A woman who missed a day at "the most magical place on Earth" because she was sick had her unused ticket accepted - 22 years later.
Chelsea Herline was aged four when she had to skip the final day of her family's 1994 trip to the Walt Disney World Resort theme park in Florida due to sickness.

Aboard a Russian tourist vessel, the "captain" works hard to make sure everything is shipshape.
Dressed in a smart uniform, complete with a captain's hat, he keeps watch on the captain's bridge every day from midnight to 4am, reports RT.

Named "Sailor", he is, in fact, an exotic shorthair who has been working with the ship's human captain, Vladimir Kotin, since 2008, says RT.

On the sunny shores of Cenderawasih Bay in Indonesia, local squid fishermen spend months on rickety wooden platforms, hoping to land as many large catches as possible. These platforms often attract an abundance of marine life, which in turn draws the attention of whale sharks, considered good luck by the local people.
