Shipwreck and Blue Caves tour 

The shipwreck beach also called as Navagio on the Greek island. The beach is indeed the most beautiful in the world, granted that it’s viewed from the edge of the cliff that surrounds it.

In order to get the best view of the shipwreck beach you must see it from the top of the limestone cliffs surrounding it. It’s not possible to climb from the sea level. The only way to get there is by land. The best way is to step on the pebbles and swim in the turquoise blue waters, there is only one way by sea .There are also tour companies that offer a boat trip to this beach.

Shipwreck beach is the most commercial place on the island; you have to be quick during a visit on this beach. You take a tour go there to take a swim, click a few photos and in 20 minutes you must leave because the next ship is full of tourist waiting there.

Blue Caves are quite popular phenomena that can be found not only in Greece, it is also found in Malta, Montenegro, Albania, and Brazil. But those in Zakynthos were absolutely spectacular with limestone arches, turquoise water that seemed glowing from the bottom of the sea and abundance of colourful fish. One can also enjoy a bit of swimming and snorkelling. The blue caves have also interesting arches created by erosion along thousands of years, which allow you to go through these caves and get actually surrounded by this surreal environment. However there is one way of being a part of that marvellous scenery apart from getting surrounded by the caves arches. The blue caves are obviously the soft spot for those who like diving.

For those who are not fond of diving, this trip is a good excuse to sail as well as to get away from the town and enjoy this peaceful place with such stunning views.

Nightlife of Zakynthos is shared in two parts, depending on people’s preferences. For those who wish to pass a quiet evening, Zakynthos centre and Vassilikos villages are the ideal locations. You can enjoy a dinner under the sounds of Zakynthian cantara in one of the restaurants that exist.

The trip to New Zealand would not be complete without taking a look at New Zealand’s National bird- the kiwi. They are nocturnal, tiny and extremely fast runners. They are also on the verge of extinction. You can make a camp and set out through the ferns after dark to try and spot one but it is a lot easier to visit one of the many kiwi houses on the south island.

Some well known birds are: Kea, Weks, Tui, Morpork Owl and Blue Penguins.

Sea life: New Zealand has abundant and diverse marine life. Whale watching and swimming with dolphins are the two of our most highly recommended experiences. The small Hector’s dolphin is the world rarest dolphin .The greatest thing in New Zealand is that you can swim with the dolphins in their natural environment. Dolphins are also curious of us as we are of them. Swimming with wild dolphins in their natural habitat can be a dream comes true here, while others will be amazed by Penguins, seals, or gannets colonies.

Few parts of New Zealand are covered with national parks, forest areas and reserves. Out of which few national parks contain an incredible variety of unspoiled landscape vegetation. These parks are administered and maintained by the department of conservation. They also provide opportunity for a wide variety of activities including hiking, mountain, biking, skiing and snowboarding, kayaking and trout fishing.

There are no dangerous animals in New Zealand: Unlike New Zealand neighbours Australia there are no animals out here that are out to kill you. There is however three types of spider that can hurt if they bite, the white tailed spider, red back spider and the kapito spider.

Wildlife activities in New Zealand: Activities involving Wildlife are like going to see the animals or birds in their natural environment, a truly rewarding experience especially because you get to see how they naturally behave.

Spending hours watching the spectacle of nature takes place right in front of your eyes will make your trip simply unforgettable.

Tips for Beating Jet Lag

 Jet Lag
Travelling by plane is not at all enjoyable. Especially people with sleep problems, jet lag can wreak havoc on your sleeping patterns. Anyone who flies through multiple time zones has to adjust with the biorhythmic confusion known as jet lag. How to prevent jet lag becomes easier when we understand how our bodies work. Our bodies are naturally programmed to do a number of things throughout a 24 period, such as eating and sleeping. Adjusting with different time zones can play havoc with our bodies, leading to extreme fatigue along with indigestion, bowel problems, loss of appetite, memory and concentration issues.

Jet lag can vary depending on our age, state of health and stress level.

How can we make adjusting to new time zone simpler and how can we help our bodies cope with the effects of long haul flights are few tips shared below.

Hydrate: dry and pressurized airplane cabins can quickly dehydrate you, making you feel extremely sleepy. Drinking water throughout the trip helps ease that process. It doesn’t stop jet lag but it helps make sure dehydration doesn’t affect your fatigue. Try to avoid alcohol and anything caffeinated during your flight. Both can dehydrate your body mess your internal clock and exaggerate jet lag symptoms.

Shift your time for long trips: knowing how to prepare for a long haul flight can help you start your holiday feeling fresh, rather than fatigue. If you are someone with a rigid schedule at home, try to relax that schedule during the days before you leave to another country. Try to shift your sleep schedule one hour each day. Try to alter your meal times. If you’re flexible about such arrangements you’ll start your trip abroad with a major advantage. It really pays off.

Sleep: if you can slap on the plane even for few hours it makes a big difference. So when you land you are fresh.

Avoid naps: Try to stay awake during your new time zone till you go to bed. It can be painful but it really is necessary to make the rest of your trip enjoyable and productive. The fresh air and sunshine make it much easier to stay awake than if you’re stuck inside.

Have an egg: Looking for another delicious way to beat jet lag. A protein rich meal in the morning will boost your brain what it needs to produce neuro chemicals to increase your alertness throughout the day.

Split up the trip: Try to make a stopover between two flights, so your body has more time to adapt to the new routine. This can also slash the price of your airfare.

Don’t be tempted for that afternoon nap: Honestly you need to try your hardest to keep everyone awake. A long afternoon nap is going to stop you sleeping at night and then you will end up in an ongoing vicious circle. I know this is tricky- especially with young children which are bend, pushed around in a buggy. If they do fall asleep try to only let them take maximum one hour nap at a time. Trying to stay awake at the right time is one of the hardest challenges of jet lag,

Sleeping pills are a no: Relying on sleeping pills for a long haul flights is a bad idea. They’re not worth it. They’ll do nothing to come out from your jet lag but will just leave you feeling fuzzy when you land. If you’re in need of some, shut your eye, do it the natural way. Unlimited free hot water is one of the best in flight freebies, so why not try you own herbal tea bags.

So you’ve worked out how to beat the jet lag and you’re ready to explore the world. Why not try these few basic tips.

But there are certain experiences everyone needs in their lives that make them evolve as a PERSON. It is necessary that we can all live our lives to their absolute fullest by taking every opportunity to try something new that comes our way, something that makes us scream, something that makes us think, something that make us feel completely different to our normal lives. Here are few things every man needs to experience before dying.

Living in a strange country: going somewhere to a new place all alone is something not everyone gets to experience. Do it while you can and discover your true self. So let’s find a beautiful place to get lost in.

Solo travel: There are some places in life where you can only go alone, where you have no family or friends. There is something really interesting about vacationing alone. You can do whatever you want to do, whenever you want to do it, for as long as you want to do it, without having to consider anyone else. People also tend to be very friendly to you when you’re travelling alone. It is a great way to meet new people and make friends from different countries and cultures. So pack your bags and head out on a journey without any company, without the surety of having someone around. The ideas may seem scary, but trust us you’ll discover a new side to your personality.

Go to a night club on your own and make some new friends: All of us get way too comfortable in our daily routines. We hang out with the same people, frequent same place and even stay stuck in the same jobs for years. Step out of your comfort zone pick a night and head out to the city on your own, Hit up some bars and nightclubs where you’ll be forced to talk to people. Otherwise you’ll look like a creeper weirdo if you just stand in the corner by yourself. You’ll be surprised how much fun it can be.

Rage wine war in La Rioja Spain: each year several villages in La Rioja spend an entire day soaking each other in red wine. One of the truly great events of the Spanish summer, the Wine war is a wine fight of epic and historic proportions. In history of the Haro Wine Festival leads to a land dispute between the people of Haro and the neighbouring village, Miranda del Ebro, but in the good humoured but frantic battle that rages, there are no oblivious sides, and no winner or loser, instead the object is perfectly straightforward to squirt, hose, blast or throw some 25000 litres over as many people as possible. You also won’t be spared as a spectator, so you may as well join in.

Try a new restaurant: Eating solo forces you to be mindful of what you’re consuming, allowing you to appreciate subtle flavours and scents while taking your time to enjoy the whole sensory experience, to maximise the effect, don’t fill in the void with electronic or other distractions, keep the focus on the food and how much it is to eat.

Something scary: Everyone should do something that terrifies them at least once in their life like flying on an airplane or going bungee jumping .Think about all the time you spend worrying about something that scares you. If you’re terrified of speaking in public or scared of heights you should try facing them at least once. 

So do what you want to do when you get a chance, don’t wait for tomorrow or someday. If you get the opportunity to-day then opt for it.
