About the Post

Author Information

My name is Scott and I like to travel. There I said it, wow that does feel better. There is probably a program for my affliction somewhere. I am what I would consider a Normal Guy. I am a native Arizonan, sometimes we are called “Zonies”. I am in my mid 40′s and enjoy a great life. I am self employed and have a wonderful daughter and Partner. Although I would say my life is a fairly normal one, I am also quite lucky in that I have the ability to travel and enjoy the world, I enjoy learning about other cultures and experiencing the world around us. I want to be right upfront about the type of travel I enjoy and the type I don’t. You will probably not ever read a story of about me backpacking my way through the serengeti during the height of summer, nor will you probably read any stories of me sleeping in the presidential suite of the Ritz Carlton in Paris. I am not a budget traveler, nor am I an uber luxury traveler, I fall somewhere in the middle, where most people fall I believe. I started this blog for the sole purpose of sharing my stories, my views and my excitement for traveling around this world with my friends, family. However it doesn’t stop there for me, I also wanted to make friends with others around the world, those who travel and those who dream of travel. Blogs and Websites evolve over time, mine will no doubt expand over time as well please come back and see what has taken place. However if you have come to my blog to schedule a flight or a hotel, this is not the place.

The largest swimming pool in the world think you know where it is?

What is a resort without a swimming pool?  Well it’s boring, and that is why nearly every resort in the world has some sort of swimming pool or water feature that you can wade into and relax.  Some will use the Resort pools for relaxation, some for simply sitting next to and capturing those fantastic sun-rays.  And yet, others will use it as part of an exercise program.  However, I would dare any of you to actually swim laps in this pool.

The World’s largest Pool.  Located in Chile at the San Alfonso del Mar Resort in Algarrobo, Chile.  Costing more than $1 Billion Dollars to build, holding more than 66 million gallons of water.  Covering nearly 20 acres, 115 feet at it’s deepest level.  The water for the Pool is not fresh water, it’s pumped in from the Ocean and is controlled to maintain it’s beautiful turquoise color, also maintaing a comfortable temperature which is 8-10 degrees warmer than the ocean.   It is a thing of beauty, technology and a modern marvel.

Happy Travels

    Hi Scott,
    Never been to there so thanks for sharing pictures and video of world’s largest swimming pool with others also. I have been doing swimming since last 2 years and found great to deal with depression and anxiety. Swimming makes heart and lungs strong and strengthen back, arms and shoulders muscles.
