Boasting over 2,600 miles of untouched coastline, wild yet beautiful national parks, towering volcanoes and indigenous wildlife, Chile is undoubtedly a photographer's dream. From the urban vibrancy of Santiago to the magic and mystery of Easter Island - these are just some of the places every budding photographer or prolific instagrammer should add to their bucket list...
States, businesses, and global civil society must take action to neutralise this pandemic of violence and threats and to integrate a human rights approach into the interactions between the state, business, and civil society.

Are you one of the lucky ones who happen to be flying over to Rio to watch the Olympics and Paralympics this summer? But not entirely sure as to how to prepare for it? Well, here are some excellent tips which will help you stay as safe, healthy and street-wise as possible during your time in Brazil!
Your campaign is beautiful and I am a firm supporter but the truth is that even if our tiny little island nation legalises every narcotic, psychedelic and hippy plant there will still be hundreds of thousands of kidnappings, mass murders and mutilated, decaying bodies left in the streets across Central, South and North America.
Although England were kicked out disappointingly early, many of us have still been following the World Cup, which has dominated our television screens for the past month.

Continuing south by bus, we landed in the Miraflores distric of Lima. This was the perfect place to recharge before heading up into the Andes Mountains.
When visiting Peru, don't miss a visit to the city of Cusco and the Sacred Valley. It is in this region where you can experience truly authentic Peruvian cuisine and sample more than seven ancient super-foods that were known to provide energy and sustenance for the labor-intensive life of the Incan warriors and farmers of long ago.
Smug travellers will regale you with tales of how they got off the beaten track and how they avoided the major sites and discovered a part of a city or country other tourists never got to see.
