Animals

There are times when you hear about something and just think ‘that’s a great idea, why didn’t I think of that?’ I had that when I first heard about floatworks.

The idea is simple. There is a tank in a room, inside the tank is salty water which you float on. Then you close the tank door and just float for an hour receiving all sorts of benefits that usually takes a long time and a lot of effort to achieve (like a Buddist monk meditating in a temple length). It’s a bit like floating in sea in the dark, but without the drifting off to your doom and getting eaten by sharks bit.

This is a guest post by Liah S Thorley is a travel writer and novelist from the UK. She has travelled extensively and particularly enjoys history and the arts.

The vastness of Canada is enough to boggle the mind, yet sitting next to its louder neighbour the USA, its quiet natural beauty can sometimes be overshadowed. I’d been studying in the USA and had a couple of spare weeks before going back to university in the UK. My time wouldn’t stretch to see the whole country so I had to be selective. The decision was easy – I was heading out West to British Columbia.

Now anyone who is or has been a student knows how hard it is to make ends meet, so you know what I mean when I say I was on the skimpiest budget I have ever had to make do on. I bought the cheapest flight to Vancouver I could find, threw my clothes in my bag and hopped across the border.

If you are after Africa Holidays, you may just be surprised by the options available. From the exotic animals of Madagascar, the Pyramids of Egypt, Desert trekking in the central countries. Beach breaks and nice food can be found in many places, Morocco is a fine example of this in the north west of Africa.

For a bit of culture, many people choose South Africa Holidays. Especially after local development to host the 2010 world cup football tournament.

A Taste of Eden

February 22, 2010 · 17 comments

Today’s adventure was a break from driving very far, a place called Eden looked like a good place to stop. With a population of 3,000 there wasn’t much to do or see, there was however a very nice beach.

I don’t think I need to add any more…

Now this is a catch!

We left to make a move towards Sydney to give our last day a short drive and arrived at Batehams Bay. Population 16,000 this place is a bit bigger then Eden and we arrived by a fishing area for the night. Whilst I was completely unsuccessful at fishing, the guys next to me lost a very large creature (almost 2M long) and managed to catch a sting ray and small shark (seen to the right), kudos to them!
