The wondrous Mount Olympus, Greece’s highest peak, is one of the country’s main attractions.

The mountain was a central setting in Greek mythology, as it was the site of Zeus’ throne and the dwelling of the Olympian Gods.

Located off the east coast of Canada is Newfoundland, a large island that forms one of the four Atlantic provinces of the nation, which also include Labrador. The island is known for producing some of the world’s most breathtaking icebergs.

Every spring and early summer, about 25,000-40,000 icebergs break off from glaciers in western Greenland. The icebergs then propel their way into the Labrador Current and travel for about two to three years to the eastern edges of Newfoundland and Labrador to become grounded off these remote coasts.
