I visited the Negev Desert in Israel this winter. It’s an extraordinarily beautiful place. This
desert and semidesert region of southern Israel is referred to as al-Naqab by the Arabs and the native Bedouin population of the region.
I had a chance to visit the ancient ruins, remains of the Nabatean civilization. They controlled the trade and spice route between their capital Petra and the Gazan seaports back in 100 A.D. Here’s the best video of this region that I could find.
Adventurers ‘check into’ the wild with social networking
These days adventure travelers rely on apps and social networking to track their progress and share experiences with friends and the online community.
Parker Liautaud, now 17, became the first person to “check into” the North Pole via the location-based social networking site Foursquare in 2010. Since then he’s been tweeting and posting on Facebook about his travels. In April he will be broadcasting his next adventure to the North Pole using Ustream to beam his trip worldwide live on the web.
