The world can be a dangerous place. Depending on where you live, you're reminded of that every time you turn on the TV or read the news.

If you are citizen of the United States there's also another consistent reminder: State Department travel warnings







"We issue a Travel Warning when we want you to consider very carefully whether you should go to a country at all. Examples of reasons for issuing a Travel Warning might include unstable government, civil war, ongoing intense crime or violence, or frequent terrorist attacks. We want you to know the risks of traveling to these places and to strongly consider not going to them at all. Travel Warnings remain in place until the situation changes; some have been in effect for years."





We cataloged all the travel warnings now in effect and created the graphic below to show all the places where the US government doesn't want its citizens going:

Carabao claims to be the sweetest mango in the world and was able to register this in the Guiness book of world records.
