What’s the first thing that comes to mind when the subject is Las Vegas? Land of luxury resorts, casinos, home to great sports events, unusual weddings, and lots of buzz. The clichés are trustworthy, and there are two things you can be sure of about the most densely populated city in the state of Nevada, USA: it is definitely the land of luxury and of buzz. The famous saying is that “what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas”, but we’ll keep no secrets when talking about the main attractions of the fastest growing city in North America. That’s why it’s the home of the residency shows of the music industry’s greatest icons – especially POP – and of the UFC’s super fights.
If you visit Jamaica you won’t be disappointed in the clichés that define the country. The native land of Bob Marley, the greatest reggae singer in history, is faithful to its stereotypes and, when you go out into its streets, it’s easy to come in touch with the musical rhythm on the soundboxes, the easy-going way of life - characterized by the expression “no problem”, often used by Jamaicans - the Rastafari movement – a Judeo-Christian segment that emerged in the country in the 1930’s – and another cultural and legislative relationship with marijuana, where possession and planting are permitted. Neither does the country disappoint tourists in search of a destination to rest in, with no need of drugs, of course, but with a real immersion in nature.
What comes to mind when the subject is traveling? For most tourists all over the world, Paris is one of the main destinations on their wish list.

Ushuaia, seven letters that become nine words when one wants to find what they mean. Ushuaia is described as “the bay that goes deep inland towards the west”, an explanation that comes from its etymology, formed in the Yagan language by joining the words “ushu” and “waia”.
Multiethnic, multi-religious, multicultural and multilingual (although the administration uses English as the main language, no official language is defined, since part of the population adopts French and Mauritian Creole), thus, with these plural features, we can define the Mauritius Islands, multifaceted due to their African, French, Dutch, Creole, Indian and Chinese heritage, from settlers to merchants passing through the sea route. With the highest HDI in Africa, the main island, Mauritius Island, is divided into nine districts: Black River, Flacq, Grand Port, Moka, Pamplemousses, Plaines Wilhems, Port Louis, Rivière du Rempart, and Savaune, added to three other islands: Agalega, Cargados Carajos or Saint Brandon, and Rodrigues.
