Restless? No more. Scratch the explorer itch with a journey through the most extraordinary hidden treasures in the world. Adapted from the #1 New York Times bestselling book, and the cult-favorite website (with an online community of more than 6 million visitors monthly), there's an unexpected discovery every month, stunningly illustrated in retro, mid-century style posters: the Antarctican Blood Falls, a waterfall that's been trapped beneath a glacier for 2 million years. The Cave of Crystals, a Mexican mine filled with shards of selenite that are up to 39-feet long. The massive, Communist-era Brutalist Monuments of the Eastern Bloc. It's a year of wonder and wanderlust for lovers of travel and adventure.
