How to Stay Safe While Traveling. No matter how well you can swim or dive, there are places you should definitely avoid and never visit while traveling to stay safe. Some have treacherous underwater rocks, flows, and tides, while others have gained notoriety for the legends of monsters and mysterious creatures dwelling in their depths. In this video, you'll learn all about the most dangerous and terrifying bodies of water you should never ever go swimming in. The Strid 0:50 The River Wharfe in Yorkshire, England has an extremely narrow part called "the Strid", which is a local variation of "stride". The Wharfe itself has an extremely strong current, and due to the narrowness of the Strid, that current gets even stronger in this area. That same powerful current has also weakened the banks of the Strid and undercut them from below. People who were unlucky enough to fall into the Strid or ignorant enough to try and enter the water were instantly pulled to the bottom. Over the years, nobody who’s gotten into the river has ever made it out alive. Kipu Falls 3:07 Kipu Falls, until they were closed to the public in 2011, were an extremely popular place for swimming and diving. Witnesses recount some swimmers peacefully bathing in the pool at the bottom of the falls that simply drowned without any obvious reason. They just all of a sudden disappeared under the surface never to be seen again. The locals believe that the water spirit Mo'o drags people down because it doesn't like to be disturbed by noisy tourists. Hanakapiai Beach 6:26 Hanakapiai Beach looks deceptively like a paradise on Earth. The biggest danger that would most likely lead to your untimely demise is rip currents. They’re so powerful that even the most experienced swimmer in the world wouldn't be able to get out of their deadly embrace. And due to the geography of the area, if you get caught in a rip current, you won't be able to find a safe place to swim towards: the nearest safe beach is 6 miles away. Exploding Lakes 8:29 There are 3 exploding lakes known to people so far. Lake Monoun and Lake Nyos in Cameroon and Lake Kivu in Rwanda. These lakes appeared over pools of magma separated by a dam of volcanic rock. From time to time, magma releases methane and carbon dioxide right into the water. In 1984, 37 people suffocated to death at Lake Monoun. And in 1986, an explosion on Lake Nyos killed 1,700 people and 3,500 livestock.

From time to time, magma releases methane and carbon dioxide right into the water. -No one knows why exactly there’s absolutely no life neither in nor around Pustoye Lake, but a fact remains a fact.

Secret offices - On H Street in Washington DC, there’s a dull-looking, 9 storey, tan-bricked, unnamed building. It’s so indistinctive, you could walk past it and not even know it’s there. Secret arsenal - As you’d expect, the Secret Service has the latest in cutting-edge weaponry at their disposal. When you’re dealing with people who want to harm the President, you have to get the job done first time. Not just the President - While protecting the President is the Secret Service's priority, they don’t just protect him. The First Lady, the Vice President, the rest of the First Family, and all former Presidents all receive official protection. They're stuck to the President - When you’re guarding the President, you have to go wherever they go. Literally. Even when the president goes to the bathroom, there’s an armed agent in there with him. Brains over brawn - They don’t call these guys Special Agents for nothing. Secret Service agents used to be primarily recruited from the military, but nowadays they go for brains over brawn. No sworn oath - Contrary to what they tell you in Hollywood movies, Secret Service agents do not swear an oath to lay down their life for the President. Advanced recon - As we heard earlier, the hardest part of the Secret Service’s job is protecting the President when they’re at events with large crowds. Transport secrets - We’ve all seen the Presidential motorcade, the seemingly endless parade of black stretch limos. But, there’s only one President. They know where you are - If you’re interested in the President, it’s safe to say the Secret Service is interested in you. They’re able wingmen - It seems when you're the leader of the free world, you automatically become extremely attractive to the opposite sex.

The White House - We've all heard stories about secret spaces and tunnels under the White House. Some of these may be exaggerated, but there are some hidden places in the famous building at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Abandoned Terminal at JFK - If you've ever visited JFK Airport, you may have noticed one terminal that doesn't appear to have any traffic. Secrets Under Grand Central Station - The famous Waldorf-Astoria Hotel has always been known for its high-class, posh image. Built directly over the Grand Central Station rail lines, the hotel is conveniently close to the train station, but in 1929, someone decided that celebrities needed a secret entrance to avoid what passed for paparazzi in those days. Mount Rushmore - Mount Rushmore is known for its gigantic carvings of four former presidents' faces, but it hides a secret vault. Niagara Falls - If you've visited Niagara Falls, you probably took some selfies by the waterfalls, but did you know you were close to the “Cave of Evil Spirits?” Down the road from the waterfall, there's a small limestone cave by this name. Eiffel Tower - The Eiffel Tower is a famous European landmark, but most people don't know about the luxury apartment at the top of it. Tower of London's Secret Pub - The Tower of London isn't actually a tower but a 900-year-old castle that has historically been used as a fortress and even a hideout for gangsters. Prison Room in Big Ben - While we're in London, there's a secret place hidden in another famous location—Big Ben. About a third of the way up the tower—around 114 steps—you'll find the prison room.
From silly borders in Europe, to the place that separates Brazil from France; These are 21 Unbelievable International Borders ! Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr 9. Chile and Argentina The countries of Chile and Argentina share a long border that stretches north and south and it’s the 3rd longest in the world and longest in south america. Stretching 3200 miles, it’s naturally separated in most places due to the high elevation of the Andes Mountains. Here in this photo we see this christian statue between the two with Chile on the right and Argentina on the left. The final boundary was established in 1984 and signed at the Vatican 7. Spain and Morocco The Spanish port city of Morocco on the continent of Africa, shares a large border with Morocco. Constructed by Spain, in order to prevent, illegal immigration and smuggling they built this border fence. An estimated 700 have made it across and 6 have died due to clashes with moroccan security forces. Spain spent 33 million euros worth of renovations in 2005 and added more razor wire. Some steps were also made to slow down intruders more peacefully but it still remains an imposing international border. 6. Paraguay Brazil and Argentina A little more peaceful boundary, this one is located where all three of these countries meet. The Parana River flows north and south in this photo and the Iguazu river ends when it meets Paraguay. The rivers act as natural boundaries and have served as valuable resources to all three countries. 5. Belgium and the Netherlands Don’t we wish we could all have borders like this? These two friendly EU countries don’t really have any fences, rivers or mountains, and you might not even know when you’re walking into a different country! These two countries both speak the same language, use the same currency! This border, is found in the town of Baarle Nassau with a population of 6,600 people and the border here gets a little bit complicated as you can see from this photo. There are few random pieces of belgium inside this city due to a number complex treaties, land swaps, land sales, and other complex deals especially during medieval times. Today it mainly serves as a tourist attraction it is kind of border nightmare here. 4. Spain and England You not have even known these two countries actually share a border! If you head to the south of spain, not far from Morocco, you’ll notice something seems different about it, like possibly some monkeys. Get ready to swap out your euro’s for pounds and learn some English, because once you're in Gibraltar, you’re in the UK! This land was signed over to Spain under the Treaty of Utrecht in 1713 and was an extremely important naval base for the British ever since. This strategic port, is located on the strait of Gibraltar, which is the only way to enter from the west into the Mediterranean sea. When the Uk decided to leave the EU, more secure boundaries were built, it lead more Spaniard to want to reclaim the land. However a vote was taken, and the citizens here decided to remain British! 3. India and Bangladesh These two countries share quite a complicated border in Southeast Asia, with India nearly surrounding the entire country. If you look closely at it, it almost appears as a young child scribbled on the map and came up with these borders. India shares is a large, fast growing country and Bangladesh is one of the poorest per capita. The way the border is drawn out, it features random pieces of land belonging to India, surrounded by Bangladesh and, makes it rather difficult to defend.in recent years, it’s become one most dangerous borders in the world. A controversial shoot on site policy was enforced and this 10 foot barbed wire fence was constructed that stretches 2116 miles. 2. North and South Korea Also known as the Korean Demilitarized zone, the Korean peninsula is cut in half along the 38th parallel. The 2.5 mile wide border that separates the two nations is one of the more intense international borders in the world and you can feel the tension about to burst at any moment. Both sides of the demilitarized zones are heavily militarized. Despite attempts to keep the two countries from engaging in all out war, some skirmishes have broken out and tunnels have been found that were built by North Korea. This flag here, sits on the North Korean side is 524 feet tall and can be seen from the South Korean side. US Mexico Border Possibly the most controversial border in the world right now, the Mexican-American border can also appear quite shocking when it comes to urban development like we see in this photo. On the right side you see the city of Tijuana, that seems quite densely populated, even to the very edge of the border. The building on the left, on the US side is built to treat sewage from the Tijuana side, so it’s not exactly an area where Americans want to live.
