From Kim Knox Beckius, your About Travel Editor
Greetings, Travelers! As autumn comes to New England, I'm reminded to slow down and admire nature's splendor. If it's been too long since you last escaped the urban jungle or suburban bustle, we'll take you to some of the planet's best places to appreciate nature anew. ~Kim

The Eden Project: Paradise on Earth
More than a mere tourist attraction, the Eden Project in Cornwall, UK, is as astonishing to visit as it is difficult to describe. More than one million plants thrive within its enormous "biomes," which replicate climates from around the globe. Step inside the largest tropical rainforest "in captivity," explore exotic outdoor gardens, spy colorful birds and insects and giant sculptures, and be awed by the diversity of life on earth.

A Cruise That May Change Your World View
The Upper Amazon River basin is still largely unpopulated and unexplored. Cruise the Peruvian section of the river from Iquitos on a small ship, and you will realize how important conserving this area is, not only to communities downstream... but to the rest of the world.
