in French Polynesia.

Tikehau, which means “Peaceful Landing” is a 27-km long, ring-shaped reef (atoll) located at the Tuamotu Archipelago. From above, Tikehau appears like a gigantic swimming pool because it surrounds a turquoise, oval-shaped lagoon, which is abundant with marine life.

In 1987, a research group led by Jacques Cousteau discovered that this lagoon has a greater number of  fish species compared to any other island in Tuamotu. Tikehau’s lagoon is perfect for fishing, snorkling, diving, and boating.

With a population of merely 300, Tikehau is definitely a peaceful and quiet refuge for those who want to escape the busy streets of the metropolis.

Modern advancements in technology have helped shape today's society. It has made our lives easier by allowing faster communication and easier access to information. However, in spite of all the benefits that we've gained from technology, there are also drawbacks. People have become more inclined towards their gadgets and less engaged in the real world. Nowadays, it is not uncommon to see a group of people sitting beside each other but are communicating via Facebook. It kind of sucks, right?

Cinthol, a personal care products brand, aims to change such kind of thinking. They are advocating a world that does not depend on computers and mobile phones. Their latest ad campaign entitled Alive is Offline gives us an idea of what we are missing when we spend most of our waking hours tethered to our phones.

Well, Christoph Rehage is different. He set an extreme goal for himself, and that is to walk from Beijing, China to Germany. That's definitely a unique way to travel across two continents.
