🥇 Tinago Falls: A Solo Adventure to a Majestic Waterfall in Iligan City by @iamcjestrada

The beauty of Tinago Falls still amazes me even if it was not my first time. The gush of the water falling down towards its basin, the Gatorade-like color of the water, and of course the noisy yet relaxing sound of the water is enough to make my heart pump like a kid. After a few photos, I wore the life jacket and jumped into the water!

🥈 Punting in Cambridge | 康河泛舟 by @itchyfeetdonica

When I first heard about punting, I wondered why they didn't just say boating, so I did a quick search and here is what I learned: Punts are flat-bottomed boats invented in medieval times to be used in waters too shallow for rowing traditional craft. To push off the riverbed, a long pole is used. Punting is the term for this type of propulsion. In the early twentieth century, students in Cambridge, the university town, used punts to transport themselves and their belongings between their colleges and the city center. Punting is now a popular recreational activity, with many punting companies offering guided tours or self-hire options.

🥉 Murlo, the centre of Etruscan civilisation by @silviared945

But Murlo is not only scenic beauty: here you can breathe history and culture. In fact, the village is known for its archaeological heritage, which dates back to Etruscan times. Numerous archaeological finds have been discovered in the area, including an important Etruscan necropolis. For this reason, there are some interesting and important museums to visit, which house unique and precious finds. But that's not all: Murlo also offers the opportunity to immerse oneself in nature, with the Lucciolabella Nature Reserve that extends over about 200 hectares. Here it is possible to hike and admire animal species and plants endemic to Tuscany.
