Many of us share thrilling childhood memories of reading books that made the world feel more vast, mysterious, and magical. To pass along to our children that sense of wonder (and rekindle it for us too!) we joined Dylan Thuras, co-founder of the collaborative global exploration project Atlas Obscura, who brought us an illustrated guide to 100 of the world’s most breathtaking landmarks—both natural and manmade. Thuras unveiled a guidebook to inspire a love of exploration in our kids, taking us on a journey through 47 countries and every continent on earth.
From ice caves to bioluminescence, from the wild waterfalls of Zambia’s Devil’s Swimming Pool or Antarctica’s Blood Falls to the sacred skeletons of Indonesia’s Trunyan Tree cemetery or India’s Skeleton Lake, Dylan invited us to glimpse a collection of the world’s most mesmerizing and mysterious wonders.
Dylan Thuras is the co-founder and creative director of the collaborative global exploration project Atlas Obscura, and a co-author of the Atlas Obscura book. He is also the co-host of Atlas Obscura’s YouTube series “100 Wonders.”
